Several incidents broke out Thursday and Friday morning in front of several institutions in Nantes, including high schools Monge-Chauviniere, Bourdonnieres, Sacre Coeur and Camus in Nantes. Two vehicles were burned in front of Lycee Monge and three in front of Sacre-Coeur high school. Other degradations were made near the establishments. Classes have been suspended in these schools.
Claude d'Harcourt, prefect of the Loire-Atlantique, condemns with the greatest firmness this violence and the degradation committed. He addresses
all [his] support to the high school staff targeted by these abuses as well as to the students and their families. These irresponsible and inadmissible acts constitute offenses punishable by law. The police, who themselves were targeted, immediately intervened to put an end to this violence and to seek and challenge their perpetrators.
The prefect asked the departmental director of public security
put in place immediately and over the next few days appropriate monitoring systems to prevent the renewal of such acts of violence and to ensure safety around the institutions concerned.
The state will not tolerate and will not allow a climate of violence in schools. We must continue to act collectively with the Justice, the rectorate, the city of Nantes and the Regional Council of the Pays de la Loire so that students and teachers can find normal working conditions and so that they can practice in peace. the right to education.
