175,500 demonstrators: mobilization in decline for the anti-sanitary pass – LCI


MOBILIZATION – This Saturday, 220 demonstrations took place in France against the health pass, bringing together more than 175,500 participants. A figure down from the previous Saturday, during which almost 215,000 people marched.

As the start of the school year approaches, opponents of the health pass demonstrated for the sixth consecutive Saturday in France. Wind up against the extension of this new tool necessary since August 9 to access various public places, many demonstrators also fiercely rejected the vaccination obligation for certain professions, as well as the vaccination of children and adolescents.

According to the Interior Ministry, the last report at 7 p.m. reported 220 demonstrations and 175,503 participants across the country. A figure in decline compared to last week: last Saturday, the authorities had identified 214,845 demonstrators, a record itself down slightly compared to the previous week. The mobilization is back to a level similar to that of July 24, when 161,000 people took to the streets.

The health pass, a new daily tool

The militant collective Le Nombre Jaune, which publishes a city-by-city count, has for its part identified 357,100 demonstrators “minimum” in France, against 388,843 demonstrators last week.

The demonstrations were generally calm, with twenty arrests recorded and a CRS member slightly injured in Marseille, said Beauvau.

8,000 demonstrators in Toulon, 9,500 in Montpellier

In the regions, 160,803 demonstrators gathered, in particular in certain towns in the South. And this, despite declining attendance in Toulon, where 8,000 people marched according to the Interior, well behind the gathering of 22,000 demonstrators last Saturday – one of the largest in France since the start of the mobilization.

In Montpellier, on the other hand, the number of protesters rose: 9,500 people gathered according to the Hérault prefecture, against 7,500 last week. A violent fight broke out between anti-fascists and activists of the Ligue du Midi, a far-right regionalist movement, with throwing bottles and wooden planks, France Bleu reported. Several people were injured, including one to the head.

In Marseille, where 4,000 demonstrators were counted, the crowd went to the University Hospital Institute (IHU) in infectious diseases headed by Professor Didier Raoult. In the rest of the southern half, several thousand people marched: 2,500 in Aix-en-Provence, 3,400 in Bordeaux (against 4,300 last week and 5,500 on July 31), 3,400 in Toulouse, 3,000 in Bayonne and 2,500 in Nice.

In the city center of Pau, a town of 77,000 inhabitants, some 2,700 people demonstrated in the morning, including one of the emblematic figures of the yellow vests movement, Jérôme Rodrigues. A mobilization similar to that of previous weekends, according to South West.

In the rest of the territory, 3,200 people demonstrated in Lille, while there were 4,100 demonstrators in Strasbourg, 2,300 in Nantes, 2,000 in Caen or even 1,800 in Nancy. In Lyon, between 2,000 and 2,500 people marched as part of the demonstration declared in the prefecture, according to franceinfo.

Outside mainland France, 2,600 people gathered in Reunion Island according to the police. A figure divided by two compared to the previous Saturday.

Mobilization on the rise, the Parisian “exception”

The capital is an exception to the overall decline in mobilization, with a growing number of demonstrators: the four Parisian processions gathered some 14,700 protesters, against 13,9000 a week earlier. Two processions were initiated by collectives of yellow vests, one departing from Place du Châtelet and the other near the Ministry of Health at noon, and another at the call of Florian Philippot, head of file of the Patriots.

The former number 2 of the National Front has moreover “dedicated” the demonstration at his call to Professor Didier Raoult while the slogan “Hands off Raoult” appeared among the French flags. Support that follows statements from the Director-General of Assistance Publique-Hôpitaux de Marseille (AP-HM) who does not wish to renew the 69-year-old infectious disease specialist, promoter of a very controversial treatment of Covid-19 patients , at the head of the IHU Méditerranée Infection.

The health pass has been extended since Monday to more than 120 large shopping centers and stores in the Paris region and the southern half of France, while restaurants, cafes, theaters and sports also require it. To access these public places, you must bring proof of complete vaccination, an antigen test of less than 72 hours or proof of contamination with Covid-19 in the last six months.

Friday evening, nearly 2,100 patients with the virus were still hospitalized in critical care in France, the situations being very contrasted from one region to another. The CHU de Guadeloupe beats the recall of all its staff and according to a press release from the regional prefect, “60 more deaths are to be deplored” since Monday. Friday, the Prime Minister traveling to the Etampes hospital center, in Essonne, had stressed that none of the five patients admitted to intensive care was vaccinated, seeing there “proof by example”.
