Students are due to protest in Athens on Friday, October 9, against remote-teaching practices and the lack of funds for the education sector. Participants are expected to gather in front of the Ministry of Education from 12:00 (local time). Although the event is expected to be well attended, it is likely to remain peaceful.
A heightened security presence and localized travel disruptions should be anticipated in the vicinity of the protest.
Those in Athens are advised to monitor the situation, anticipate transportation disruptions, and avoid all protests or demonstrations as a precaution.
