Marine Le Pen denounces France's new online hate speech law, English subtitles
notes with timestamps:
0:01 in case it is unclear, Le Pen was ostensibly speaking in favour of a proposed amendment (not sure what the amendment actually was), during a debate on France's new "Law to fight against hateful content on the internet".
This law is widely referred to as the "Avia Law" after Laetitia Avia, a member of Macron's party LREM. Avia lead the committee which drafted the law.
The law was passed on Wednesday 13th May, also the date of this debate.
It is inspired by Germany's NetzDG law, and gives online platforms and search engines one hour to remove terrorist and child pornography material, and 24 hours to remove discriminatory (based on race, gender, religion, disability) material. Failure to remove the content will result in fines.
This article (in English) gives a good summary of the law https://www.forbes.com/sites/simonchandler/2020/05/14/french-social-media-law-is-another-coronavirus-blow-to-freedom-of-speech/
0:08 Avia = Laetitia Avia, a member of Macron's party LREM. Avia lead the committee which drafted the law.
0:39 ECHR = European Court of Human Rights. The ECHR's judgement in the 1976 case of Handyside vs the United Kingdom contained the following sentence "Freedom of expression...is applicable not only to 'information' or 'ideas' that are favourably received or regarded as inoffensive or as a matter of indifference, but also to those that offend, shock or disturb the State or any sector of the population".
0:58 this is Nicole Belloubet (independent), France's Minister of Justice.
1:15 as someone who argued cases = Le Pen was a trial lawyer before becoming a politician.
1:39 Google, Apple, Facebook and Amazon = Le Pen uses the acronym GAFA.
1:46 how we will be able to speak about it = Le Pen literally says "how we will have the right to speak about it". I changed this a little bit to make it more coherent.
2:15 while the president of the assembly is speaking over her, Le Pen is saying "you have never succeeded in telling us what a 'hateful content' is". I couldn't fit this into the subtitles.
