Greek education minister fails to show up for school ground breaking ceremony following protests

Anna Dimanatopoulou, minister for education and religion was to be in Sykies for Thessaloniki's first green school (not sure what the ceremony was in aid of as the building was half finished and so it was neither a ground breaking cermony nor the official opening)

But Diamantopolou didn't show up despite having announced her programme to the press. I doubt that the sight of jeering teachers would go down well on TV so she opted out.

It's a a measure of just how unpopular the ruling PASOK party are that they cannot visit any open air event without drawing vociferous protests.
