France Erupts Into Further Chaos – MILLIONS Hit the Streets to Fight COVID-19 Vaccine Passports


Last week I reported on protests in France after Emmanuel Macron’s tyrannical decree to implement vaccine passports for most public spaces.

The protests have only increased in size and intensity since Bastille Day.

Today, massive demonstrations against tyranny took place across France and beyond.

Before the day began, there were nearly 200 scheduled protests around France.

And French citizens didn’t disappoint.

Enormous crowds showed up in the fight against tyranny and the Macron dictatorship.

Here’s some of the footage:

Even hospitals are joining the protests against vaccine passports.

RT had the story:

The staff of the hospital in Montelimar, in the French department of Drome, have gone on indefinite strike to protest the new rules demanding they take a vaccine against Covid-19 by mid-September or face losing their jobs.

The strike against “forced vaccination” was announced on Thursday by the CGT-GHPP trade union, and affects some 200 doctors and 1,500 nurses in the southeastern French city.

Hundreds of them gathered outside the hospital on Friday, denouncing lockdowns and vaccine mandates and chanting “liberté!” (freedom).

The French legislature is finalizing the proposal that would require all medical professionals in contact with the vulnerable to be fully vaccinated by September 15, or else lose their salaries and even their jobs.

“We are against mandatory vaccination and vaccine coercion,” Elsa Ruillere, local union representative, told Sputnik France. “There is no choice between tests or vaccination: vaccination is compulsory. No, we don’t agree. We want to have the choice like the rest of the world and we do not want compulsory vaccination.”

Ruillere says her union supports “free and informed consent” and is not against vaccination on principle but is against coercion. Some of the medical workers said they are waiting for the French-made Sanofi-GSK vaccine, promised for December.

“We are well aware of the evolution of the virus. We do not take it lightly,” Ruillere said. However, she and her striking colleagues point out that even with the rise in positive tests for the Delta variant of the coronavirus, there is no commensurate rise in hospitalizations.

“Yes, we turned ‘red’ but that’s in fact due to the positive tests. In terms of hospitalizations, we are fine at the moment, we did not need to reopen beds, we have far fewer hospitalized people than before and fewer people in intensive care,” she added.

Another union gripe is the lack of public debate, since France’s National Assembly seems to have simply proceeded on the advice of the High Health Authority (HAS), which called the vaccination mandate “justified.”

Euronews also reported:

Tens of thousands of people demonstrated in the streets of France on Saturday afternoon against the extension of the health pass and compulsory vaccination for certain professions.

It was the second weekend in a row to see thousands rally on the streets against the government’s decision to make it compulsory to have a health pass in order to access restaurants, bars and other cultural establishments.

The pass attests that the holder has either been fully vaccinated, has tested negative over the previous 24 hours or has recovered from COVID during the previous six months.

The new measure was announced last week by President Emmanuel Macron in a bid to boost vaccinations, as the country battles a surge in coronavirus cases.

Meanwhile in London, UK, hundreds of people rallied in the centre of the city, demonstrating against vaccine passport plans there.

Clashes between police and protesters

Several thousand people, divided into at least three rallies, began demonstrating in the early afternoon in Paris.

Mostly made up of ‘yellow vest’ protesters, a first procession set off shortly after 2pm from the Place de la Bastille, bound for the Porte de Champerret.

Police on motorbikes clashed against protesters along the way.

In the Trocadero square several thousand people, rarely masked, gathered at the call of Florian Philippot. “You are thousands,” said the President of the Patriots and former RN No. 2, between two “Marseillaise”.

It is a very good thing that we have a very good relationship with the people,” he said, “but we have to be very careful not to get caught up in a situation where we have to be very careful.

“Freedom, I am not your guinea pig”, summarised a slogan carried on a placard.
