Update On Our Situation

 After 2 days of protesting and an urgent Parliamentary debate, the rule has been changed so that apparently, one will still be able to sit on a terrace with a cup of tea or dinner without a code.

There were riots in The Hague and even a demo in our town, of the people who call themselves "resistance".

Common sense won! Proud of my country right now. We still have democracy left, unlike some of our neighbours, when they protest week after week and nothing changes.

Of course, it's not the end, and vigilance is needed to protect our rights in future. Medical decisions are a private matter and should never be the grounds of discrimination. Talk to your doctor and do what's right for you, don't judge others if they choose differently, and that goes for both sides of this debate. 

P.S. I should add that yes, it's bad enough that so-called corona pass was installed at all, but it's the 1st time they announced a rule and then had to change it so quickly, even before it became official, and it only happened because of massive discontent. So it's a victory, however small!
