Greek students gathered in Athens to oppose a proposed education bill being debated in Parliament, chanting slogans in front of the Propylaea and dropping banners.

The education bill supposedly seeks to improve the quality of tertiary education and eradicate “rampant lawlessness” on campus. A proposed 1000 guards would be sent to universities, who would have every sort of weapon that a normal police officer would minus lethal guns, and would also be in riot gear most if not all of the time; they would be created to fulfill the duties of police, who are banned from universities.
