Across Europe in recent weeks protests have multiplied against the measures of the wearing of compulsory masks deemed to be liberticidal.
The latest demonstration took place on August 16 in Madrid. Chanting the word “Freedom”, hundreds of demonstrators gathered in the Spanish capital to protest against the tightening of the obligation to wear a mask.
Initially, the wearing of the mask was imposed on public transport in May, before spreading to other public spaces in the following months. An obligation accompanied by various measures such as the closing of nightclubs or the ban on smoking without a gap of 2 meters.
It could among other things be read on the panels of the demonstrators “The virus does not exist” or “The mask kills”.
Another large-scale demonstration took place on August 1 in Berlin, also to protest against the measures put in place in the context of the Covid-19 pandemic. This demonstration, called “The end of the pandemic – Freedom Day” had gathered more than 20,000 people with cries of “Bas les masques”, “No to compulsory vaccination”, “We are making noise because you are stealing our freedom ”or“ Think! Do not wear the mask! “.
The same day a similar protest movement took place in London. The signs could read in particular “Masks are muzzles”, “Stop the Nazification of the United Kingdom” or “Freedom rather than fear”.
The common point of all these demonstrations, which are multiplying across Europe, seems to be the protest against measures deemed undemocratic, alienating, or even dangerous in the case of wearing a mask or compulsory vaccination. At the same time, a questioning of the current seriousness of the coronavirus is also beginning to emerge, it is considered as largely instrumentalized by the political powers in place.
