Tonight's news from Greece

Although the situation in Greece is gradually fading from the international news scene, the protests have not died down. In some ways there are mutating, spreading, taking different form. In Athens there are a 100 schools under occupation according to the Greek ministry of education.

There were also protests outside 15 police stations in the capital, some were peaceful while others ended up with school students going up against the police.

Here in Thessaloniki about a couple of thousand people marched from the centre to the suburbs without incident and despite provocation from the MAT (Greek riot police). I saw local residents cheer them on from their balconies.
