French police uses watercanon on peaceful protesters at close range in Nice

NICE, FRANCE – During a protest in front of the National Assembly in Nice, police forces used a watercanon on peaceful protesters at close range.

All over France protests erupted over a proposed “global security law” that criminalizes taking photographs of the police, according to footage and witnesses on social media late Tuesday.

The proposed legislation is backed by the ruling La République En Marche party of President Emmanuel Macron and the party’s ally Agir.

The proposed law would make it illegal to “disseminate, by whatever means and on whatever medium, with the aim of damaging physical or psychological integrity, the image of the face or any other element of identification of an official of the national police or a member of the national gendarmerie when they are acting in the context of a police operation.”
