High school and university students are gathering on the streets of Paris on Tuesday protesting against admission procedures to higher educational institutions and tuition fees.

Across France, the work of 450 educational institutions have been disrupted. Fifty have been fully blocked. Student unions have said they intend to continue their protests at least until the end of the week.

The student protests strengthened amid an ongoing wave of violent “Yellow Vests” demonstrations in France.

Young people have brought a lot of posters and boxes with inscriptions, among them are: “The police are everywhere, justice is nowhere”, “The number of young people cannot be reduced, but the number of places in educational institutions can be increased”.

Protests by students and schoolchildren have been held throughout France since last week. The students, in particular, oppose education reform that complicates the selection for admission to higher educational institutions, as well as against a significant increase in tuition fees for foreign students.
