The 9th round of protests against coronavirus health passes come amid a return of students to schools across France following their summer vacations.
Watch a live broadcast from Paris, where on Saturday, 11 September, people have gathered to protest for the 9th consecutive week against health passes and mandatory COVID vaccination for some groups.
A demonstration against mandatory COVID-19 passes in the French capital has been getting violent as protesters have started throwing bottles and firecrackers at police officers, a Sputnik correspondent reported.

The demonstration comes as students have returned to schools across the country after the summer break. Earlier, French President Emmanuel Macron addressed teenagers aged 12 and older to encourage them to get vaccinated against COVID-19. Students can even get the jab at school.
In accordance with the rules introduced after 21 July, people in France must show proof of vaccination, a negative test, or a recent recovery from COVID-19 to visit cultural venues and sports events.
