The NWO Marches On: Macron launches digital ID in France
The NWO Marches On: Macron launches digital ID in FranceFollow @KnightsTempOrg
Less than a week after French President Emmanuel Macron was re-elected, he signed the “Digital Identity Guarantee Service” (SGIN) into a decree on April 26, less than 48 hours after his victory over Marine Le Pen in the French presidential election.
The SGIN is a project by the French government to create a mobile app that will allow French citizens to access their ID digitally.
The project aims at making France “compliant” with the European Union Commission’s European Digital Identity package.
Though the text of the decree specifies that the use of digital ID “is completely left to the free choice of users,” some politicians see it as a tool to usher in a Chinese-like social credit system in France.
Concerns that digital tools such as the SGIN will be used by western governments to introduce a social credit system through the backdoor have also been expressed in other EU countries, including Italy, where a newly released app, the “Smart Citizen Wallet,” will be launched in Bologna this fall and will reward some citizens for “virtuous behavior” using a point system.
The re-election of Macron last Sunday triggered massive protests throughout France, and during his first official post re-election visit, he was pelted with tomatoes in the town of Cergy near Paris.
Voters are expected at the polls again for French parliamentary elections in June.
