TURIN, Italy (PNN) - July 23, 2021 - Thousands of people flooded the streets of Turin, a city located in northern Italy, Thursday evening to protest harsh and unlawful government restrictions for unvaccinated citizens, dubbed the "green pass".
Italian Prime Minister Mario Draghi told a press conference Thursday that the country will need to act and suppress another wave of COVID-19 infections at a time the Delta variant is spreading throughout Europe; though there has been no empirical proof of the existence of the so-called “Delta variant” and it is now known globally that the PCR test being used to establish statistical numbers of cases is totally inaccurate.
The green pass - a digit certificate containing proof of immunization - will be necessary for anyone older than 12 to enter stadiums, museums, theaters, cinemas, exhibition centers, swimming pools, and gyms. The pass is an extension of the European Union's digital COVID certificate and will also be required for restaurants.
The updated version of the vaccine passport will begin on August 5 and didn't sit well with residents who see their freedoms whittled away by the government. This violation of freedom sparked a massive protest in Turin.
"As soon as the Italian government announced the introduction of the health passport people took to the streets to protest. The feeling in the streets is one of anger at the government's decision," one Twitter user said.
Like the thousands of French citizens protesting in the streets in the past week, the Italian people were outraged by additional restrictions.
The removal of COVID measures to restart European economies was widely hailed as a success. The false claims of a new “Delta variant” that does not exist is providing politicians seeking power over the freedoms of the people the optimal cover to implement more populous control via green passes.
