this is a really good trolling act: someone bought the rights for the domain of NERIT, the channel that will (?) displace ERT in the future.
now at nerit.gr you can watch a stream out of the occupied ERT studios. more there is a suggestion to try a different domain, which is an insider joke about samaras.
(…) this specific uprising should not exclusively be understood as a Turkish phenomenon. It cannot be interpreted strictly as an isolated example, neither as a predictable event. We acknowledge that the situation at the moment is solely in the hands of (indeed heterogeneous) Turkish society. We cannot predict whether it will fade out, leaving an important legacy for the future, although it will cause serious social and political upheavals within the country or whether it will fuel a genuine revolutionary movement able to spread to the rest of Europe, especially the neighbouring Greek territory. Whatever happens, however, this revolt (such like every revolt) marks the beginning of a new (probably long) process, whilst the new reality born in the streets is a key element that points out the solidarity among the people against the everyday normality where competition against each other takes place. This cannot easily be erased no matter if the demagogic ‘political’ bureaucracies attempt to hijack the movement, directing it in favour of their own interests. Nonetheless, the time where this kind of solidarity has to overcome national borders and spread all across Europe (and the rest of the world) has arrived.
Demagogues, hate preachers, fundamentalists, self-called prophets, historians of parody and propagandists have for years attempted to convince us that the two peoples (Greece and Turkey) are enemies to each other, that they have nothing in common except the sword. That we should be always available to give our lives in the “upcoming war against our bad neighbours” looking for the revival of past glories. It is undeniable that the geopolitical rivalry between us has fed hatred and tensions for centuries. Not only, however, do we refuse to look at history, but we believe it is time to review it and at the same time rethink about this rivalry contracted from above. Now the old-fashioned empires have collapsed but the new “pashas” and “kings” who have profit and the markets as their weapons continue to exploit people, promoting the interests of the oligarchies, while the ordinary citizen experiences the same oppression, impoverishment and humiliation in order to raise the interests of the market and those who derive profit from this predatory system called capitalism. Under these conditions where the entire globe has turned into a financial casino, will we continue to idealize the past closing our eyes to unacceptable working conditions, to the destruction of our natural environment and transformation of our cities into modern prisons of consuming masses which only bow their heads passively to the commands of the bosses? The time to get closer with one another and leave behind the ghosts of the past is here. Only the unity and brotherhood could get us out of this impasse. After all, not only have we nothing to divide us, but instead we have more cultural similarities than differences (contrary to what we have been told). (…)
