PIRATES IN ATHENS : “IT IS BETTER TO BE A PIRATE THAN A FASCIST”
Thanassis Gounaris , member of the Board of PPGR and spokesman of the movement for the formation of a Municipal ballot under the name “Pirates in Athens”, aiming to participate in the regional elections, by intervening in a public debate on the issue, recently wrote on the “Pirates in Athens” Facebook page:
“Aside from everything else that has been said to date on the issue of Golden Dawn, is that media need to see what was and still is their contribution in the shaping of public opinion, when they gave help to MPs and staff of this organization by interviewing them on TV shows and newscasts.
Traditional media in Greece always give more publicity, time and promotion to parties within the parliament and indifferent to the parties that are really struggling to implement new ideas. These parties are usually stuck in the “other ” parties of the polls and not given the opportunity to present their positions to the public. However one thing is certain , it is better to be a pirate than a fascist , and even more certain is the ideological gap between Pirates and neo-nazis .
