The Linkspopulist Jean-Luc Mélenchon also criticized the health pass and warned against a "society of permanent control". At the same time, Mélenchon called up his followers to pay attention to the choice of words when they reject measures. Comparisons with dictatorships or the Holocaust are not appropriate.
