Thomais Papaioannou, former Paris correspondent of the Greek public broadcaster ERT, will also be present.
On June 11th 2013, the Greek government unexpectedly closed down the public broadcaster, ERT. After 75 years of continuous broadcasting, all radio and television frequencies were suddenly silenced, leaving only a blank screen – a move which shocked Greek viewers and caused waves of international reaction.
