At this moment (17.45 GMT+2) heavy riot police forces have encircled the Law School building in Athens, immediately after the decision by the 300 migrants in hunger strike to stay in the building. The migrants’ assembly decided they would stay despite the demand by university authorities and the government that they move out. The assembly justified the decision based on the fact that the building used by the migrants is unused by the university (under construction) and that the building proposed for the transfer does not meet basic hygenic conditions and also it would be guarded by police forces that wouldn’t let people in solidarity to help the hunger strikers!
It is very likely that the riot police will now attempt to violate the academic asylum and raid the Law School.
