U.S. Embassy, French Ambassador Express Condolences for Flood Victims

November 16, 2017

ATHENS – The National Metsovion Polytechnic in Athens remained occupied for a second consecutive day on Thursday, by members of an anti-establishment group who prevented the start of a series of events for the 44th anniversary of the Polytechnic uprising in 1973.

The group’s members remained in the historic buildings of the Metsovio Polytechnic while police were on standby to intervene. The students’ union has asked both protestors and police to depart so that the planned events can be held peacefully, while the 17 November 1973 Celebration Committee asked that the matter be resolved “on political terms” and not by the “forces of repression.”


ATHENS – It's not over 'til it's over and it's not over in Greece – or anywhere – the stubborn Coronavirus' Omicron subvariants making cases soar again just as tourists allowed in without having to abide by health measures are flooding the country.
