  • Description

    STUDENTS AND POLICE CLASHED BRIEFLY IN THE LATIN QUARTER OF PARIS TODAY (MONDAY) AS THE STUDENTS MADE AN UNSUCCESSFUL BID FOR A TOTAL BOYCOTT OF EXAMINATIONS.

    THE ONLY TROUBLE WAS AT THE MEDICAL ACADEMY WHERE STUDENTS PRESSING FOR IMMEDIATE UNIVERSITY REFORMS, TRIED TO PREVENT CANDIDATES FROM ENTERING THE BUILDING TO SIT FOR THEIR EXAMS. BUT THE GREAT MAJORITY OF STUDENTS - AT THE LAW AND SCIENCE ACADEMIES AS WELL AS THE MEDICAL ACADEMY - IGNORED THE BOYCOTT AND COMPLETED THEIR PAPERS NORMALLY.

    AT THE MEDICAL ACADEMY, HAND TO HAND SCUFFLES BROKE OUT AS POLICE PUSHED PICKETS FROM THE MAIN BUILDING. LATER IN THE DAY POLICE MADE SEVERAL CHARGES TO CLEAR THE STREET. BUT THEY DID NOT DRAW THEIR BATONS AND THE DEMONSTRATORS FELL BACK PEACEFULLY, SINGING THE INTERNATIONALE AND CHANTING "DE GAULLE, FRANCE, SALAZAR, POLICE EXAMS."
