Protesters against health measures are keeping up the pressure and calling for demonstrations again this Saturday, January 15. This day will also be the day of the deactivation of the health pass for vaccinated French people who have not had their third dose and whose previous injection dates back seven months. As of January 9, according to the Ministry of Health, there were still 800,000 people in this case. Also the declarants call the ” disabled to join their ranks.
Last weekend, in particular because of Emmanuel Macron’s announcements, the protest had experienced a renewed energy. For the new year, many French people are ” left home “, as the Yellow Vests called it.
A “return to normal life”?
Since then, the Omicron variant has continued to do its work, its incidence rate and its virulence suggesting a ” return to normal life “. In any case, it is a debate that the United Kingdom, Denmark and Spain wanted to have.
Along with this, justice is beginning to be heard here and there. In the United States, for example, the Supreme Court blocked the obligation to vaccinate in the workplace that Joe Biden wanted to impose.
In France, the procrastination around the vaccination pass continues in Parliament, after the hiccup of the Joint Joint Commission on January 13.

Calendar of events
Facebook has deleted the page of the Citizen Movement without Label (MCSE) collective, which has been trying for several months, without any provocation, to inform the population of the dates and places of the demonstrations. They created another rescue chain. ” Yet another GAFAM attack “, testifies Sabine, one of the administrators of the networks of the MCSE, tired of Facebook which “ censor the slightest word without being able to act “.
This will not prevent the demonstrators from meeting. In Paris, the Patriotes of Florian Philippot plan to gather at 2 p.m. on the Place du Trocadéro. On his side, the Union citoyenne pour la Liberté will resume its post at the Fountain of the Innocents, from 2 p.m..
In New Caledonia, in Noumea, the High Commission banned the demonstration supposed to take place from 8 a.m. in front of the government hotel. Under French law, however, a demonstration cannot be banned if the declaration has reached the prefecture in time. The prefect can simply propose a new route to the declarants.
