Students Join Anti-Macron Disorder, Set Fires, Block over 100 High Schools

Over one hundred high schools across France have been blocked or otherwise disrupted, with a fire seriously damaging one school in Toulouse, as students protest education reforms.

Student protests continued Tuesday following action that broke out nationwide at 188 schools on Monday in solidarity with the Yellow Vest movement against Macron’s fuel carbon tax and other reforms.

Students and high school unions have called for the abandonment of changes to the French high school qualification, the baccalaureate, and other measures introduced for entry to university.

“We have our own reasons for striking, but the anger comes from the same source as the Yellow Vests. The government has made destructive reforms. It is worth mobilising with them, ” Louis Boyard, head of the UNL high school union, told Agence

France-Presse(AFP), and called to block “all high schools” Friday.
