On Monday the 26th of October, the City of Sydney council joined the City of Newcastle and the Blue Mountains City councils in banning the Australian Vaccination-risks Network’s Vaxxed Bus from any council areas.
The motion refers to the bus currently touring the country operated by the Australian Vaccination-risks Network (AVN), touting the bus tour as spreading dangerous misinformation relating to public health. The AVN clearly state on their website, “The Australian Vaccination-Risks Network exists to further a pro-choice position with regard to vaccination and other health decisions. The AVN is NOT anti-vaccination, nor are we pro-vaccination, we are PRO-CHOICE.” It’s easy to see how the proposed motion makes one wonder how competent these councils really are.
Many of the stories on the AVN website are from parents that have vaccinated their children. There are hundreds of interviews with the families of those that have been injured or killed by vaccines. The AVN provides a forum with information so that parents can make an informed decision on whether they choose to vaccinate their children or not. The AVN bus aims to provide a space where those that have been injured or those who have tragically lost loved ones as a result of vaccination can be seen and heard. Many people are unaware that they do in fact, have a choice when it comes to vaccination.
Scott Morrison previously announced that the COVID-19 vaccine would be made mandatory when it becomes available. After severe backlash from the Australian public, he back tracked and stated that it would be as “mandatory as possible”. We can confidently assume what this means. They will not force someone to take the vaccine, but they will make it very difficult to function in society without it. It has already been advised that international travel, government benefits, restriction of employment opportunities and potential refusal of service in certain establishments will be linked to a vaccine certificate of sorts. Interestingly, the “No Jab, No Play/Pay” policy was introduced into childcare by Mr Scott Morrison himself in 2015, a fact that he is rather proud of.
Will our children be able to go to childcare or school? Will we be able to work for certain employers? Will we be able to enter certain businesses? Will we be able to attend large concerts and sporting events? Will we be able to travel overseas? These are the liberties that the government are trying to remove if we choose not to accept the Covid-19 rushed-to-market vaccine, which has skipped the vital animal testing phase and will have no long-term safety studies completed at the time the first shots are being administered in Australia, which is penned for January and February of 2021.
Injury and death are all too common when it comes to vaccines. The National Childhood Vaccination Injury Compensation Program (NCVICP) in the US has paid out over $4 billion since its inception in the late 1980s. Furthermore, the Morrison government recently announced that is has granted indemnity to the two suppliers of the Covid-19 vaccine, the Oxford/AstraZeneca vaccine, and the University of Queensland vaccine being marketed by Seqirus (CSL), rejecting calls to set up an injury compensation scheme here in Australia.
This means that vaccine manufactures cannot be held liable for adverse events caused by the vaccines, which experts say are “inevitable” when the vaccine becomes available.
The Oxford/AstraZeneca vaccine trials were suspended globally in September due to a severe adverse reaction in one of its participants. The adverse reaction was transverse myelitis, which is inflammation of the spinal cord, and results in pain, muscle weakness, paralysis, sensory problems, and bowel and bladder dysfunction. Only one-third of people have a full or near-full recovery, with the seriously affected suffering permanent impairments that impact their ability to perform ordinary tasks of daily living. The vaccine trail has shockingly recorded its first death, with a 28-year-old physician losing his life in the Brazilian arm of the trials.
The Australian Vaccination-risks Network states, “the proposal to censor the voices of Australians who have been adversely affected by a government-recommended medication is unconstitutional and immoral. The motion is discriminating against an entire section of the population who have been adversely affected by vaccines. They are not anti-vaccine because they have already been vaccinated – they have suffered from the government and medical advice and now, they are being further injured by these efforts to suppress their freedom of political speech.”
Where there is risk, there must be choice, and there must always be informed consent.
It is time to stand up to our governments, for our rights and our freedoms, and for the rights and freedoms of our children.
