Protests in France turn violent as new law was proposed criminalizing the publishing of images of police officers…

The protests in France were originally organized in response to footage of a black man who was beaten by officers. There was also a separate instance of footage showing a violent attempt by police officers evacuating migrants from a Paris plaza. The violence on the streets was further fueled by a proposed bill that would make it a crime to publish images of police officers in certain circumstances, which some believe could limit freedom of the press.

From AP News:

Video that surfaced Thursday showed the beating of music producer Michel Zecler, following footage of the brutal police evacuation Tuesday of migrants in a Paris plaza. The officers involved in the beating of Zecler were suspended pending an internal police investigation.


Article 24 of the proposed security law criminalizes the publishing of images of police officers with the intent of causing harm. Anyone found guilty could be sentenced to up to a year in jail, and fined 45,000 euros ($53,000).

French police were seen firing tear gas and other things as protesters used fireworks, lasers, stones, fires, barricades and more.

We can’t forget to mention that there were some Antifa goons that took advantage of the chaos and smashed up businesses and other property while clashing with police.
