Thousands of protesters took to the streets Saturday throughout France for the 4th consecutive weekend of rallies versus a requirement for a new pandemic health pass needed to go into most companies or utilize public transportation. The newest round of protests come after Frances highest court supported the majority of a new law needing the health pass and for health care employees to be vaccinated against the coronavirus. Beginning Monday, the health passes will be required to go into bars, restaurants, and shopping malls– and to access long-distance travel by bus, plane or train.

Surveys show most individuals in France support the health passes. In July, Macron also announced that health care workers were required to get vaccinated by Sept. 15– or they would be banned from work and not be paid. At least 7 million have actually gotten their first vaccine shot because Macron revealed the health pass on July 12.
