French interior ministry official figures said that more than 120,000 people protested against COVID-19 health passes across France on Saturday, September 11, marking its ninth consecutive week of protests.
The demonstrations started after health passes made it become discriminatory against unvaccinated citizens.
The French Health Ministry reported that health passes are required to enter public establishments which bring in more than 50 people.
AFP reported that the French interior ministry recorded 121,000 people who protested in France and 19,000 in Paris. Authorities apprehended 85 people in the capital city due to conflicts that arose after three policemen were slightly injured during demonstrations.
Demonstrations last weekend recorded 140,000 people in attendance.
The recent protests were held after former French health minister Agnes Buzyn was charged with “endangering the lives of others” after investigators decided that there were grounds to convict her.
