Anti-vaccine union to represent German healthcare workers
The general obligation to get jabbed against Corona is off the table for the time being in Germany, but not the so-called facility-related obligation to vaccinate employees in the nursing and healthcare sector. If they refuse to be vaccinated, they face discrimination and even loss of their jobs. Because of this, a special interest group has now been set up, which sees itself as a trade union for the unvaccinated: the Center for Health and Social Affairs [Zentrum Gesundheit & Soziales in German, ed.]

Co-founder Petra Kolberg is a registered nurse and holds a degree in business and labor law. In an interview, she criticized the established trade unions for, among other things, the fact that there has been zero support whatsoever for colleagues who are affected by the facility-related vaccination requirement. The trade union Ver.di “even promoted vaccination instead of campaigning for it to remain a voluntary decision”.
The new unvaccinated union wants to draw attention to their concerns through nationwide campaigns in the future. For example, through organized work stoppages in clinics or care facilities: “Because the staff shortage is so severe, every [clinic] would be paralyzed within a few days,” explained Kolberg.
In the long term, they want to “become a strong union” and, beyond the issue of voluntary vaccination, campaign for better working conditions and a holistic health approach.
The government needs new enemies
But for the traffic-light coalition leftist government, new enemies are needed: The Thuringian SPD interior minister Georg Maier now wants to assign “Corona deniers” to the “right-wing extremist” camp. With a view to alleged or actual Corona deniers, he is convinced: “It is right-wing extremists who incite them.”
The scene is clearly right-wing politically motivated, according to Maier.
The German Minister of the Interior Nancy Faeser (SPD) and President of the Office for the Protection of the Constitution (the domestic spy chief, ed.) Thomas Haldenwang presented the 2021 Office for the Protection of the Constitution report. In it, a newly invented object of observation is listed for the first time: “Delegitimization of the state hostile to democracy and/or dangerous to security”.
This includes the so-called “Corona deniers”.
An indictment by a government expert
A good part of the Corona measures imposed by the German government in the last two years were not only pointless, but even harmful. This was the finding of new studies – including that of a member of the Expert Council of the Federal Government. Reinhard Berner has carried out a so-called meta-study and compared the restrictions in Germany with the less strict measures in other countries. The doctor focused primarily on examining the effects on children.
The results are sobering: The children in Germany are no healthier than in neighboring Switzerland, although daycare centers and schools in this country were closed for 38 weeks – five times longer than in Switzerland. The incidence figures are almost exactly the same. Worse, however, is that children and adolescents in Germany have to contend with a multitude of secondary diseases, especially mental disorders.
Berner’s conclusion is stark: “If we assume that in the future we will have to deal with variants that are comparable to those of the past two and a half years, then there is no longer any justification for school closures.”
The expert added that studies had previously confirmed that school closures often led to weight problems in children – among doctors, lockdowns are considered to be “obesity drivers”.
The mask requirement also proved to be counterproductive and harmful when compared with other countries. According to the pediatrician Berner, an investigation by the Finnish health authority suggested that the mask requirement did not bring any significant advantage. “As long as variants like Omicron appear in the future, politicians can save themselves from prescribing a mask in primary schools,” the expert concluded.
Sadly, his advice will probably be forgotten in a few months.

CLIMATEThe United States' government scientific organization, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), predicts zero sunspots from 2031 to 2040. This is an extreme situation that has not occurred in as long as humanity has been counting sunspots, and it leads us into uncharted territory in terms of our solar system. However, this prediction aligns with the warnings of the world-renowned solar researcher Valentina Zharkova for many years, who indicated in 2019 various signs of this catastrophic phenomenon, including the extreme hailstorms we have seen in Europe and the world this summer. The forecast and various observations this year give cause for very significant concern. In this unique analysis, Free West Media explains why.
EUROPEAN ELECTIONSOn Saturday, August 26, representatives of six European nationalist parties gathered in Budapest. The meeting was initiated by the Hungarian party Mi Hazánk and took place in the national parliament. Representatives of the parties signed a joint declaration that not only reaffirms the parties' friendship but also their unity on a range of complex political issues. A surprisingly clear and radical manifesto was established. The hope is that this cooperation will lead to success in the EU elections and eventually result in the formation of a group in the European Parliament. For Swedish nationalism, this meeting marks a success as Sweden, for the first time, has a party represented in a leading nationalist cooperation in Europe. Free West Media was present at this historic event.
Sweden will have to wait a bit longer for NATO membership, according to Turkey's Justice Minister Jilmaz Tunc. First, Sweden must extradite the "terrorists" Turkey wants and stop the desecration of the Quran.
The Russian attack helicopter Ka-52 is considered one of the world's best and has struck fear in Ukraine, where it has hunted down tanks and other armored vehicles, often beyond the range of many light anti-aircraft systems. However, it has met its match in the Swedish air defense missile system RBS 70, which has quickly led to significant losses for the Russian helicopter forces.
Alternative for Germany (AfD) held a party conference on July 29-30 to select candidates for the upcoming EU election next year. EU Parliament member Maximilian Krah, belonging to the party's more radical, ethnonationalist faction, was appointed as the top candidate. The party's two spokespersons delivered powerful speeches criticizing the EU's failed migration policy and trade sanctions that isolate Europe and Germany from the rest of the world. They argued that it's time for the EU to return a significant portion of its power to national parliaments. However, they have dropped the demand for Germany to exit the EU.
The rising popularity of AfD has raised strong concerns within the establishment. Despite lies and demonization in the media and isolation from the overall political establishment, the party continues to grow. Certain representatives of the party are accused of becoming increasingly "extreme," and in an unusual move, the influential weekly newspaper Der Spiegel demanded that AfD be "banned."

After a criminal complaint in Belgium against the President of the European Commission, the so-called SMS-case, now takes a new turn. The judge responsible for the investigation will likely gain access to the secret messages exchanged between Ursula von der Leyen and Albert Bourla, CEO of Pfizer, at least if they haven't been deleted.
Arktos has distinguished itself by publishing groundbreaking philosophers and social critics. Now, the publisher's international distributor has abruptly terminated the cooperation, and more than 400 already printed titles cannot reach their audience. There is strong evidence that the distributor has been under pressure, something that has also happened in Sweden. We have spoken with Arktos founder Daniel Friberg about the ongoing struggle for freedom of speech in a shrinking cultural corridor.
The Catholic bishops of the Scandinavian countries presented an open five-page letter criticizing transgender ideology on March 21, just before Easter. The document primarily expresses care and advice and was read aloud in Catholic churches in Sweden, Norway, Finland, Denmark, and Iceland.
