    Background: THE MAIN UNIVERSITY TEACHERS' UNION OF FRANCE TODAY (WEDNESDAY) ACCUSED THE GOVERNMENT OF DELIBERATELY PROVOKING STUDENTS BY POSTING POLICEMAN AROUND CERTAIN WELL-CHOSEN FACULTIES. THE UNION SAID IN A STATEMENT THAT THE DEPLOYMENT OF POLICE AROUND FACULTIES AT NANTERRE AND THE SORBONNE, IN PARIS, WAS AN ATTEMPT BY THE GOVERNMENT TO MASK FAILURE IN APPLYING ITS UNIVERSITY POLICY.

    POLICE TODAY CONTINUED TO CHECK STUDENT CARDS IN PARIS IN AN ATTEMPT TO KEEP OUTSIDE POLITICAL AGITATORS AWAY FROM THE UNIVERSITY FACULTIES. THE TEACHERS UNION CLAIMED THAT "BY GROTESQUE DEPLOYMENT OF ENORMOUS FORCES IN BATTLEDRESS, THE GOVERNMENT IS DELIBERATELY PROVOKING THE STUDENTS, HOPING TO THROW ON TO THEM IN THE EYES OF THE PUBLIC, THE RESPONSIBILITY FOR THE SITUATION IT CREATED".
