Stop South Africa’s health amendments, Stop the WHO
What’s happening in South Africa right now concerns us all
Last May at the Better Way Conference, lawyer and activist (or ‘lawctivist’) Sabelo Sibanda gave a clear warning to the world. He is one of many challenging the WHO’s proposed pandemic agreement which, if confirmed in 2024 at the 77th World Health Assembly as planned, would undermine people’s sovereign rights in every member nation.
You can read more about it here, but in brief, the proposals would give the WHO legal authority to declare a pandemic and then impose public health measures across all member nations. Think lockdowns, mask mandates and enforced medical interventions. Governments would no longer have the right to set their own policies, so member states would be at the mercy of one, unelected, corrupt ‘health’ organisation, currently headed up by a man with no medical background who recently overruled the WHO’s emergency committee to unilaterally declare monkeypox a Public Health Emergency of International Concern (PHEIC).
How could the WHO possibly pull off such an outrageous power grab, you may well ask? By being smart, and not a little sneaky. This is what Sabelo warned us about back in May. He explained that the WHO was working toward its pandemic agreement by ensuring the amendments were implemented country by country. This is precisely what is happening. Right now, all eyes need to be on South Africa, as this wonderful country – my birth country – is facing a nightmare situation that concerns all of us, everywhere.
Its government is considering a shocking set of amendments to its health legislation that would remove people’s rights to bodily autonomy. These amendments include forcing people into quarantine – which for most people will require them to go to state-run facilities (ie. concentration camps) – forcing people to undergo medical examination, and to accept medical treatment against their will. Please watch Sabelo explain the full implications here. His video currently has under 7,000 views, we need to bump that up several times over so please share widely.
If South Africa accepts these amendments, it will be fully aligned with the WHO’s proposed pandemic agreement. Remember Sibelo’s warning: if the WHO has its way, amendments like these may be coming to your country, too.
That may sound far-fetched, but let’s consider South Africa’s history: this is a nation where apartheid lives fresh in the collective memory, where people fought long and hard for their rights, where freedom newly acquired is dearly treasured. How can such a country even contemplate giving it all up? How can these proposals even be up for consideration?
I don’t have an answer, but if a country such as South Africa can find itself at such a juncture, where else could this happen?
This is why we would do well to turn our attention to South Africa and do what we can to help its people. There are three fellow Substackers doing incredible work here, and I cannot recommend them highly enough.
James Roguski is a journalist who has done sterling work in bringing the WHO’s agenda to the world’s attention. Visit his Substack for clear information on the proposed amendments to South Africa’s Health Act, and for insightful updates on the WHO’s power grab.
Margaret Anna Alice is a brilliant writer, commentator and fellow warrior shedding light on tyranny in all its forms, including the WHO’s amendments. Her latest post is a letter to the South African government calling for the rejection of the proposed amendments to the Health Act.
Also, my fellow World Council for Health Steering Committee Member, lawctivist and South African, Shabnam Palesa Mohammed’s Substack, Take Back Power is another great resource on these crucial topics.
All three writers offer clear actions that we can take to help the people of South Africa defend their freedoms. We already owe South Africa’s activists and lawyers for their work in helping to throw out proposed amendments to the International Health Regulations earlier this year. Let’s now help them fight their own corner and make sure these tyrannical proposals are summarily dismissed.
