The yellow vests : high school students join the movement and to block the high schools

In this day, Friday, November 30, 2018, high school students have joined the yellow vests. Instead of blocking the roads, these young people have therefore blocked institutions. Some incidents have occurred and the Union national high school student has launched a call for a renewal of the motion next Monday.

The high school students join the yellow vests

It has now been two weeks that the yellow vests continue to mobilize against the French government, which announced the hike in fuel prices. A measure that has provoked the anger of a part of the public opinion. Even celebrities are supporting the movement, such as recently the rapper Jul who has displayed his support in a video. And since this morning, high school students also joined the yellow vests, on the eve of the protests on Saturday 1st December 2018 planned throughout France.

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 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.
