France: Tens of thousands protest against drones, bill restricting filming police
Demonstrators also protested against the restrictions imposed to halt the spread of coronavirus and to stand up for the cultural sector, which has been especially hard-hit by the measures.
The demonstrators are protesting against draft legislation that would ban the filming of police activities, which the ruling La République En Marche party of Emmanuel Macron, France’s president, has said it would rewrite.
But people are also protesting against the use of surveillance tools such as drones and pedestrian cameras.
According to interior ministry figures, 32,077 people turned out to protest across France. ■
