Paris “on fire” … Breaking shops and burning cars!
Thousands of protesters took to the streets of Paris on Saturday to denounce police violence and French President Emmanuel Macron’s security policy plans that protesters say will undermine civil liberties.The French police fired tear gas in response to fireworks fired by the protesters. Young men covering their heads smashed the windows of some shops and smashed the facade of a bank, while others set fire to a number of cars.

Violent clashes took place between protesters and police in a similar protest last week.

Macron’s ruling party had recently said that it would rewrite part of a security bill that would limit the rights to publish photos of police officers, after it sparked a backlash between the public and the political left.The protesters marched around the French capital under the tight watch of riot police, waving banners saying “France, the land of police rights” and “Withdraw the security law.”

“We are moving towards an increasingly severe restriction of freedoms. There is no justification,” said Paris-based Karen Chabeau. Another protester, Javier Molona, ​​said: “France usually restricts freedoms while viewing their importance to others.”

The beating of music producer Michael Zekler, an African-American man, by several police officers in late November fueled public outrage, and the incident became known after video clips of it were circulated on the Internet.

Critics had said that the original bill would make it difficult to hold police accountable in a country where some human rights groups say there is systematic racism within government agencies, especially the security ones.

Many opponents of the bill say it will remain unfair even after it is rewritten.
