Massive anti-virus pass protests with tens of thousands of participants are being held in major French cities for the third week in a row.


Around 3000 members of the security forces were deployed to tackle the growing number of riots across the French capital.

The numbers of protestors grow as the French government has passed a bill with requires a covid pass to attend most places in the city.

The protests have turned violent as what began as a peaceful march resulted in clashes with the police followed by the usage of water cannons ad teargas.

France is one the most anti-vax nations, as the French blame many healthy and sanitary crisises in the past on the French government.
