A small but significant victory was achieved Wednesday when the French Senate voted against a socialist senator’s proposal to make the COVID experimental vaccine mandatory for all citizens living in France. Non-compliance would trigger a fine of 135 euro (about $150 USD), and 1,500 euro for re-offenders.

 

The rejection of the draft law presented by Senator Patrick Kanner together with several dozen other socialist members of France’s upper chamber did not come as a complete surprise. One week earlier, the Senate’s social affairs commission had refused to adopt the proposition.

 

But Wednesday’s public vote, with 80 percent against making the injection compulsory for as many age groups as France’s Higher Health Authority would deem convenient, was a slap in the face to those who are already coercing people into getting the jab in order to enjoy the ordinary freedoms of life or to keep their jobs.

 

Only 64 senators voted for the bill and 262 voted against.
