Police officers gathered outside France's National Assembly make for สล็อต168 a powerful image: the proximity of security and politics, made real on the banks of the Seine.
Often criticised for overly aggressive tactics during protests, French police come here on Wednesday as protesters themselves, calling for a tougher response to the aggression security forces face.
Within the past month, a policeman was killed during an anti-drugs operation, and a policewoman was stabbed to death in a targeted attack. "It was the straw that broke the camel's back," said Stanislas Gaudon, head of the Alliance police union. "It was something we were afraid of, almost expecting."
'It's a daily thing being attacked'
Many officers say they have little faith in the justice system to put criminals behind bars, and end up arresting the same faces time after time. That's even harder to stomach, they say, when the victim is a colleague.
A key demand for protesters is the introduction of a minimum sentence for anyone who attacks the police.
In fact, there are far fewer police deaths now than there were in the 1980s. But what is new, says Loïc Walder, spokesman for the Unsa police union, is a more general low-level aggression.
"Today, it's not [just] about being killed, it's more that it's a daily thing to be attacked," he told me. "Every night there are police handling some riot situation. That was not happening a few years ago. Now, if you go on patrol as a police officer, you know you're going to be attacked."
Gaudon says that 18 police officers are injured every day during neighbourhood patrols, ID checks or traffic controls. The number is rising, he says, and the offenders are getting younger.
