EU Leaders Demand ‘Standardised’ Vaccine Passport For Travel

“Persons who have been vaccinated should be free to travel”

EU leaders are demanding that the Commission should ‘standardise’ a vaccine passport across all member countries, and that it should be required for people to travel throughout the area.

Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis has penned a letter to EU Commission chief Ursula von der Leyen, outlining that “Persons who have been vaccinated should be free to travel.”

The letter calls for a “standardised certificate, which will prove that a person has been successfully vaccinated.”

While it stops short at advocating mandatory vaccination, the letter further urges that “It is urgent to adopt a common understanding on how a vaccination certificate should be structured so as to be accepted in all member states.”

Mitsotakis has pledged to raise the issue during an upcoming EU summit on January 21, declaring that “there is an urgent need for a high-level EU-wide mobilization to move things forward.” 

Vaccine passports have previously been touted by the EU, with officials suggesting back in April that visa applicants would also be required to be vaccinated.

EU countries including Spain, Estonia, Iceland, and Belgium have all indicated that they are open to some form of vaccine passports, as well as sharing the data across borders.

This week, it was also revealed that Denmark is the latest country to announce that it is rolling out a ‘Covid passport’, to allow those who have taken the vaccine to engage in society without any restrictions.

However, the EU’s data protection chief Wojciech Wiewiórowski recently labeled the idea of an immunity passport “extreme” and has repeatedly said it is alarming, and ‘disgusting’.

The spectre of so called ‘immunity passports’ is looming globally.

Having left the EU, Britain would not be part of any standardised European scheme, however it has now confirmed that it is rolling out vaccine passports, despite previous denials that it would do so.

Recently, the government in Ontario, Canada admitted that it is exploring ‘immunity passports’ in conjunction with restrictions on travel and access to social venues for the unvaccinated.

Last month, Israel announced that citizens who get the COVID-19 vaccine will be given ‘green passports’ that will enable them to attend venues and eat at restaurants.

litany of other government and travel industry figures in both the US, Britain and beyond have suggested that ‘COVID passports’ are coming in order for ‘life to get back to normal’.

Anna Beduschi, an academic from Exeter University, commented on the potential move toward vaccine passports by EU, noting that it “poses essential questions for the protection of data privacy and human rights.”

Beduschi added that the vaccine passports may “create a new distinction between individuals based on their health status, which can then be used to determine the degree of freedoms and rights they may enjoy.”

A report compiled last year by AI research body the Ada Lovelace Institute said so called ‘immunity’ passports “pose extremely high risks in terms of social cohesion, discrimination, exclusion and vulnerability.”

Sam Grant, campaign manager at the civili liberties advocacy group Liberty has warned that “any form of immunity passport risks creating a two-tier system in which some of us have access to freedoms and support while others are shut out.”

“These systems could result in people who don’t have immunity potentially being blocked from essential public services, work or housing – with the most marginalised among us hardest hit,” Grant further warned.

“This has wider implications too because any form of immunity passport could pave the way for a full ID system – an idea which has repeatedly been rejected as incompatible with building a rights-respecting society,” Grant further urged.

Image Shows School Band ‘Socially Distanced’ Inside Human Tents

Clown world strikes again.

Published

on

Twitter

An image shows students at a school in Wenatchee, Washington State socially distanced inside what look like human tents as they perform in a band.

The picture appears to show two girls playing saxophones while trapped inside the awning-like structures, while others in the background play flute.

According to the article, “You can’t see them smiling beneath the masks,” but the kids are happy to be back at school.

The article quotes Wenatchee Principal Eric Anderson, who celebrates the fact that the school environment has been carefully tailored to ensure that students never remove their face coverings.

“We really have an environment in this building where there is never a reason where a kid has to take their mask off,” he said.

That’s presumably why the children in the image have been made to stand inside the tents, because they have to remove their masks to play the instruments.

Growing up in a world where they are forcibly isolated from each other, starved of physical contact and cannot properly discern facial reactions while having to wear humiliating human tents.

Video: Man Flying Back Into Canada Refuses Airport COVID Test

Canadians who test positive forced to undergo quarantine in government facility.

Published

After a new policy mandating Canadians take an airport COVID test to determine whether they will have to undergo quarantine at a government facility was introduced yesterday, a viral video clip shows a man refusing to take the test before being issued with a fine.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau outlined the details of the new policy in a tweet yesterday afternoon.

“Update: If you’re flying back into Canada, you’ll need to show a negative PCR test result before you board the plane – and as of today, you’ll need to take another PCR test when you land. You’ll then have to wait at an approved hotel, at your own expense, for your test results,” Trudeau tweeted.

Under the rule, if the test is negative, Canadians are still forced to quarantine in their own homes, a policy that will be “enforced” according to Trudeau.

Those who test positive for COVID-19 are forced to quarantine in “designated government facilities” for 14 days. Another PCR test is then required towards the end of the quarantine.

However, a video clip posted to Instagram by Chris Sky shows him arriving at an airport in Canada and refusing to take the test. The video has received over 500,000 views.

“Got my bags, we’re gonna go outside and refuse their stupid test and tell everybody to refuse their stupid test,” says Sky in the clip.

The video shows Sky being asked why he is not wearing a mask before he explains to officials that the COVID test is a “violation of our charter rights section 6 and a violation of the Emergency Act 14.1 – so I’m going to be declining your test today.”

Sky then tells the other people in the queue to deny the test if they are Canadian citizens, claiming “they cannot stop you, they cannot force you, you are a citizen, you have rights.”

Police then ask Sky for identification before asking again if he is refusing to take the test.

“I refuse to take your test a million percent,” he responds.

After being told he is getting a ticket, police refuse to say how many people have been “convicted,” with Sky insisting the number is “zero.”

“Why? It’s a violation of our charter rights, so when that ticket goes to court, they throw it the fuck out – it’s that simple,” states Sky.

After being issued with the fine, Sky was presumably allowed to leave the airport and re-enter Canada without undergoing a COVID test or being told to quarantine.

UK: Health Authorities Announce Not a Single Case of Flu Detected This Year

Professor suggests keeping mask mandates in place during winter.

Health authorities in England have announced that not a single case of influenza has been detected this year, with one professor suggesting that mask wearing should be kept in place during winter to drive down flu deaths to “zero.”

“The social restrictions brought in to curb transmission of coronavirus, combined with an increased uptake of flu vaccine, have both been credited with driving down infections,” reports the Independent.

Of the 685,243 samples tested at the PHE’s laboratories since the first week of January, not a single flu infection was discovered.

Professor Christina Pagel went on to suggest that some of the measures brought in to fight coronavirus could be kept in place to combat flu infections.

Asserting that “we can reduce flu deaths to pretty much zero,” Pagel said it is “worth encouraging people to wear masks” on public transport and in other busy environments every winter.

As we previously highlighted, other health experts have suggested that flu cases are so dramatically low because influenza cases are being falsely counted as COVID cases.

Last month, top epidemiologist Knut Wittkowski asserted that, “Influenza has been renamed COVID-19 in large part.”

According to the CDC, the cumulative positive influenza test rate from late September into the week of December 19th was just 0.2%, compared to 8.7% from a year before.

According to Wittkowski, former Head of Biostatistics, Epidemiology and Research Design at Rockefeller University, this was because many flu infections are being incorrectly labeled as coronavirus cases.

“There may be quite a number of influenza cases included in the ‘presumed COVID-19’ category of people who have COVID-19 symptoms (which Influenza symptoms can be mistaken for), but are not tested for SARS RNA,” Wittkowski told Just the News.

Numbers published in April last year by the UK’s Office of National Statistics also showed that there had been three times more deaths from flu and pneumonia than coronavirus.

“The number of deaths from flu and pneumonia – at more than 32,000 – is three times higher than the total number of coronavirus deaths this year,” reported the BBC.
