All young strikers gathered behind the streamer "NEITHER WARS, NOR BORDERS" and, they affirmed their revolt against the war, their pacifism, their antimilitarism, their refusal to support one or another belligerent and autonomy of their own movement.

In this evening's meeting, a inter-high-schools community formed to launch new actions for the next beginning of school, in ten days (the school holidays start tomorrow). It get in touch with students of three universities to widen the movement.

Many high-school girls and boys hesitated to take part in strike's day, because they're afraid of the more or less direct threats of the school administrations. But, they are expressed their solidarity (some escaped.). This initiative proves that doing a strike against the war is a realistic objective for the movement against the war
