Publicerat Utländska medier , , , ,

Östgruppens (Swedish Human Rights Organisation) Chairman – Martin Uggla – is calling SVT to withdraw Belarus from Eurovision 2013. The “We Are One” concept of Eurovision 2013 is being called into question by the organisation. Uggla is claiming that the Belarus National Television Broadcaster is part of the larger political regime that he sees as being “repressive – They are working very actively to discourage pluralism and freedom of expression. Democratically minded journalists have virtually no chance of working in the television company”.”
