France’s Security Law: Amend or Abandon?

Following nationwide protests, the French government has backtracked on a controversial security law. Article 24 would make it a criminal offence to film, post online and share images of police officers on duty if the state believed it could cause them harm. Emmanuel Macron’s party will now do a ‘total rewrite’ of the bill. But with incidences of police brutality going viral, will redrafted legislation still threaten free speech and limit police accountability?
