Students Occupy NTUA Over Indymedia Shutdown

    88B539E1A88C2D1C397282EF5C82D45FA  group of Greek students of the National Technical University of Athens took over the buildings and Network Administration at the school to protest the shutdown of Indymedia Athens.

    Access to the website access was disabled, reportedly on the orders of Public Order Minister Nikos Dendias.

    Along with the university network, the server was providing access to Indymedia Athens, to the online radio stream and website of Radio98FM, a self-organized radio station, which was broadcasting from inside NTUA, as well as Radio Entasi.

    The students claimed the existence of a relevant court order following an accusation of a private radio station that the frequency of their radio inserted the frequency of their own radio station.

    There have been also conflicting reports over who cut internet access at NTUA. Some say state telecom, while others say it was the university dean.
