In the largest cities of France, on the afternoon of July 14, protests were held against mandatory vaccination against coronavirus for medical workers and a ban on visiting public places without a COVID certificate, or a PCR test.
This is reported by Reuters.
The protesters chanted the slogans вЂњ Freedom!вЂќ, вЂњ Down with sanitary passes!вЂќ and вЂњ Down with the dictatorship!вЂќ.
In Paris, police used tear gas several times when protesters overturned garbage cans and set fire to a mechanical excavator.
Recall that French President Emmanuel Macron announced radical measures to combat the rapid increase in the incidence of COVID-19 earlier this week.
Recall that the Italian authorities in April adopted a law that obliged all doctors and employees of the health system who work in pharmacies and medical offices to get vaccinated against coronavirus.
