teachers condemn the use of grenades


In Chad, unemployed academics demonstrated on Monday, May 24, before spreading rapidly. But the riot police fired tear gas into the courtyards of some high schools that are overwhelmed by the whirlwind. The teachers’ union condemns another systematic use of tear gas by the police in high school.

In the morning, unemployed academics marched in some districts of the capital. Then, according to witnesses, whistles sounded in the high school, in support of the protesters.

“It was fainting and traumatized students”

Mbayana Laoukoura, Member of Chad Teachers Association, was at Amtoukoui High School in the 7th arrondissement when police dispersed students: “They fired tear gas canisters. They fell all over the yard. It created panic and the students ran into disorder. It was fainting and traumatized students. “

In front of him a sink filled with tear gas canisters. “These are the pomegranates that were used,” he says, pointing to the pool. The union’s anger does not subside: “Students are insecure because tear gas can attack students’ physical integrity.”

On the authority’s side, Abderaman Koulamallah, a spokesman for the transitional government, calls for appeasement: The police simply acted to prevent a more serious turnaround. We do not mind these young people. They had been forced to come and talk before walking on gravel in the street. “

Teachers are urged by the union to cancel lessons at all facilities in N’Djamena for the time being.
