New York students protested against the SHSAT, a test that students take in 8th and 9th grade to determine their admission into specialized high schools. These tests also have a hand in New York colleges. The SHSAT primarily depletes the admission of students from poor neighborhoods, hence why many demand its abolition.
Thousands of protesters marched after police assaulted a student occupation of the rector’s office in the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, making dozens of arrests while using people out of uniform to attack students. The following march resulted in clashes with Molotov cocktails, firebombs, and tear gas deployed, causing the crowd to flee after the police assault.
