#France - The right to protest? French government makes U-turn after outcry over ban: FRANCE 24 English (part 1 & 2)

Published on 23 Jun 2016

The state of emergency in France, in place since November's terror attacks, and the hosting of the Euro 2016 have put extra strain on the security services. Should this burden be increased by the protests against social change? The French government had planned to ban a large-scale trade union demonstration on Thursday, but after threats by the unions to carry on regardless, a compromise has been reached. Should the right to protest be upheld during this state of emergency?
