This is just one example of the recent politicisation of French high school students.

300 students from the tiny medieval town of Hennebont, population just 13,000, were said to have been blocking the bridge from 3.30pm French time

Meanwhile in Rennes, Ouest France is reporting that "the University of Rennes 2 and the blocked campus of Beaulieu joined together in General Assembly Monday midday, between 3,000 - 4,000 students voted, by a show of hands, in favour of the continuation of the blockade. There will be thus no course until next Monday. On the campus of Beaulieu (Rennes 1), the strike was voted again until Wednesday."
