The anti-health pass mobilization did not succeed in Vaucluse. In the city center of Avignon, nearly 4,000 demonstrators marched against the pass and the vaccine obligation.
But it hovered this Saturday, September 4 like an air of split. The No pasaran 84 collective has decided to no longer join the procession and to counter-demonstrate on the Place Pie. Franck is a graphic designer and claims to be a progressive leftist. “We tried to demonstrate at the head of the procession and then at the end of the procession, but each time it was uneasy. We wanted to number but we can no longer campaign in contact with people with whom we do not share any value“, he indicates.
Attempted intrusion in Provence
In the main procession, indeed the siren of the firefighters who led the way on previous Saturdays was found a little further. The soldiers of the fire against the vaccination obligation gave way to the French flags and the crosses of Lorraine. Going up the rue de la République, some even tried by force to enter the editorial staff of Provence while the demonstration driver called the journalists “collaborators” or “liars”.
However, we still find nuanced opinions among those involved. Especially nursing staff who are worried about their future if they are not vaccinated by September 15.
