Massive Protests Take Place Throughout Paris: 'We Are Not Guinea Pigs', 'It Is Our Choice'
- Pictures from Paris show thousands of anti-vaxxers marching through city in opposition to vaccine passports
- Government approved bill which means vaccine passport requirement introduced for most places in August
- Passport requires people to be vaccinated, to provide a negative test or proof of recent recovery from Covid
- Four separate protests are being held in Paris today with similar protests also taking place in other cities
Thousands of demonstrators fought running battles with police in Paris today as protests against a vaccine passport were held across France.
Around 150 separate events were organised in major cities and town after the government used emergency powers to bring in new anti-Coronavirus measures.
By early afternoon on Saturday, tear gas and baton charges were being used against violent groups in Paris.
Four marches descended on the Place de la Bastille, where water cannons and squads of gendarmes and CRS riot police were waiting for them.
'Some of the marches are illegal, and they are being joined by anarchist groups who are not directly linked to the protest,' said one officer at the scene.
More than 160,000 people marched in Paris and other major cities in protest against President Emmanuel Macron's vaccine drive last weekend, and a similar number was expected this Saturday.
Many of the protests were organised by the so-called Gilets Jaunes, or Yellow Vest anti-government movement.
Named after their distinctive fluorescent motoring jackets, they have been behind a series of riots in cities like Paris over the past three years.
Mr Macron's decision three weeks ago to overcome the hesitation of millions of French by all but compelling them to vaccinate is supported by up to 65 per cent of the population, according to polls.
An emergency bill imposing the health pass for access to cafes, restaurants, shopping centres, trains and long-distance buses was passed by parliament last week, and will come into effect on Monday.
But the measures have triggered fury among a minority, channelling hostility towards the President.
Anti-vaccine health workers in their white coats were among those marching at the head of crowds of people today.
The pass requires vaccinations or a quick negative test or proof of a recent recovery from COVID-19 and mandates vaccinations for all health care workers by mid-September.
Apple To Install Vaccine Passport Feature On All iPhones With iOS15 Update
Apple has announced the coming iOS15 update will include a vaccine passport-like feature within the Health app.
The new feature will allow users to store their medical records within their phone, which can then be shared to regain access to basic aspects of society, such as travel, work, and entertainment.
The update will be released in the fall and will be available to download as a public beta in July.
Critics of vaccine passports have warned they will be used to discriminate against those who are vaccine-hesitant or refuse to take the COVID jab. The passports will essentially be employed as a means of applying pressure through social exclusion and denial of services, a tactic being pushed by mainstream media in the United States and Australia.
Mask-Free Sweden Nears Zero Daily Covid Deaths
Anders Tegnell said on Friday that there was “a lot we do not know” about Delta and cautioned against drawing “far-reaching conclusions” about the coronavirus strain. He noted that the variant had been circulating in Sweden “for quite some time” with little effect, particularly in high-risk settings such as nursing homes.
His comments were made in response to newly released data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) suggesting the Delta strain is more transmissible and could potentially cause more severe illness. The New York Times and other media outlets ran stories reporting that the CDC now believes the Delta variant is as contagious as chickenpox – but this comparison didn’t seem to impress Tegnell.
“It is difficult to say how contagious Delta is, [as] when it comes to chickenpox, we have been able to follow the disease for several years. The infectivity [of Delta] seems to be very uneven – in some cases, one person infects a hundred people, then we have other occasions when an infected person does not infect anyone at all,” he told Sweden’s Aftonbladet.
In separate remarks, he pointed to the fact that one-third of the country’s municipalities reported zero new Covid cases over the past week. At the same time, there was an uptick in cases among young people in Stockholm and other large cities.
And while US health authorities are pressing Americans in “high transmission” areas to mask up, Sweden dropped its last remaining mask recommendation – related to public transport – on July 1. While Sweden’s public health agency has supported measures such as social distancing and remote working, it has no recommendations for the use of face coverings in public spaces.
Reviled by the media for refusing to impose harsh lockdowns, Sweden’s less draconian approach to the health crisis appears to be paying off: The Scandinavian nation has recorded a total of eight Covid-linked deaths so far this month, an average of 0.25 deaths per day. While it’s possible this number will increase due to reporting lags, deaths have undoubtedly plummeted over the past several months. On June 4, Sweden reported 13 deaths – more than the entire month of July.

Despite 'Delta' Alarmism, U.S. Covid Deaths At Lowest Level Since March 2020
Yet at the same time that all this alarm is mounting, the actual number of COVID-19 deaths is at a nadir. Harvard Medical School Professor Martin Kulldorff pointed this out on Twitter, writing that “In [the] USA, COVID mortality is now the lowest since the start of the pandemic in March 2020.”
He shared this graph from OurWorldInData which clearly shows how COVID deaths per million are at, relatively speaking, extreme lows. Far more people were dying from COVID-19 months ago as we were winding down restrictions than are dying today as some call to reinstate them.
Hospitalizations are concerning, yes, but primarily insofar as they lead to high numbers of deaths, which, thankfully, is not the case so far with the Delta variant.
Others would say that deaths are a “lagging indicator” that come in several weeks after the increased spread of the disease. But the Delta variant has been spreading in the US for months now, and deaths have remained relatively flat, in part due to widespread vaccination.
“‘Emergencies’ have always been the pretext on which the safeguards of individual liberty have eroded,” as Nobel-Prize-winning economist Freidrich Hayek put it. “And once they are suspended it is not difficult for anyone who has assumed emergency powers to see to it that the emergency will persist.”
Examples of this timeless truth abound throughout history up until present day: from the internment of Japanese-Americans during World War II to the now-permanent infringements on our civil liberties after 9/11 to the sweeping expansion of government control during the COVID-19 pandemic.
But, whether politicians like it or not, the COVID-19 crisis is largely over. So don’t fall for cynical arguments from power-hungry individuals who want their “emergency” powers to become permanent.
UK Lockdown Advocate Now Says Official Covid Infection (Dropping) Rates 'Fishy'
Who are the ‘conspiracy theorists’ now?
Reported COVID cases in the UK have dropped by 22% since Thursday last week and cases are falling in every English local authority.
Up until Wednesday, official day to day statistics showed that cases had dropped for seven days in a row, despite restrictions largely being lifted on July 19th.
The fact that the Euro football championships, ‘freedom day’ and the delta variant haven’t combined to create an explosion of new COVID cases seems to have disappointed lockdown advocates like Professor Tim Spector.
According to Spector, who previously called for mask mandates to remain indefinitely, the “sudden drop” in people testing positive for the virus in the government’s data is “very suspicious”.
“It’s dropped something like 30% in two days, which is pretty much unheard of in pandemics, and remember this is happening without restrictions, without lockdowns, without some sudden event,” said Spector.
“To me, it looks a bit fishy. It looks as if there’s some other explanation for this other than suddenly the virus has given up,” he added.
OK, calm down Mr. tin foil hat.
Spector’s rhetoric is particularly funny given that the media has previously demonized anyone who questions official government statistics on COVID infection rates and death tolls as dangerous conspiracy theorists.
Now that the numbers appear to be disproving the argument for lockdown, suddenly those numbers are “suspicious” and unreliable.
As we previously highlighted, Professor Neil Ferguson, the epidemiologist who predicted there would be as many as 200,000 COVID cases a day by this point, was also proven spectacularly wrong yet again.
This also speaks to the fact that lockdown advocates who have built up significant acclaim and media exposure over the last 16 months are seemingly upset that the pandemic might be coming to an end.
Irate Twitter mobs who have repeatedly demanded harsher lockdowns also seem to be genuinely upset when COVID infection rates and death tolls begin to drop.
While all the time grandstanding as “kind” and “compassionate” as they screech at you for “killing granny.”
The New Lapid-Bennett Government Downgrades Israel's Operations In Middle-East - Russia Has Upper Hand
From Riyadh to Gaza, Abu Dhabi to Tehran, from Beijing to Brussels to Moscow world leaders understand what happened. The strategic blow Israel took from Russia this week will doubtlessly be followed from many. Israel's allies and enemies will assess their options in light of the Lapid-Bennett government's embrace of dependence on a hostile administration in Washington.
Tens Of Thousands Of Covid-19 Vaccine Injured Fight Censorship
Are you thinking of getting a COVID shot?
Is your teenager being forced to take a shot in order to return to college?
Do you have friends on the fence about vaccines?
Are you concerned about their possible side effects?
If you go online and do simple research on the term “COVID Vaccine Side Effects” you are presented with a gaggle of links that are strangely similar.
“Side effects are minor and common.” “Side effects are a sign that your vaccine is working properly.”
When you visit YouTube and do the same search, again, the videos have a consistent theme. “The risk from the vaccines are less than the risks from COVID” and “vaccine side effects are actually a good thing.”
If you post a comment or video on Facebook about vaccine side effects your post is deleted and your account may be closed.
But when you go to an uncensored website like Bitchute.com or Rumble.com and do the same search, you see hundreds of videos from real people who have had horrific side effects from their injections.
This website is dedicated to sharing the truth about these people and their testimonials.
Watch for yourself and make up your own mind. Is it worth it to risk life-changing and even fatal side effects from a vaccine for a disease that is survived by 99.98% of people under 70?
Below, you will find countless stories of side effects directly from those involved, or sadly, if they died, from their relatives. (Source.)
I wish some of these videos had more documentation, but some of these stories we have also covered in the past.
More and more of these people are gathering online to find support and help each other, as their injuries are denied to be related to the COVID-19 injections, and their own doctors usually have no answers, or sometimes not even a desire to help them.
Here are some other places online where people are gathering to tell their COVID-19 “vaccine” stories.

CDC: Vaccinated As Likely To Spread Covid As Unvaccinated
Data released today by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) showed total reports of serious injuries following COVID vaccination, across all age groups, spiked by 14,717 — to 63,000 — compared with the previous week.
The data comes directly from reports submitted to the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS), the primary government-funded system for reporting adverse vaccine reactions in the U.S.
Excluding “foreign reports” filed in VAERS, 435,007 adverse events, including 5,612 deaths and 34,890 serious injuries, were reported in the U.S.
In the U.S., 340.4 million COVID vaccine doses had been administered as of July 23. This includes: 137 million doses of Moderna’s vaccine, 189 million doses of Pfizer and 13 million doses of the Johnson & Johnson (J&J) COVID vaccine.
Of the 5,612 U.S. deaths reported as of July 23, 14% occurred within 24 hours of vaccination, 20% occurred within 48 hours of vaccination and 34% occurred in people who experienced an onset of symptoms within 48 hours of being vaccinated.
This week’s U.S. data for 12- to 17-year-olds show:
- 15,086 total adverse events, including 909 rated as serious and 16 reported deaths — one less than what VAERS showed last week. Two of the nine deaths were suicides.
- The most recent reported deaths include a 13-year-old boy (VAERS I.D. 1463061) who died after receiving a Moderna vaccine, a 16-year-old boy (VAERS I.D. 1466009) who died after receiving his second dose of Pfizer and a 16-year-old boy (VAERS I.D. 1475434) who died with an enlarged heart six days after receiving his first Pfizer dose.
- 2,223 reports of anaphylaxis among 12- to 17-year-olds with 99% of cases
attributed to Pfizer’s vaccine.
- 394 reports of myocarditis and pericarditis (heart inflammation) with 390 cases attributed to Pfizer’s vaccine.
- 72 reports of blood clotting disorders, with all cases attributed to Pfizer.
This week’s total U.S. VAERS data, from Dec. 14, 2020 to July 23, 2021, for all age groups combined, show:
- 21% of deaths were related to cardiac disorders.
- 54% of those who died were male, 43% were female and the remaining death reports did not include gender of the deceased.
- The average age of death was 73.4.
- As of July 23, 2,572 pregnant women reported adverse events related to COVID vaccines, including 885 reports of miscarriage or premature birth.
- Of the 2,483 cases of Bell’s Palsy reported, 50% were attributed to Pfizervaccinations, 43% to Moderna and 6% to J&J.
- 467 reports of Guillain-Barré Syndrome, with 39% of cases attributed to Pfizer, 36% to Moderna and 24% to J&J.
- 119,539 reports of anaphylaxis with 44% of cases attributed to Pfizer’s vaccine, 48% to Moderna and 8% to J&J.
- 7,864 reports of blood clotting disorders. Of those, 3,336 reports were attributed to Pfizer, 2,846 reports to Moderna and 1,637 reports to J&J.
- 1,944 cases of myocarditis and pericarditis with 1,819 cases attributed to Pfizer, 639 cases to Moderna and 68 cases to J&J’s COVID vaccine.
Internal CDC document reveals vaccinated, even if not sick, can spread virus
The CDC now says even those people fully vaccinated for COVID are able to get, and spread, the virus.
According to internal documents obtained by The Washington Post, the CDC said it’s time to “Acknowledge the war has changed.”
The document outlined unpublished data showing fully vaccinated people might spread the Delta variant at the same rate as unvaccinated people, CNN reported.
It concludes the delta variant is “highly contagious, likely to be more severe” and that “breakthrough infections may be as transmissible as unvaccinated cases.”
“‘I think the central issue is that vaccinated people are probably involved to a substantial extent in the transmission of delta,’ Jeffrey Shaman, a Columbia University epidemiologist, wrote in an email after reviewing the CDC slides.
“‘In some sense, vaccination is now about personal protection — protecting oneself against severe disease. Herd immunity is not relevant as we are seeing plenty of evidence of repeat and breakthrough infections.’”
Thus far, researchers have focused on viral load — a term for how much of the virus is present in infected peoples’ bodies — which can affect transmissibility and severity. Infections with the Delta variant lead to higher levels of virus in the body, even in breakthrough cases in fully vaccinated individuals, the document said.
If vaccinated people get infected anyway, they have as much virus in their bodies as unvaccinated people — that means they’re as likely to infect someone else as unvaccinated people who get infected, CNN reported.
