Thousands in Athens Protest Against Reintroduction of Police to University Campuses

Thousands of students and teachers in Athens took to the streets in opposition to a piece of legislation proposed by Education Minister Niki Kerameos, which would remilitarize university campuses with police for the first time since 1975. Defying the quarantine which banned mass gatherings, demonstrators marched on the Propalyaea in the center of the city. A police presence was mostly absent, and no participants in the protest were arrested.
