With no Covid Pass, my wife and I are banished from society.
We have no income.Banned from most shopping.Can barely exist.
But we will not accept authoritarianism.
Here's how life looks after one month in Lithuania,under Europe's first strict,society-wide Covid Pass regime:
My wife and I have been suspended without pay for 4 weeks.
We can't return to our jobs.
Not sure our employers would let us back.
Even if they did, our colleagues despise us, wish on social media for our death. Nothing we can do will ever erase that. We can't work there.
We can't find new jobs in our professions.
My wife and I have very different jobs in very different fields. But all jobs in both our fields now require the Covid Pass.
No Pass, no job.

My country of Lithuania has imposed very severe measures against people who do not have a Covid Pass.
• You're banned from large supermarkets.
• Banned from non-essential stores.
• Banned from restaurants.
And a lot more.
Here's what has happened:
Lithuania is a small EU country of 2.8 million people.
Lithuania introduced a Covid Pass in May. It's called the Opportunity Pass.
The Opportunity Pass allows you the opportunity to participate in society.
Without the Opportunity Pass, you don't have opportunity: your rights are restricted.
