Eleftherotypia was Greece’s second-biggest newspaper, a centre-left daily with a proud tradition of independent reporting and opinion. Founded after the fall of the military dictatorship in 1974, its name means “freedom of the press”. With the exception of a couple of special editions brought out by its staff, it has not been published since last December. Its 800 employees – writers, editors, production staff, print and support workers – have not been paid their salaries since last August.
