Rough translation from Liberation:

At this moment, 11 campuses are blocked and 26 other universities "disturbed to varying degrees", according to the figures provided yesterday by the Ministry for National Education. UNEF, the national students union disagrees: it says that 45 of the 84 French universities are currently on strike.
