Student Protesters Climb Over School Railings in Central France

Demonstrators clmbed over the railings of Blaise-Pascal High School in Clermont-Ferrand, central France, on December 6, as hundreds of students and some “yellow vest” protesters took part in marches through the city.

Cars were overturned, surveillance cameras were ripped from their mountings, and garbage fires were reported in the city. At least four people were arrested during the disturbances, France 3 said.

The student demonstrations, against reforms to the baccalaureat, France’s version of the high school diploma, have come in the wake of a broader protest movement sparked by a proposed fuel tax hike. Credit: Jean Hugon via Storyful
