  • [01] March to honor Polytechnic uprising ends

    The rally to honor the 33rd anniversary of the students' uprising at the Athens Polytechnic against the military junta then ruling Greece, came to an end shortly after 19:00 on Friday in front of the U.S. embassy in central Athens.

    The traditional rally began at 17:00 after ceremonies at the Polytechnic. Few incidents occurred during the march between demonstrators and police forces, mainly at Vasilissis Sofias Avenue. A demonstrator was slightly injured during an isolated clash between demonstrators in front of the embassy.

    A total of 5,000 police were on hand to guard against violence, mostly by self-styled anarchist youths that frequently infiltrate protest marches and rallies in Athens.

    Earlier in the day, the Greek Parliament observed a minute of silence in honor of the uprising, with Parliament President Anna Psarouda-Benaki saying that the Polytechnic's message always remained timely.
