Anti-vax protests in Europe: French protesters chant 'Macron we will pi** you off'
Members of the French ministerial cabinet agreed to lift certain travel rules designed to prevent Brits from traveling into the country earlier this week as Omicron tightened its grip with a record-breaking high of 332,000 new Covid cases recorded in France on Wednesday. Despite some optimistic developments from the continent, fresh anti-lockdown protests occurred in countries across the EU on Saturday. In Austria, riot police watched on as hundreds of furious demonstrators were pictured marching through the streets of Vienna in protest at the nation's Covid curbs. Marches were also seen in Paris and Magdeburg, Germany, as thousands joined together in protest against what are perceived to be excessively strict restrictions and mandatory vaccinations.
