Compulsory vaccination for Covid-19 and human rights law – Written evidence from Dr Lisa Forsberg*, Dr Isra Black**, Dr Thomas Douglas*, Dr Jonathan Pugh* (COV0220)
Perhaps we set these doctors a challenge. When the vaccine is chosen, get them all to publicly drink a glass of the vaccine and be filmed in front of a live audience. (This was suggested to a doctor who was promoting the new Swine Flu vaccine in 2009 – he didn’t take up the challenge).
Our evidence takes the following form: 1. A discussion of the reasons why compulsory vaccination may need to be considered; 2. An overview of relevant legal provisions; 3. An examination of the human rights law compliance of compulsory vaccination. 25 Our analysis under 3 establishes two parity arguments: a. If Covid-19 ‘lockdown’ measures are compatible with human rights law, then it is arguable that compulsory vaccination is too (lockdown parity argument);
Thanks to Jonathan for collating the information below (about the authors of the document above). 3 of the authors are of Oxford University – who are obviously “pro vax” and heavily invested in it.
Professor Thomas Douglas
Compulsory medical intervention versus external constraint in pandemic control.
Would compulsory treatment or vaccination for COVID-19 be justified? In England, there would be significant legal barriers to it. However, we offer a conditional ethical argument in favour of allowing compulsory treatment and vaccination, drawing on an ethical comparison with external constraints-such as quarantine, isolation and ‘lockdown’-that have already been authorised to control the pandemic in this jurisdiction. We argue that, if the permissive English approach to external constraints for COVID-19 has been justified, then there is a case for a similarly permissive approach to compulsory medical interventions.

Her main research interests lie in normative and practical ethics, and in the philosophy of medical and criminal law. Her postdoctoral project, ‘Changing One’s Mind: Neurointerventions, Autonomy, and the Law on Consent’, examines the extent to which English law on consent sufficiently protects morally salient patient interests.

CDC plans COVID concentration camps – by Jon Rappoport
There has been talk of this for years, but this seems to be more “concrete” – the document in question seems to have been published in July 2020
A call to sheriffs, police officers, military, attorneys, and any honest politicians in America: WILL YOU DEFEND FREEDOM IN THIS COUNTRY? (Thanks to journalists Jefferey Jaxen and Del Bigtree for exposing this nightmare.)
by Jon Rappoport – November 2, 2020
The CDC document is titled: “Interim operational considerations for implementing the shielding approach to prevent COVID-19 infections in humanitarian settings,” updated July 26, 2020. Here are key quotes. As you read them, and realize the horrific plan, keep in mind that this system can be manipulated to order ANYONE into these camps.
This is America??

A compassionate and emotionally charged interview with a brave Irish doctor, one who tried to speak up. To speak up for a balanced and proportionate response to this challenging viral issue.
Compassion. Rationality. Logic. Science. And more – those virtues that seemed to suddenly disappear in 2020.

Broadgreen International School, Liverpool – Testing Children Without Permission?
Also in Liverpool – a letter/update posted on the link below:
reads as follows:
As you may be aware Liverpool is in tier 3 Covid-19 safeguarding arrangements. As part of this process central government has identified Liverpool to pilot a new Covid-19 testing system. This is being called the Lateral Flow System. Sites across the city are due to be positioned across the City in order to carry out testing.
I am pleased to inform you that we at Broadgreen International School are in the privileged position of
being one of the first schools within the city to have the testing brought to our site.
I have met this afternoon with representatives of the British Army who will be in school next week to COVID-19 -19 to test all our students and staff. Each child and adult will be identified with a unique barcode to ensure personal identification of test and subsequent results. Results will be distributed to students and staff as soon as we are in receipt of them. If positive results are received the school will secure the individual concerned and in case of students inform parents carer immediately we will then operate our usual process of identifying others who may have been in close or direct contact for our self- isolation system will be put in place.
We are currently working with Public Health to identify how this pilot might benefit school communities
now and in the future. I am expecting that the testing at BGIS will start on Monday 9 November.
Under normal circumstances parental permission is sought for the testing of children, however under these very challenging and unprecedented circumstances that is not possible, therefore we would ask that if you wish to exclude your child from this test please do so in writing to me first thing on Monday morning. It is important that for the health of your child, those of other parents and carers and all adults in our school and local and wider Liverpool community that we co-operate 100% with this system of health protection. As soon as we have further information, as we receive further information will share.
We can expect immediate major disruption as to how schools may be able to function once our city and eventually across the country such testing sites are operational and the resulting implications. Individual schools may be affected differently and subsequently we may need to respond on an individual need basis. Your understanding and support at this very difficult time is much appreciated.
Ms P Towey
It appears they’ve already had to back down on part of this, as of 8th Nov, their web page reads:
We are awaiting updated information about the plans for Covid-19 testing of students in Liverpool Schools.
Consent will be explicitly sought from parents.
At this point in time, we are uncertain of the start date for this.
Details will be shared as soon as possible
Is it true that even Klaus Schwabb, head of the unelected World Economic Forum has taken has taken an interest in activities in Liverpool? (Some comments on the link below suggest this is a fake/spoof account – but if so, is it run by Group 77?)
