Latest update : 2013-06-13

Outraged employees of the ERT state television broadcaster that was shut down by Greek authorities on Tuesday have continued producing news shows and broadcasting them on the Internet.

The Greek government pulled the plug on them on June 11, but the irate employees of state television company ERT refuse to go home. The company’s journalists are continuing to produce programmes and are streaming them online.

The shows, many of which have focused on the controversial decision to shelve ERT, can now be watched on the station’s website, social networks and the video sharing site YouTube.

Around 2,700 employees were left jobless when the government decided to cut ERT’s signal, a move that has sparked widespread outrage among citizens and calls for a general strike on June 13.
