Projectiles thrown at the police at the time of the dispersal, four arrests, teams from France 3 and BFM attacked by demonstrators and exfiltrated under the protection of their bodyguards and then of the CRS ... In Marseille, for the third On Saturday in a row, some 4,800 people took part in the anti-health pass demonstration.
The procession stretched from the Old Port to the Prefecture, where the incidents took place, passing through the Canebière with Emmanuel Macron as a priority target.
In the crowd, where many tricolor flags were waved, yellow vests, antivax, union activists, angry white coats ... In this very motley procession, few masks and no barrier gestures were to be found. "We do not want to be vaccinated, we do not know the risks and the long-term effects, denounce Manel and Neïssa, two young nurses who have just graduated. Not only do we risk losing our job, but we have been told that our diploma will be suspended if we do not get vaccinated. We violate the Kouchner law on informed consent before a medical act. "And to be indignant:" We were requisitioned at the hospital, in intensive care, while we were still at school, we were made to work without protection and even asked to come if we had the asymptomatic Covid.Yesterday we were applauded and today they want to vaccinate us by force. "
"I am not a barcode"
A group of Marseilles septuagenarians also came to participate in this already regular meeting "for the future of our grandchildren". Some say they are vaccinated, others totally refuse the double injection, but all display the same rejection of "dictatorship" and demands ranging from "vaccine freedom" to "immigration control". “I'm in great shape and I want to stay that way without this vaccine. These stories of Covid, mask, health pass… We can't take this governance any longer, ”denounces Esther. “We are in resistance, I do not want to enter this new world order that has been announced to us for 10 years. I am not a barcode ”. "I am vaccinated, but the health pass is something else: I will not use it", assures Jean, a territorial official."We will see very quickly if it will be able to be applied in the face of our refusal".
The Marseille police chief Frédérique Camilleri condemned the new attacks against journalists, a France 2 team had been beaten and had to be evacuated last Saturday.
