Article 24 of the bill, which has come under especial criticism as it makes it illegal to distribute videos and photos identifying law enforcement officers and thereby violate their "physical or mental integrity," was approved by the parliament, against the backdrop of demonstrations over the past week.

Four French police officers have been suspended from duty after a viral video documented the violent arrest of a black music producer in Paris on Saturday. Demonstrations had been planned in France on Saturday for the withdrawal of the controversial law against filming police , Article 24 .

PARIS (Reuters) - The procession of demonstrators gathered on Saturday at Place de la Réublique in Paris against a controversial article of the proposed law "global security" s' is shaken to join the Place de la Bastille.

Presidents who threaten election violence lose votes

  Presidents who threaten election violence lose votes What can research on Africa tell us about the United States? My research on election violence in Africa can help us answer those questions. While violence doesn’t appear to have a sizable effect on overall turnout, it does affect whom citizens vote for. Specifically, when government forces physically attack the opposition, more voters say they plan to cast their ballots for opposition candidates — often at the expense of the ruling party. Voters appear to punish incumbents for violence.

Article 24 of the Global Security Act prescribes a penalty of €45,000 or up to one year in prison for those who “distribute a photograph of a person” by a police officer or gendarmerie on duty in order to “cause psychological or physical harm”. The protest has escalated into riots. The police used gas and

In Paris , the authorities had demanded that organisers limit the rally to a single location, but on Friday evening officials authorised a march. In another instance, journalists on the ground at a French migrant camp witnessed and recorded police brutality on Monday as the Paris area was cleared.

Article 24 prohibits filming members of the security forces with the intention of harming their "physical or mental" integrity. Journalists' unions and human rights movements believe it will restrict freedom of expression.

The mobilization against this article took on a new relief, in Paris as in the regions, after the violent evacuation of migrants on the same Place de la République, and after the violent arrest of a black music producer by the police.

The Paris police chief wrote for his part on Saturday to the police to call on them not to stray from the Republican line.

"Deviating from the republican line which serves as our guide is to deny what we are, it is to undermine the pact of confidence which unites us to our fellow citizens, it is to lose the sense of our mission", a- he said in a mail relayed via Twitter. "I expect (...) each of you to hold this line to the end."

'Such is life': In virus wards, death is a foe but a fact .
PARIS (AP) — During their daily morning round of the intensive care unit, hospital staffers and medical students pause outside room No. 10, abruptly emptied of the patient who lost his nearly month-long battle against COVID-19 the previous evening. The man died at 6:12 p.m., the medic leading the briefing tells the group. There is a short hush. And then they walk on. Even for ICU workers for whom death is a constant — and never more so than this year — witnessing the loss of a fellow human being to the virus can be a churn of emotions. For their own good and for their patients, they try to remain detached. They have coping mechanisms. Meditation or talking helps for some.
