The main reason for their outrage was the digital vaccine “passport”. Denmark, like other European countries, wants to introduce a digital CVID-19 vaccination certificate for travel.

It can be used for sports and cultural events as well as restaurants.

Defendant organizers say this type of passport implies an obligation to vaccinate and imposes further restrictions on the individual’s freedom. Although vaccination is not compulsory in Denmark.

Protesters carry pictures of Prime Minister Mate Frederickson looking like North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un.

The approved rally was peaceful, police were also deployed.
