PARIS, FRANCE - MARCH 16: Protestors demonstrate outside the French Senate against the Global Security Law which goes before the Senate today on March 16, 2021 in Paris, France. Opponents claimed the law authorises the use of cameras, video surveillance, and drones by the police, whilst also restricting the filming of the police during their operations, alarming journalists and activists saying civil liberties and press freedom could be compromised.
