Greek college students angry over reforms that would force them to go to class disrupted a school meeting in Thessaloniki while those at the University of Athens dumped rubbish on a Vice Rector’s desk.

That came as a senior academic resigned in Thessaloniki after a video emerged showing he urged officials to get tougher on students who routinely interrupt university operations.

Yiannis Tzifopoulos quit resigned after he was seen saying that, “I am afraid unless those of us in power become more fascist-like, the Greeks will not change,” he said. “If you misbehave you should get a slap as happens in Germany, Australia, Canada and all the serious countries in the world.”

Tzifopoulos argued that the clips uploaded onto the Internet removed the context from his comments during the interview but his departure didn’t soothe the students.

In Athens, college students piled rubbish on the desk of Vice Rector Antonis Kalokairinos’s desk in protest at measures recently introduced by rector Theodoros Fortsakis.

Education Minister Andreas Loverdos suggestedhat the institution’s authorities should take legal action against those involved. He didn’t suggest taking any action himself against the students.
