NATIONAL OFFICE OF THE UNEF
TO THE TRADE UNIONS
Since Friday, May 3 the police have occupied the Sorbonne (after locking-out Nanterre), something that hadn’t been seen since the odious regime of Petain.
Since Friday, May 3, when the police savagely beat them, students have called on their union, UNEF, to defend their right to political and collective expression.
Currently the government and the press are trying to isolate the student movement, which is why in the face of this offensive, which affects the entire labor movement, we appeal to you to publicly affirm solidarity with our actions, and ask you to consider an inter-union demonstration with us in defence of the right of political and collective expression and against police repression.
