Thousands of protesters took to the streets Saturday throughout France for the 4th consecutive weekend of rallies against a requirement for a brand-new pandemic health pass required to get in most organizations or utilize public transportation. The newest round of demonstrations come after Frances highest court supported the bulk of a brand-new law requiring the health pass and for health care workers to be immunized against the coronavirus. Beginning Monday, the health passes will be needed to enter dining establishments, bars, and shopping centers– and to access long-distance travel by bus, airplane or train. At least 7 million have gotten their first vaccine shot given that Macron revealed the health pass on July 12.

Surveys reveal most people in France support the health passes. In July, Macron also revealed that health care employees were required to get immunized by Sept. 15– or they would be prohibited from work and not be paid.
