In the procession, he first hands his microphone to a demonstrator, the exchange then takes place in peace.

Quickly, another protester apostrophes the first interviewee, urging him not to respond to “shitty journalists”. Paul Larrouturou then tries to calm him down, without success. “You are shitty journalists because you convey good thinking. There are enough of the doxa. For the moment we are calm, but soon we will not remain so” he says again.

“We kill children with this vaccine”

Continuing his interviews in the procession of demonstrators, Paul Larrouturou finally surrounded himself with virulent antivaxes, who did not hesitate to threaten him. “We kill children with this vaccine” launched one of the demonstrators, while others accused him of conveying false information about the vaccination campaign.

The journalist then recalled that 90% of patients currently in intensive care were not vaccinated. Statement to which the group violently replied “it is not true. It is a lie”. The group then got carried away, a protester telling him “you are lucky, you will do that to the yellow vests you will get fucked in the face”, while another assures him that he should “blow his face” .
