High school students in Gabon have been attacked by police with tear gas as they marched again in support of their teachers. Several young people were arrested as they marched peacefully in towns throughout the country, including the capital Libreville, demanding that the government concede to their teachers' demands for a living wage and for more classrooms. The students are also demanding the repeal of education reforms which would make it more difficult for them to obtain their baccalaureate exam. Such changes are impossible in the current state of Gabonese education.
