We, The People, are concerned about worldwide media reporting about covid.
Are you, Western Media Moguls, realizing that there is hardly anything else on your programs other than covid? – Covid is at the center of everything. Covid discussions appear every hour on the hour, in the news and in between the news.
Covid reporting is non-stop alarming and fearmongering.read full story / add a comment
Motion re Extension of Sunset Clause for Parts 3 & 5 of the Emergency Measures in the Public Interest (Covid-19) Act 2020 (Department of Health)
UPDATE: The motion was passed despite opposition. See responses below. We believe it is important to keep emailing. Make sure they understand this is serious. The ICCL had to lobby to get a sunset clause added to the first version of this Act. There is no provision that prevents another (or indefinite) extension.
The Dáil is meeting on October 22nd 2020 to pass a motion on the extension of the above mentioned emergency measures until June 9th 2021. They are also voting for more power to enforce these measures through fines and with the help of Garda Síochána.
Many of us are concerned about the proposed extension of extraordinary powers given to the State during the Covid-19 pandemic under the Health (Preservation and Protection and other Emergency Measures in the Public Interest) Act 2020 and would like to message our TDs about these concerns.Unfortunately this article should have been published on Oct 20th read full story / add a comment
Doctors for Truth: Tens of Thousands Medical Professionals Suing and Calling for End to COVID Tyranny
international / rights, freedoms and repression / news report Friday October 30, 2020 21:20 by 1 of indy 2 images 1 video file
Tens of thousands, and perhaps now even hundreds of thousands of doctors, nurses, and many other medical professionals worldwide are taking action to combat the misinformation being propagated by governments and government-controlled media that continue to publish false propaganda regarding COVID.
The vast majority of medical professionals worldwide now seem to agree that the COVID “pandemic” and the government actions still being implemented in response to COVID are causing much more harm than COVID itself.
Almost all of these doctors and medical professionals now seem to agree that COVID is no worse than a typical flu season, and the main test being used to supposedly test for COVID, the PCR Test, is not reliable. read full story / add a comment
Amazon and other Online Mega Corporations Stand to Gain from Ban on Sale of Non-Essential Items in Shops.
Today across the country all the major food retailers like Lidl, Aldi and Tesco have been banned from selling middle isle "non-essential" but really are essential items like clothes, toys, homeware and other items and there has been widespread anger. This is being co-ordinated across Europe as only last week the same thing happened in Wales, UK and other countries where co-ordinated lockdowns and curfews are being put in place. Same types of bans are widespread not only across Europe but the USA.

‘RIP restaurant industry’: Protesters in Paris stage mock funeral after bars & cafés ordered to close AGAIN
international / rights, freedoms and repression / other press Tuesday October 13, 2020 14:24 by foody 1 image
Parisian restaurant and bar workers have taken to the streets carrying a mock coffin, an expression of their anger at new Covid-19 restrictions, which they say will kill off the whole industry. At a rally organized by the local trade association in the French capital on Thursday, the protesters staged the mock funeral procession with the words “Bars – restaurants – clubs” written on the coffin.Others held up a sign “Restaurant industry 1686-2020, RIP,” referring to the year when the first café-type business was opened in Paris. Some of the protesters have been seen brandishing smoke flares. read full story / add a comment

This is an extract of a piece by Peter Andrews, Irish science journalist and writer based in London -writing today for rt.com
More than 7,000 top scientists and doctors have signed a declaration known as "The Great Barrington Declaration" calling for politicians to reconsider their entire approach to Covid, and to adopt a herd immunity strategy. Why didn’t this happen seven months ago?read full story / add a comment
Given the expectation that the public must accept what restrictions the State imposes, the basis of these decisions are not the exclusive preserve of experts and advisers or even of elected officials. None of these officials was elected with the prospect of severe restriction of personal liberty in view. Yet this power has been arrogated by these officials on the basis of advice of a dire public health emergency, the predictions of which proved wholly exaggerated. It is insufficient at this stage to claim “emergency.” The emergency has passed. The harm has proved far less than advertised. Deaths are few. Yet “recommendations” are still being promulgated, and severe restrictions are again being proposed. read full story / add a comment

The current debacle in education over Leaving Cert results is a stark example of lack of thought about the fundamentals of human rights. Should high marks in an exam entitle one child to a place in some coveted university course while denying it to another child who has lower marks. Put another way does high intelligence give a student more entitlements. read full story / add a comment

Snowden warns that Assange extradition will lead free press to slaughterhouse as publisher’s critics blinded by partisanship
international / rights, freedoms and repression / other press Sunday September 20, 2020 19:50 by 1 of indy 1 video file
The US drive to extradite and prosecute Julian Assange poses a grave threat to journalists everywhere, but the publisher’s opponents have placed politics over principle, and even their own interests, said whistleblower Ed Snowden.
Due to the success of the smear campaign against Assange over the years Snowden has to speak defensively of him as per quotes below
“I think a lot of it comes down to people forgetting what principles are and why they're important,” Snowden said in an interview with Joe Rogan on Tuesday. “You can hate Julian Assange, you can think he's a puppet of Russia, you can think he's the worst person on Earth – a reincarnation of Hitler or Stalin – and still realize that convicting him harms you.”read full story / add a comment

EU Court scuttles planned fracked gas terminal permission
‘Far reaching’ EU Court ruling on Shannon LNG terminal welcomed
The European Court of Justice has advised the Irish High Court that the 2018 extension by An Bord Pleanála to the 2008 planning permission for the construction of a proposed €500m fracked gas terminal on the south bank of the River Shannon estuary must be considered as a new permit for the purposes of the Habitats Directive and must be subject to a new Assessment under the Habitats Directive.read full story / add a comment
The UK government’s new Covid rules are authoritarian and arbitrary. How much longer will people put up with this?
international / rights, freedoms and repression / other press Thursday September 10, 2020 13:26 by 1 of indy
It's really sad that there is no criticism of the Covid restrictions in the UK & Ireland in either the mainstream press & media or within the political establishments of both countries. It appears the population has quite willingly accepted these totalitarian measures. However, there is at least one or two journalists who have a backbone and have not sold their souls to the system.
As usual their pieces appear not in the mainstream media but in the much maligned Russia Today website where irony of ironies it is the home of what was formerly one of the worst totalitarian systems in the 20th century.
The piece is by Guy Birchall and this is what he has to say:
The latest crazy edict from Boris Johnson’s government is that only six people can meet up in private homes. There is no logic to this whatsoever, and it perfectly sums up their shambolic handling of the entire coronavirus crisis.read full story / add a comment
UK’s MSM has slavishly obeyed the govt over Covid like the docile arm of a despotic state. I know, because I was part of it
international / rights, freedoms and repression / other press Wednesday September 09, 2020 21:20 by 1 of indy
This article is by a journalist who has decided to come clean about the sort of pressures put on him on how to report on the Covid scare. The pro-lockdown cheerleaders in the mainstream media have been following No.10’s orders and wrongly branding all lockdown sceptics as nutty conspiracy theorists – but the tide is turning. More and more people are coming round to realise lockdown has been a major mistake. Yet newspapers and TV, here in the UK at least, are still loyally hounding down dissenters and tarring each one as some sort of lunatic who needs, well, locking up. read full story / add a comment
National Shock as Bout of Sanity Breaks Out: Doctors call for ‘utterly meaningless’ daily figures to be dropped
national / rights, freedoms and repression / news report Friday September 04, 2020 17:30 by 1 of indy
The country must be in a state of shock now that some sanity in the Covid-19 situation has broken out. The Irish Times of all places has actually published an article with this headline. It is unheard of:
Covid-19: Doctors call for ‘utterly meaningless’ daily figures to be dropped
We have known for some time that many doctors know the whole thing on reporting daily cases (as well as previously locking up the healthy and forcing them to wear masks), for a diseases that about 95% of the time only kills those who are very ill already, is a total farce. However mainly due to watching their backs, careers, being social ostracised or downright cowardice, have been afraid to speak out. Now, at long last the first tentative steps have been taken. Perhaps because they realize the entire medical establishment is rapidly losing all credibility because it has gone along with this farce and most people are obeying the rules just because everyone else does. And this brings us to this historic announcement today:
A number of doctors have called for an end to the daily Covid-19 figures, describing them as a “self-perpetuating cycle of misery”. ..“causing huge anxiety” and is “utterly meaningless”.read full story / add a comment

This report and analysis on the Berlin anti-restrictions protest last Sat 29th Aug explains how the entire mainstream media set out to discredit the protests and imply they were all Nazis and how a staged event on the steps of the Reichstag was carried out to feed this narrative. It exposes the lies and manipulations of the German government and press and the sheer dishonesty that has been evidence by all governments throughout the Covid plandemic.
