In many parts of France, it was protested that the Covid-19 vaccine was made compulsory for some professions and the Covid-19 health card application. Thousands of people participated in the protests in 174 points of the country, especially the capital city Paris.
While protests were held at 3 points in Paris, thousands of people chanted “Macron, we don’t want your card” in the protests that started in the Bastille square, where people wearing yellow vests participated as well. Some protestors sang the French National Anthem (La Marseillaise), while others chanted “Macron resign.”
Police and gendarmerie used tear gas and water cannon while intervening with the protestors. A police officer who was injured during the intervention of the protestors was taken to the hospital by ambulance.
