On Saturday, July 17,2021 about  114,000 demonstrators in France including 18,000 in Paris protested against the announcement of President Emmanuel Macron on  July 12, 2021 that there would be a pass sanitaire – a proof on a portable telephone or on paper that attests that the  person presented it has had  complete vaccination against Covid 19  and has waited one week after the second vaccine or a week after AstraZeneca  to  have the certificate or has recovered from Covid19 or has a proof of a negative Covid 19 test no earlier than 24 hours before it is presented.

Now in France people need proof of vaccination or a negative Covid 19 test to go on long distance transportation and to events with more than 50 people.

President Macron said that the Covid vaccine would be mandatory for all health services personnel.  It would be mandatory for them to get vaccinated by August 1, 2021 to have the pass sanitaire by the end of August.

He said the passse sanitaire would be necessary for all cultural and leisure time events with more than 50 people including movies, theaters, museums and even commercial centers. It would also be necessary for hospitals and some other medical centers and for long distance travel. People wanting to eat in restaurants or drink at bars would also have to have the pass sanitaire.

The protests were in several cities in France including Bordeaux, Marseille, and Perpignan.

The gilets jaunes ( Yellow Jackets) joined in the demonstrations.

The protestors cried no to Macron’s pass sanitaire and called for liberty.

Some said “Macron demission” meaning to get him out of power and some others called him a dictator.

The demonstrators want people to have the freedom to choose to get vaccinated or not. They want liberty.

Monday, July 19, the deputies getting  the votes of more than 60 out of 577 in the Assemblée Natonale presented a request to the Conseil des Ministres to examine the pass sanitaire.. They judged that it was not to be enforced for entry to commercial centers.

On Tuesday it will be examined by the Conseil d’Etat and then on Thursday the bill goes to the Senat.


The pass sanitaire if required for restaurant and bars would go into effect August,1, 2021.
