France is pushing ahead with its mandate that people present a Covid passport showing they are fully vaccinated for access to public venues, bars and restaurants, shopping centers and so forth. The first decree goes into effect this week and the Bill should be rubber-stamped by President Macron’s majority in Parliament on Friday. There is widespread resistance by those who don’t want the vaccine but still want their freedom.
Some say it is a totalitarian move, apartheid, a health dictatorship; others claim that it is the only way to get French people to accept to be vaccinated and stop the spread of Covid. The one thing everybody agrees on is that, if you want a life, and a job, after mid-September, you will need to prove you have had both Covid shots at all times.
