Anti-lockdown protesters march on streets of Glasgow

The Independent published this video item, entitled “Anti-lockdown protesters march on streets of Glasgow” – below is their description.

Anti-lockdown protesters took to the streets of Glasgow on Saturday (8 January) to demonstrate against vaccine passports.

Crowds gathered in Scotland’s largest city for an “unplanned” march, with many carrying signs and banners with messages against restrictions.

“Freedom over fear”, “stand up, take your freedom back” and “my body, my choice” slogans were amongst those visible.

In order to attend some events in Scotland, people are required to either show a negative lateral flow test or confirm they have been vaccinated using the passport.

In This Story: Vaccine Passports

The concept of vaccine passports was established following the development of vaccinations for Covid-19, in several jurisdictions. While the schemes differ in precise implementations across the globe, those which do operate focus on identifying vaccinated individuals in order to allow them fewer restrictions, for example travel or access to enclosed spaces.

These schemes are somewhat controversial, as a minority view them as restricting freedoms; or an expression of “nanny state” or big state interference in ordinary lives. Others, those who are against vaccination, feel they are too forceful a pressure upon people to become vaccinated.

Where vaccine passports come up in news content featured in The Global Herald, that content is listed below, with the most recently posted item, listed nearest the top.
