Universities shut down ahead of events marking 1973 uprising
Several universities in Athens closed down yesterday ahead of events that begin tomorrow to mark the 36th anniversary of the bloody student uprising against the military junta in 1973. The event will be commemorated on November 17 with a protest march from central Athens to the US Embassy. The police have been ordered to maintain a low profile but the rector of the National Technical University of Athens, Constantinos Moutzouris, complained that their presence in front of some buildings was more visible than is necessary.
