Hundreds of protesters returned to the streets of Girona to demand freedom and amnesty for Pablo Hasel, a left-wing Catalan rapper facing charges for criticizing the monarchy of Spain, the Bourbon royal family. Demonstrators burned barricades and clashed with police, who attempted unsuccessfully to quell the gathering.
Over 900 students gathered in Thessaloniki in a mostly spontaneous demonstration, demanding the repeal of a law that brought police back to university campuses across Greece for the first time since the fall of the military dictatorship in 1974. Despite confrontations occurring after the protesting students were blocked from entering campus, no arrests were made.
Students at the University of Panteion dropped a banner demanding the removal of new fences as well as the halting of the plan to bring back police into colleges & universities. The banner reads, “We left a university full of misery, don’t make us come back to a university full of pigs – No tolerance for repression! Autonomous Initiative of Panteion”
