France FAGE - Ominous time for French students!

ESU - European Students' UnionA decisive period for French students and overall for French people, is reaching an end. Lots of important national meetings took place. Last week, the election of regional representatives was organized. This vote was really strained because the French radical right party registered high scores, sometimes even collecting the maximum of votes in the first round of elections. Thanks to an important citizen mobilisation for the second round, this party did not obtain any region's presidency.
