Teach­ers back mi­grant pupils

Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

Teach­ers from var­i­ous schools in Oraiokas­tro, a small town near Thes­sa­loniki, yes­ter­day gath­ered out­side the 1st El­e­men­tary School to ex­press their sol­i­dar­ity with a group of refugee chil­dren at­tend­ing af­ter­noon classes there. The gath­er­ing also served as a counter-protest to those by mem­bers of the self-styled Pa­tri­otic Union of Greek Cit­i­zens of Oraiokas­tro, who have staged a se­ries of ral­lies out­side the school ex­press their op­po­si­tion to the pres­ence of child mi­grants there. Ear­lier this week and last, the self-pro­claimed pa­tri­ots tried to chain them­selves to the school en­trance gate in a bid to stop the refugee chil­dren en­ter­ing the grounds.
