  • Description

    THE STUDENT GRIP ON THE SORBONNE HAS BEEN LOST, AND THE FRENCH TRICOLOUR NOW FLIES WHERE THE REBEL BLACK AND RED FLAG HAS HELD FOR THE PAST FIVE WEEKS. THERE WAS A FINAL OUTBREAK OF VIOLENCE AS THE STUDENTS COMPLETED EVACUATING THE UNIVERSITY LAST NIGHT (SUNDAY).

    THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE MASSED OUTSIDE THE UNIVERSITY TO PROTEST AGAINST POLICE ACTION IN CORDONING OFF THE UNIVERSITY BUILDING. THE VIOLENCE BROKE OUT SUDDENLY AND UNEXPECTEDLY AS THE GROWING CROWD OF STUDENTS, SPRINKLED WITH LARGE NUMBERS OF CURIOUS ONLOOKERS, PRESSED ON THE POLICE CORDONS.

    THE POLICE MOVED IN AGAINST THE CROWD, SHOOTING TEAR GAS GRENADES AND FIRECRACKERS, AND BEATING ANYONE THEY CAUGHT. THE CROWD FLED, AND WITHIN MINUTES THE BOULEVARD ST. MICHEL WAS EMPTY. BUT BEFORE THE CROWD HAD DISPERSED AMBULANCES HAS ARRIVED TO TAKE A??? SEVERAL INJURED MALE AND FEMALE STUDENTS, AND FIRE ENGINES HAD BEEN CALLED.

    TODAY MINISTRY OF EDUCATION ANNOUNCED THAT TALKS WOULD BEGIN TO RESTORE THE SORBONNE TO ITS "PROPER FUNCTION" AS SOON AS POSSIBLE.
