The Italian Chamber of Deputies, the lower house of the bicameral Parliament of Italy, went into absolute mayhem when members held up protest signs that read “no green pass” to protest the domestic vaccine passport.

Some members of the Fratelli d’Italia (Brothers of Italy) party, opposed to the provision, displayed protest signs that said “no green pass” showing their disapproval of the Italian coronavirus passport. One member of parliament was chased through the chamber by security as he held the sign above his head, before he was pursued out of the chamber.

The Green Pass will be Italy’s domestic digital or paper COVID-19 certificate that will indicate if a person has received at least one vaccination, tested negative within 48 hours, or has recently recovered from the virus. The pass will be an extension of the European Union’s COVID-19 Digital Certificate, which was implemented July 1.

 

Tourists entering Italy will also be required to obtain a green pass. Based on the new regulations that were unveiled on July 22, visitors will also be subject to the same requirements when it comes to attending public places. According to the National Tourism Agency of Italy, starting August 6, everyone over the age of 12 must present the Green Pass in order to be allowed access to certain activities and services.

National File previously reported Italy’s massive protest, as unvaccinated Italian citizens were placed on severe movement restrictions, barring entrance into stadiums, museums, theaters, cinemas, exhibition centers, swimming pools, and gyms unless they can provide government-approved paperwork allowing their entry.
