‘Screw with liberty at your peril!’ Macron humiliated into dropping security bill after protest mayhem goes viral

Video of French police teargassing and brawling with protesters over a controversial plan to outlaw filming of officers on duty goes viral to a global audience and sees President Macron humiliated into ditching the proposed law.

If ever President Macron needed a reason to back down over his proposed global security law making it an offence to film policemen on duty, the weekend’s mayhem on the streets of France where protesters were teargassed as they fought back against heavily armoured riot police was enough to change his mind.
