    Italian deputies from the Brothers of Italy party disrupted the session on Thursday, July 29 reported the daily La Repubblica.

    As the lower house of parliament was to vote on a proposed clause for the decree on the new Covid measures, several deputies raised signs saying “No Green Pass”. As a result, the session was postponed. In turn, the deputies of the Democratic Party responded with cries of “Shame!”. Shortly after, members had to be called to order.

    It was on July 22 that the Italian government decided to impose a health pass to enter bars and restaurants, swimming pools and sports halls, museums, cinemas, theaters and game rooms. The measure, which will take effect from August 6, will also apply to large gatherings in Italy. A fine of between 400 to 1000 euros will be issued for violation of the law.

    As in France, there is another concern linked to the health pass. Due to the fact that it is based on a model adopted in the European Union, Italian citizens and foreigners vaccinated with vaccines not recognized in the EU will not be able to obtain it. Of particular concern are many Russians living and working in Italy, as well as all inhabitants of the Republic of San Marino, where the Russian vaccine Sputnik V has been used.

    Meanwhile, thousands of demonstrators, including high-ranking politicians, protested against the Green Pass in Rome again on Wednesday. Lega MEP Antonio Maria Rinaldi said he went to the European Commission on Wednesday to clarify some points related to the Green Passport. “There are many points that have to be viewed critically and are discriminatory.”

    “The Green Pass is terrible both in Italy and in France. It creates two categories of citizens. It is against freedom and represents a system of discrimination. We are fighting against the Green Pass in Italy and France,” commented Florian Philippot, French presidential candidate and leader of the Patriots party. He pointed to fresh headlines saying that “new data suggests that vaccinees can transmit the virus”. A few weeks ago it had been forbidden to say so, he said.

    The demonstrators in Rome carried banners that read “This is not a vaccine. It is a deadly long-term weapon.” The protests against it have been going on for several days.
