The banging of pots and pans is a form of protest known as cacerolazo, which stems from late 20th century resistance in Latin American countries. For instance, in Argentina and Chile, during protests against repressive governments, the singular clanking of a saucepan from one apartment would often grow into a building-wide symphony, descending across the neighborhood as an orchestra of resistance.
COVID-19 is a ruthless creeper, a thief stealing health by stealth across land and mountains, across oceans and islands to fell humans, forcing us to retreat and keep our distance even as we live in an overcrowded world. This means sounds of clapping and clanging are bursting around the world in defiance of panic and fear.
Some folks took to both sounds to express appreciation but in at least one nation that hodgepodge changed from defiance against the virus to jubilation at the unity it brought forth, and led to a potentially disastrous outcome. English Canadians who called them “the casseroles” used this form of collective action when they joined the Quebec students.
Swiss prosecutors say Felipe’s father, the former King Juan Carlos I, allegedly received more than $200 million (Canadian) in kickbacks from Saudi Arabia in 2008. (Imagine if Prime Minister Narendra Modi had harnessed this power to stop anti-Muslim riots.
Mode then proposed that people gather on balconies and rooftops to “salute doctors” for five minutes at 5 p.m. I think each one of us grew up banging on our mother’s pots and pans.
Let the kids dig out your pots and pans themselves, this is half the fun! Louis was super excited about my whisks and ice cream scoop.
I also grabbed a wooden spoon and a plastic measuring cup. Making sure to have a few different materials to bang the pots with: metal, plastic, rubber, and wood.
Louis happily pounded on the pots to make as much noise as he could. He did hit the pots to hear their noise a little, but it wasn’t nearly as bad as I anticipated.
I don’t know whether you’ll be standing on your balcony on Sunday evening banging pots and pans. Maybe you are an ardent follower of whatever WhatsApp tells you, maybe you are a great fan of the Prime Minister, so you have no option but to obey.
This is the president, let us not forget, who Narendra Modi invited to India as a guest for Republic Day. If any other government was in charge, I would suggest that we were being snide, making a protest into a celebration.
Being the sort of nation we are, full of love and blind adoration for our “leaders”, no one is really bothered that there is no plan. Even the WHO declaration of a global pandemic managed to anger Indian medical associations who apparently prefer fake patriotism over science.
While we’re at it, someone needs to take the nonsense spewing out of some government departments and from members of the ruling party and its allies seriously. The Ayush ministry came up with all sorts of advisories about building immunity and using certain formulations, all of which would have been of no help at all against Covid-19.

The national government in Denmark had to abandon a new law that would require a mandatory COVID-19 vaccine after Danish citizens took to the streets to protest by banging on pots and pans against an updated Epidemic Act (PDF) that gave the government an unprecedented amount of power to implement rules and extreme measures to fight against the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) virus pandemic. The new Epidemic Act would replace the temporary amended law (PDF) that was unanimously and quickly passed back on March 12 in response to the pandemic.
At that time, one of the major revisions made involved transferring all the authority from the five regional Epidemic Commissions around the country to the Danish Minister of Health to allow for a quicker response to COVID-19. But this gave a lot of power to the minister of health who is able to “access a person’s home with the police assistance without prior court order,” and “use police assistance to isolate, examine or treat a person who is infected or believed to be infected with one of the communicable diseases listed in the appendix to the Act,” according to a blog by Anne Roth mar Hermann a professor of the University of Copenhagen.
As the protest was just beginning in Denmark, the New York State Bar Association (NY SBA) approved a resolution (PDF) on Nov. 7, asking the state to consider making a COVID-19 vaccine mandatory for all New Yorkers except those medically exempted “once a scientific consensus emerges that it is safe, effective, and necessary,” but only after voluntary vaccinations failed to illicit a sufficient level of herd immunity to keep the public safe…. With claims of their trials being over 90 percent effective against the CCP virus by Modern and Pfizer, and after an emergency authorization usage is granted by the U.S. Food and Drug Association’s (FDA) for the public, it will be a matter of time before more states and businesses may mandate Americans to get a vaccine.
Fisher says the “public-private business partnerships” between the governments and pharmaceuticals for more than 35 years has been a “powerful lobby for forced vaccination” in the United States and around the world. “That lobby has been putting pressure on U.S. lawmakers to mandate all federally recommended vaccines and eliminate informed consent protections in public health laws,” Fisher says.
“The Draconian COVID-19 vaccination law enacted in Denmark last spring that threatened to imprison people for refusing to comply is a warning of what could happen here. Americans must rise up and resist this kind of tyranny in great numbers like the people of Denmark have done this week,” Fisher says.
