Outside the closed gates, the spirits are quickly heated and to be heard in Paris, officials on strike set fire to tyres of truck releasing quickly the plumes of black smoke.

Firefighters had to intervene to extinguish the burning tires. Mobile gendarmes were deployed to secure the intervention of soldiers from the fire taking away the strikers.

A striker who wanted to retrieve a flag of CGT Education smoky a few steps from fire and pursued by a mobile policeman was wrestled to the ground by the military.

This incident resulted in a short fight between police and strikers, as indicated in the journal of Mayotte.
They then launched spikes against the Government: "How is that the Socialist Government!" or "Afghanistan!".
For Frédéric Muller of SNES-FSU, "it was to be expected, it is a gesture of despair".
