[앵커]

As more and more countries are tightening the enforcement of the ‘Quarantine Pass’, which proves that they have received the COVID-19 vaccine, the movement against this is growing stronger.

Massive protests continued across Europe over the weekend.

Meanwhile, additional allegations of quarantine violations by British Prime Minister Johnson have been raised. Correspondent Kim Ji-soo.

Thousands of citizens have gathered in the city center of Brussels, Belgium, to protest the authorities’ policies to strengthen quarantine.

The ‘Quarantine Pass’, which allowed access to multi-use facilities such as restaurants only by showing the vaccination certificate, was in fact a ‘vaccine dictatorship’ and protested harshly.

“The freedom I have is increasingly limited. I don’t want my children to inherit this dictatorship.”

Police arrested and detained the radical protesters.

Over the weekend, large-scale protests were held in Paris and other cities in France, with more than 100,000 people participating.

Protesters have criticized the government for trampling on freedom and treating them unfairly through vaccination certificates.

Some protesters have expressed their anger towards President Macron.

“President Macron said in an interview that he would annoy the unvaccinated, which is very serious. De Gaulle must have rolled from his grave when he heard that.”

Clashes between police and protesters have also erupted in Montpellier in the south and Nantes in the northwest.

In Germany, tens of thousands of protesters took place in major cities including Berlin, and protests continued throughout the weekend in Prague, Czech Republic, Vienna, Austria, and Zurich, Switzerland.

Meanwhile, in the UK, additional allegations have been raised that Prime Minister Boris Johnson had a ‘drinking party’ with his aides at his official residence in May 2020, when the first lockdown was imposed due to COVID-19.

Criticism is growing again against Prime Minister Johnson, who has already been driven into a political crisis after allegations that he enjoyed parties during the lockdown on several occasions.
