Over 6000 Scientists, Doctors Sign Anti-lockdown Petition

Calls for only ‘focused protection’ of vulnerable people from COVID so everyone else can build herd immunity

Over six thousand scientists and doctors have signed a petition against coronavirus lockdown measures, urging that those not in the at risk category should be able to get on with their lives as normal, and that lockdown rules in both the US and UK are causing ‘irreparable damage’.

Those who have signed include professors from the world’s leading universities. Oxford University professor Dr Sunetra Gupta was one of the authors of the open letter that was sent with the petition, along with Harvard University’s Dr Martin Kulldorff and Stanford’s Dr Jay Bhattacharya.

It declares that social distancing and mask mandates are causing ‘damaging physical and mental health impacts.’

The petition, dubbed the Great Barrington Declaration after the town in Massachusetts where it was written, has been signed by close to 54,000 members of the public at time of writing, as well as over 2600 medical and public health scientists and around 3500 medical practitioners.

“Those who are not vulnerable should immediately be allowed to resume life as normal,” it notes, adding “Keeping these [lockdown] measures in place until a vaccine is available will cause irreparable damage, with the underprivileged disproportionately harmed.”

“Current lockdown policies are producing devastating effects on short and long-term public health,” the declaration also declares.

It continues, “The results (to name a few) include lower childhood vaccination rates, worsening cardiovascular [heart] disease outcomes, fewer cancer screenings and deteriorating mental health – leading to greater excess mortality in years to come, with the working class and younger members of society carrying the heaviest burden.”

“Keeping students out of school is a grave injustice,” the declaration adds.

“Those who are not vulnerable should immediately be allowed to resume life as normal, it concludes, explaining that “Simple hygiene measures, such as hand washing and staying home when sick should be practiced by everyone to reduce the herd immunity threshold.”

“Schools and universities should be open for in-person teaching. Extracurricular activities, such as sports, should be resumed. Young low-risk adults should work normally, rather than from home,” it emphasises.

Finally, the declaration demands that normal life should resume, stating that “Restaurants and other businesses should open. Arts, music, sport and other cultural activities should resume. People who are more at risk may participate if they wish, while society as a whole enjoys the protection conferred upon the vulnerable by those who have built up herd immunity.”

The declaration echoes President Trump’s words earlier this week when he returned to the White House and asked Americans not to live in fear or let let the virus dominate their everyday lives:

The declaration dovetails with other research that has concluded lockdowns will conservatively “destroy at least seven times more years of human life” than they save.

Germany’s Minister of Economic Cooperation and Development, Gerd Muller, has warned that lockdown measures throughout the globe will end up killing more people than the Coronavirus itself.

In an interview with German newspaper Handelsblatt, Muller warned that the response to the global pandemic has resulted in “one of the biggest” hunger and poverty crises in history.

Muller’s comments come five months after a leaked study from inside the German Ministry of the Interior revealed that the impact of the country’s lockdown could end up killing more people than the coronavirus due to victims of other serious illnesses not receiving treatment.

As we have previously highlighted, in the UK there have already been up to 10,000 excess deaths as a result of seriously ill people avoiding hospitals due to COVID-19 or not having their hospital treatments cancelled.

Professor Richard Sullivan also warned that there will be more excess cancer deaths in the UK than total coronavirus deaths due to people’s access to screenings and treatment being restricted as a result of the lockdown.

His comments were echoed by Peter Nilsson, a Swedish professor of internal medicine and epidemiology at Lund University, who said, “It’s so important to understand that the deaths of COVID-19 will be far less than the deaths caused by societal lockdown when the economy is ruined.”

According to Professor Karol Sikora, an NHS consultant oncologist, there could be 50,000 excess deaths from cancer as a result of routine screenings being suspended during the lockdown in the UK.

In addition, a study published in The Lancet that notes “physical distancing, school closures, trade restrictions, and country lockdowns” are worsening global child malnutrition.

Experts have also warned that there will be 1.4 million deaths globally from untreated TB infections due to the lockdown.

As we further previously highlighted, a data analyst consortium in South Africa found that the economic consequences of the country’s lockdown will lead to 29 times more people dying than the coronavirus itself.

Hundreds of doctors are also on record as opposing lockdown measures, warning that they will cause more death than the coronavirus itself.

Despite citizens across the world being told to observe the lockdown to “save lives,” numerous experts who are now warning that the lockdown could end up costing more lives are being ignored or smeared by the media.

UK Police Chief Warns Lockdown Could Spark Riots, Civil Unrest

Cops breaking up Christmas family gatherings could set off “time bomb.”

A police chief in the UK has warned that lockdown is a “time bomb” that could eventually explode into riots and mass civil unrest.

The United Kingdom has placed its citizens under different ‘tiers’ of lockdowns depending where they are in the country, although anecdotal evidence suggests there is now mass non-compliance with the rules.

This could force authorities to become more draconian in enforcing the measures, which could in turn spark a violent backlash.

According to West Midlands commissioner David Jamieson, “We’re sitting on a time bomb here.”

“We’re getting very near the stage where you could see a considerable explosion of frustration and energy,” he added.

“Things are very on the edge in a lot of communities and it wouldn’t take very much to spark off unrest, riots, damage,” warned Jamieson.

The comments were made off the back of another warning – that people who violated the rules by organizing family Christmas gatherings could see their celebrations broken up by police.

The West Midlands is currently under a Tier 2 lockdown, which means that it’s illegal for two separate households to mix indoors, ruining Christmas for many families or at least those who choose to abide by the rules.

The prospect of video footage showing police officers entering homes to break up Christmas family gatherings is only likely to turn the public further against the lockdown, which was introduced under the guise of “getting back to normal” but has now become the new normal.

Joe Rogan Debunks Claims He Spread ‘Anti-Vaxxer’ Conspiracy Theories

Posts clip of Bill Gates admitting 80% of participants suffered side effects after corona vaccine trial.

Joe Rogan responded to criticism that he was spreading “anti-covid vaccine conspiracy theories” during his podcast with Alex Jones by posting a CBS News clip in which Bill Gates admitted that in one COVID vaccine trial, 80% of participants suffered side-effects.

Following a failed outrage campaign to have Rogan’s podcast with Jones deplatformed altogether, critics then turned to the content itself, accusing Rogan of facilitating dangerous conspiracy theories about COVID-19 vaccines.

Their specific gripe centered on Jones’ claim that a coronavirus vaccine trial left 80% of participants with side-effects.

“I knew people were going to criticize the content of the podcast without even listening and I was right,” said Rogan on his Instagram page.

I knew people were going to criticize the content of the podcast without even listening and I was right. That’s why I fact checked every single crazy thing he said, and all of them were verified. People have said he spread “anti-covid vaccine conspiracy theories” because he said that 80% of the people who were given one of the vaccines got sick. Here’s the video of Bill Gates admitting it himself. Now, I’m NOT anti vaccine, and if a safe and effective covid vaccine is created I’ll take it and encourage others to take it, but I wanted to put this video up to validate what he said. He said a lot of crazy, but accurate things, and that’s what I’ve been saying about him for years. He’s most certainly fucked up in the past, but this episode and the subjects he exposed highlight why I chose to have him on.

Rogan posted a video of Bill Gates appearing on CBS News, during which the host explained how at least 80% of participants in a coronavirus vaccine trial experienced a “systemic side effect ranging from severe chills to fevers.”

Gates was then asked, “Are these vaccines safe?” to which he countered that the side effects were not “super severe”.

The host then emphasized that “everybody with a high dose had a side effect,” to which Gates responded, “Yeah but some of that is not dramatic, where you know it’s just super painful.”

“Now, I’m NOT anti vaccine, and if a safe and effective covid vaccine is created I’ll take it and encourage others to take it, but I wanted to put this video up to validate what he said,” wrote Rogan.

UK Police Force Says it Will Break Up Christmas Gatherings to Enforce COVID Rules

“Police will have to intervene.”

A police force in the UK has vowed to break up Christmas family gatherings that violate coronavirus ‘social distancing’ restrictions.

The West Midlands Police and Crime Commissioner David Jamieson said the force wouldn’t hesitate to intervene in situations where the rules were being broken.

“If we think there’s large groups of people gathering where they shouldn’t be, then police will have to intervene. If, again, there’s flagrant breaking of the rules, then the police would have to enforce,” Jamieson remarked.

The West Midlands is currently under a Tier 2 lockdown, which means that it’s illegal for two separate households to mix indoors, although there appears to be widespread non-compliance across the country.

After BBC journalist Victoria Derbyshire said she would break the rules to see her family at Christmas, she was forced to recant and apologize.

Respondents to the news vented their fury.

“Its almost as if the police and politicians are deliberately trying to provoke people. If they do try this at Xmas things will get very nasty very quickly,” said one.

“It is now the time to stand up against this tyranny!” added another.

Others pointed out that without a warrant, police wouldn’t legally be able to enter homes to enforce the rules.
