A Huge Protest In Montreal Took Place Against The Vaccine Passport This Weekend (VIDEOS)

While the vaccine passport came into effect on September 1, several thousand "pro-choice" Quebecers held a protest in Montreal this Sunday, September 5, in the Old Port of Montreal.

"The time for division is over! We are in a democratic country so we are supposed to have the right to choose, to say no, to have the free choice to accept or not a medical treatment! The government is using fear and threats to get people to take the shot and now they are imposing a vaccine passport! They force children to be masked in class, while parents sit on the terrace it's okay! It's inconsistent and above all unacceptable," the description of the Facebook event read.

Protestors met at 1 p.m. on Place Jacques-Cartier.

In total, 12.4k people responded to the Facebook event, 4.4k people indicated that they would participate and 8,000 people noted that they were interested.

Note that several mobilization groups from all over Quebec are participating, including those of Terrebonne, Sherbrooke, Coaticook, Mont-Laurier, Magog and Shawinigan.

The event was organized by the Facebook group Québec Pro Choix, which had 8.8k members at the time of writing.
