A UN official tasked with monitoring extrajudicial killings warns that examples of lockdown flouters being targeted by excessive force and cruelty are “multiplying” across the globe.

“The number of allegations of police killings and their excessive use of force that I have received and have been reading are deeply concerning,” said Agnes Calamard.

“Graphic accounts of police cruelty and violence, often directed at the most vulnerable and individuals and communities, are multiplying,” she added.

Dictatorial regimes in numerous countries have exploited COVID hysteria to carry out arbitrary killings, including in Nigeria where security forces enforcing lockdown regulations have killed at least 18 people.

Indeed, according to Nigeria’s Human Rights Commission, “More people in Nigeria have been killed by officers enforcing lockdown then by the disease,” reports the Mirror.

Meanwhile, In Iran, paralympian and disabled bodybuilder Reza Tabrizi faces the death penalty after questioning why the government closed down gyms let allowed places of worship to remain open.

People in the Philippines, North Korea and Kenya have also been killed by security forces for violating lockdown rules or not wearing a mask.

“Impositions of derogations of freedom of movement, including curfews, are permitted under international law in specific circumstances and may be a necessity in the context of the Covid epidemic,” said Calamard.

“But the breaking of a curfew, or of any restriction on freedom of movement for that matter, should not constitute grounds for excessive use of force by the police and under no circumstances should it lead to the use of lethal force.”

As we highlighted two weeks ago, The International Institute for Democracy and Electoral Assistance (IDEA), based in Sweden, found that the majority of nations across the globe have implemented COVID related restrictions that have severely eroded the liberties of their citizens.

The study revealed that 61 per cent of countries have used restrictions “that were concerning from a democracy and human rights perspective.”

“These [restrictions] violated democratic standards because they were either disproportionate, illegal, indefinite or unnecessary in relation to the health threat,” the group declared in its report.

Video: Fauci Blames Trump For China’s COVID Cover Up

Brags that GOP investigation of him is “not going to happen”

Published

The overlord of science Anthony Fauci blamed President Trump Sunday for China’s continued obfuscation of the origins of COVID, claiming that it was Trump’s “anti-China approach” that encouraged the Communist state to be non-cooperative.

Now that he has retired, Anthony Fauci is devoting even more time to his favourite hobby, appearing on the news, shilling for China, and telling people to get booster shots.

In his latest appearance on CBS’ Face The Nation, Fauci declared “What happens is that if you look at the anti-China approach, that clearly the Trump administration had right from the very beginning, and the accusatory nature, the Chinese are going to flinch back and say, Oh, I’m sorry, we’re not going to talk to you about it, which is not correct. They should be.”

“I think that horse is out of the barn, and they’re very suspicious of anybody trying to accuse them,” Fauci continued, adding “We need to have an open dialogue with their scientists and our scientists, keep the politics out of it. And let the scientists- because these are scientists that we’ve known for decades, and we’ve collaborated with them.”

Watch:

He also blamed Republicans for politicising COVID and claimed he has “never been” political:

Fauci also claimed that China often “acts secretive” even “when there’s nothing at all to hide,” citing the SARS-CoV-1 outbreak in the early 2000s as one example.

That would be the outbreak that China tried to underplay and cover up then.

CBS host Margaret Brennan asked Fauci if he “agrees with that word cover-up?” to which he responded “I don’t know what that means.”

“I’m not sure what they’re talking about. I mean, if cover-up is not allowing people to come in and look at all the data, that’s not a cover, that’s not being transparent,” he further stated.

In a separate interview on NBC, Fauci repeated the claim that China always acts secretive and weird… nothing new to see here.

“Even when there’s nothing to hide they act in a suspicious, non-transparent way just probably because they don’t want to make it look like there’s a blame,” Fauci proclaimed.

During both interviews, Fauci shilled for more booster vaccines, claiming that multiple shots every year will be needed, and we are still in a pandemic.

And don’t forget to test everyone before dinner…

He also said he “doesn’t know” if schools will shut down again:

Finally Fauci, bragged that now the Republicans don’t have control over the Senate, an investigation of him led by Rand Paul is “not going to happen.”

Meanwhile, over at ABC, the latest Biden COVID minion Ashish Jha was asked “what do you do?” in response to the fact that “People aren’t listening” when being told by Fauci and others to get booster shots.

As we noted last week, Jha says he really believes that “God gave you two arms” so you can be injected with both the COVID booster and the Flu shot.

    COVID Lockdown Protests Erupt In Beijing, Xinjiang After Deadly Fire

    Published

    Protests have erupted in Beijing and the far western Xinjiang region over COVID-19 lockdowns and a deadly fire on Thursday in a high-rise building in Urumqi that killed 10 people (with some reports putting the number as high as 40).

    Crowds took to the street in Urumqi, the capitol of Xinjiang, with protesters chanting “End the lockdown!” while pumping their fists in the air, following the circulation of videos of the fire on Chinese social media on Friday night.

    Protest videos show people in a plaza singing China’s national anthem – particularly the line: “Rise up, those who refuse to be slaves!” Others shouted that they did not want lockdowns. In the northern Beijing district of Tiantongyuan, residents tore down signs and took to the streets.

    Reuters verified that the footage was published from Urumqi, where many of its 4 million residents have been under some of the country’s longest lockdowns, barred from leaving their homes for as long as 100 days.

    In the capital of Beijing 2,700 km (1,678 miles) away, some residents under lockdown staged small-scale protests or confronted their local officials over movement restrictions placed on them, with some successfully pressuring them into lifting them ahead of a schedule. –Reuters

    According to an early Saturday news conference by Urumqi officials, COVID measures did not hamper escape and rescue during the fire, but Chinese social media wasn’t buying it.

    The Urumqi fire got everyone in the country upset,” said Beijing resident Sean Li.

    According to Reuters

    A planned lockdown for his compound “Berlin Aiyue” was called off on Friday after residents protested to their local leader and convinced him to cancel it, negotiations that were captured by a video posted on social media.

    The residents had caught wind of the plan after seeing workers putting barriers on their gates. “That tragedy could have happened to any of us,” he said.

    By Saturday evening, at least ten other compounds lifted lockdown before the announced end-date after residents complained, according to a Reuters tally of social media posts by residents.
