November 15, 2022

ATHENS – The National Technical University of Athens opened its doors on Tuesday for a three-day celebration to commemorate the 49th anniversary of the uprising. On Tuesday, November 15, and on Wednesday, November 16, the gates will remain open from 8:30 until 21:00. On Thursday, November 17, the day of the anniversary, the gates will open at 8:30 and close at 13:00.

The NTUA Senate invited the university community, young people and all citizens to participate in the anniversary events.

“In November 1973, the National Technical University of Athens was at the centre of expression of young people’s anguish and their struggle for education, democracy and freedom. Today it must remain a space for the free movement of ideas, respect for different views, resistance to any lack of democracy and the imposition of opinions and behaviors. This is the timeless message of the Polytechnic rebellion, this must be highlighted in the way it is celebrated, and this is today the collective and individual responsibility of the members of the Polytechnic community”, the Senate’s announcement stated.

As the NTUA noted, the vindication of the students’ struggle 49 years ago is reflected in the progress of the Greek university and the well-being of the country.
