Abstract: It is proven that a stationary process of pairwise independent random variables with values in a separable metric space is weakly ergodic, i.e. each random variable is independent of the system of invariant sets of the process. An example shows that a process of identically distributed pairwise independent random variables is in general, however, not weakly ergodic.
