French ‘freedom convoy’ gets underway in protest at Covid-19 restrictions

France24 says Protesters set out from southern France on Wednesday in what they call a “freedom convoy” that will converge on Paris and Brussels to demand an end to COVID-19 restrictions, inspired by demonstrators who have blocked a Canadian border crossing.

About 200 protesters assembled in a parking lot in Nice, on France’s Mediterranean coast, with many displaying Canadian flags in a nod to the truckers in Canada who are protesting their government’s COVID-19 restrictions.

The protesters in Nice said they planned to head first to Paris, then on to Brussels – headquarters of the European Union – to demand, among other things, the scrapping of rules barring people from public venues if they do not have a COVID-19 vaccination.
