The Association of Interpreters of Greek Sign Language protests and condemns the Government’s decision to suspend broadcasting of the Hellenic Broadcasting Corporation (ERT). The Government’s action excludes Deaf and Hard-of-Hearing citizens from information access, violating their constitutional rights. As a result the Greek Deaf community is once again isolated by having no access to information and no right to participate equally in the social and political life of the country. We demand that Deaf and Hard-of-Hearing citizens be allowed access to information of the same quality and to the same extent as was until recently provided by ERT. We demand that the Constitutional Rights of Deaf and Hard-of-Hearing citizens be respected. These rights are part of the Greek Constitution and part of the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities and are recognised by European Union Law.
