Toulouse: School at home: the “Nonsco’llectif” collective in front of the rectorate
The “Nonsco’llectif” met on Tuesday to question the rector, Mostafa Fourar, on their refused requests for Family Education. The demonstration “Instruction outside the walls #2” followed the first version of October 17th.
