    So the vaccine mandate they are protesting is just for healthcare workers?

    Not only for healthcare workers.
    They want to submit the access to bars, restaurants, théâtre, shopping malls etc to showing an ID and a vaccine certificate or a negative test.
    This is unbearable even for the vaccined people.
    The protesters aren't only antivax.
    But the law hasn't been published yet.
    It's about the Macron's speech last monday.
    The "Conseil Constitutionnel " (the équivalent of your Supreme court) will probably reduce most of the project.

    One exemple: The landlord of a bar or a restaurant can get one year of prison and 45000 € fine if a customer is found without the required documents...
    This is just crazy.

    sounds too heavy handed. In the meantime Pogacar won another stage of the TdF!

    Seems 2million have just reged to get vaxed, so having some good effect.
    Our tenant, over from Florida, was vaxed way back in March, but can't prove it here. He thrives on concerts and events, so looked into getting re-vaxed here to comply. No chance, booked up for well over a month.
    His complaint is that the speach was aimed at the French (OK) but ignored the tourists, who provide a lot of income here.

    I just discovered the Dr Mac Cullough.
    Is this man credible?
    His analyse of the last décisions of Macron is terrible.
    And what he says about vaccines is a real bomb.
    See the video :

    Huge protests today again.
    Seems it will last and grow.
    Some MPs have been threatened with death if the law passes.

    Baffling.I have almost never been in a French town that didn't have a street named after Louis Pasteur by way of recognition of his work to improve health standards.Which makes it all the odder that a fair number of the current inhabitants are so opposed to the idea.Do those refuseniks that work in hospitals have such a strong dislike of being compelled to wash their hands too?

    Do you want to be in a crowded restaurant with a bunch of unvaccinated Covid-19 infected patrons? I don’t.

    We have been in a few restaurants since then but almost always outdoors.

    By the way I just landed in Paris coming from Guiana (red zone) and had no check about my vaccine status...
    And no quarantine needed.
    Soon it will be more complex to enter a store to buy a bottle of milk...

    Going back to our Florida tenant, he stopped by to say he was going to a concert in Jonzac and the organisers had offered a free test to those who need it to get in.

    The protesters here are largely on film, and the police are recieving camera video from dozens of people who filmed the demo. The state government has established a special police task force to track them down and fine them.
