A new study out of Oxford has found that of the one million schoolchildren sent home and forced to self-isolate for 10 days every week last term, 98.4% did not go on to develop Covid. Totally unnecessary in other words.

Thankfully the French are not taking these authoritarian police state Covid Passports lying down and there are over 175 protests going on in France. In the latest a hospital is going on strike over it as reported in rt.com. Now if something similar could happen here. Probably not as the Left have totally bought into the entire Covid fraud and once again chosen the Stalinist option of crushing individual freedom and liberty. They are now firmly on the wrong side of history.

The staff of the hospital in Montelimar, in the French department of Drome, have gone on indefinite strike to protest the new rules demanding they take a vaccine against Covid-19 by mid-September or face losing their jobs.

The strike against “forced vaccination” was announced on Thursday by the CGT-GHPP trade union, and affects some 200 doctors and 1,500 nurses in the southeastern French city.

Hundreds of them gathered outside the hospital on Friday, denouncing lockdowns and vaccine mandates and chanting “liberté!” (freedom).

With Vaccine Passports they will expire each year until you get the booster jab which rolls the dice again to seriously damage your health or even kill you

This article in the Off-Guardian is important as it describes how regardless of government mandates on Vaccine Passports, Goolgle has all the software infrastructure in place. So even though there are quite a number of US states and countries trying to back away from them, Google with their global dominance plan to make it a fact on the ground. As with al fascist system which is one where state power and corporate power work closely together or merge, the EU has played fast and loose and has been very much part of the rollout. The item starts.

On June 30th, 2021, the Google Developers blog announced the launch of vaccine passports in Android through its Passes API.

Margaret Buttimer the mask refusenik
national / rights, freedoms and repression / news report Tuesday July 13, 2021 00:14 by 1 of Indy   image 1 image
A Bandon, Co Cork, grandmother, Margaret Buttimer was sentenced to 3 months in prison today after she was convicted by a court for having the courage to stand up against the ridiculous mask rules and refusing to wear one of the useless and ineffective masks in a SuperValu on June 25th and again July 1st.

The science for decades has shown the masks are ineffective and there is no science despite what the government and Big Tech say behind the flimsy justifications for these.

The sole purpose of the masks is to maintain the fear levels in the population so that they can keep their dictatorial powers and continue with rolling lockdowns and restrictions all in an effort to usher in the totalitarian state which is well in progress now that governments everywhere are rolling out so called vaccine passports which will be needed for everything you might ever do. read full story / add a comment

A video made by an Irish couple who were returning home from abroad and were forced to book and pay upfront for one of the prison like quarantine hotels has gone viral outside of the mainstream news.

They were told when they were trying to get back to Ireland they would not be allowed board the flight unless they had booked into one of the quarantine hotels. In this instance it was the Red Cow Inn, just off the Naas Road near the M50 Red Cow Inn interchange.

The conditions are appalling and and many people are suicidal in them and they are a major untold scandal. It turns out that they discovered that neither the hotel staff nor the government had the authority to keep them there even though most people forced to stay in them are NOT made aware of this fact.

They therefore decided to leave and filmed the ordeal. They were clearly badly shaken by the whole episode read full story / add a comment

This is a Peaceful Public Assembly outside the Department of Education offices in Marlborough Street, Dublin 1. D01 RC96.

The event is to highlight the need to protect our children from abuse in schools, via forced mask wearing, and from the introduction of vaccination for children between the ages of 12 and 15.

It is also in defense of our teachers & their working conditions, their physical and mental health damaged by having mask wearing imposed on them.

Ireland is at a critical moment for the protection of human rights and civil liberties. Important achievements have been secured after long years of campaigning but in less than 18 months many are being infringed on. This needs to stop and we are calling on all those fighting for their to join us on the 19th of June at the Custom House in Dublin at 2pm to collectively show our desire to protect our shared rights. read full story / add a comment

Good news for once...

Israel has scrapped its “green pass” system. The pass was scrapped as a formality that bowed down to the reality that the vaccine passport system had on the ground already been abolished by society, which in fact did not abide by it:

This op-ed written by journalist Neil Clark for the website Russia Today and is reproduced here as many readers here are from the UK and it raises very important issues

If Covid-19 ‘Freedom Day’ on June 21 is postponed, as seems likely, and the public complies with it, Britain will never return to normal. If curbs can’t be lifted when deaths ‘with’ the virus are near zero, when will they ever be?

Don’t say you weren’t warned. Having predicted correctly, before Christmas, the very day (January 4) when Boris Johnson would announce the next lockdown, on January 1, 2021, I tweeted: ‘My inside source says that there will be no significant easing of restrictions until July at the earliest. Govt mentioning Easter as they need to take backbenchers with them & want public compliance.’
