Statement of Support

One of the fundamentals of medicine and the guiding principles around the ethical application of medical procedures and interventions is INFORMED CONSENT.

Under this banner is the requirement that the subjects of such interventions be given adequate information to make personalised informed decisions about their care. Informed Consent falls under an even bigger umbrella of the Helsinki Declaration which includes the principles of FIRST DO NO HARM and the protection of the individuals’ rights beyond those of society. 

The current environment of vaccine mandates and forced injections unfortunately goes against these fundamental medical principles which were generated from past violations of human rights and forced experimentation on humans in Nazi Germany. When investigations or interventions are experimental, it is even more paramount to ensure that we do not forgo these guiding principles as the harm done will set humanity back in terms of their trust in medicine for decades. This is the reason why the Nuremberg Code was signed at the end of World War II — to ensure that no experimentation was forced on human subjects without their consent, amongst many other precautionary requirements. 

The Red List is aiming to stay on he side of he people, by creating a platform where the respect of individual human rights is recognised and protected; where population subjects are supported through the sharing of knowledge on what these rights are, how to navigate the challenges of force and coercion; to be aware of the violators and the alternatives that exist in case of being banned from accessing the various services required for experiencing a full and meaningful life. 

The reason I’m proud to be part of the Red List is their goal to build on human solidarity, a respect for the sanctity of life and the preservation of individual human rights to bodily autonomy through this collaborative platform which is being adopted and adapted all over the world. Together we can end the tyranny and steer society back to the path of respecting civil rights and ensuring ethical interventions are applied in the current and future pandemics or any other societal challenges.
