(DailyVantage.com) – There’s been a lot of outrage across the country since President Joe Biden attempted to institute vaccine mandates, most of which Supreme Court rulings have overturned. But the US isn’t the only nation with ticked-off citizens. In Paris, France, the government has taken drastic measures, leading protestors to take to the streets — and one vaccine manufacturer is directly in their crosshairs.
On January 16, the French government passed a bill requiring citizens to present a vaccine pass to access most facilities, including transportation systems like airplanes and trains. The Vaccine Pass replaced the Health Pass, which previously required citizens to meet one of three conditions. They could:
- Be fully vaccinated against COVID-19
- Have had and recovered from COVID-19 in the past
- Have proof of a negative test
Now, those no longer apply, except for children ages 12 to 16, who can still use the Health Pass. However, testing for COVID-19 is no longer free, so families will have to bear the cost of testing children in this age range.
Obviously, many citizens are outraged because they’re losing their freedoms, stripped away by their government. They’re sharing their anger and frustration through their freedom of expression by protesting in front of Pfizer’s headquarters and calling the company — and French President Emmanuel Macron — “assassins.”
Sure, the government isn’t mandating citizens get the vaccine. Still, it’s making policies very clear: anyone who chooses not to get the jab will not enjoy the same freedoms as the vaccinated population. How is that fair?
