Watch as thousands of people around the world demonstrate in the video above.

France

Around 160,000 French people in 150 different places in the country demonstrated against stricter vaccine requirements during the last Saturday in July.

A riot broke out in the capital and the police deployed tear gas and water cannons. 

The protests were directed against a law that makes vaccine passes mandatory for those who, for example, want to visit a restaurant or travel by plane or long-distance train.

Vaccination should also be mandatory for healthcare and care staff, who otherwise have their salary deducted.

Australia

In Sydney, protesters clashed with police as a few thousand marched through an illegal protest through the city in late July.

About 60 people were arrested and 300 have so far been fined.

According to ABC News, protesters may be forced to pay the equivalent of just over SEK 630,000.

The protests were mainly aimed at the city's severe restrictions that have restricted residents since June and do not appear to be lifted for long. 

Malaysia

Hundreds of young Protestants defied the restrictions and gathered in Kuala Lumpur on Saturday, July 31, to demand the resignation of the Prime Minister.  

Protesters angered the government's handling of the pandemic, saying Prime Minister Muhyiddin Yassin had contributed to suffering during the pandemic in his pursuit of power.  

Israel

On July 31, hundreds of people in Tel Aviv protested, among other things, against the vaccination of children between the ages of five and eleven who are at risk and new restrictions.

Among the protesters were signs calling the pandemic a scam and drawing parallels between the vaccination in the country and the Nazis.

In July, the Israeli authorities reintroduced oral protection requirements and vaccine passes are required to visit gyms and restaurants in the country, for example. 

Italy

In total, thousands of Italians have taken part in protests against vaccine passes that have taken place in more than 80 cities - including Rome, Milan and Naples.

The protesters marched for freedom and against the "slavery pass", according to La Stampa.

Some compared Prime Minister Mario Draghi to Hitler and said that the requirement for a vaccine passport belongs in a dictatorship.

Passes will be required in August to, for example, work out in the gym and eat indoors at restaurants.
