Last Friday, we saw a flurry of media articles and stories announcing government plans to introduce a ‘No Jab No Play’ law in Western Australia (WA), despite Health Minister Roger Cook’s previous reassurance that he would await COAG guidance “to ensure there is a nationally consistent approach to immunisation requirements for attendance at childcare and preschool.”… [Read More]
The following posts feature the behaviour of the media.
Brian Martin is an emeritus professor at the University of Wollongong, Australia, and vice president of Whistleblowers Australia. He is the author of 17 books and hundreds of articles on dissent, scientific controversies, nonviolence, democracy, education and other topics.
In 2009 in Australia, a citizens’ campaign was launched to silence public criticism of vaccination. This campaign involved an extraordinary variety of techniques to denigrate, harass and censor public vaccine critics. It was unlike anything seen in other scientific controversies, involving everything from alleging beliefs in conspiracy theories to rewriting Wikipedia entries…. [Read More]
AVN Gives a Voice to the Vaccine-Injured
24th November 2017
The AVN (Australian Vaccination-skeptics Network Inc), a volunteer-run community health group that is committed to defending medical freedom in this country, continues to build awareness regarding the growing number of Australian children and adults affected by vaccine injury.
Our organisation has leased a 6x3m billboard to inform the general public, the government, the media and the medical community that, “One Day, Everyone Will Know the Truth About Vaccines.”
This message points directly to #TashasStory. Tasha David is the mother of 8 children – 6 of whom are vaccine-injured. She is also the AVN’s President. Tasha shares her family’s personal story of vaccine injury:… [Read More]
Christine Bayne, who, back in 2010, implored her Twitter followers to “put a bullet” in AVN founder Meryl Dorey’s brain has taken out the Australian Skeptics top award at Skepticon.
In an attempt to avoid responsibility for those tweets, Christine Bayne made her tweets private for that Twitter account shortly after she posted them in 2010. Her main Twitter handle currently is @DilutedThinking but there are others.
It is always a great source of amusement when the deceptively named Australian Skeptics hands out awards to its own for seriously questionable, if not, downright illegal activity, and let’s be honest; it’s not as if one would list this award on one’s CV.
The award seems to be reserved for the most repugnant of a repugnant lot…. [Read More]
I have just read the article you wrote for the Fraser Coast Chronicle regarding the AVN’s up-coming screening of the documentary film, VaxXed, in Maryborough on November 6th, 2017.
I appreciate your coverage of our event and would like to inform you, since the AMA obviously did not, that Dr Michael Gannon and Dr Bill Boyd from the AMA National and QLD groups, were both invited to attend a screening and to sit on the Q & A panel along with the other experts from overseas to answer questions that parents might have regarding vaccination. Cameron Dick, QLD Health Minister and Dr Jeannette Young, Chief Medical Officer also received invitations – please click the link above to see more…. [Read More]
It is almost impossible to believe that the New South Wales (NSW) LNP government has enacted a No Jab No Play law prohibiting unvaccinated children from being enrolled in early child care and education services, in the absence of any evidence showing that unvaccinated children pose a risk to other children, or the public health more generally, and contrary to the recommendation of an expert committee.
The Report on the Statutory Review of the NSW Public Health Act 2010 was tabled in parliament during November 2016 and included a number of recommendations relevant to the issue of so-called vaccine-preventable disease and vaccination.
Recommendation 31: The Public Health Act should not be amended to remove the conscientious objector exemption to enrolment in a childcare facility. (page 49)
QLD Premier, Annastacia Palaszczuk said that VaxXed should never have aired at Miami State High School despite the fact that over 400 local parents, concerned community members, medical doctors and healthcare professionals attended the screening.
“My initial advice is there has been some misrepresentation from that organisation to the school in question where they conveyed to the principal that they were to be conveying information about organic produce,” she said.
Provided below is a copy of the booking forms created by the QLD Government, which was submitted to Miami State High School and approved by the QLD Government, stating clearly that the Australian Vaccination-skeptics Network, Inc (AVN), was the organisation hiring their venue…. [Read More]
Here is the post that Facebook has tried to censor. Can I please, please PLEASE ask that ALL of you share it on your pages? It is obvious that they are terrified that we will be given the ability to take the Federal Government to the High Court of Australia and demonstrate that they have acted illegally and unconstitutionally.
The last thing that Facebook, Pharma or our corrupt government officials want is to see Australian citizens retaining the right to say what goes into our bodies or the bodies of our children. With your help, there will come a time in the near future when people will look back on this time like we do now on the dark ages.
An important message from the AVN National Committee:
We have now raised a bit over $100,000 in sponsorships towards our High Court case against the government to overturn the No Jab, No Pay legislation! That is an incredible amount of money to raise in such a short time, but our ultimate goal is $500,000 so we are only 20% of the way there…. [Read More]
You guessed it! We are under attack yet again by the poisonous pens of the Murdoch minions., The latest instance reminded me of a blog I wrote a while back called “Anti Vaxxers the new dirty word”. Even though I wrote it over three years ago, it is just as relevant now as it was then. In this blog, I spoke about the natural progression of persecution against anyone who questioned vaccines.
“The path to repression begins with many small steps. It starts with the gradual wearing away of someone else’s rights through restriction of employment, public education, and government entitlements. Then comes ostracism whilst creating fear, hostility and resentment towards the group in question from the rest of society. Not too soon after that, segregation comes in to the mix.”
It was as if I was looking into some kind of warped crystal ball, when Victoria and Queensland welcomed the roll out of segregation against preschool children in 2016. Instead of the shock and horror that any sane person would feel at the imposition of such draconian legislation on children, this move was greeted with pats on the back and congratulations all around. How could we as a society have fallen so far that we would welcome the segregation of innocent children?… [Read More]
The public flogging of veteran broadcast journalist Katie Couric began on Dec. 4, 2013, immediately after a 17-minute report on HPV and Gardasil vaccine was broadcast on her TV talk show “Katie.” It was kick-started by a west coast business writer, who administered the first lash with a bizarre take-down of freedom of the press:… [Read More]
