France’s Global Security Legislation

France’s Global Security Law is inviting a lot of criticism and protests. The proposed legislation gives wide powers to police while restricting the video recording of police officers. The legislation’s articles 21, 22 ad 24 are the main points of contention. The articles enable the police and paramilitary forces to film citizens using body cams and drone and livestream the footage to command post. It also provides for penalizing publishing the face or other identifiers of police with the intent to ‘harm their physical or mental integrity’.
