New legislation is giving the government of Poland control of the state media and the power to directly appoint the heads of public broadcasters. The new law may jeopardize Poland’s voting rights at the European Council.
Many thanks to SWLing Post reader, Andrea Borgnino, who notes that Polish public radio “Jedynka” is protesting this new media law by playing the European Anthem every hour, at the top of the hour.
Andrea shared the following SoundCloud recording via Twitter:
[Small correction/Update: The European Anthem (of course) is being played in protest, not the Polish National Anthem as originally posted. Thanks for noting the mistake, Andrea.]
