Photo essay by Fatah Sadaoui for the Collective against Profiling (Collectif contre le contrôle au Faciès), a French not for profit that aims to raise awareness about the ethnic profiling of minority youth in France. The group argues that young people of Middle Eastern and African appearance are routinely harassed by French police. Some of these youths have been stopped by the police up to six times per day and others up to 70 times in one year.
