Universities Remain Closed



on strikeAlthough the government seems optimistic that the impasse between university administrative employees and the Ministry of Education will be lifted, it still appears that students are being held hostage by the strikes.

The Ministry of education seems to be backing off. However, despite the meetings between Minister Konstantinos Arvanitopoulos, the rectors and the administrative staff, the latter say that they don’t trust the Minister and his commitments.

Consequently, the employees of the National Technical University of Athens decided to proceed with a new 24-hour strike on Friday and a 48-hour strike starting on Monday.

Sources from the Ministry of Education say, that Arvanitopoulos is willing to meet with the employees of NTUA in order to guarantee that he will follow through with his promises.

The administrative staff of NTUA and their colleagues met at the University of Athens on Thursday morning. Both sides decided to continue mobilizations, announcing a 48-hour strike starting on Monday.

The meeting that took place at the University of Athens had a tense atmosphere. One of the administrative employees who participated in the meeting with Arvanitopoulos, proposed that they end strikes, but that didn’t go over well with colleagues. The argument was so intense that a woman fainted. Luckily, an ambulance arrived immediately to administer first aid.

    Cowardly Internet trolls like you hide behind your anonymous internet connection to behave like a gestapo propagandist. You would never engage in such racist rhetoric to people’s faces because you know talking that way for long enough would eventually end up with you in a world of hurt.

    Being the coward that you are, you instead abuse the safety of your mommy’s modemn. You are such a manipulative coward you can’t even honestly tell people your real roots because you know that would reveal your motives as extreme nationalism.

    Surely you are a great intellect given you waste your life away trolling Greeks morning to night. A gift to mankind.

  6. Nice try. “TediUSA” is not a real name troll. I doubt you have posted your picture. Given your aversion for lying here and your cowardly obsessive racist attacks against Greeks, you would never reveal your real identity. You won’t even admit your real ethnic roots because you know it would reveal your real motives for obsessing over Greeks is extreme nationalism. (aka you are a NAZI)

    As for your stereotypes of …

    “get insight into the Greek dirty collective mind”

    “Uou Greeks don’t like to hear the truth about what little scheming thieves you are”

    “you are conspiring to part the World from its hard earned money”

    “that the World will learn the truth about the Greek constant scams and plans to suck everyone dry”

    …. they all only prove my point what a racist pig you are.
