It’s definitely now clear that leaving America out of the first wave of QR code vaxx enforcement was part of the plan. They are planning to lock down Europe while Americans think the whole thing is winding down.
So is Greece.
Thousands took the streets in two of Greece’s largest cities to protest new health mandates – which bar the unvaccinated from many public spaces and require medical staff to take the shot – as well as plans to immunize teenagers.
Large crowds of demonstrators were seen in Athens and Thessaloniki on Wednesday, numbered in the thousands according to the Associated Press, some reportedly chanting “Hands off our kids!” while others hoisted banners reading “We say no to vaccine poison.”

The protests come on the heels of several new pandemic measures, one of which effectively closes all indoor public places to the unvaccinated, including bars, restaurants, theaters and other entertainment venues. The policy takes effect on Friday and will remain at least until the end of August, part of an effort to curb transmission at crowded bars and clubs, which the government has blamed for a recent surge in cases.
“After a year and a half, no one can claim ignorance about the coronavirus anymore,” Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis said earlier this week. “The country will not shut down again due to attitudes adopted by certain people … It’s not Greece that’s a danger, but unvaccinated Greeks.”
We stand with our brothers in Greece who are against compulsory vaccines and Vaccine passports.
Are you waking up people to what is happening.
You wont see this on the news.

Massive protests all over Greece today after the prime minister issued what is essentially medical apartheid. The media is trying to spin it as an “anti vaccine” protest instead of what it’s really about : freedom of choice and bodily autonomy. https://t.co/tR2SoRlOc6

Nursing home staff will also be required to be vaccinated starting on August 16, facing suspension without pay if they fail to take the shot. A similar rule will come into force in September for workers at all public and private hospitals. Clinics that flout the new restriction could be slapped with a 50,000-euro fine.
In another controversial move set to begin on Thursday, the government will also allow teens as young as 15 to receive the coronavirus vaccine with the consent of a parent or guardian.
Despite their size and energy, Wednesday’s protests appeared to remain peaceful. While helmeted riot police were seen in some images, the law enforcement presence was not apparent in much of the footage circulating online. No clashes were reported.
It looks fantastic.

It feels so encouraging to finally have tens of thousands – or hundreds of thousands – of people out on the streets standing up against this hoax.
I’ve been calling for this since March of 2020, and it’s finally happening.
The UK has been doing large protests for a while now.
With France and Greece now on board, this is going to have to reach some kind of a head.
Surely, the world government isn’t going to back down. But at least everyone will know where everyone stands.
People who are chanting “we say no to your poison” are not going to get vaxxed out of convenience.
