Greece: 300 university departments occupied by students

September 12, 2011 at 9:50 pm (Building Occupations, Student Occupations) ()

The main building of the Athens School of Economics: The graffiti reads ‘Solidarity to Migrants’ and ‘What the hand of the state cannot reach, can be reached by the knife of the para-state’ referring to the wave of attacks by fascists against migrants, plenty of them taking place in the district of Kypseli where the school is located. The banner reads ‘Occupation’

From The Greek Streets:

It is estimated that circa 300 departmental student assemblies have decided to occupy their departments. The majority of the universities in Greece are occupied by students protesting against the new reform bill. The new bill aims into the commercialisation and privatisation of higher education of the country, into the withdrawal of the academic asylum, the introduction of tuition fees and university managers, amongst other.

Today, is the first school day for high schools, people from the occupation of the Athens School of Economics and Business went to local secondary schools to publicise the demands of the occupation and meet with school students.
