The document is composed of seven pages which describe a union that has been losing momentum over the past ten years. L’Unf “has moved away from challenging government reforms to embrace societal issues […] such as the fight against discrimination “, it is written in this note.
A union “cut off from its base”
This struggle, according to the authors of the note dated last Monday, brought together the union “of Muslim students in France”, a movement considered radical. The latter would have led the UNEF to support the wearing of the veil in the public sphere, to try in 2019 to prevent a performance of the play The Suppliants, Aeschylus, considered racist, or to consider the emotion aroused by the fire of Notre Dame de Paris as a “delirium of little white”.
The union is described as “cut off from its base”, and would continue to fail in major French universities. The Unef, whose right wing is now demanding its dissolution, also receives a subsidy of 600,000 euros per year each year. For the moment, the Elysee Palace and the Ministry of the Interior are not considering the dissolution of the union but put the question of its financing on the table.
