1/ AMNA, the 🇬🇷state-owned news agency, has a unique ability to make events go unreported – and therefore effectively not to have happened.

Its role is crucial because the business model of *hundreds* of 🇬🇷 websites is based solely on the reproduction of its alerts.

A thread 🧵
2/ As months-long, well-documented investigations on the #pushbacks of asylum-seekers were published by credible foreign media, AMNA maintained silence.

It does not take the same attitude when the same outlets ...

3/ ... publish short articles praising the beaches of a 🇬🇷 island - these are often grounds for an alert that is then republished on hundreds of websites.

In this op-ed published by @we_are_solomon & @VoxEurop we present 2 examples of @amna_news unique ability to curate reality.

The electoral law in #Greece & why changing it (again!) now would be another hit to the already suffering #democracy 🧵

Greece does not have a stable electoral system enshrined in its constitution. This means that electoral laws can & do change from time to time. 1/
Since the 1974 restoration of democracy, Greece has mostly used a so-called ‘reinforced proportionality’ system that is proportional only in name, as it tends to disproportionately benefit the largest party & excludes smaller ones due to a 3% threshold for entering parliament. 2/
The long-established parties of the post-authoritarian era (ND & PASOK) have historically tended to tweak or change the electoral law with the aim to undermine opponents & benefit themselves. 3/

Sta parlando #Draghi. Conferenza stampa dopo vertice con #Sanchez, #Costa e #Mitsotakis.

Chi vuole può seguire sul mio profilo le dichiarazioni del premier.👇
#Draghi: "Oggi è la Giornata delle vittime del Covid: voglio ricordare tutte le persone che sono morte durante la pandemia, quelle che ancora soffrono per le conseguenze della malattia e i loro cari. A voi tutti la vicinanza del governo e la mia personale".
#Draghi: "La presenza dei premier di Spagna, Portogallo e Grecia è la conferma della grande amicizia tra i nostri Paesi".

Es ist unglaublich wie sehr sich die Situation verschlechtert hat, für people on the move, Einwohnenden und Volunteers. Ein Bericht von Bewohner:innen #Lesvos über die Terrorherrschaft der Regierung #Mitsotakis ⬇️
Eine quick & dirty Übersetzung. Original:…
1 Bewohner von Mytilini: "Die Rückführung wurde von Sicherheitskräften vorgenommen - Wir haben Angst, den Flüchtlingen Decken zu geben"
2 Wir haben viele Flüchtlinge gerettet.
Heute trauen wir uns nicht einmal, eine Decke zu geben, sie werden uns für Menschenhändler und Spione halten.

The Greek conservative government of Kyriakos #Mitsotakis has managed the 1st wave of #pandemic efficiently, however, its policies have been erratic, inconsistent, or even straight catastrophic since. The latest story revealed by @EFSYNTAKTON today is truly hard to believe. 1/
As documented in the relevant report, in October 2020 & with Greece seeing the rise of a devastating 2nd wave of the pandemic, 4 persons from the Fenerbahçe entourage were let through, even though they had fever & were thus suspect of carrying #COVID19… 2/
The dialog between the officer on the ground & the person in charge from Civil Protection is revealing:

"- 4 persons from Fenerbahçe's entourage have fever
- Let the team through
- Are you sure?
- Chardalias' orders, get on with it, in the Pakistani number" 3/

I don't do this often so please bear with me. Here's a thread about the alarming developments in #Greece & #New_Democracy's hard-right/#authoritarian turn.👇This photo by D. Tosidis (credit: EPA-EFE; Source:
ANA-MPA) can act as an intro to the thread. 0/…
So, is #New_Democracy govt driving #Greece towards democratic backsliding? Today after we witnessed yesterday's disgraceful images of #police brutally attacking & arresting protesting students inside the country’s biggest university is a sadly fitting day to pose the question. 1/
If we take #Hungary & #Poland as exemplary cases in the literature & as points of comparison, the answer is likely to be yes. The most common symptoms of democratic backsliding mentioned by scholars seem to be manifesting in #Greece since July 2019 with disturbing consistency. 2/

Greek PM #Mitsotakis violated again (!) the #COVID19 rules. He visited Ikaria island, where he participated at a big gathering at the house of a local MP with 30 other people, breaking the rules against household mixing, social distancing & mask-wearing.…
The incident is truly shocking & was reported on the very same day that the #Mitsotakis government put around half of Greece under tighter lockdown measures, with curfews starting as early as 18:00.
The government's tight control over public & private #media resulted in the effective 'burying' of the story. This would have made headlines in most European countries. This is indicative of the worrying decline of public scrutiny & contestation in the country under this govt.

@kmitsotakis : Σημαντική η σημερινή ημέρα για την ΔΕΗ. Από σήμερα αλλάζει. Τολμώ να πω έχει αλλάξει εδώ και 14 μήνες
@kmitsotakis : Ανακτά η ΔΕΗ τον προωθητικό και κοινωνικό ρόλο για τον οποίο δημιουργήθηκε. Ισχυρός βραχίωνας ανάπτυξης της χώρας, αλλά ταυτόχρονα στήριγμα και των νοικοκυριών και των επιχειρήσεων της.
@kmitsotakis : Η ΔΕΗ βρέθηκε από το χείλος της χρεοκοπίας στη λειτουργική κερδοφορία. Τα έκτακτα κυβερνητικά μέτρα τα οποία κληθήκαμε να πάρουμε, έσωσαν την εταιρία από την κατάρρευση.

Elezioni #Grecia, avviso ai populisti italiani e di tutto il mondo: il popolo è pronto a vendicarsi di #Tsipras, il leader di #Syriza che promise questo mondo e quell'altro. Per poi consegnare il suo paese alla Troika
@finanza_com @pelias01 @Miti_Vigliero @ricpuglisi @carloalberto @MaurilioVitto @EugenioCardi @AlienoGentile @albertobisin 1/Stando all'esito del sondaggio Alco, #Syriza avrebbe ora il sostegno del 24,3% dell'elettorato, ben al di sotto di quello di Nuova Democrazia, pari al 34%. #Tsipras, da salvatore è diventato traditore, dicendo sì alla troika
@finanza_com @pelias01 @Miti_Vigliero @ricpuglisi @carloalberto @MaurilioVitto @EugenioCardi @AlienoGentile @albertobisin 2/Ai greci importa poco che tassi a 10 anni siano scesi in misura significativa a partire dal 2015, da quando #Tsipras è diventato premier. I tassi oscillano oggi appena sopra 2%, rispetto al 3,5% di due mesi fa. All'apice della crisi, erano volati al 44%.
