The organizers of the protests warn that the security bill is an attack on the most fundamental freedoms.
France has protested against the bill on security promoted by the government of Emmanuel Macron into the night on Saturday. The organizers of the protests warn that the security bill approved last week by the National Assembly is an attack on freedom of expression and fundamental public freedoms.
"This bill aims to restrict the freedom of the press, the freedom to inform and be informed, the freedom of expression, in short, the fundamental public freedoms of our Republic," stated the coordinators who called the protests.
The coordinators of the demonstrations demand the elimination of articles 21, 22 and 24 of the bill and the "withdrawal of the new national scheme for maintaining order" published in September.
The security scheme forces journalists to disperse during the demonstrations when the forces of order repress the demonstrations, preventing them from covering the development of the events.
Just like in 2019, today the people of France are in the streets at war with the French state and nobody cares because Macron's dumpster fire government gets classified as a democracy, even as it imposes undemocratic security measures. pic.twitter.com/euieV4vy1N
