Greece -Universities continue resistance -December 01, 2013

Administrative staff in universities went on strike three months ago against government austerity plans that include suspending 1,349 staff, a precursor to large-scale redundancies. The strike brought eight major universities to a standstill, and rectors warned that they would not be able to function effectively with the staff cuts demanded. Most universities are now back operating but although only three universities continued active resistance to the government’s higher education actions, a high degree of opposition exists across the entire academic community.
