Al Jazeera English published this video item, entitled “Hundreds rally against compulsory vaccinations in France’s Guadeloupe” – below is their description.

France’s minister for overseas territories is visiting the French Caribbean island of Guadeloupe – where he has insisted that compulsory vaccinations for health workers will happen eventually.

Hundreds of them rallied against the government’s plans on Sunday.

But protests have morphed into a larger movement against high poverty levels.

To placate them, Paris now says it is open to discussing more autonomy for Guadeloupe.

Al Jazeera’s Natacha Butler has more from Guadeloupe.
