COVID News You May Have Missed

Lockdowns and vaccine coercion were protested around the world this weekend, as doctors sang the praises of Ivermectin.

Democracy in action. Melbourne, Australia (4 minutes)

 

Your mainstream news source may not have mentioned it, but history was made this past weekend:

#1. Saturday was an international day of protest against COVID-19 policies. Demonstrations took place in numerous nations, including Australia, Finland, France, Greece, Italy, Ireland, Japan, the Netherlands, Portugal, South Africa, and the UK.

AFP reports that people protested “in at least 80 cities across Italy,” and that those who took part in the Sydney and Melbourne demonstrations were defying government imposed stay-at-home orders. The four-minute video above includes footage from Melbourne, and begins with a quote from Martin Luther King Jr: “One has a moral responsibility to disobey unjust laws.”

The Associated Press says French citizens protested “across the country.” Reuters reports police used teargas and water cannon after a protest turned violent in Athens.

Significant segments of the population have reached the end of their patience. They’re now taking to the streets, demanding an end to lockdowns, vaccine passports, and compulsory workplace vaccines. Officially called the World Wide Rally for Freedom Day, protesters held signs that read “I’m not a lab rat,” “My body, my choice,” and “We will not be censored, we will not be silenced.”

In many countries, Saturday’s events were merely the latest in a series of ongoing protests. Politicians would be wise to pay attention. But when have politicians been wise?

#2 Saturday was also World Ivermectin Day. If you visit the official website for that event you can watch videos of doctors from Argentina, Brazil, India, Kenya, the Philippines and elsewhere discussing this medication. Doctors who know it effectively prevents and treats COVID-19. Doctors who are relieved it’s now within their power to save their patients, and to protect their staff and themselves.

To quote Argentinian physician Hector Carvallo (8:38 minutes on this video): “The clinical trials that have proven the efficacy of Ivermectin cannot be denied. It is like denying the existence of the sun.”
