TOKYO: Demonstrators, most of which were unmasked women and their children, took to the streets in the ritzy Ginza district central Tokyo against the government health passport project, which requires people to furnish proof of COVID-19 vaccination or a negative test.
Protestors also denounced the wearing of masks and PCR tests.
The measures faced criticism from vaccine skeptics who see it as a threat to civil liberties.
More importantly, they called against vaccinations being administered to children, claiming that it will “change their DNA structure,” and that the “Vaccine Passport is a human rights violation.”
While the vaccination process is in progress in Japan, members of the population remained suspicious of vaccines. The protestors claimed that no children have died as a result of the coronavirus infection.
A woman participating at the protests told Arab News Japan that “vaccines are hazardous because it is still in the middle of a clinical trial. Further, it is a genetically modified vaccine.”
