Breaking - Greece: tension outside the ERT building between the police forces and people - MPs of the Opposition

Police special forces have taken position to act against people and MPs of the Opposition who protest against government and try to get inside the ERT building.

MP with the SYRIZA Opposition party, Zoi Konstantopoulou, asks district attorney to take action!

MP with the Anexartitoi Ellines Rachel Makri stands at the top of the ERTs main entrance!

MPs with the SYRIZA party are threatening to leave parliament building to go to the ERT building!



Continuous updates

The tension came from the attempt of the police to bring inside the ERT building, two technicians from the public television (DT) that illegally created by the government, without the technical equipment being officially delivered to the government. 

Fired workers of the ERT are suspicious about the government intentions, as they afraid that the government may proceed in provocative actions in order to blame them for damaging equipment. 

Fired journalists keep broadcasting outside the building and Opposition MPs mainly from SYRIZA and Anexartitoi Ellines, support them. There is less tension at the moment.

Update (11/11): first loss for the government coalition. MP Theodora Tzakri of PASOK Socialist party voted against government! Tzakri dismissed from PASOK as expected. Government stayed alive against the motion of no confidence with 153 votes. 

Theodora Tzakri's statement: "Current government is characterized by excessive social cruelty and lack of democracy and plan to exit crisis. At the same time, the Greek people are exterminated by the continuous cuts and taxes and, the supposed development is continuously postponed for the future, the only plan of the government is  the communicative handling of the new taxes and new cuts, imposed by the lenders through emails. It is obvious that current government does not have the courage and the moral validity to lead the country out of crisis and memorandums.

The next day must be planned having in mind the fight against the social dissolving factor of unemployment, restoring tax justice, defending state business and including them to a general plan of public investments for the rise of the economy, rescuing social state and, of course, regaining the appropriate and democratic function of parliament. Current decision is only an act of responsibility for the country and for my fellow citizens who trusted me with their vote to deal with serious problems, not to approve lenders' emails."
