Protests have broken out across Europe, as people have taken to the streets opposing the lockdowns and the vaccine passports being implemented in various countries, requiring people to be fully vaccinated to participate in society.
There were protests in Austria, Italy, Belgium, The Netherlands, Denmark, Croatia and Switzerland. For the most part, the protests were peaceful, however some turned violent, particularly in The Netherlands. There were also violent demonstrations in Belgium.
In Vienna, Austria, the protests largely centred on the government requiring everyone to be vaccinated, whether they want to or not, by February 2022. Reports indicated that Germany is also considering similar legislation.
