  • Description

    PARIS POLICE HAVE EVACUATED THE SCHOOL OF FINE ARTS IN A SURPRISE RAID. THE SCHOOL WAS OCCUPIED BY STUDENTS AND NON-STUDENTS SINCE THE TAKE-OVER OF THE SORBONNE UNIVERSITY, IN MID-MAY.

    ALMOST ALL THE LITERATURE USED BY THE PARISIAN STUDENTS DURING THEIR REBELLION WAS PRINTED AT THE SCHOOL. WHEN THE POLICE MOVED IN TODAY (JUNE 22) THERE WAS ONLY SLIGHT RESISTANCE.

    ONE MAN WAS ARRESTED AFTER THROWING A TEAR GAS GRENADE TO COVER HIS ESCAPE. THE POLICE SEALED OFF THE BUILDING BEFORE MOVING IN AND TOOK OVER THE ROOMS AND WORKSHOPS ONE BY ONE. ABOUT 70 PEOPLE WERE REMOVED FROM THE BUILDING.
