– PARIS, AUGUST 14 – From Paris to Marseille and from Lille to Bordeaux, tens of thousands of Frenchmen demonstrated for the fifth consecutive Saturday against the Green pass and “for freedom of choice”, after its extension to the majority part of public places. In the capital, the two main parades chanted slogans such as “Free France”, “Stop coronafolie” or “Take back your Macron pass and go”.

Anti-pass protests have been on the rise. Just over 237,000 people took to the streets last week, according to the interior ministry, more than double the movement’s start in mid-July. Today about 250 thousand were expected. (HANDLE).
