Bourre Ton Passe Dans Le Cul Monsieur Macron - Protests Against Vaccine Pass Erupt Across France

 (Title translation: Stuff You Pass Up Your Arse, Mr. Macron)

Tens of thousands of people again took to the streets in cities and towns across France over the weekend to protest against the government’s COVID-19 vaccine passport law that prohibits unvaccinated people from going into restaurants and bars, as well as using public transport and making long journeys. France has been quickest of the mark of all EU member states in introducing mandatory vaccine passports and it has stirred an already angry population to the brink of rebellion.

France’s Interior Ministry told Reuters that an estimated 215,000 people joined protests on Saturday and Sunday, which is down slightly from the estimated 237,000 people who demonstrated the previous week.

Protesters chanted “freedom,” “pass equals apartheid,” and “stuff your pass,” in reference to the legal requirement to show a vaccine passport on entering public spaces. Some French citizens told TV and radio reporters fronting 'vox pop' slots that they joined the demonstrations because the COVID-19 passports limit their freedoms and are a way to segregate society for political purposes, rather than health reasons. People, whether French, American, British, Italian or from any of the developed nations are not stupid (that is the condition of politicians and scientists,) so the public know that although mask and social distancing mandates have failed and the vaccines don't work, so what is the point of the passports other than to exert authoritarian control over individuals lives.

Crowds were seen marching in Paris, Nice, Marseille, and other French cities.

In July the French national assembly approved the COVID-19 health pass law, requiring citizens to show the pass to enter public areas, proving they’ve been vaccinated or recently tested negative for the virus. The country’s top court upheld the unconstitutional law earlier this month, as well as a law mandating COVID-19 vaccinations for all health workers.

And while some media outlets claimed the protests were part of the “anti-vax” movement, many French demonstrators have said they support the vaccines but not the restrictions.

“I am for the vaccine and had it months ago, but not the health pass, which is discriminatory,” one protester said on Aug. 14, the Guardian reported.

Around 1,600 police officers were deployed in Paris to control three separate marches. Authorities didn’t provide information on whether there were any arrests but it would be unusual if such massive protests in France went of without any trouble.

As of Aug. 13, 46.1 million people in France, approximately two thits of the population, had received at least one vaccine dose and more than 38.8 million, or 57.5 percent, had received two doses.
