Saturday nearly 250,000 demonstrators against the health pass are expected in France.

A constantly increasing number, weekend after weekend.

Even if no incident has been deplored so far, the police still fear this mobilization.  

The anti-sanitary pass met again in the street this Saturday.

Nearly 200 gatherings are planned throughout France.

And for this fifth consecutive weekend of mobilization, the police expect to see a little more people than last week: the Ministry of the Interior is counting on a global movement that could reach 250,000 demonstrators in all the countries.

Against 237,000 last week.

In Paris, three gatherings are organized.

But there is a clear divide between the two main ones.

On the one hand, the one organized by Florian Philippot, president of the Patriots.

On the other, a call to protest launched by yellow vests who refuse to march alongside the extreme right.

Stronger protests in the south of France

The movement is also very followed in the south where the upsurge of the coronavirus and its consequences were most felt in this summer period.

The authorities will be particularly attentive in Toulon for example.

More than 10,000 demonstrators are expected there.

So far, the parades have taken place peacefully and without confrontation with the police.

This could explain the increase in the number of manifestations week after week.

The authorities still fear that some extremist and violent activists will join the processions.
