In a number of the largest cities in France, protests were held against the mandatory vaccination for medical workers and new anti-clotting measures, according to which it will not be possible to visit public places without a COVID-19 vaccine or a PCR test. About it informs BFM TV.
According to the publication, the Paris police counted about two thousand demonstrators. In the capital, some protesters set fire to garbage cans; the police, in turn, used tear gas to disperse the protesters. Protests also took place in cities such as Montpellier, Marseille, Toulouse, Annecy and Rouen.
On July 12, French President Emmanuel Macron announced that cinemas and concert halls would not be allowed to visit cinemas and concert halls from July 21 without vaccination or a negative PCR test. From the beginning of August, similar rules will also apply to bars, restaurants, shopping centers and the purchase of train and plane tickets. In addition, starting September 15, employers will have the right to suspend unvaccinated health workers from work.
In just a day after the president’s appeal, 1.7 million people in France signed up for vaccinations.
