Hundreds of students gathered at Korai Square in front of the Propylaea in Athens, protesting against a bill proposed by the Minister of Education that would return police to university campuses for the first time since the fall of the military dictatorship in 1974. Police kettled the crowd, preventing a march from occurring, but did not arrest any protesters.
Hundreds of students gathered at the Propylaea in Athens to demand the repeal of a law recently passed by the Ministry of Education which reintroduced police to universities for the first time since 1975, after which dozens were arrested at the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki during a student occupation of the rector’s office.
Dozens of protesters gathered in the Chilean city of Talagante after a femicide occurred that morning, with demonstrators facing off with police and demanding justice to be exacted against the perpetrator. A banner was also unfurled during the march, reading “Quien ama no mata, no humilla, ni maltrata”.
Around 300 protesters in Thessaloniki marched to demand the repeal of a law passed by the Ministry of Education in February which enabled police to re-enter universities after their presence was banned with the fall of the military dictatorship in 1974 after a student uprising at the Athens Polytechnic.
