Thousands of school students took to the streets of Paris during a second day of protests against the deportation of foreign pupils.
Protesting students gathered at the Place de la Bastille to march to the Place de la Nation amid a big police presence.
Wheelie bins were used to block the entrance of the Lycee Charlemagne in central Paris, where a banner read: "Jotters not papers."
The protests began the day before, when students picketed several schools in Paris and thousands more took to the streets.
According to the local education authority, 14 Parisian schools were "disrupted" by Thursday's protests, although school student union UNL said that demonstrations had been held at more than 30 schools in the capital.
Meanwhile the father of victimised school student Leonarda Dibrani admitted that he had told the authorities his family was from Kosovo when only he was born there while his daughter Leonarda and other members of his family were born in Italy.
However, the anger among students was unabated.
They remained focused on the way Ms Dibrani had been removed from a school bus to face expulsion with her family earlier this month.
There was also anger over the removal of Khatchik Kachatryan, a 19-year-old student who was expelled to Armenia on Saturday after allegedly being arrested for shoplifting.
"We're here first of all because of Leonarda and Khatchik," said student Laure Anderson.
"But we're also here to express our disappointment in a leftist government that should be acting like a leftist government."
