Mass protests in France against corona rules

There were therefore more than 180 protests across the country. It is already the third weekend in a row that there are large corona protests across the country. Last Saturday, more than 160,000 people took part in them.

France is currently fighting a fourth corona wave. Head of state Emmanuel Macron announced the new, stricter hygiene regulations in mid-July in view of the increasing number of infections. Parliament approved the controversial innovations earlier this week after heated debates. The last hurdle will have to be taken by the new law on Thursday, when the Constitutional Council, convened by Prime Minister Jean Castex, takes a position on the subject of severe criticism.
