Following Macron’s announcements last night, French citizens reacted strongly and the hashtag “Gilets Jaunes” (Yellow Vests) has been trending for several hours
Many people all over France are already calling for anti-lockdown/anti-government demonstrations on July 14 / Bastille Day, to oppose Macron.
Note: Macron has announced that Paris will be cordoned off and under lockdown on July 14 : it will not be possible to enter the heart of the city and the parade without the vaccination passport.
If a large part of the French population has already submitted to vaccination, mainly out of fear or comfort, another large segment of the country remains irreducibly opposed to the vaccine.
Some political observers fear that this divide will degenerate and that the country will fracture along these lines of polarization, perhaps leading to the emergence of a populist movement similar to and equivalent to the yellow vests.
