  • Respekt.net ist für mich eine einzigartige Möglichkeit aktiv an der Gestaltung unserer Welt mitzuarbeiten. Die Zeiten sind vorbei, in denen wir alle paar Jahre das Kreuz bei dieser oder jener Partei gemacht und dann die Hände in den Schoß gelegt haben. Unzufriedenheit und Ohnmacht können auf dieser Plattform sich in eigenverantwortliche Initiativen und Solidarität wandeln. Das finde ich gut, zukunftsorientiert und kraftvoll! Auf geht’s.

    Ground-breaking ruling in Czech Republic undermines mandatory vaccination!




    A step in the right direction for human rights in the Czech Republic: 'not only religion, but also freedom of conscience in the broadest sense can be a reason for parents to refuse the mandatory inoculation of their child, the Czech Republic’sConstitutional Court said in a ground-breaking ruling on Wednesday the 20th January 2016. The decision concerned parents who were recently fined for having refused to inoculate their child on the ground of possible health complications.'





    Parents may avoid vaccinating children in exceptional cases; Group says there is a third child custody case in Norway

    Parents may avoid vaccinating children in exceptional cases

    The Czech Constitutional Court (ÚS) ruled that parents can refuse to have children vaccinated based on freedom of conscience in a broad sense, and not just freedom of religion.

    The case involved parents who had been fines for failing to comply with compulsory vaccination.

    But the reason has to be more than a mere doubt about the effectiveness of vaccination, according to Judge Ludvík David.

    Experience in the family with bad side effects is one possible exception that could lead to a fine being forgiven

    The court added it was necessary to balance factors including the strength of belief and the impact on society.

    Under current law, falling to vaccinate may be fined up to Kč 10,000.

    The parents in this case said they would not vaccinate on account of their conscience and un the child's best interest. They cited fear autism as a side effect, and that a vaccination would interfere with the child's natural defenses.

    The Health Ministry responded to the ruling by posting a video about the effectiveness of vaccines.

    Is HPV Vaccine Safety an Illusion Maintained by the Suppression of Science?


    Is HPV Vaccine Safety an Illusion Maintained by Suppression of Science?

    SaneVax-FeaturedBy Norma Erickson


    Breaking News: On January 14, 2016, Dr. Sin Hang Lee sent an open letter of complaint to the Director General of the World Health Organization, Dr. Margaret Chan, charging members of GACVS, the CDC, the Japanese Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare, and others with manipulation of data and suppression of science in order to maintain the illusion of HPV vaccine safety in the face of valid contradictory evidence.


    According to Dr. Lee’s letter, a series of emails recently uncovered via a Freedom of Information request submitted in New Zealand revealed evidence that Dr. Robert Pless, chairperson of the Global Advisory Committee on Vaccine Safety (GACVS), Dr. Nabae Koji of the Ministry of Health of Japan, Dr. Melinda Wharton of the CDC, Dr. Helen Petousis-Harris of Auckland University, New Zealand, and others (including WHO officials) may have been actively involved in a scheme to deliberately mislead the Japanese Expert Inquiry on human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine safety before, during and after the February 26, 2014 public hearing in Tokyo.


    The complaint letter states that the emails provided clearly demonstrate this group of WHO officials and government employees charged with the responsibility of advising the expert committee from the Japanese government on HPV vaccination safety knew before the February 26, 2014 Tokyo public hearing that one of their own experts showed scientific evidence that HPV vaccination does increase cytokines, including tumor necrosis factor (TNF), particularly at the injection site compared to other vaccines. Yet, they chose to suppress this information at the public hearing.


    Of course, this piece of scientific data which was known to all members of the group is also missing from the GACVS Statement on the safety of HPV vaccination issued on March 12, 2014. Unfortunately for medical consumers, this is the same GACVS statement currently being used to assure health officials, political decision makers and medical professionals around the world there is nothing to worry about when it comes to the safety of HPV vaccines.


    Dr. Lee concluded his letter of complaint by clearly stating that there is at least one known mechanism of action explaining why serious adverse reactions occur more often in people injected with HPV vaccines than other vaccines, and why certain predisposed individuals may suffer a sudden unexplained death as a result. It appears this is part of the information the ‘experts’ deemed necessary to suppress.


    Dr. Lee states:


    Those whose names appear in my complaint and any who blindly dismiss valid safety concerns in order to continue promoting HPV vaccinations should be held accountable for their actions. There is no excuse for intentionally ignoring scientific evidence. There is no excuse for misleading global vaccination policy makers at the expense of public health interests. There is no excuse for such a blatant violation of the public trust.
