Paris police clash with protesters over COVID 'health pass' | DW News



In Paris, protesters and police clashed during a march against France’s so-called health pass. The pass requires proof of vaccination against COVID-19 or a negative test to enter many public venues. And lawmakers are now debating making it even stricter, in the hope that it will persuade more people to get the jab. But the demonstrators say the measures breach their civil liberties.
The City of Light dissolved into a battleground, shrouded in clouds of tear gas, as police and protestors clashed over proposed COVID-19 restrictions.
Rallies were held across Paris on Saturday against a bill being debated by lawmakers which passed its first reading the day before. The new measures would require everyone in France to have a special virus pass to go to restaurants and other venues. It would also make vaccinations compulsory for health care workers.
COVID-19 infections are spiking once more across France and hospital admissions are also on the increase. The government has responded by speeding up its vaccination campaign to protect the most vulnerable and also avoid fresh lockdowns.
Despite the threat of water cannon, protestors refuse to back down against the proposal for a nationwide coronavirus pass.

  1. Staph Infection is easily treated with antibiotics. The various Governments are trying to vaccinate against Herpes and other infectious diseases that might leave you sterile! Notice the side effects of the vaccine are not mentioned? 2,500 initial test subjects apparently wasn't enough!

  2. NOBODY! has the right to impose a vacine on people's personal bodies! NEVER EXCEPT THIS! If you do you will only see more and more of your freedoms STOLEN away from you. They are TESTING us pesants.

  3. Presidents pushing for vaccine passports have to be prosecute for TREASON!
    They betrayed the citizens, they betrayed the constitutions, they have betray the NATIONS!!
    TREASON HAS A PRICE.
    We cannot let them get away as others will try again in the next 5 or 10 years.

  4. I'm gonna use the QR code of one of my relatives who has been vaccinated. We should all do it. You just make copies of QR code certificate of someone we know and it's done. It's gonna become a business with people selling their QR code certificates

  5. Never exchange "freedom" for security. And even this "security" is innefective as proved with Israel, the cases among fully vaccinated keep rising and hospitalisations too. Once again, tax money goes to the pocket of government friends 🙂

  6. The vast majority of people in countries most affected by COVID-19 are now immune having been exposed to the virus and recovered. This immunity is likely lifelong as was proved by research into survivors of SARS-CoV-1 in 2003 who were shown to still be immune 17 years later AND to the new strain SARS-CoV-2.
