Macron Threatens French Citizens with Prison for Refusing COVID Vaccine
In France, Macron is threatening the citizens with prison time for refusing to receive the experimental COVID vaccine.
This is ironic, to say the least, given the fact that a year or so ago there were those of us who warned of this. We warned that eventually, the power-hungry dictatorial deep state leaders around the world would push for vaccine passports.
We also warned that we would end up at a place where governments would mandate people get the shot or they wouldn’t be able to live their lives.
The left and fake news media scoffed and called us ‘conspiracy theorists’!
Well, I hate to say it but we told you this was coming!
The Guardian reports:
Macron announced that from 21 July, anyone visiting a theatre, cinema, sports venue or festival with an audience of more than 50 people would need a health pass proving they were either fully vaccinated, had tested negative or were immune.
The same requirement will be extended to bars, cafes, restaurants, shopping centres (though not supermarkets), hospitals, long-distance trains, coaches and planes from 1 August, he said – including for children aged between 12 and 17 from 1 September.
People unable to present a valid health pass risk up to six months in prison and a fine of up to €10,000 (£8,500), according to the draft text of the law, while owners of “establishments welcoming the public” who fail to check patrons’ passes could go to jail for a year and be hit with a €45,000 fine.
Meanwhile, non-essential free coronavirus testing will also end in September, “to further encourage vaccination”, and healthcare professionals and retirement home workers who have not been vaccinated by 15 September will be suspended for a month to allow them to do so. Thereafter, they risk dismissal.
The big stick approach to vaccination, which goes further than that adopted by most governments, has had an immediate impact on take-up.
While 66% of French adults have received one dose and 53% are fully vaccinated, the number of first doses being administered had, in common with many western countries, started slowing as the campaign came up against more vaccine-hesitant or hard-to-reach groups.
However, in the hours after Macron’s announcement more than 20,000 slots a minute were being booked via Doctolib, France’s main medical appointments website, and Stanislas Niox-Chateau, the site’s chief executive, said vaccinations were set to accelerate rapidly to about 4.5m shots a week.
The huge demonstrations occurring against Macron’s covid pass and prison decrees have reportedly been organized in part by Florian Philippot, the leader of the Les Patriotes party. My French friends say Philippot appears to be a real patriot and nationalist. What do you think? pic.twitter.com/zbEK2qnGev

There will soon prison sentences attached to the new French law for vaccine passports.
The govt had to withdraw a similar law back in December following numerous riots,but merely re-introduced the same legislation with even tougher punishments https://t.co/TYMrTYnMRU

Do you think these draconian measures will come to the United States?
