Class action against mandatory medication – join up

Letter to the Editor

A Melbourne based lawyer named Serene Teffaha from https://advocateme.com.au is running a class action against the Federal Government over mandatory medication.

Having engaged numerous lawyers over the years, she seems to be legit and reasonable with her fees.
Check out her video here and maybe contact her with the view to adding a few more to her action that will reduce the cost to everyone.  She plans on placing documents before the High Court  about mid August.

Is this fascist Labor Senator Ciccone from Victoria mixed up with electoral roll stacking?

Another ALP grub from Victoria, but this one hates anti-vaxxers. How close is Raff Ciccone to corrupt branch stacker extraordinaire Adem Somyurek?  A stacked electoral roll is the only way this intellectual pygmy could get elected

The Age – by Senator Raff Cicone

As if the bushfires weren’t bad enough, we’ve since had the world economy shut down, millions infected with COVID-19 and hundreds of thousands dead. This pandemic feels like we’re in the middle of a real-life Hollywood blockbuster.

Like all good movies, this one will leave us fundamentally changed well after it’s ended. Our world will look and feel very different once the show is over. But not for the better.

Thankfully, the possibility of a vaccine for this virus is looking more plausible. Unfortunately, like a diabolical plot twist, the day the vaccine arrives, so too will the inevitable chorus of those who object to being vaccinated. But unlike hapless movie heroes, we can be prepared for this.

How close is Victoria Labor senator Raff Ciccone to electoral roll and branch stacker Adem Somyurek? He donned this hard hat waiting for the sky to fall in from all the vaccine-damaged kids and their suffering families.

To anti-vaxxers, I have one message: our tolerance for your wilful ignorance is over. We cannot afford, morally or economically, to give any ground to those who choose not to be vaccinated against COVID-19.

Let me be clear. I’m not advocating that we vaccinate people against their will. That would be wrong. We must ensure that the safety of our community is the number one priority. That means that participation in everyday life cannot put others at risk. If you do not want to be vaccinated against COVID-19, you ought to bear the consequences of that decision.

As a community, we should consider to what extent we allow organisations to prevent those who object to being vaccinated against COVID-19 to enter their premises, participate in their activities and, in some circumstances, seek their employment.

Governments have gone some way to doing this by implementing policies such as withholding family tax benefits and preventing children from being accepted into childcare unless vaccinations are proven. Further restrictions would be a natural extension of these policies.

Restaurants could be allowed the right to refuse entry to those who are not vaccinated against COVID-19. Businesses, especially those involved in the care or service of vulnerable communities, might be allowed the right to refuse employment to those without a COVID-19 vaccination. Organisers of mass gatherings could deny the sale of tickets on this basis.

No doubt there would be logistical issues to overcome. However, the health and safety of our population should be any government’s primary concern, and the infrastructure to implement these changes exists.

We already have an Australian Immunisation Register in place that tracks a child’s vaccination history. We could expand this program to track what would be the most important vaccination of this century to the population.

There are those who for medical reasons cannot receive vaccinations and would rightly receive an exemption. There are already government guidelines in place that would allow for this to occur.

For the rest who claim they are conscientious objectors, the excuses don’t stack up anymore. There is too much at stake. I know after writing this my office will be inundated with correspondence from anti-vaccination activists demanding to be heard. For those of you who do contact me, know this. I have no interest in your alternative “facts” or your conspiracy theories.

Your views are fortunately in the minority, and that’s how they will be treated. Today’s media landscape is such that you will probably receive attention for your ill-informed comments, but that doesn’t mean you are right. It just means you have been noticed.

The truth is we’re not living in the plot line of a movie. It’s not a story that can just be rewritten, and we won’t just walk out having spent $30 on a movie ticket and popcorn.

This is the real world with real consequences, and more than ever we can’t afford to put lives at risk.

Raff Ciccone is a federal Labor senator for Victoria.

VAXBUS tour to highlight thousands of vaccination injuries and deaths

For Immediate Release: June 2020

In under 2 weeks, nearly 1,200 Australian families have registered to tell their vaccine injury, vaccine death or unvaccinated story on the AVN’s Vaxxed Bus!

The Bus tour will be starting in mid July, 2020 in Southeast Queensland and is called The People’s Truth. It will enable parents who have ‘done the right thing’ by vaccinating their children according to government recommendations, only to see their precious children sicken or die as a result, to share their stories in a compassionate and sympathetic environment.

The Bus will also be a platform for those whose children are unvaccinated to tell their stories and to show Australians that good health does not necessarily come from a needle.

“The Australian Government, the mainstream media and medical authorities like the Australian Medical Association (AMA) are trying their hardest to prevent families from knowing the basic facts – listed in the prescribing information for each and every currently-licensed vaccine. These documents show that vaccines can and do cause a range of serious side effects including brain damage, anaphylaxis, paralysis and death amongst others.”  Says AVN President, Aneeta Hafemeister.

The AVN sources its data from peer-reviewed science and believes that doctors should be abiding by the National Health and Medical Research Council’s (NH&MRC’s) requirements when it comes to providing patients with truly informed consent to vaccination:

For consent to be legally valid, the following elements must be present: 12,14 

  1. It must be given by a person with legal capacity, and of sufficient intellectual capacity to understand the implications of receiving a vaccine. 
  2. It must be given voluntarily in the absence of undue pressure, coercion or manipulation. 
  3. It must cover the specific procedure that is to be performed. 
  4. It can only be given after the potential risks and benefits of the relevant vaccine, the risks of not having it, and any alternative options have been explained to the person. 

The person must have the opportunity to seek more details or explanations about the vaccine or its administration.

“Nowhere in the NH&MRC or Australian Government requirements does it state or imply that vaccinations should be made mandatory without the ability to ask questions or ultimately refuse; should be administered with coercion; that those who want further information about this medical procedure should be bullied or ridiculed; or that they should lose their rights to informed choice and be labelled as ‘anti-vaxxers’ simply for asking questions.”  Ms Hafemeister continued.

“The Bus will be our platform for informing, supporting and honouring those families whose children have paid the ultimate price for following government recommendations as well as being a place where data on the health status of the unvaccinated can be collected. We are doing what we have been asking the federal government to do since 1998 – comparing the health of the vaccinated vs that of the unvaccinated.” 

For the latest research comparing the health of the unvaccinated with their vaccinated peers, we recommend you read this recently-published article by Dr Brian Hooker and Neil Z Miller – Analysis of health outcomes in vaccinated and unvaccinated children: Developmental delays, asthma, ear infections and gastrointestinal disorders  https://journals.sagepub.com/doi/10.1177/2050312120925344
