A woman lays a carnation at a monument in the courtyard of the National Technical University of Athens, formerly known as the Polytechnic. The monument honors students killed in a 1973 pro-democracy uprising. Thousands of people are expected to take part in a march to the US Embassy to Athens on Wednesday, the 37th anniversary of the deaths during Greece's 1967-74 dictatorship. Most Greeks have not forgiven the US for backing the junta, which collapsed eight months after the student uprising.
