As Italy kicks in with more restrictions for the unvaccinated, protests erupted across the country over the last few days.
Watch this crowd chant, "freedom" and "born free and we'll die free" as they BURN their vaccine passports:
Vaccinated Italians are standing in unity with their unvaccinated neighbours to protest their government's authoritarian health mandates.
Italy has introduced a green pass which is an extension of the EU's digital Covid certificate. People will need the pass to be served indoors at restaurants and to enter stadiums, theatres, museums, gyms, swimming pools etc.
Under the new mandates unvaccinated people are still allowed to visit coffee shops, restaurants, bars etc. BUT they'll have to stay outside– where those dirty unvaccinated riffraff belong!
Starting September 1, the pass will be mandatory for teachers and university students and you will need to show the pass to travel on trains, planes ferries and long-distance coaches.
In Italy, and across Europe, vaccine statuses are digitalized and although the act of burning their passports os mainly symbolic, this was a significant moment.
From the start of the pandemic we were told, "we are all in this together" but now we are all being separated and treated as two different-class citizens.
This viral video has gotten attention all over the world. The moment they threw their vaccine pass into the flame was the moment that reminded us that we are strong when we are united.
