NTUA, Zografou, Athens

The National Technical University of Athens has always been a place of vibrant political life, being closely associated to the Greek student movement and the struggles for peace and democracy in Greece. The most obvious example of this was the Athens Polytechnic uprising on November 17, 1973, which was the first step to overthrow Greece's military dictatorship.
