This morning.

Darwin, Australia.

An SOS from a group of Indigenous Australians alarmed at reports of forced vaccinations and covid positive Aborigines and their contacts being removed from their homes and placed in isolation centres.

    All those that get the Jab because they have so much empathy for their fellow humans I assume also have concerns about this.

    I travelled throughout the Northern Territories back in 2000 and I can say that ‘they’ have been ethnically cleansing Aborigines with alcohol dependency for decades.

      I had a pal who lived in Australia for a few years and he came back to Ireland with some pretty racist views on the Aboriginal people.

      Nothing outright evil, but just weird ideas about them. About how they learn things and stuff and how it wasn’t possible to teach them things etc. I can’t remember the exact details.

      They seemed completely rational ideas to him – like he was kinda brainwashed by the Australians he was hanging out with.

      Weird…

          You need to start thinking and reading the data for yourself.

          Most studies have found little to no evidence for the effectiveness of face masks in the general population, neither as personal protective equipment nor as a source control.

          See the studies and much more here – https://swprs.org/face-masks-evidence/

          Most of us aren’t at any risk to covid so don’t need a vaccine for it. These covid vaccines on offer don’t provide immunity either so any benefit is only for the person taking it.

            I’m only trying to keep it based on facts and reality, not hysteria.

            I know loads that have had it too, vaccinated and unvaccinated, all were fine. A bad flu at worst for some. We have to be able to live with bad flus.

        I was out there for a couple of years and found Australians to be ridiculously racist against everyone. I worked in pubs and clubs and was called every Irish slur you can think of.
        not all but a lot of Australian working men have a huge chip on the auld shoulder.

    Clip of Western Australia Police Commissioner Chris Dawson announcing that over the next 5-8 weeks his police force will be targeting aboriginal communities in the region with a door to door mass vaccination campaign because uptake has been low so far.

    “If they don’t take it up the first time because they have some doubts, we’ll sit down with them and engage with them. And that’s going to be intensive. It’s going to require..a great effort over the next 5-8 weeks to lift that rate right up.”

    Scary stuff. What if the indigenous folk tell them that they’re still not changing their minds and don’t want the vaccine? Are the officers really going to respect that and just go away and leave them in peace? I don’t think so.

        They’re already using the army to forcibly remove them to camps. Your disingenuity cannot hide or excuse these acts.

        I don’t think you are able to empathise in this case, Cian. I have known caring women who had held down responsible jobs in roles where they were managing other people but who would hide behind the sofa (in actual fact, not just figuratively) when the health visitor knocked on the door. They did not feel able to withstand the pressure exerted by this ‘official’ representative who would come into their homes and tell them to treat their child in a way with which they themselves did not agree.

        In the case of the aborigine people, many of whom already feel they are unfairly treated, their homes are going to be invaded (as they are likely to view it) by members of the POLICE force who will ‘sit down with them and engage with them’ in order to persuade them to do something that they have already said they do not wish to do.

        Yes, I do think the experience will be pretty horrible for them

        Armed police arriving to your doorstep trying to compel you to take an on-the-spot injection, having already indicated they don’t plan to take no for an answer. There’s no reason for concern though, the man in authority said they will “sit down”! Your naivety is off the scale, is all I can say.

        (edit, sorry John I didn’t see your comment before I posted mine. Well put.)

    How sad is that, the Aboriginal people are calling on the Irish people to help them.
    So relieved to see this cri d’coeur up here, never let it be said that youse didn’t know.
