ANYONE thinking the French have succumbed completely to President Macron’s Covid tyranny can breathe again. All is not yet lost. There is life still in France’s revolutionary spirit. One Monsieur Rodolphe Bacquet has been running a campaign protesting against the oppressive French ‘Sanitation/Vaccine pass’. He has created a website campaign featuring information videos and has recently appeared in a debate on a French TV news channel.
He has handed a petition backed by an impressive 1.2million signatures to the French National Assembly and the Senate of the French government. The signatories included triple-jabbed French citizens as well as doctors and nurses.
Here is the translated text of his announcement and plea for more signatures:
‘Dear friends, Yesterday I went to the National Assembly and the Senate to deliver your signatures against the Vaccine pass. Click on the image below to see a glimpse of the day. I don’t want to stop there. Now it is with the Senate to vote. The more signatures we have on the petition the stronger our voice will be. We can get to 1.5million. Please share and sign the petition on the link below.’
He also released the following video reporting the petition, featuring statements from some of key signatories. You can find the translation of the text below.
Martine Wonner, deputy from Bas-rhin region speaking at the assembly on January 3: ‘This vaccine passport, tool of stigmatisation and apartheid. The French are against it and signified it in a petition that has reached more than 1.2million signatures.’
Rudolphe Bacquet: ‘I am on my way to the Senate to deliver by hand to a Senatrice the petition against the Vaccine pass. Hello Madame, thank you for your time.’
Senatrice: ‘You are welcome, you are courageous, I think that all the French and all opinions must all be represented and it is our role to listen to everyone.’
RB: ‘These are the names of 1.2million French people, these are all the signatures from last Monday, since then there have been more signatures.’
Senatrice: ‘Yes you are right, there are a lot of citizens like yourself and it is difficult to be heard.’
RB enters the building and hands over the petition.
RB: ‘We have passed 1.2million signatures in only 10 days, if you open the document to the first page, there’s a text addressed to our elected representatives asking them solemnly to take into account the interest of their citizens. These people write to me that they are double, triple jabbed so that they are not anti-vax.’
Woman: ‘It goes beyond the division of vax and non vax.’
RB: ‘Exactly, some media tried to reduce this petition to an anti-vax one but this is not it. We attack the Vaccine pass.’
RB addresses a crowd: ‘Hello, thank you (people applaud and thank him). I would like to remind our deputies that they are not only at the service of a political party or general politics. This is not about politics any more today, it is about our imminent future. We are not illegal by refusing to get vaccinated, we are in our legal right to a medical choice and it is this free consent that we absolutely must preserve and defend in front of the National Assembly.’
Addressing Deputy Nicolas DuPont-Aignan: ‘Can I give you a copy and let you give it to whom it may concern?’
Deputy Dupont: ‘Would you allow me to present it when I talk [indistinct].’
RB: ‘Yes of course and I hope that the parliament which is the Senate and the National Assembly will open their eyes to the anti-constitutionality of this new law and the social danger that this new law represents and will stop it and if it’s not the case then it will be to the Constitutional Council to take their responsibility.’
RB then delivers another copy for the chief of the parliamentarians.
