In the picturesque region of Western Thrace in Greece, the Xanthi Minority High School, a beacon of Turkish heritage, finds itself embroiled in a tumultuous saga.
Western Thrace Roars: Minority Rights Rally Against Controversial School Decision

For years, the school has grappled with dire building conditions, and lately, a highly contentious choice – the implementation of a shift-based education system. Even in the face of dwindling student enrollments this academic year, seemingly negating the need for such a drastic measure, the local Director of Secondary Education has inexplicably forged ahead.

In the wake of this divisive ruling, an extraordinary gathering convened, uniting impassioned parents with the School Board. Following ardent discussions, a resolute decision was forged: on the forthcoming Monday, at the break of dawn, precisely 7 a.m., a throng will assemble in front of the venerable school's gates. Thereafter, a march of profound significance is set to unfold, leading a multitude of Turkish minority residents to the streets of the Iskece Municipality and the Governorate, home to the Department of Secondary Education.

This extraordinary demonstration beckons all Turkish minority residents in Western Thrace to stand as one, forging a powerful tableau of unity. The anticipation is that this grand spectacle will resonate far beyond Greece's borders, casting an illuminating spotlight on the enduring struggles of the Turkish minority in Western Thrace and the divisive decisions threatening the very fabric of the Iskece Minority High School.
