Tension outside the Athens Law School

Tension outside the Athens Law School

Tension escalated on Thursday when police used tear gas to disperse around 30-40 students who tried to enter the Athens Law School.

The School building has remained closed since Wednesday for precautionary reasons ahead of the anniversary of the Polytechnic uprising on November 17.

"Legality will be imposed because the Greek people want it; that is required by Greek taxpayers," government spokeswoman Sofia Voultepsi said on Thursday.
"Those who think that they will enforce the law of the jungle in universities, they'd better realize it once and for all: education areas is one thing and sit-in areas is quite another," she underlined.
