There was a similar attack attempt by fascists at the same faculty a few days earlier, but it was repelled by TKP members.
"We express our solidarity with our comrades of the Communist Youth and the militant students in Turkey, in the daily struggle they give in the universities for the education and life they deserve", reads a solidarity statement by the Communist Youth of Greece (KNE).
From their side, the New Communist Party of the Netherlands (NCPN) and the Communist Youth Movement (CJB) declare their "solidarity with our comrades and condemn this cowardly attack. After our comrades took their exams, they were attacked by about 25-30 fascists on their way out of the university, two TKP members were slightly injured. We hope for their speedy recovery. Fascism is again showing its ugly face as an enemy of the working class, of progressive students, of communists, fighting for a better society, against the darkness these running dogs of capital are striving for".
