"things Happened very severe", has indicated the French minister of Education
About 300 educational centres disturbed by the protests
The French minister of Education, Jean-Michel Blanquer, has announced that it will investigate the mass arrest of young people allegedly involved in organized protests next to a high school in Mantes la Jolie and considered "shocking" images of dozens and dozens of them forced by police to kneel.
"The image is necessarily shocking," admitted Blanquer in an interview today at the radio station France Inter in connection with a video that is stirring controversy, recorded this Thursday along at the education center Jules Saint Exupéry airport of that city from the outskirts of Paris.
There appear 146 young knees, for the most part with the hands in the head, watched by the forces of law and order that they had been arrested shortly before for having participated supposedly in altercations.
Blanquer asked to "be careful" to interpret those images, he stressed that "we are in a climate of exceptional violence" and said that it all began with a few young people outside the school, "professionals of violence", who managed to drag some of the students and burned bins, stole gas cylinders and attacked the police who "tried to neutralise them".
"things Happened very serious", said before adding that most of those arrested have been released quickly, while some will be brought before the judge, and that is going to carry out an administrative investigation.Numerous incidents
According to the minister, in the whole of France, there was this Thursday some 300 educational centres disturbed by the protests of the students, of which 80 were blocked. There were numerous incidents, which ended with more than 700 arrests.
This movement of students has emerged in the heat of the protest of the "yellow vests" living in France for weeks, and that degenerated into violence last Saturday in Paris and in different parts of the country.
The French president, Emmanuel Macron, who has not spoken publicly since his arrival from the G20 summit in Buenos Aires last Sunday, despite the gravity of the crisis, it will do so "at the beginning of the next week", advanced today the president of the National Assembly, Richard Ferrand.
The reason we don't talk prior to the convening of the "yellow vests" for a new demonstration on Saturday in Paris that is feared to degenerate into violence is because they don't want to "stoke the fire", according to Ferrand.
given the fears of that as last week's repeat of the Saturday scenes of urban guerrilla warfare, the prime minister, Édouard Philippe, announced last night that he is preparing "a mobilization exceptional" with 89.000 agents of the forces of law and order throughout the country, of which 8,000 in Paris.
the figures Are higher than 65,000 police officers and gendarmes deployed in the past week.
