Greek Teachers Protest
Athens, Greece

18 Apr 2016

A group of Greek teachers tried to break the police cordon at the Monument of the Unknown Soldier and enter the courtyard of the Parliament as they were protesting on Tuesday evening, April 19th. Eventually some of them, managed to climb the stairs and raise banners with slogans against layoffs. There was some tension with the police forces dressed in riot gear, who subsequently repelled the protesters.
Teachers held a rally in central Athens to protest against cuts to the education budget. In front of the Parliament at Syntagma Square, a group of them hold placards with slogans that read "No to layoffs - Jobs for everyone". The protests are in particular about the failure to hire teachers on permanent contracts. Teachers say that while there are gaps and shortages in teaching staff, the Greek government brings layoffs, budget cuts, and the closure of many kindergartens.
