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 👊

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.

Unfortunately this should have been posted earlier

The reputation of British justice now rests on the shoulders of the High Court in the life or death case of Julian Assange.

The appeal hearing at the High Court which will decide Julian Assange’s immediate fate has been set for Wednesday 27th and Thursday 28th October. This is a watershed moment in the most important press freedom case of the 21st century. If the appeal court upholds the decision to refuse extradition to the US made by Westminster Magistrates Court last January it will make it very difficult for the US to continue to seek extradition…

The usage of the term ‘woke’ has spread rapidly in the last ten years from meaning awareness of racial prejudice and discrimination to describing the identity politics of various ethnic groups in the USA. The term has a long history reaching back to the 1930s when Black American folk singer-songwriter Huddie Ledbetter, a.k.a. Lead Belly finished a song advising people with the words to ‘best stay woke, keep their eyes open.’

The history of ethnic- or identity- based politics has long been a long one in the United States going back to the ethnocultural (ethnic, religious and racial identity) politics of the 19th century. Identity- based politics resurfaced in the 1960s with the Black Panther Party (BPP) (originally the Black Panther Party for Self-Defense), a Black Power political organization founded by college students Bobby Seale and Huey P. Newton in 1966. In the 1970s, identity politics were seen with the Black feminist socialist group, Combahee River Collective, and spread with the LGBT movements of the 1980s. Today ‘wokism’ is associated with identity-based groups such as Black Lives Matter (BLM). read full story / add a comment

Kieran Morrissey an Irish engineer who has worked for over 22 years in a major Irish teaching hospital has released a very important video and written the article reproduced here. In summary he says the widespread adverse effects now being seen caused by the Covid Jabs which involves mainly blood clots and associated problems like strokes and heart attacks and heart failure have symptoms very similar to what the Marburg virus can cause. Already forces are at work in the media to claim a Marburg pandemic is on the way. By sheer chance they have a vaccine even more deadly. The vaccine injuries which are growing massively by the week and will really take off when people take the boosters will be used to create the new scare and force a new round of vaccinations for Marburg which will cause even more death. It is important for people to break the cycle of taking deadly vaccines and understand what is planned. read full story / add a comment

Letter from a serving member of the state of Victoria Police in Australia

Hi Tommy.

I am a current serving member of Victoria Police in Australia. I am embarrassed by my organizations approach to policing this so called pandemic. Just thought Id reach out to you and let you know that there are many among us that dont agree with this approach and are willing to put our careers on the line to speak out against it.

I am one of those and I hope that by me speaking out it may encourage others to do the same.

Following is the body of an email I sent to Victoria Police Management, yesterday, prior to todays protest in Melbourne.

It may cost me my Career but its a small price to pay in the pursuit of liberty and an end to this current dictatorship we are living under.

Keep up the good work.
