Students Hold Protests Across Greece Against Education Cuts

Greek Students protestHigh school and university students carried out demonstrations all around Greece against the Greek government’s reduction of funds in the educational system ‘s budget, and demanded increased funding to schools and universities as well as the addition of more teachers and professors.
A student from the Technical Educational Institute of Piraeus who was protesting in Athens told ANA-MPA that the protest is against the government’s budget, which includes a 20% reduction in expenditures for universities and technical institutes. He noted that these reductions essentially make it impossible for certain facilities such as laboratories to work.
Students also held protests in the city of Thessaloniki, Greece’s second largest city and the city of Irakleio on the island of Crete. Students from high schools and middle schools in Attica had previously held a protest on Monday.
A group of hooded individuals attacked a private education institute while Thursday’s protest was going on in downtown Athens. The group tried to break down the institute’s glass partition and hit some of the students.
