Tens of Thousands in Paris Protest the Health Pass

Tens of Thousands of people have taken to the streets in Paris to protest the introduction of the Health Pass. The Health Pass is being introduced in the country’s fight against the fourth wave of COVID-19. Only the vaccinated will be able to receive the Health Pass, and without one people will be banned from certain public spaces.

“We’re creating a segregated society and I think it is unbelievable to be doing this in the country of human rights,” said Anne, a teacher who was demonstrating in Paris. She declined to give her last name.

“So I took to the streets; I have never protested before in my life. I think our freedom is in danger.”

Already you cannot go to museums, cinemas or swimming pools without a Health Pass. In a vote this week it is expected vaccination will become mandatory for all health care workers; and the Health Pass extended to include bars, restaurants, trade shows, trains and hospitals.
