The Athens Polytechnic uprising in 1973 was a massive demonstration of popular rejection of the the Greek military junta of 1967-1974November 17

On November 14, 1973 students at the Athens Polytechinc(Polytechneion) went on strike and started protesting against the military regime (Regime of the Colonels).

The uprising began on November 14, 1973, escalated to an open anti-junta revolt……

…..and ended in bloodshed in the early morning of November 17 after a series of events starting with a tank  crashing through the gates of the Polytechnic

November 17 is a holiday in Greece for all educational establishments. Students and politicians lay flowers on a monument within the Polytechneio on which are inscribed the names of Polytechneio students who killed.

This year our school celebrated the memory of the Polytechnic with a theatrical performance…

…and songs dedicated to this day
