Kenza Drider, a French Muslim mother of four, traveled from her home in Avignon to Paris to protest the ban on full-face veils that went into effect today in France. "I'm not here to provoke, but to defend my civil liberties as a French citizen," Drider told the press outside the Notre Dame Cathedral, before being detained by police for participating in an unauthorized demonstration.
