Rising Up Against Vaccine Passports – Hundreds of Thousands Take to the Streets

Multitudes of British people demonstrated in London to urge a restoration to liberty; this comes after Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced that vaccination passports will be needed for clubs, as well as other public facilities.

Thousands of protestors rallied in London’s Trafalgar Square on Saturday amidst global protests against COVID-19 lockdowns and vaccination IDs.

A young lady remarked that Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s vaccination passport idea for clubs and public spaces inspired her to attend the demonstration; she also stated that people can’t take us out of the community since we’re all people here.

One demonstrator told Breitbart London that he’s not an “anti-vaxxer,” saying how he had previously received one dosage of a coronavirus vaccination. The demonstrator concluded that he would refuse to provide his documents if the state demanded them because the state does not have the authority to do so.

The massive protest in Britain on Saturday was repeated around the globe, with large-scale demonstrations taking place in France and Australia.

France Saw the Largest Protests Yet

Approximately 160,000 people rallied throughout France on Saturday, including far-right protesters and supporters of the yellow vest campaign; they rallied against a measure forcing everyone to get specialized virus permits to enter eateries and requiring COVID-19 immunizations for all healthcare personnel.

Demonstrations of a similar nature were conducted in neighboring Italy. In Paris, police used water cannons and tear gas to disperse boisterous protestors, despite the fact that the majority of the demonstrations were peaceful.

Just after the national assembly adopted the virus legislation on Friday, senators in France’s Parliament were discussing it on Saturday, as infection numbers and hospital admissions continue to rise. To safeguard vulnerable individuals and establishments such as hospitals, the French government wishes to speed up vaccines and avoid a fresh shutdown.

The bulk of French individuals are completely immunized and polls show that the vast majority of French citizens approve of the new regulations. However, this is not the case for everyone.

The Anti-Immigration Movement Got Involved

Protesters chanted “Liberty! Liberty!” as they paraded across east Paris in several protests held across France on Saturday. Many also attended a rally planned by a former senior leader in Marine Le Pen’s right-wing anti-immigration party held across the Seine River from the Eiffel Tower.

On the fringes of the Bastille march, tensions flared, despite the fact that the majority of protestors were peaceful. After a protester threw a chair at a policeman, police in riot gear used tear gas to disperse the crowd.

Other missiles were thrown as well. Afterward, some protestors marched to the Arc de Triomphe, where they were dispersed by police using water cannons. Conservative Polititions, protesters, and many others frustrated with President Emmanuel Macron, were among the protesters.

These groups are frustrated by the introduction of a French “health permit,” which is now needed to visit museums, movie theaters, and tourist attractions. The plan currently being debated would extend the demand for a pass to all bars and restaurants in France, as well as several other establishments.
