No Vax protester banned from marching in Milan.
Milan’s ‘No Vax’ protests against covid-19 vaccinations reduced by city questore or the police commissioner Giuseppe Petronzi, reports the Italian news agency ANSA.
Anti-vaccines have been banned from parade at future events which are to take the form of a “static” assembly at the Arco della Pace in Piazza Sempione.
The No Vax events have been held in Milan every Saturday since July 24, the next event scheduled for September 18 will be held under the new rules.
Security chiefs made the decision because of 16 “de facto promoters” of the protests encouraging participants to follow them on “improvised routes”, with all gatherings being held without notice to authorities, according to ANSA.
The measures were announced the same day the Italian government approved sweeping restrictions requiring all workers in Italy to have the Green Pass, a certificate proving people have been vaccinated, tested negative or cured of covid-19.
Protests against the Green Pass have been taking place in Italy in recent months, although they have started to fade as the summer wears on.
However, news of the latest restrictions is expected to revive Italy’s No Vax and No Green Pass movements in the weeks leading up to October 15, when the new rules go into effect.
Details on the Green Pass can be found – in Italian – on the Certificazione Verde website while for official information on the covid-19 situation in Italy – in English – see the Ministry of Health website.
