Rebelote. Opponents of the health pass are forecasting more than 200 demonstrations in the main cities of France on Saturday 21 August afternoon, on the occasion of a sixth consecutive weekend of mobilization.

In Paris, four processions are organized, including two at the initiative of collectives of “yellow vests”, one starting from the Place du Châtelet and the other near the Ministry of Health at noon. Another massive gathering at the call of the Patriots by Florian Philippot is organized from Place Denfert-Rochereau at 2:30 p.m.

Last week, the weekend of August 15, the Interior Ministry had identified 214,845 demonstrators across the country, a slight drop in participation compared to the previous week. The militant collective Le Nombre Jaune, which publishes a city-by-city count, has counted more than 388,843 demonstrators across France, a slight drop from the 415,000 counted by the same organization the previous Saturday.

The extension of the health pass, already compulsory in bars, restaurants and hospitals, continues in France. Since Monday, more than 120 large shopping centers and stores in the Paris region and the southern half of France now have the obligation to systematically check the document.
