Some 52 individuals were detained for questioning during the student protest rally held in central Athens on Wednesday, reported the police.
Police at the parliament’s forecourt were attacked by a group of 200 people, who broke away from the main protest of approximately 5,000 attendees, but were repelled by restricted use of tear gas, the police said in a statement.
Police were thrown molotov petrol bombs a short while later at Propylaia, outside Panepistimio metro station, where tear gas was used again.
Student organizations protested the government’s education bill, which foresees in-campus security forces and amended minimum grades required for university entry. It is scheduled for a plenary vote on Wednesday evening.
