Thousands of people have flooded the streets of French cities, protesting against the implementation of a mandatory Covid-19 health pass for the general public, as well as compulsory vaccination for certain categories of people.
Mass protests kicked off in several French cities on Saturday, with thousands condemning government plans to toughen anti-coronavirus restrictions.
A huge march was held in Paris, where participants were accompanied by a massive police presence, live footage from RT’s video agency Ruptly shows.
The protest has taken place without any major incident so far, with police and marchers only engaging in minor pushing along the route. At one point, law enforcement could be seen pepper-spraying protesters who tried to push against the police line.
Large protests have also been staged in other cities across the country. A massive column of protesters marched through the streets of the southwestern coastal city of La Rochelle to condemn the plans for a health pass.
Some 200,000 protesters were expected to hit the streets of French cities, according to local media reports, citing police sources. So far, French law enforcement has not released any official estimates on the scale of the ongoing protests.
The latest round of protests, which have rocked the country for the past few weeks, comes after France’s top court deemed most of the controversial legislation package to be constitutional. The legislation, approved by the court on Thursday, is expected to come into force on Monday.
The court shot down several provisions, but greenlit the most controversial ones, including the implementation of mandatory health passes for the general public, which will be required to visit most public venues. The legislation also implements mandatory coronavirus vaccination for frontline healthcare workers and some other categories of French citizens.Mass protests against lockdowns and vaccine mandates are taking place across Europe with hardly a mention from from the Mainstream Media which, while demanding unprecedented censorship, repreatedly parrots globalist propaganda about the suvvess of the mass vaccination campaigns as if they really believe their customers are stupid enough to accept that with the claimed high take up of the vaccines government's care so much about the 10% of vaccine refusers it is still spending billions of dollars to persuade us to get our armful of free toxic shite. Washington Post's article today "NYC to require proof of vaccination for indoor activities," disabled from public comment! Because WAPO and MSM understand that most people, Republican and Democrat, unvaccinated and vaccinated, are vehemently opposed to such mandates! Deciding against taking vaccines under Emergency Use Authorization, using new mRNA technology never heretofore approved by the FDA, from companies who have paid billions of dollars in fines for defective products and unscrupulous practices is reasonable, not the reckless, selfish, unpatriotic act it is being portrayed as. And the claims made that 98% of the population in developed nations have been vaccinated are laughable. According to unofficial sources the figure is around 50% and sticking in spite of fearmongering, bribes, coercion and fascistic policies that threaten to create of the unvaccinated a margicalised lass of untermenschen (yes its a Nazi word, the pandemic responses of the "liberal democracies have too many parralels with Naziism for comparisons to be easily dismissed. The "Left" whose journey across the spectrum has taken them to a level of authoritarianism Genghis Khan would have envied, have become vicious shills for Big Pharma. The "Left" have found a Religion devoid of empathy and tolerance, and are fully committed to worship of an insufferable and infantilizing "Big Mother" technocracy betrothed to "Great Father Of All Things Science." In France it has gone to the extreme with the "Health" Pass. Last week on the 21st ALL restaurants, bars, coffee shops, and any leisure activities like sporting events, theaters, cinemas, museums, were closed to anyone without "the pass" and all staff at these places are mandated to get the jab to keep their job. It is now a 6 Month prison sentence if you are caught inside any of these places without the pass (the man who slapped the president in the face got only 3 months prison time). Business owners will get a fine of 45,000 euros and 1 year prison sentance if they do not comply with the use of "the pass" and force all their employees to get the jab. (If you know France, you can commit murder and have less of a sentence) So the result? All the low paid employees quit, they can make more on welfare here. (for now) We can still technically "get take out food" but I just tried last night and every restaurant in our town (that is dine in with take out) has closed their doors due to the lack of staff. As of last week ALL doctors, nurses and health industry workers have been mandated to get the jab or lose their license, practice, job, business etc. (ALL health care here is Govt paid positions and there are no private health care Doctors or Hospitals etc.) Since the Health care system is state run and funded, it has been run into the ground. All the good doctors left France 5 Years ago, all the hospitals look like they are 3rd world hospitals since there is no money to repair them, half of the equipment doesnt work and not every hospital is stocked with supplies needed for daily needs (masks, gels, disposable gowns etc). For 5 years Nurses have been understaffed and doing double the work because the Health care system is nearly bankrupt.... So add to this the mandatory jab. So the result? Well they took to the streets by the millions and now all the hospitals just lost another 50% of staff capacity. My doctor just went into early retirement (a.k.a. he quit) and I have yet to find a replacement. As of Aug 1st ALL large malls, retail stores and grocery store owners and their staff need to be jabbed and the health pass is required to enter for employees and customers. This would be the equivalent to closing ALL Targets, Walmarts, Costcos, Home Depots, and all major grocery stores. (basically any building over 20,000 squre meters) to those without "the pass". Result.?? Aug 15th Truckers will be going on strike nation wide; Blocking all access roads in and out of Paris. Yesterday an entire airport in Northern France closed due to the majority of staff quitting. As of Sept 15th All public areas and access will be off limits. No farmers markets, no parks, no national parks, lakes, rivers, beaches, recreation areas, campsites etc. and no gathering over 100 people, no churches, no weddings, etc. As of Oct 1st ALL small vendors such as, delis, pizza trucks, sandwich shops, butchers, bakers, vegatable stands etc. So as of Oct 1st I will only be able to purchase food by internet and pick up (if allowed). Food shortages, Truckers strike, hospitals and airports shutting down unemployment going through the roof. Its going to be a bumpy ride folks. Is it me or does all this seem a bit extreme for a "pass" that isn't exactly working? America England Australia New Zealand you’d better wake up, because this is where our governments, in thrall to corporate money, are planning to take us all.
