Students Occupy Troubled University to Protest Police Presence

ATHENS – Students who don’t want police at the Athens University of Economics and Business (AUEB,) scene of repeated violence and trouble, began a sit-on on the campus, ahead of New Democracy government plans to put security guards on school campuses.

Students were unhappy that police arrested six students, three of whom who had been prosecuted before, and who were trying to smash down a wall inside a building to make themselves a squat residence.

The repeat offenders had been allowed to stay in the school as Greek universities experience frequent violence and occupations and a University of Athens law professor was so disgusted by conditions there, including vandalized property and graffiti, that she quit in protest.

The AUEB students said there was a cover-up of alleged criminal offenses by a professor who was beaten by a hooded gang while giving a lecture before saved by other students, and he had to be hospitalized for injuries.

The newspaper Kathimerini said it may have been in response to media reports about cout cases involving the professor, who is being prosecuted for usury and extortion after an indictment was filed against him by a former university colleague.


For Hellenes and Philhellenes, there are a variety places, sentiments, and ideas that draw them to different parts of the Hellenic world.
