France’s President Emmanuel Macron publicly addressed his nation making the serious announcement that citizens without a ‘COVID pass’ will be banned from a multitude of daily activities. Such basic activities include going to shopping malls, restaurants and using public transportation.
“Macron made clear that only those who have taken the vaccine, can prove recent recovery from COVID or a negative test will be allowed to enter the venues, in addition to hospitals, bars, cafes and tourist attractions” reports Summit News.
One Twitter user posted the video of Macron’s address, which is in French, and translated some of the speech to English. “The unvaccinated will bear the brunt of the restrictions rather than everyone…from the beginning of august, the vax pass will be needed for coffee shops, restaurants, supermarkets, hospitals, trains, buses etc…”

“NO WORDS” wrote the user. “I cannot even begin to explain how I feel right now. To have the president of my country calmly declare a full-on police state…in a way even WORSE than the Nazi occupation of France…furious, shocked, disbelieving…I just cannot deal w/this. Revolution.”
Summit News reports “after Macros first announced measures to prevent the unvaccinated from using public transport late last year, the plan was derailed after fierce protests.” This time around, Macros said vaccinations will also become mandatory for health workers and anyone who works with the elderly or vulnerable.
Macron also stated, “depending on the evolution of the situation, we will without doubt have to consider obligatory vaccines for everyone in France.” Summit news warns, “expect the measures being introduced in France to be gradually replicated throughout Europe as the unvaccinated become second class citizens unable to perform basic life functions.”
