This Week: Interview with Christina Papadopoulou of the Time Bank of Athens + News from The Press Project

Trapeza XronouThis week on Dialogos Radio, the Dialogos Interview Series will be presenting an interview with Christina Papadopoulou of the Time Bank of Athens and Syntagma Square.  The Time Bank of Athens was established in 2011 from within the indignants’ protest movement in Athens, and since that time, it has operated an alternative economy based on the exchange of time and services instead of money and currency.  In this week’s interview, Papadopoulou will talk about the Time Bank, about the services which are typically exchanged between its members, and about the future goals of the Time Bank.

PRESS PROJECTAlso this week, we are excited to announce the launch of our new collaboration with the well-known and reputable Greek news portal The Press Project and the English-language Press Project International.

Hear this extremely interesting interview and the news from Greece presented by The Press Project, this week only on Dialogos Radio!

New Article: Greek Government Sends Riot Police on Overnight Raid of ERT

logo-ertDuring the overnight hours of Thursday, the Greek government, in an unprecedented move in any democratic or free society, sent riot police to invade and vacate the headquarters of ERT, Greece’s national public broadcaster, which was officially shut down by the government on June 11 but which continued to be operated by much of its staff since that day.  Despite the very early hour of the raid, which was meant to minimize media coverage of the event, Dialogos Radio & Media reported the story from its earliest moments, and within an hour of the raid, we published the very first article that appeared in any media outlet anywhere in the world on the police raid of ERT.  This article, which appears in the Daily Kos, can be found here:
