You should see London, your Germans friends would die from a heart attack.

Anyway, there is a study saying surgical masks are pretty useless and this is what people wear in 90% of cases.

Rest of the UK has fewer wearers still. I wonder when the rest of Europe will realise we are in the endemic stage (or at least end stage pandemic for the stragglers like Switzerland) and this is as good as it will get.

This clip suffers from what plagues clips in general:
you don't see what happened before.

People don't get beaten up just for refusing to wear a mask, or chased by 10+ police for essentially nothing. The fact that she slaps one (one's helmet) at :41 may be a hint. However if she really got beaten up for nothing it would be stupid to hide what led to the chase - unless it invalidates its narrative.

In the very first moments you see one or two firefighters ("pompier" on the back, in bright red overalls). What are they doing at a protest, or in a mall?

Actually, the Swiss will stare whether you wear a mask or not.
Oh great... so leaving Japan (where everyone stares constantly at foreigners) for the exact same... well at least the local folks will stare at my wife as well, and I wouldn't want her to feel left out.

We just had visit from Germany a few Weeks ago and they were shocked - you can see people without Masks in Shopping Malls, Elevator, Shops, ect. Not once did a Shop Owner said anything.
That's me, a week and a half mask free now! No one cares, one person at a supermarket asked where my mask was and I just said I didn't need to wear one. So liberating!!

Have recently been noticing more people on public transport who are choosing not to wear masks( to hell with maskenpflicht and common sense) Was on a bus today, when a guy boards without wearing a mask. I happened to be looking at him and he then proceeded to stand at a spot behind my seat (the luggage/wheelchair area) and started to mutter to himself. I turned to look and he kept muttering and at the next stop banged his fist against my seat, said something about me being a fascist and mask whatever and a few things I didn’t understand. I got up and moved to another seat in front and he got off at the next stop. Neither the driver nor any of the passengers reacted to him although I did hear chatter once he got off. What is the point of advertising compulsory masks when people like this are allowed to get away without. Not to mention the aggression!
You were not abused "for wearing a mask", you were abused for staring, likely in a challenging or disapproving way, at a mentally unstable guy. Don't stare like that at random strangers, especially men who get on trams without masks, because there is a high chance those kinds of people are not going to be right in the head.

It's not fair, it's not right, but in the end you also sometimes have to be a realist instead of just an idealist, and put your personal comfort and safety first. I have not yet seen an anti-masker on public transport that was not looking for an argument, because that is why they do it, to challenge the laws and make their 'point'.

Well since masks aren't mandatory now in UK in public places that's not really a surprise. Some shops ask you to wear them but it's still not compulsory.

Fully agree, lack of context, but hey if this was a movie with intro you would say all was staged.

Anyway, this is not normal in a western civilization

Not what happened though. She wasn't beaten for trying to shop without a vaccine passport.

She ended up getting beaten because she was part of a demonstration against not being permitted into malls without a vaccine passport, and when they tried to arrest her for contravening the law, she resisted.

You can argue whether the force used was proportionate, but the narrative of the video is wrong. She wasn't trying to shop.

When even the French hating Express get most of the facts right, you have to consider whether your sources are reliable.

Often in situations like this bystanders donít start filming until things have already escalated . The run up to that is thus often open to speculation

Deadly serious, there was never a need for masks and I'm not going to play along anymore. From looking around, an ever growing number of Swiss feel the same way!
