“We asked from Mr. Pelegrinis to use our resignations as he would judge best. Tomorrow there will be no lessons, because we are not going to make lessons with the presence of the police”, Senate’s spokesman, Valsamis Valsamakis announced to the weekly newspaper “To Pontiki”.

And he added: “We ask an immediate meeting with both the Prime Minister and the Deputy Prime Minister in order to give a solution to the problem affecting the Greek universities and therefore we do not accept any administrative employee to be made redundant”.

Meanwhile, administrative employees decided on Monday to go on a 48-hour strike.
