This weekend, thousands of people in Paris protested proposals that would lengthen France's state of emergency and revoke French citizenship from convicted terrorists of dual-nationality.
France 24 reports 70 percent of French citizens actually support the extended state of emergency, which began after November's Paris attacks. But some, including the United Nations, have argued the measures are excessive.
