Teachers “Invade” Greek TV Station

May 3, 2010. The teachers interrupted the news broadcast and demanded to participate in a TV program with Ms Diamantopoulou, Minister of Education. The TV administration called in the Police Special Forces, who attacked brutally the teachers. Their representative Stathis Katsoulas, member of KOE, was wounded (after the conclusion of the mobilization he was transported to the hospital with his leg broken by the police). However, the teachers resisted and obliged the TV to broadcast live their declaration (see at 7min 30sec). Meanwhile, more than one thousand people gathered outside the TV building, supporting the teachers, and then, at around midnight, marched in the city with slogans against the government, the IMF and the EU.
