France: Protesters Storm Ministry of Education Following Student’s Self-Immolation

Protesters broke into the Ministry of Higher Education premises in Paris on Tuesday amid a march honouring the student who had set himself on fire due to his dire financial situation.

Footage shows protesters removing one of the shutters of the gate leading to the backyard of the Ministry of Higher Education and shouting slogans as they enter the Ministry premises.

The individual in question has not been officially identified but the student union who organised the rally said he posted a message on Facebook explaining that financial difficulties had become too much. In the message, he accused French politicians as well as the European Union for creating the situation.

The university authorities said they would set up a psychological support unit due to the incident, while the president claimed the institution was not aware of his “personal struggle”, despite being “very involved” with the student body.
