- 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.
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.
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.

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.
