Greek Police forms a case file for the mass students’ rally in Athens

Greek Police (ELAS) is forming a case file for the mass students’ protest rally in downtown Athens on Thursday. The file contains charges that the rally violated the laws forbidding crowding and the recent law banning public gatherings with over 100 people.

Furthermore, there was no official announcement by the organizers to the police about the rally and no responsible organizers were appointed.

The case file will be forwarded to the prosecutor’s office as soon as it is completed.

Some 4,000 students, teachers, parents and members of the public sector union ADEDY marched through the center of Athens on Thursday to protest anti-democratic and authoritarian government measures for universities.

In contrast to previous practices, there was no strong police presence at the rally on Thursday and police refrained from intervening to disperse the crowd or issue 300-euros fines.

PS And the exact purpose of the case file is ….? Bureaucratic obligations?

  1. I think the purpose is —- to spend money that the government doesn’t have —how can they track down those 4000 people? Makes no sense to me.

  2. these politicians and bureacrats are what is out of control. they all need to be in prison for abuse of power, and future exercise of authority strictly limited by explicitly enumerated powers granted to specific branches of government, for a limited and short length of time, and only affirmed or reaffirmed by referendum.

    • You mean democratic governance and the rule of law? No, the epidemic has been a wonderful excuse to abolish that.
