Petition to stop the Vax Mandates

All anybody wants is free choice about what they get injected with.  Two days to go. Send it to your friends.

Let the Nurses, Doctors, Truck Drivers, Teachers and everyone who wants to work or travel be free to choose.

Australian Parliament Petition EN3886 – Cessation of vaccine mandates

The recent US Supreme Court decision to block vaccine mandates noted that Biden’s vaccine mandate was no ‘everyday exercise of federal power’ but rather ‘a significant encroachment on the lives – and health – of a vast number of employees.’ Vaccine mandates in Australia have proven futile to stop the spread of coronavirus in this country as the vaccines themselves do not prevent an individual from catching COVID-19. Furthermore, the denial of work to unvaccinated Australians is contrary to the right to work as per the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights as well as the Human Rights Act 2004 (Cth). We note as well that the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine safety data sheet notes no full list of ingredients, no Toxicity report, no effect on endocrine glands and is merely provided in good faith, not science, without warranty of any kind. We note the long-term effects of this product are unknown and sincerely believe that this product should be taken by an individual without threat, deception or coercion (i.e. the right to bodily autonomy).

We therefore ask the House to immediately cease all vaccine mandates in Australia as they are contrary to both Commonwealth legislation as well as international legislation; despite the Public Health Amendment Bill 2021 (ACT) (and other bills) to undermine these laws. We request the immediate return of all unvaccinated Australians to work to allow them to support both themselves and their families as well as to support the restoration of the Australian economy post COVID-19 lockdown.

    As I pointed out yesterday, many Australians are unaware of the extent that mandates still apply such as compulsory vaccination to be an employer or employee, to visit public events or places, and in Vicdanistan to have a haircut or visit a beauty parlour.

    And worst of all, mon-vaxxed dissidents are not allowed to leave the country. Dissidents should be allowed to leave, Australia should be happy to let them go.

    You need an almost impossible to obtain exemption to leave if not vaxxed. Surely this is a violation of human rights?

    Reference for those that don’t believe me about leaving:

      Dissidents can leave if they are not returning within 3 months. This could be for work or study. It is not an option open for all though.

            You could leave Australia for more than 3 months if you can provide “ a doctor’s certificate to support your claim you are travelling in order to provide care for sick family members”, or “ you are travelling on compelling or compassionate grounds”. I would get supporting documentation as soon as possible, if you want to see your mother. All the best.

      I know an adult child of a friend who is a conscientious objector to the present covid vaccinations and he has two sibling weddings to attend in the United States but he and his family are devastated that he is not allowed to leave.

      It is absolutely no different to living in any other dictatorship. Dissidents are punished. Shouldn’t Australia be happy to get rid of a dissident? After all, he might influence others to have similar “thought crimes”. To prevent that the more benign dictatorships let people leave but the more malevolent ones “disappear” them.

      And it definitely is about punishment of dissidents. The vaccine doesn’t stop you being infected so there can be no argument of the vax preventing you coming back infected. And in any case, we now have “quarantine camps” that dissidents can be locked up in.

    It appears the petition is not available to ‘confirm signature’ from NZ IP addresses (?). Fair enough – I aren’t a voter in Aus.
    I was a frequent holidaymaker in Queensland, until the mandates. I won’t be getting the Wuhan Flu jab, so will now be holidaying in NZ until such time as the ‘vaccine’ mandates are killed. Guess NZ needs my money more than Aus.
    We face a similar situation here – no politicians worth voting for. Only one party leader has come close to showing some forward thinking, but after two years of suppression of the Bill of Rights, it is too little too late. I refuse to vote for more of the same. Turns out like you, our rights were merely whims of politicians. Now we KNOW we are subjects, not just of the Queen but also our MPs, not citizens.

    My wife wrote to Scomo lashing him about the vaccine mandates. His office wrote back saying there are no mandates except in a few targeted high risk industries. I truly had no idea that the bottle shops, deli’s and the railways where my kids work were such high risk. Silly me.

      Not to mention farmers out in the paddocks on their own, people doing fencing in the fresh air well away from others, volunteers in op shops, volunteers in the CFA, SES, etc.
      I’d prefer my hairdresser not to be vaxxed as she stands over me; I don’t want her spike proteins too close to me. So it’s no bother to me to let my hair grow a bit scruffy!
      I’m in Victoriastan, needless to say. 🙁 The mandates seem to be revengeful and deliberately spiteful.

          Possibly a protracted process that would lose in court.

          You should come to the ACT where the government agreed with the arguments in the book on the advice of the human rights commission.

          from the book blurb

          The main argument of this book is that vaccine mandates facilitate the creation of a fundamentally unfair and unequal society where vaccinated people are privileged and the unvaccinated become second-class citizens who are excluded from most activities of normal life and are regarded as lepers in their own country. In this context, this book discusses the concept of legality known as the ‘rule of law’, and the use of emergency powers in Australia.

          basically that is what the green/labor government has applied here.

            Scott Morrison is responsible for National Border policy and Aged Care among other things, and he did nothing at all to stop vaccine mandates.

            The Federal Government pays for every school student yet they apparently could not even say “Teachers should not be force vaxed”?

    The JP Sears video is actually kinda sad. Now, bear with me here. Harari is obviously a pop-academic/not-a serious-scholar, but the dim bulbs at the WEF can’t see that because he is telling them what they want to hear.

    They are not deep thinkers and certainly don’t get philosophical issues, which blinds them to Harari’s bamboozle and wheeze. Hey, look at Chomsky and linguistics. Really didn’t work out.

    They want to believe that somebody understands biology and psychology well enough to make them immortal and make everyone else obey them by making rights conditional on a social credit score.

    There are no real mandates, just life destroying extreme coercion.
    Does that suggest that laws, both national and international actually have some value?
    All this Covid theater has shown is that all politicians are not to be trusted and are real-science ignorant and don’t care anyway.
    Can’t wait for the govt contract with Pfizer to be revealed and it shows the govt knew from day 1 about all the side effects.

    Leonard E. Read, the founder of the Foundation for Economic Education in 1946, used to say that Americans live in a country in which various levels of government extract over 40% of their productivity, yet they call this system freedom.

    “They don’t know the difference between freedom and coercion.”

    Liberty is a philosophy that requires responsibility, accountability, self-reliance, self-discipline and courage. These are the exact virtues the majority of people do not have.

    H. L. Mencken:
    Democracy is a pathetic belief in the collective wisdom of individual ignorance.
    Democracy is the theory that the common people know what they want, and deserve to get it good and hard.

          Unvaccinated people can enter Australia. Just have a different quarantine requirement.

          Vacs requirement for aged care entry is state health directive. But the Fed govt agrees with that.

          So I’m still not sure there are any Fed govt vacs mandates.

              What does that impose on someone that requires them to get vaccinated? Genuine question.

              The state requiring you to be vaccinated for most vocations and many social interactions is a mandate that forces many people to be vaccinated.

              From what I know of the federal govt emergency status is it allows them to have greater biosecurity controls. This doesn’t force anyone to be vaccinated. If you’re unvaccinated you can still cross our international border. There are some extra quarantine protocols but the person gets to do what they aim to do. Very different to the state mandates that actually totally prevent employment and movement.

              A number of commonwealth employees are even exempted from the state employment vaccination mandates.

              I oppose a vaxxed / unvaxxed two teir society and I added my signature to the petition before making any comment. Why did I do that if I don’t think there are Federal mandates forcing people to be vaccinated? Because I want the Feds to have a greater influence on the states on the matter.

      Gee Aye
      Vaxxing to enter aged care facilities???? A complete waste of time, in fact counter productive. The UK Health Security figures and even the NSW ones here show that those jabbed are far MORE likely to get and transmit covid than those who chose to avoid the poison death shots.

      So the best course of action is to actually stop the useless mandates, mandates which actually put people at higher risk of adverse events, myocarditis and you name it. Stop pouring more petrol onto the fire with the “boosters” doing their job (??) and shooting infection rates to the moon .

      End the mandates and end the vaxxes now. There is no logic in jabbing people with something that promotes infection and exposes them to unknown risks (and known ones).

      Time to move on. I have had covid as have a large no of others I know, its not great but I have had worse flus. Time to put our efforts into productive areas rather than getting caught up in continual useless Leftist medical nightmares.

    In the shadow of the Ukraine war, the WHO is preparing – unnoticed by the public – an “international agreement on the prevention and control of pandemics” binding under international law.

    The negotiations in Geneva have already begun. Originally, the “transfer of power” was planned for 1 May 2022, i. e. all 194 member states of the WHO would then be forced to implement the measures decided by the WHO, such as lockdowns or general compulsory vaccination.

    However, a new memorandum from Concilium Europa, dated 3 March 2022, has delayed the process considerably.

    Meanwhile, a working draft of this new WHO “World Government Agreement” is planned to be ready for further internal negotiations on 1 August 2022.

    Everyone should know that by 21 February 2022, the fake-vaccination program had been in place for 1 year. This has resulted in 111,597 adverse health reports and 768 deaths, that is, more that 2 deaths per day – latest report from the Federal Therapeutic Goods Administration at:
    https://apps.tga.gov.au/Prod/daen/daen-entry.aspx

    In spite of this outcome, our Federal and State Governments and the media continue to promote, coerce or mandate “the Jab”. Are they trying to fulfill the World Economic Forum’s ambitions of a world population of only 1 billion people and the genetic alteration of the human DNA ?

    • #

      Incorrect (for the thousandth time). The link you provided says deaths is 12. The 770 is deaths of people following vaccination. You will find that 770 is the number of deaths expected with no vaccination.

      Hard to get your head around isn’t it? Maybe try to understand how data is presented.

      The TGA has identified 11 reports of death that were linked to vaccination from 751 reports received and reviewed.

        For those that are able, go to the TGA web page I stated in #12,choose the four Covid vaccines listed, ie
        COMIRNATY COVID-19 vaccine
        COVID-19 Vaccine (TNS) (active ingredients: COVID-19 Vaccine (Type not specified))
        COVID-19 Vaccine AstraZeneca
        Spikevax COVID-19 vaccine
        click on Search and today’s result states:
        Number of reports (cases): 111935
        Number of cases where death was a reported outcome: 770

        In league with your misinformation, the AusVaxSafety web site fails to mention any deaths whatsoever and states that adverse reactions “are generally mild and short-lived”. This is the false information that our medical profession relies on, consequently doctors, nurses and pharmacists are jabbing patients unaware that the outcome could be death.

        180

        • #

          ugh. That data is deaths occurring in the reporting period after vaccination. It is not deaths caused by vaccination. If you choose 15 million people, how many of those will be dead a month after you choose them?

          The data I showed was the same data as yours with the number who died directly from the vaccine as 11 (not 12 as I stated above).

          116

          • #

            correction 30million since the period is for each dose.

            112

            • #

              That is true Gee Aye. Only some of the 770 deaths after vax will be due to the vax, but there will be many other deaths not even reported after vaccines that were due to the vaccines. What’s the real number? We’ll only be able to estimate it after the five year long term studies are done.
              Since vaccination increases the risk of heart attack and stroke as shown by studies on coronary artery inflammation, and we don’t even know how long that inflammation lasts for, there will be many people who had heart attacks or strokes 3 – 6 months after their last shot, and their rellies will not even wonder if the shot influenced their death.

              But we’re not even trying to find out.

              If the Feds and Greg Hunt were interested in your health they would have set up automatic survey reporting for everyone who was vaxxed — via say SMS prompts or emails or something. They clearly don’t want that data. They would have published it on a public database, anonymized but sorted by age groups.

                Easy decision.

                Definition of a COVID-19 death
                A COVID-19 death is defined for surveillance purposes as a death in a confirmed COVID-19 case, unless there is a clear alternative cause of death that cannot be related to COVID-19 (e.g. trauma). There should be no period of complete recovery from COVID-19 between illness and death.

                Where a Coroner’s report is available, these findings are observed.

                Post COVID-19 condition (also known as long COVID, long-term effects of COVID, chronic COVID) occurs in individuals with a history of probable or confirmed SARS CoV-2 2019 infection, usually three months from the onset of COVID-19 with symptoms and that last for at least two months and cannot be explained by an alternative diagnosis. Where post COVID-19 condition is believed to have led to death this should be recorded on the Medical Certificate of Cause of Death.

                Recording a COVID-19 death on a death certificate
                Information contained on the Medical Certificate of Cause of Death is coded by the Australian Bureau of Statistics using the International Classification of Disease 10th Revision. It is important the completion of the Certificates is accurate, assisting with surveillance of COVID-19 deaths.

                The Australian Bureau of Statistics is updating the Guidance for Certifying Deaths due to COVID-19, however key principles remain. The information below are key pointers from this advice and includes additional advice on what to record for patients dying with COVID-19, or from post COVID-19 condition (long-COVID).

                Think wisely Grasshopper!

                When to report a COVID-19 vaccination death to the coroner
                The fact that a person received a COVID-19 vaccine some time prior to their death does not of itself make their death reportable to the coroner. The death of a person who has received a COVID-19 vaccination will only be reportable to the coroner if:

                the death may be vaccine-related (health care related); or
                the death is reportable for another reason (for example – the person died as a result of mechanical fall-related injury).
                Further information, including where to seek advice from the Coronial Registrar regarding whether a death should be reported to the Coroner, is available at Attributing deaths to COVID-19 vaccines – a guide for medical practitioners (PDF 302 kB)

                If only death was that simple.

                COVID-19 survivors have an increased risk of death 12 months post infection

                “For people younger than 65 who were hospitalized with COVID-19, the risk of death in the 12 months after the infection was 233% higher than it was for people who did not have the disease, results published in the journal Frontiers in Medicine have shown.

                Nearly 80% of all deaths of people in the study who had recovered from COVID-19 in the past 12 months were not due to cardiovascular or respiratory causes, suggesting that the impact of the virus is significant and wide-ranging, even after the initial infection has been fought off. “

              • #

                No Gee Aye. I merely repeat the findings of cardiologists who use standard risk assesment and blood markers to predict heart attacks and find the risk doubles 10 weeks after the second vax, but they don’t know when it returns to normal because no one has done a study long enough to find out.

                Blood markers suggest an increased risk of heart attacks

                They are not even trying to research all the possible known and unknown effects. So easy to prove me wrong by linking to full database of studies that seek out feedback and reporting of every vaccinee with a long term follow up.

            So Gee Aye, your saying the 770 deaths over the past 12 months were “not deaths caused by vaccination”.
            Australia’s population at 30/06/2021 was 25,739,256 persons. The death rate for the year 2020 was 488.8 deaths per 100,000 persons (Bureau of Statistics). Applied to the mid 2021 population, that gives 125,813 deaths in the past year and as 770 were not due to vaccination does that mean that 125,043 deaths were due to vaccination. Crikey!

        Interestingly, I submitted two FOIA requests to the TGA for the Causality Assessments they (in theory) use to determine level of causality. Of course both were refused for reasons of privacy and too much data to manage. I did get an inadvertent implication that not all (now) 770 cases had had the full process performed for them. I was successful in getting them to release the ages of all reported-as-deceased cases after an initial refusal. The DAEN portal they provide (intentionally in my opinion) does not provide an interface that shows the age of the cases that resulted in death.

        Your point about the causal vs coincident nature of adverse events is of course the central issue. There is zero transparency on the Causality Assessment process. The flu vaccine(s) has been administered in Australia for decades and increasingly in quantities (millions) and demographics (many elderly) that are highly similar to the covid vaccinations. So the default position is that we should be seeing a similar number of “coincident” reports of death following flu vaccination. Except of course we don’t. At all. Clearly one explanation is that they always occurred they were just never reported (which would be its own separate issue no doubt). The other obvious explanation is that there is a causal link between the novel covid vaccinations and the reported deaths. Surely this discrepancy alone should be sufficient for a heightened level of transparency in Causality Assessments?

            Knowing someone who has written numerous death certificates for decades he can tell you that ONLY those who have a correct PM can actually state the exact cause of death and even then, it is not 100% by any means.
            He adds that so often, especially with sudden death “oldies”, he would receive a call from the PM guy begging him to cut down the workload and write a “guess” certificate.
            Any death certificate written out under the mandates and certainly even before then, was at the mercy of politics and like the overinflated Covid stats (to obtain more money for the hospital as well as to please those running the show) any statistic based upon such an environment is garbage and especially so with deaths DIRECTLY caused by the so-called “vaccines” or in reality spike poisons. The the pressure to hide them under the carpet, just as you are helping to do, would have been immense as a career could be cancelled in a second by those who ran the show.
            Your attempts to cover the lies is based upon the same reasoning that produced them: politics and not science.

                Indeede-ooo

                A death certificate tech of some 35 years experience admits that the coroner is usually so busy with murders, suicides, and other mysterious happenings that there is no time for routine PM in normal times. The cause is often guessed at by way of what medications the person was taking, or other coincidental information. She says never trust death certificates for actual cause. Not if it is really important.

          So the default position is that we should be seeing a similar number of “coincident” reports of death following flu vaccination. Except of course we don’t. At all. Clearly one explanation is that they always occurred they were just never reported (which would be its own separate issue no doubt). The other obvious explanation is that there is a causal link between the novel covid vaccinations and the reported deaths.

          Another possibility why flu vaccine deaths (if there are any) might not be recorded as such could be that it’s typically older people who get the flu shot and their death would likely simulate a natural older age death. Or it could trigger a comorbidity fatal event that appears to be a natural older age death.

          Did people have flu shots over the last couple of years or not bother under the covid mayhem or due to movement restrictions? Perhaps it was the lack of flu shots and not the lack of flu that caused a drop in excess deaths in Aus during covid. 😉

    Belgium ended its vaccine passport system and mandatory school masking today. Add it to the ever growing list of countries putting COVID in the rear view mirror.

    Why is the Australian government still hanging on to the absurd folly of vaxxine mandates when there’s this news about Pfizer’s idea of a vaccine:
    The Pfizer Vaccine Only Has 1,291 Side Effects!
    A judge forced the FDA to release Pfizer’s clinical data and it’s worse than you can possibly imagine. (My bolding & italics)

    What use are these petitions? This one closed July 2021 and had over 300,000 signatures. Nothing happened.

    https://www.aph.gov.au/e-petitions/petition/EN2753 ‘Petition EN2753 – No Mandatory Covid-19 vaccination’.

      What use are these petitions?

      Two things.

      1. People who either won’t have the jab, or did have it but did not want to, can feel that they are doing something positive to assert their views and
      2. Nothing will happen immediately and the petition will seem to be ignored, yet the numbers count. The number of signatories are noticed.
      There is an election coming.

      Gbees, fair question.

      In a sense they are a tool we can use, but like the Constitution, it only counts if someone is willing to use it.

      Petitions are a place to start.

      Thanks for digging out the old one. 300k!

        I agree we must not give up but at the same time must remain realistic. If such petitions continue to fail, then there is really only one other peaceful recourse; stop vetoing for the major parties. I prefer we do that at the next election anyway. I’m sure some will do that but whether it’s the answer only time will tell. One thing is for sure. If we as a whole we keep placing one or the other major party into power with a majority rule then nothing will change, apart from getting worse and worse. We could keep on running more and more petitions hoping one day one will “stick”. Given the way our governments are gradually becoming more draconian, I can’t see how petitions will ever work. The ballot box is our only real hope but as I noted, it’s not necessarily going to work either. Of course one could hope that a new leader of either major party turns out to be our hero, but that IMHO is pure fantasy.

        I am sorry Jo but this is a VERY selfish approach to a national and world wide problem The purpose of vaccination is NOT ONLY to help individual from becoming ill – that is certainly their choice – but to help protzect the rest of the community. Any one who doesn’t want to risk vaccination – in their tiny mind, a potentially harmful process, cetainly has a right to refuse. But having refused must be kept at arms length from the rest of the community who are still subject to sever illness if they pick up the virus from an anti-vaxxer. I am very disappointed with all of the commentators below who seem to believe that they have a right to put others lives at risk.

          “But having refused must be kept at arms length from the rest of the community who are still subject to sever illness….. “

          You have essentially just admitted that you know that the vaxxines do not protect the rest of the community.

          You do know that vaccinated people catch and spread the virus. Surely you don’t believe the current Omicron wave is only in un-vaccinated people? If you do believe that – the question is where have you been? Roughly 80% of the people dying in NSW are double or triple vaxxed. That narrative died and was buried a long time ago.

        Jo, I’ll add that I’ve signed every petition and donated to legal funds fighting the mandates. Both my kids were trying to hold out from being forcibly jabbed against their will but gave in to the coercion when threatened with being fired and the police removing them from the premises if they tried to come to work. Now they are both injured following the non-vaccines, my daughter has fertility and menstrual issues and my son ongoing insomnia. I have other family members with pericarditis/myocarditis and many of my kids’ friends have had significant adverse reactions. One of them was blind for 25 mins following the administration of the vax. I searched your website for any information on what lawyer Reiner Fuellmich is doing but couldn’t find anything. He’s just finished a Grand Jury (www.grand-jury.net) process and is continuing the fight to bring those responsible to justice. There is also lots of legal action happening in the US and also some cases here. In the end truth will win out, but the corruption is rife. I’ll continue to write emails to politicians, contribute to funds for legal action and sign whatever petitions are necessary to stop this madness. Thanks for all you do.

    These mandates are not only illegal, they are dangerous to our health as well as to the economy. They must stop.

      Yes indeed but that won’t stop our despot governments enacting even harsher and more dangerous mandates. It really is time to see the true colours of the major parties. Then again I don’t hold much hope of that since most people are politically colour blind as well as asleep/aloof/brain dead or whatever the case may be.

      See my note below. If I catch the virus from you and become very sick I will certainly be peeved and even VERY cross with you.

        “If I catch the virus from you…”

        What? But aren’t you vaxxinated against it ?

        If you were thinking rationally, you would be peeved and very cross at your choice to take an ineffective vaxxine.

    I am sorry to have to say this but anti-vaxers are selfish people who think only of themselves. They are effectively saying that they don’t care if they carry a virus which affects someone – probably many people – who then lose their life. You don’t have to be vaccinated. That is your choice. But don’t expect to be let loose in the community to spread the disease to others.

      Triple vaxxed spread covid just as easily as the untainted.

      So sorry that you have realised that your vaxxed status doesn’t actually mean anything to the virus.

      • #

        Not true. The wider vaccinations have obviously reduced the number of people contracting the virus and the larger proportion of people who have died have been also been unvaccinated. Of course this is your choice but whille vaccinations are never perfect – even for our annual flu shot – but unvaccinated people are more likely to carry the disease and put others at risk.

      Oh so scared of catching the virus.. because you are double or triple vaxxed.

      John Nicol appears to believe all advertising including what the vaccine manufacturers claimed (at least over a year ago).
      Sufficient data is now available- these vaccines cause more harm than good. By openly dissuading their use we are being quite generous and public spirited.

      Trash, uninformed, lead me please, I can’t see the real world type trash.

      Back when Vaccines were a government run public service I lined up eagerly for a chance to not suffer like two older people on my street who had been maimed by polio.

      I readily took many other vaccines after.

      I looked down on the antivaxers up at Nimbin.

      Now, having seen nine people in my community hit by obvious Kovid VaXXine adverse reactions I accept the evidence; the VaXXines are dangerous.

      That’s only the obvious short term damage; there’s almost certainly more long term effects to be revealed.

      Your comments reveal you are either uninformed or an “influencer” working for the Covid19 Conglomerate.

      What’s being done to Australia by these VaXXines is evil on a grand scale.
