The funeral ceremony for Nobel Prize winner Luc Montagnier took place at the Père Lachaise cemetery in Paris on February 22. French politician Yves Pozzo di Borgo posted a video of the mourning event on his Twitter page.
Thousands of French people came to the Père-Lachaise cemetery at 3 p.m. on Tuesday to bid farewell to the eminent scientist. The area in front of the crematorium was fenced off and those who came to pay their respects were seated along its perimeter.
Some of the French held a placard that read: “Thank you for everything, Professor Luc Montagnier. Rest in peace.”
At one point, the crowd began to chant, “Thank you Montagnier.” And when Professor Christian Perrone, a significant figure of resistance to the COVID-19 vaccination policy, arrived at the mourning ceremony, the slogans of the chanting changed to “Freedom! Freedom!”
The mourning ceremony was ignored by virtually all the official French media, although the news portal France Soir had published information about the place and time of the funeral four days earlier.
“Many people at Luc Montagnier’s funeral. A tribute from the French population, who are grateful for his intellectual honesty and integrity as a researcher until the very last days of his life,” Xavier Azalbert, owner of France Soir, posted a post on his Twitter page.
Yves Pozzo di Borgo, French senator from 2004 to 2017, also expressed his indignation at the lack of an official state ceremony to honor the great scientist, “Many people at Professor Luc Montagnier’s funeral ceremony at Père Lachaise! No national tribute to someone who will one day be in the Pantheon in Paris.”
“Thank you, Professor. The state has forgotten you, the French have not,” Carlo Alberto Brusa, a nationally known lawyer fighting compulsory vaccination, wrote on Twitter.
Professor Luc Montagnier (1932-2022), who won the Nobel Prize in medicine in 2008 for his work in discovering the AIDS virus in 1983, died at the age of 89 on February 8 in the American Hospital in Paris.
Professor Montagnier was one of the first to question the official theory of SARS-Cov-2, claiming an artificial origin of the coronavirus. Over the past two years, he has spoken repeatedly to the public, specifically warning about the dangers of mRNA-based vaccines and adenoviruses.
