This has led to some popular courses being oversubscribed and some 60 per cent of French university students do not finish their first year…

In the capital Paris, ambulance workers took to the streets and gathered close to the National Assembly in downtown Paris to complain about changes to working conditions.

In Marseille, an 80-year-old woman died in hospital after being injured when a tear gas canister went through her windows during Saturday’s protests.

    Not really “what’s the real story?” BUT view all sides of every media story, before making any judgment.
    Oh…and don’t believe anything they (msm) says.
