Police scuffled with dozens of student protesters who were piling up garbage containers to organise a blockade outside the Lycee Racine in Paris, on Tuesday.

Students were seen moving and lining up containers, when the police arrived and attempted to disperse the protesters.

They were marching in support of their teachers and demanding more government aid amid the pandemic, while also decrying the stress of being cut off from campuses since October.

Teacher unions called for a national strike on Tuesday to call for better working conditions and protest over the government's education budget.
