Paris protests against introduction of Covid vaccine certificate

In Paris, Police fired tear gas during a demonstration against the introduction of the Covid vaccine certificate.

Large crowds gathered in the French capital to express their disagreement on the introduction of the vaccine certificate from the 9th August.

A legislation, approved last Wednesday, obliges persons to show the vaccine certificate when entering cafeterias, traveling on trains and by air. Many French citizens believe that this certificate suppresses  their freedom.

At least four protests were held in Paris on Saturday, with many others held throughout the country.
