This is a manuscript from a friend that he was in Lyon and Paris during the days of the last social uprising in France, the strikes, the squats in the universities and the insurrection of the outcasts in the suburbs of Paris and other cities. We express here all our solidarity to the French social resistance and to all the people in France that they fight for their lives. As many of us are students or we was students in Greek universities and participated in the fights for free education in Greece we feel anger when the French police attack inside the universities and through away the students that fight for freedom...We fight in Greece for social asylum in the universities and for the prohibition of the police to enter in the universities...As when we was in England, as also in Germany for tour, as also now in France we understand that as long the police can come in the university and can stop any kind of social action it can not exist any freedom of speech or freedom of assembly and we face a covered dictatorship in all over Europe. We will never surrender to fight for freedom...

In the previous week they have begun general strikes in all France.
Buses, underground metro and trains do not work.
The universities begun occupations, reacting against the new law of the privatization of education.
In Lyon a university outside from the center of city is under occupation from last Monday. Yesterday the students decided that they will close also the university in the center of city
In 4 o clock in the afternoon they closed the university at the city center and in 10 o clock in the evening arrived 25 riot police vans, from where in they came out tens of policemen officers full armed.
In the university there was 100-200 students.
Not all of them students that can cause "troubles"
They came at least two police officers for each university student…
Methodically, the police entered in the university and they removed all the students outside, without however to arrest anyone.
The students shouted slogans when the policemen came in, and they were turned away by all the region of the university without cause any "troubles"
They began a small demonstration to the center of city, through the squares and the shops shouting slogans like "Sarkozy you fascist, the people will kill you"
Some people came out from the windows of their houses and they encouraged the students to continue.
Inside the demonstration were also secret policemen and they was keeping notes for each one that was participating.
No one tried to through them away from the parade.
In a demonstration last year, when somebody pushed a police officer in order to send him away from the demonstration he was arrested immediately, they accused him also for some other things that he had made in the past, and they through him in the prison. The sentence of imprisonment in France is not payable
Daily very few trains are working.
For that reason, today, certain strikers, made sambotaz.
In 18 points of the country, in the ways of trains and metro, saboteurs interrupted the circulation.
Sarkozy says that the mobilizations of the people was expected after the new lows, and that this reactions represent only a minority of population.
He says also that he is certain, that he will continue being chairman for a lot of years more…
