  • Global News published this video item, entitled “Tear gas, fires as thousands protest in Paris against police violence, security bill” – below is their description.

    Security forces fired tear gas at a protest march against police violence in Paris on Saturday after masked protesters launched flares at their lines, put up barricades and threw stones. Thousands of people across France marched in protest of a proposed French security law that would restrict sharing images of police. Civil liberties groups and journalists are concerned that the measure will stifle press freedoms and allow police brutality to go undiscovered and unpunished. The cause has gained renewed importance in recent days after footage emerged of French police officers beating up a Black man, triggering a nationwide outcry. French President Emmanuel Macron spoke out against the video images on Friday, saying “they shame us.” For more info, please go to https://globalnews.ca/news/7490137/france-security-bill-protests/ Subscribe to Global News Channel HERE: http://bit.ly/20fcXDc Like Global News on Facebook HERE: http://bit.ly/255GMJQ Follow Global News on Twitter HERE: http://bit.ly/1Toz8mt Follow Global News on Instagram HERE: https://bit.ly/2QZaZIB #GlobalNews
