thats not where the protests are happenin
The ones posted about were in Belgium, a country with a high level of cases and land borders with four other countries. There were 8,000 at the protest, largely rabble who protest at anything.
that was a once off,
And what an amazing one-off. I was thinking though about the protest with the amazing speech by Wanda Traczyk-Stawska.
the overeach by government
Some governments are more full on than others, some are more laissez-faire, however so far there's been little overreach, except perhaps in South Africa where at the hight of the first lockdown they banned cigs and booze, in Wales where they roped off the non-food aisle of the supermarkets (for a short time, anyway), and in China where they really did go too far. As they always do. Here in Europe, it's been mild compared to that, and in Poland, very mild compared to even England.
In Belgium (where their government is by and large laissez-faire) they have a particular set of issues and the current restrictions there are not excessive at all.
