KKE’s Koutsoumbas on Students Rallies

January 28, 2021

ATHENS — "Students, parents, academics, secondary school teachers are cancelling in practice the pretextual prohibitions on Thursday. Just as they will cancel tomorrow the bill that raises new obstacles in studies, intensifies the repression inside and outside the universities," the secretary general of the Central Committee of the KKE, Dimitris Koutsoumbas, said in a statement.

"The government should take back the (Education Minister Niki) Kerameus- (Citizen Protection Minister Michalis) Chrysochoidis bill and open the schools with all the security measures. To stop playing with the anguish of thousands of students and their families. Instead of changing for the worse the way of access to universities, it should take measures for the safe opening of schools", added Koutsoumbas referring to the rallies scheduled for today.
