UN Official Suggests Lockdowns Should Continue

Claims “elite” wants to re-open society, despite the opposite being true.

A top UN official says that coronavirus lockdowns should not be lifted “too hastily” in order to protect “vulnerable” people, despite the fact that some 36 million Americans have now been made vulnerable as a result of losing their jobs because of the lockdown.

“If an affected country comes out of lock-down too hastily, there is a danger that a second wave, costing many more lives, will be triggered sooner and more destructively than would otherwise be the case,” said the UN’s Human Rights High Commissioner Michelle Bachelet.

“If the re-opening of societies is mishandled, all the huge sacrifices made during the initial #lockdown will have been for nothing,” she added. “Letting politics or economics drive the #COVID19 response at the expense of health and #HumanRights will cost lives.”

Many would argue that the opposition to President Trump’s desire to re-open society is driven purely by politics in that Democrats want to see Trump lose re-election off the back of a devastated economy.

Bachelet suggested that the drive to lift lockdown is motivated by “the interests of a particular elite” which is putting “vulnerable” people at risk, despite the fact that globalist health bodies, dominant cultural institutions, Democrat-controlled states and the corporate media are all in favor of keeping the lockdown for as long as possible.

In reality, the backlash against the lockdown comprises of the very “vulnerable” people Bachelet claims to speak for, many of whom are amongst the 36 million Americans who have lost their jobs.

As numerous prominent experts have warned, the lockdowns will also end up causing more deaths than the coronavirus due to a horrific spike in poverty and people with other serious illnesses being unable to get treatment.

Video Shows Police Putting Chokehold on Woman For Violating Lockdown

Draconian enforcement of new rules continues in Australia.

A video out of Melbourne, Australia shows a police officer enforcing the city’s strict new lockdown law by putting a woman in a chokehold.

The state of Victoria’s new lockdown rules, which were introduced earlier this month, have produced what appear to be amongst the most draconian examples of police enforcement in the developed world.

A new clip shows a woman outside what appears to be a clothing store being put in a chokehold by a male police officer.

“What the fuck! Get off of me,” shouts the woman as she is grappled up against the wall.

After she kicks out a few times, the male officer then drags her to the ground by her throat.

“You’re fucked in the head, you’re fucked, what the hell are you doing to me?” asks the woman as the officer wrestles with her on the floor.

Last week we highlighted a similar case where a woman was left with severe bruising after being manhandled by officers for violating the lockdown.

Under the new rules, people are expected to adhere to a strict 8pm-5am curfew and police have the power to enter people’s homes without a warrant to enforce compliance spot checks.

As we previously reported, within moments of the new lockdown rules being announced, eyewitnesses said police surrounded residential tower blocks in Melbourne to prevent people from leaving.

However, instead of just handing out fines as would normally be expected, police officers in the region appear to be enforcing the law by physically restraining and arresting people.

Global Lockdowns Set to Plunge 100 Million Into Extreme Poverty

Response to COVID deadlier than COVID itself?

The impact of the global coronavirus lockdown is set to plunge 100 million people into extreme poverty, warns a new report by the Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting.

The report appears to pin the blame on COVID-19 itself for the economic impact, yet the actual culprit is discovered to be the “restrictions” put in place by governments in response to the pandemic.

From the report;

“With the virus and its restrictions, up to 100 million more people globally could fall into the bitter existence of living on just $1.90 a day, according to the World Bank. That’s “well below any reasonable conception of a life with dignity,” the United Nations special rapporteur on extreme poverty wrote this year. And it comes on top of the 736 million people already there, half of them in just five countries: Ethiopia, India, Nigeria, Congo and Bangladesh.”

The report notes that the impact of the lockdown on the poor in countries like India was “so abrupt and punishing” that their Prime Minister, Narendra Modi, begged for forgiveness.

The report will stir up further debate as to whether the global lockdown will prove more deadly than COVID-19 itself, with extreme poverty being directly linked to death and shortened life spans. According to research published by Imperial College London and Johns Hopkins University, around 1.4 million people are expected to die from untreated TB infections due to the coronavirus lockdown.

Experts have also warned that hundreds of thousands or even millions of people could die in the longer term as a result of the lockdown preventing them from receiving treatment for cancer and other serious illnesses.

Given that many of those sunk into extreme poverty as a result of the lockdown live in sub-Saharan Africa, this could also exacerbate mass immigration from that region into Europe.

“It’s a timely reminder that the the main cost of the lockdowns favoured by liberal policy-makers across the world will not be people in the West, but those hovering just above the poverty line in the developing world,” writes Toby Young.

“Thanks to the misguided enthusiasm of Western governments for imprisoning entire populations in their homes, thereby triggering a global recession, tens of millions of people will die of starvation in low-income countries.”
