The South East Europe Media Organisation (SEEMO) was alarmed to learn about developments in Greece on December 14th.
An event was held in the Journalists Union in Athens with the presence of government officials. Outside of the building, a group of unemployed journalists were protesting, before being violently removed by Greek riot police members. One of the journalists present was allegedly hit by riot police members.
“Freedom of speech and gathering cannot be dismissed by police or any other state institution” SEEMO Secretary General Oliver Vujovic said.
