It is the Union national high school (UNL), which had launched an appeal for high school students on social networks. “The angry general is booming since a few days is also shared by the high school student.do.s. It is time that we do hear and listen to” was it written in a post Facebook.
And according to a police source relayed by Le Parisien, “a thirty establishments were disturbed in the late morning”. Several young people have decided therefore to follow the movement in the Hexagon, either in Poitiers (Vienne), Rennes (Ille-et-Vilaine) or Marseille (Bouches-du-Rhône). In total, “of 2,600 participants have been identified,” said the media.
So all in all, the students remained peaceful, it has to be noted that there have been a few incidents. Garbage cans were set on fire in Chambéry (Savoie), according to France Bleu and teens to have launched projectiles at the police at the lycée Langevin, La Seyne-sur-Mer (Var), the CRS would then have used tear gas against them.
Against what to fight ?
If the increase in the price of fuel does not yet have the high school students, they fight, however, for many other subjects. On social networks, the Union national high school (UNL) has also added the hashtags “#ContreParcousup”, “#ContreLeSNU”, “#ContreLaRéformeDesLycées” and “#ContreLaRéformeDuBac” to clarify their claims.
Unhappy with the recent announcements of the president of the Republic Emmanuel Macron, the young people who marched today say they are so against the increase of registration fees at the university, ParcourSup, the reform of the bac, the deletions of posts in the secondary education, but also against the future service of universal national (SNU).
And as for the yellow vests, the teens want to continue the mobilization. They have thus called for a continuation next Monday.
