Gov Locks The Unvaccinated Out Of Christmas, Thousands Bum Rush Christmas Market
Posted on December 6,2021
Protests turned raucous on Saturday against Luxembourg's government efforts to drive disease-protecting vaccines as demonstrators tried to push into a Christmas market site without being screened for their infection risk. Over 2,000 people demonstrated against the government's increasing measures limiting social life for the unvaccinated, with marchers carrying their message through the capital's city center, police said. Some knocked down barriers around Place de la Constitution – site of the Gëlle Fra, or Golden Lady, monument – to bypass mandatory checks, according to Luxemburger Wort reporters at the scene. The so-called CovidCheck regime tracks whether people have been vaccinated, recovered from Covid-19, or proved negative for virus infection in a recent test.
