Thousands protest across France over new Covid rules

Protests are still going strong in French cities after weeks of demonstrations following mandatory COVID health passes. France is in a dangerous state where social turmoil could worsen into late summer.

On Saturday, tens of thousands of people took to the street in several French cities for the fourth weekend in a row (for prior protests, read: here & here) against a coronavirus passport and other virus restrictions that continue to whittle down freedoms.

The new health passes, championed by President Emmanuel Macron, are mandatory for entry into restaurants, bars, and other public spaces. This comes as the new delta variant is spreading throughout Europe.

According to AFP News, protests are expected in 150 cities today, with some 200,000 in attendance.

The scenes in downtown Paris show thousands marching against the loss of liberties due to health passports.
