John Waters andd Gemma O'Doherty and Supporters crowd into Hight Court

category national | rights, freedoms and repression | news report author Thursday April 23, 2020 20:22author by anon Report this post to the editors

John Waters and Gemma O' Doherty have taken an action against the state that was before the Hight Court on Tues that challenged the laws introduced in response to the coronavirus pandemic hoax.

In a shock move more than 40 supporters sat closely together which has horrified many sheepish citizens of the new police state. Instead of being struck down dead by the "Bug" the exposed the hoax for what it is but Garda didn't do too much to intervene becaue this bunch were immune to the absurd propaganda and statements we have heard in recent weeks since the hoax began.

People gathered in the Round Hall of the Four Courts and were addressed by Doherty and Waters who urged people to "take back the country".

As part of their High Court action they are seeking to have parts of the emergency lockdown legislation declared null and void by the Judge.

However this is unlikely since Ireland Inc. is now apparently under direct orders from medical bureaucrats in the WHO but in reality by the people pulling their strings.

Ms O'Doherty Ms O'Doherty said what was happening regarding the lock down was "outrageous".

And people were being held under mass house arrest, or fear being interrogated by the Gardai if they leave their homes.

People should be allowed to go about their business and normal life must be allowed to resume.

The vast majority of people are unaffected by Covid-19, which was "no threat to life", .

She claimed that the Irish people should be allowed to go outside and "build up a herd immunity."

Expert medical evidence supporting her claims will be presented to the court as part of the case.


Mr Waters told the court the legislation was “unconstitutional”, “improperly enacted” and “very flawed”.

Waters and O' Doherty were representing themselves

The judge said the court was only concerned about the legality of the legislation challenged and not about any Government policy, directed the application for permission to bring the challenge be made on notice to the State respondents and adjourned the matter to today


The days events were reported widely.

The transcript of the Court Proceedings are are available in the attached PDF.

Here is a sample:
I do not want to be here today, but we are here because we are going to defend this book. Now, many other things are being interfered with as well, many other fundamental rights, such as the right to the children of Ireland to have an education, one of the basic fundamental rights laid out in this Constitution. People also have a right to private family life. What is currently being suggested is that members of An Garda Síochána may enter, break and enter into homes to investigate as to whether people with this virus, which there still is no actual test for, this is where this legislation is going. We also know that there are very serious discrepancies in relation to the Mental Health Act, the fact that only one person now, a barrister, solicitor can ascertain if somebody has ‑‑ if there are concerns about their mental health. Outrageous attacks on our fundamental freedoms are taking place as we speak. The entire working population is being denied the right to earn a living, who is paying for all of that? The taxpayer. This €350 that people are getting, somebody is going to have to pay for that further down the line. The Irish people are currently in debt of about €240 billion, €50,000 on the head of every Irish man, woman and child from the last disaster. We are now going to head into another recession that will make the Celtic Tiger look like a teddy bear’s picnic if this continues. The economy must be re‑opened. The people of Ireland must be ‑‑ must be allowed to go about their business. Our parks must be re‑opened. Our beaches must be re‑opened. The streets of our country, our roads must be re‑opened. These illegal garda check‑points must cease and normal life must resume. Not least, Judge, because in doing that, the 99.5 percent of the population who is utterly unaffected by coronavirus will go out and build up herd immunity.

The lockdown is supposed to save lives which it doesn't ....

but in the UK all cancer treatment has been cancelled.


In a few months when these tens of thousands of people die they will be labelled Covid deaths and they will use this as the long anticipated surge and use it to prolong the long term to the end of the year and beyond.

Found story in https://www.bbc.com/news/health-38630640

They are claiming this is because of the lack of hospital beds but that is a lie as there are widespread reports that hospitals are almost empty.

The purpose of this story is because in the UK more people are breaking the lockdown because they realize it is pointless and it is to put across the idea that the cancer patients will die because hospitals are full and if YOU breakdown the lockdown, there will be a surge in Covid patients and YOU will be responsible for KILLING cancer patients because there are no beds to treat them.

QED -while it is true cancer ops are being cancelled the key bit is the lie that this is because there are not enough beds.

Watch how desperate they get and how much bigger the lies they use to keep this thing going.

Sweden has questioned the scientific basis of other EU countries’ strict coronavirus lockdowns. Details here

https://www.theguardian.com/world/2020/apr/24/sweden-queries-basis-of-lockdowns-as-germany-keeps-its-guard-up

Sweden have taken a more sane and mature approach and are in a matter better position and have not liquidated their economy in the process.

In Germany some restrictions have slowly being lifted and in Czech it is reported a Court in Prague has found the lockdown measures were illegal so they are being lifted immediately.
