French Riot at Plans to Mandate Vaccine Passports: UK Government Fails to Take Note


French people are rioting in response to plans by President Macron to mandate vaccine passports to enter venues like shopping malls, restaurants, bars, cafés and public transport.


Incredibly, French citizens will have to provide proof of vaccination or a negative COVID test to enter any of these sites from August onwards. They move is said to be to make the vaccine de facto mandatory for anyone who wants to live a normal life.


But the French people responded with a series of riots with the biggest in Paris seeing the police using tear gas to disperse the demonstrators.

“The police stepped in shortly after scores of protesters marched down a boulevard in central Paris on Wednesday without permission from the Paris authorities,” reports Reuters. “Some wore badges saying “No to the health pass”. Police vans and riot police also blocked off roads in an attempt to prevent the procession of the protest.

There were also riots and protests after the French government previously tried to make taking the vaccination a condition of using public transport, leading to the proposed bill being shelved. It remains to be seen whether the unrest will force Macron into another U-turn. France was beset with many months of Yellow Vest protests that began in late 2018 and only ended in March 2020 due to the first COVID-19 lockdown. The Gilets Jaunes is a populist movement that unifies concerns shared by both the left and right, meaning it could rise again as a rebellion against COVID passes if the French government persists in mandating such draconian measures.

The British Governments are about to implement mandatory vaccine passports and are watching their implementation in other countries before finalising how their scheme will operate. The current plan is to force businesses to 'carry the can' for their implementation, which, they hope, will avoid them taking the blame though it is very much their law by de facto. They believe this obfuscation will mean that they will avoid scenes like this in Britain. But are the British people so stupid as to not see what's going on? And if they are, will they take to the streets and riot like the French have done?
