SUPPORT these two Brave Heathcare Students who are ready to take action to CHALLENGE the Discriminatory VACCINE PASS Policy imposed by Trinity College.

Healthcare students have been told by Trinity College that they cannot complete their clinical placement unless they proivide proof of vaccination:

'We are in the middle of our degrees. Now, we are being told that we must either prove that we have received a Covid-19 vaccine or risk bidding farewell to our career dreams, degrees, and all the hard work and savings already invested in them.

Last Sunday the government officially launched a two tiered society of apartheid in Austria in a throwback to the 1930s when the Nazi's took over by enforcing a lockdown for just the un-vaccinated who were to be confined to their homes and only allowed out to shop for feed or exercise.

In a surprise move today, the police union have announced they are not going along with this. The big question is how many?

Austrian Army and Police have stated they will NOT enforce the UNWAXXED Lockdown on the grounds it goes against...👇

"freedom and human dignity".

They will join a monster November 20 Rally, in Vienna.

Serious cracks are beginning to appear... Long Live Freedom 👊

Recent analysis of US VAERs data that looked at the batch numbers of the vials of vaccines show that in the US there were over 4000 different batches each with potentially 100,000s to millions of vaccines other batches with far less but nevertheless showed that 100% of the vaccine deaths were attributed to just 5% of the batches. This showed conclusively that the kill rate is very careful controlled. They will now ramp it up a bit more since nearly everyone is "captured" by the system. So this story here reported by Vaccine Impact should be read within this context.

We are creating an entire generation of young people with weak hearts who will either die early, if they survive the COVID shots, or be dependent on the medical system to treat their weakened hearts for the rest of their lives.

The CDC and FDA know this, and have even issued warnings about it, but they call these events “rare” and refuse to stop injecting young people.

Health officials in Taiwan have apparently figured this out, as it was just announced that they are halting injecting children ages 12 to 17 with the second Pfizer shot, due to concerns about heart damage, and that they are NOT approving Pfizer shots for children below the age of 12 until this issue is settled

This report in from Vaccine Impact

Today I bring you more evidence that the leaders of the U.S. Government health agencies and the pharmaceutical companies producing the COVID-19 “vaccines” are guilty of crimes against humanity, including mass murder.

I have been criticized and censored by many even in the alternative media for using such strong language, often being accused of using “sensationalism.”

But when the truth and the facts are so obvious as they are today, sensationalism is not needed. Just the courage to tell the truth, and expose the criminals, is all that is needed to warn the public

SALMON FARM’S 80,000 MORTALITIES ‘PARTLY CAUSE BY FARMS THEMSELVES’

FISH FARM CLAIM THAT ALGAE BLOOMS ARE ‘NATURAL’ CONTESTED AS 80,000 SALMON DIE

Mass mortalities reported by Mowi (formerly Marine Harvest) because of algae blooms at two of their salmon farms in Bantry Bay are ‘partly caused the farms themselves’, according to local group Save Bantry Bay.

Algal blooms are becoming an increasing problem worldwide, with salmon farms in Chile reporting losses recently of 6,000 tons of fish. The recent death of 80,000 mature salmon at two of Mowi’s sites in Bantry Bay is said by the company to be as a result of a toxic algal bloom in late October. The true extent of the losses has not been fully established yet. The deaths have occurred only a few kilometres from the controversial proposed new mega-salmon farm site at Shot Head. read full story / add a comment

New Zealand has been lorded over by a so called "liberal" who has been as tyrannical as any tyrant, for the last 18 months. They have had prolonged lockdowns and very severe restrictions and up to now there appears to have been very little resistance that we have known about.

But not now and in the last few days, there has been an enormous protest against vaccine passes and COVID mandates outside the Parliament building in Wellington, New Zealand. Here two videos are presented and in one of them protesters perform the Haka, a traditional Māori dance.

In an unusual move the British Medical Journal has gone against the establishment by daring to publish something that breaks the Covid narrative to some degree with an article titled:

Covid-19: Researcher blows the whistle on data integrity issues in Pfizer’s vaccine trial

In the last 18+ months we have see the reputation of one institute after another been thrashed and that includes the scientific establishment as they kow tow to the global tyranny to push through the Covid scamdemic. Just last year we saw the presitigious Lancet journal publish a completely fraudulent article purporting to show hydroxychloroquinewas not effective when it turned out the data was fabricated and they were forced to re-withdraw the paper yet the WHO used the paper as a reason to call a halt worldwide at the time to the use of the highly effect drug. That separate story is told quite well in this interview with Dr James Todaro at https://delingpole.podbean.com/e/dr-james-todaro/

There have been numerous other blatant frauds carried out and it has become quite clear that scientific establishment is beholden to corporate interests and big capital as any other and it is against that background then that it is so unusual for the BMJ to defy these powerful interests read full story / add a comment
