Covid-19: “To make people believe that this health pass has any health interest, it is to lie to people”, says Florian Philippot

The former member of the National Rally is preparing to participate in the sixth Saturday demonstration against the health pass, and says he wants to put back “A little sense, serenity and common sense” in the debate.

“To make people believe that this health pass has any health interest, is to lie to people”, said the president of the movement Les Patriotes Florian Philippot on Saturday August 21 on franceinfo, while opponents of the health pass demonstrate for the sixth weekend in a row across France.

franceinfo: Why are you protesting?

Florian Philippot: It is to demonstrate for the freedom of people, I do not resign myself to being in a country where you have to show an HIV status or a vaccination record to have a coffee on the terrace. It’s demonstrating for common sense. To make believe that this health pass, beyond the extremely shocking principles which underlie its philosophy, has any health interest is to lie to people. I notice that most of the countries of the world are not convinced by this health pass and that a lot of European countries do not want it because they do not want this apartheid society.

Why do you reject the health pass? It does have a use, however.

This is totally wrong. The countries that have implemented it have not seen a stop in the circulation of the virus, on the other hand they have entered a terrible society. There is the whole vaccine, the health pass, the restrictions. This is the French model. Israel is ahead of us, other countries are ahead of us. It does not work. Israel has an epidemic outbreak again and they want to put in a health pass for over 3 years. From the point of view of science this is not effective. In Sweden, which has refused the confinements, the restrictions, there is one death per day. It is not good to pretend that the health pass will prevent the circulation of the virus. In the United Kingdom, where everything reopened on July 19, the apocalypse was announced and that is not what happened at all. The United Kingdom does not regret having restored its freedom to the people.

Isn’t this movement a way for you to stay in the news?

I haven’t been in the movement for three weeks. I have been there for 40 weeks. We have been demonstrating since October 24, 2020 against the restriction policy and to put a little science, serenity and common sense in this completely crazy affair. I am demonstrating against the health pass and for vaccine freedom.
