Yesterday, school students from many schools in Athens and Piraeus demonstrated “for the school that we and the children of the world deserve”
With slogans such as “the education is not a product to be sold, but a right conquered through struggle” and also “the new generation has ideals and cannot be sold out or grovel”, the school students marched with banners showing their demands.
A student-representative from the Coordinating Committee of School Students in Athens greeted the school students and student councils that took the decision to participate in the mobilization. “We unite our voices with the parents and the workers that are under a frontal attack by the government of SYRIZA-ANEL which reduces salaries and pensions by imposing brutal taxes and also placing the Education in the same memorandum context. We cannot tolerate anymore to be freezing cold in the classrooms, to pay a bunch of money and to have a limited leisure time”, he noted, concluding with the Coordinating Committee’s message that “today it’s not the end, it’s the beginning. Today’s rally gives us the opportunity to strengthen our discussion, our reflection and to give solutions to our actual needs, for the school and life that we deserve”.
Representatives from the Vocational High Schools mentioned the particular problems that they are facing, namely the deficiencies and the mergers of specialties, while student’s councils from other schools presented their initiatives to claim their demands and to show their solidarity with the children of the refugees by saying that “It’s wrong for these children who are facing daily the dark side of life to be deprived from their right to education”.

The mass contingents of the Communist Party of Greece (KKE) and the Communist Youth of Greece (KNE) provided a combative atmosphere during the demonstration and marched in a dynamic and organized way, highlighting the relevant character of the Polytechnic uprising, which is to be found in the daily struggles of the workers, youth and people, against the system of capitalist exploitation, NATO, the EU, imperialism.
The GS of the CC of the KKE, Dimitris Koutsoumpas, attended the rally for the 43rd anniversary of the Polytechnic uprising and made the following statements to the mass media:
"The best way to honour the Polytechnic is to continue the struggles against all the governments that have passed memoranda, that have passed and pass antipeople-antiworker measures, like the current SYRIZA-ANEL government, i.e. the real falsifiers of the history and struggles of the Polytechnic and of course all the previous governments of ND and PASOK.
The best way to honour it is to continue the struggle against the capitalist system, which brings crises, wars, poverty and unemployment. It is the struggle against all the imperialist organizations and unions, like the IMF, EU and NATO, until the Greek people and the peoples of the whole world come to power."
