Media blackout in Greece on Tuesday as journalists walk out ahead of general strike

There will be a media blackout in Greece on Tuesday, 24 hours ahead of a general strike.

Journalists’ union ESIEA decided to hold the strike in solidarity with the 24-hour action called by Greece’s two largest unions, GSEE and ADEDY, but wanted to ensure there was media coverage of the protest planned for Wednesday.

This led to the journalists’ strike being held on Tuesday. Normal broadcasts of news-related shows will stop at 6 a.m. on Tuesday and resume on Wednesday at 6 a.m. There will be no newspapers available on Wednesday morning.

Government spokesman Simos Kedikoglou expressed frustration that the strike was being held on the same day as the visit of French President Francois Hollande to Athens.
