Date:7 December 2022
Governments globally have riden roughshod over citizens human rights in the name of covid during the past 3 years. So, when a new paper published in The Lancet discussing covid and human rights crossed our desks, we hoped it might provide an acknowledgement of the harms caused by the covid response. No such luck. The nature of the paper soon became apparent as reference to the integration of human rights embedded in a new pandemic treaty emerged. It was no surprise to find the lead author works for the World Health Organization (WHO).
It’s imperative that we all continue working towards building the parallel systems of healthcare, education, food systems etc to create the new future that caretakes people and planet.
We’ve got plenty of covid news for you to catch up on this week, so sit back, relax and dive in!
Pushbacks & positives!
- As part of a press conference for the families of people who’ve died post-covid jab and been affected by jab mandates, Japanese oncologist, Dr Masanori Fukushima from Kyoto University, has spoken out about the harms of covid jabs. In an impassioned speech he said “You are ignoring science!” and “…natural immunity has been suppressed”
- US Senator, Ron Johnson, led a multi-disiplinary roundtable discussion this week on covid genetic ‘vaccines’
– What They Are, How They Work, and Possible Causes of Injuries. The gathering of experts has been convened to shed light on the current state of knowledge surrounding the jabs and the path forward. Josh Mitteldorf summarises proceedings on his Substack
- Dr Angus Dalgleish, Professor of Oncology, has written a letter to Dr Kamran Abassi, Editor in Chief of The BMJ calling for a halt to covid jab programmes and open debate around the huge increase in the number of people experiencing a resurgence in previously stable cancer following covid boosters
- Twitter is no longer enforcing its covid misleading information policy. It is also in the process of reinstating the accounts of users who have been banned in the past couple of years as long as they haven’t broken any laws with their content, however reports suggest the reinstatement will not be that easy as the European Commission has apparently vetoed it
- Free speech video sharing platform, Rumble, and its sister platform Locals are suing the New York Attorney General to challenge a law designed to censor free speech on social media platforms
- In a decision that may signify the end of a 15-month saga for Greek health workers who have been suspended without pay since last September due to their choice not to be covid jabbed, Greece’s Council of State has ruled that the continued vaccine mandate for healthcare workers in Greece is unconstitutional. The ruling leaves the door open for workers who were suspended to potentially return to their jobs
- A new medical centre dedicated to helping people who’ve been injured by covid injections has opened its doors in Lucca, Italy
- Two Australian citizens have won their case challenging the imposition of fines for breaching covid regulations. The ruling could see thousands of other unpaid penalty notices withdrawn
- Authorities in the Chinese cities of Guangzhou and Chongqing are reportedly relaxing tough coronavirus restrictions after protests against the ongoing lockdowns and other curtailments of citizens freedoms. Since the announcement, Chinese authorities have scrapped the most severe covid restrictions, including forcing people into quarantine camps if they test positive. Chinese citizens will no longer need to show negative tests to enter most venues, will be allowed to travel more freely and be able to isolate at home if needed following the mass protests
- A group of US Senators, led by Senator Rand Paul, are calling for an end to covid jab mandates for military personnel. A group of 21 governors also sent a letter to congressional leaders saying they will block the annual reauthorisation of defence spending unless the mandate is dropped and all those who’ve been dismissed are reinstated. A version of the defence bill has now been proposed that doesn’t include jab mandates, but it doesn’t tackle the reinstatement of those dismissed and could still be vetoed by the President
- A heated legal battle in New Zealand has ensued over the right of parents to choose unvaccinated blood for their baby who needs heart surgery. Baby Will’s parents had organised donors but their request had been refused by medics. The authorities sought guardianship of Baby Will, and were granted temporary guardianship, in order to allow medics operate on him and provide whatever blood they wish. However, it was not without extreme duress and trauma as Baby Will was removed from his parents by police and a nurse just before midnight to undergo surgery 8 hours later. His mother, threatened with arrest, was eventually allowed to join him with his twin, but only allowed to remain if she stayed awake and complied with stringent conditions. His father has not been allowed to attend
- Protesting against the introduction of covid jab mandates for military personnel, led US Army Lieutenant Colonel, Bradley Miller, to take a stand by resigning from his post just months before he was due to qualify for his pension
- Following protests, Western University in the US, has made an about face and dropped ongoing covid jab mandates for staff, students and visitors to campus
- A recent preprint study that found jab mandates imposed by universities in the USA cause more harm that good has now been published in The BMJ. The research team estimates that between 22,000-30,000 previously uninfected, people need to be jabbed in order to prevent a single covid hospitalisation and booster mandates increase the risk of individuals being harmed by the jabs. The paper sets out five ethical arguments against the use of covid jab mandates by higher education institutions
- Jab free people who’ve had covid develop long-term natural immunity, according to a Dutch study published in the International Journal of Infectious Diseases
- Australian Senator, Gerard Rennick, has spoken out about excess deaths and vaccine injuries in a passionate speech in Parliament, in an attempt to get fellow parliamentarians to hear people’s concerns and understand the problems associated with covid jabs.
- One of the world’s leading proponents of the lab leak theory, J J Couey, founder of DRASTIC, has made a sharp about turn and renounced the theory in a process he describes as being ‘scooby doo’d’ (misled). He now believes the lab leak theory was down to controlled opposition and was a complete fraud.
- Politicians in the Canadian province of British Columbia have approved a swinging piece of legislation that could see doctors face serious repercussions if they’re found to be spreading what’s considered to be medical ‘misinformation’. Bill 36 gives medical authorities the power to jail, fine and suspend doctors found guilty of sharing anything defined as false or misleading information, as well as being able to force them to be ‘vaccinated’ against their will in order to continue to practice.
- Information obtained by a Freedom of Information request by the UK Medical Freedom Association (UKMFA), combined with revelations contained in ex UK Health Secretary, Matt Hancock’s diaries, reveals the decision to impose mask wearing on children in England was a purely political decision made after the Scottish Parliament imposed mask wearing on children. The decision did not involve proper scientific evaluation of appropriate science until at least 17 months following the initial edict.
- Dr Peter Gøtzsche and Maryanne Demasi have published a preprint systematic review of papers discussing serious adverse reactions following covid jabs. They conclude that the harms from serious adverse reactions to the injections have been routinely ignored or downplayed and sometimes deliberately excluded from studies published in high impact medical journals by the study sponsors. They note that there’s been a failure by the authorities to consider the risks vs benefits of the jabs in low-risk groups such as children or those with natural immunity
- Covid vaccine adverse reactions are being caused by anti-vaxxers. That’s the hypothesis of a new junk paper published in Biomedicine (Taipei). Rebekah Barnett has the full details on her Substack of this extraordinary paper from an author with an extremely dubious pedigree
- Immunologist, Sir John Bell, told the UK Parliamentary Science and Technology Committee and Health and Social Care Committee that covid boosters aren’t providing adequate protection against covid and expressed his concern about the levels of myocarditis being experienced, particularly by young men, following covid injections
- Pfizer CEO Dr. Albert Bourla was rebuked by a panel convened by the UK Prescription Medicines Code of Practice Authority (PMCPA) for misleading the public on the benefits of its covid jab for children. The rap on the knuckles comes following a complaint made by campaign group Us for Them
- Covid-19 deaths are rare in children, occurring mainly in children with underlying health conditions, according to a new study published in PLOS Medicine. Despite the conclusions of the study, Pfizer has announced its application for emergency use authorisation (EUA) of its Omicron bivalent covid jab for use in children aged 6 months to 4 years. The UK’s Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) has given its approval to the jab. The final decision on its use in this age group now lies with the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI). In the US, it’s taken the Food & Drug Administration (FDA) just a few days to authorise use of the Pfizer omicron shots for children aged 6 months to 5 years
- The MHRA has received 474,018 Yellow Card reports of adverse reactions following covid jabs up to 22 November 2022. A vast 57,919 reports have been received following booster jabs. A total of 2,362 deaths following covid jabs have been reported. The vast majority of reactions reported related to neurological issues, followed by gastrointestinal and skin disorders. The MHRA reports dismiss concerns related to pregnancy issues, yet 830 miscarriages have been reported. Also, 4,548 yellow card reports have been made in regard to problems experienced by children following injection. The MHRA continues to minimise any issues with the statement that covid ‘vaccines’ are the best way to protect individuals and have saved many thousands of lives
- Denis Rancourt shares a report bringing together data linking India’s explosion in deaths between April and July 2021 with the rollout of covid jabs
- The death of a 14-year-old Irish boy following a covid jab has been dubbed to be of significant public concern by the coroner investigating his death
- Three sudden deaths following covid injections have been deemed to be due to an autoimmune reaction resulting in inflammation of the heart, with another two possibly due to the injections. Details of the autopsies of those who died are published in a case study in Clinical Research in Cardiology.
- Giving evidence as part of a lawsuit alleging White House interference in social media censorship of covid information, Anthony Fauci is reported to have had difficulty in recalling key events related to the coronavirus crisis
- A new Technical Report on covid from the UK Government warns there will be a “…prolonged period of excess deaths” in the aftermath of the pandemic due to the restrictions placed on healthcare services, which has supposedly resulted in illnesses such as cancer not being picked up early enough. Drs Heneghan and Jefferson take a deeper dive into the Report, which they’ve dubbed a whitewash, on their Substack
- UK organisations questioning the evidence used to shore up covid narratives, have pushed back against an article published in The BMJ containing insinuations aimed at undermining their credibility as they seek to contribute to the current UK covid public enquiry. Responding to the criticisms, the UK Medical Freedom Association (UKMFA) has published an open letter. HART have also responded as a Rapid Response to the article along with a response from Dr Clare Craig, Co-Chair of HART
- Employees of the US Centres for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) struggled to get a paper published in 2021 because it revealed covid jabs don’t prevent the spread of covid. The news was revealed following the release of documents in response to Freedom of Information lawsuits filed by the Informed Consent Action Network (ICAN) team
- A Mid Western Doctor discusses the mechanisms behind the development of fibrous blood clots following covid injection after the release of the film ‘Died Suddenly’, which focuses on the clots
- The UK government has added a ‘spy’ clause to its Online Safety Bill to allow it to demand data from encryted apps such as Telegram and What’sApp under the guise of protecting children. Reclaim the Net reports that the FBI is pushing for similar powers to access encrypted data in the US
- In a bid to force Nigerian citizens to use digital banking systems and currency, the government has instructed banks to impose a daily limit on the amount of cash that can be withdrawn from bank accounts. Individuals and businesses will be limited to a maximum withdrawal of $45 per day and $225 per week. Anyone attempting to withdraw higher amounts will be hit with a service fee.
