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.

    Publisher of Unique Literature Worldwide Blocked by International Distributor

    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.

    Care prompts bishops to criticize transgender ideology

    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. Cardinal Anders Arborelius, Bishop of Stockholm, is one of the signatories of the document.

    FREEZING IN THEIR HOMES is the new grim reality for many Brits and Northern Europeans. Margaret is 92 years old and has just come in from the winter cold, but no warmth awaits her at home. She fears her own home more than the icy streets. Next to her are four thick blankets, and on the shelf above the fireplace, which she can no longer afford to buy wood for, is a meter showing the daily cost of electricity (inset). It shows £1.03, about 13 SEK. When it reaches £3, about 38 SEK, she is forced to turn off the little heat she has to afford it. Still image: ITW News

    Brits Forced to Live in Darkness and Cold

    Food prices are rising at a furious pace, fastest in Scotland in almost half a century. At the same time, energy prices are at record highs. People are forced to choose between freezing or going hungry, and a majority of Scots are forced to live in cold and darkness to cope with bills. Old generations' tricks for saving and keeping warm are returning. Nevertheless, it is feared that 10,000 Brits will die of cold homes this winter. We present the Swedish Public Health Agency's guidelines on indoor temperature. Governments in Europe are introducing rationing and monitoring of food purchases. Net-zero emissions are a lie that, in practice, de-industrializes the West and dramatically lowers our standard of living.
