Join us in the fight to protect our national sovereignty, democracy and freedom.

The World Health Organization (WHO) has proposed alarming changes to the International Health Regulations (IHRs).

These changes threaten the very fabric of our democratic values, personal freedoms, and national sovereignty.

In the fight to stop these changes becoming a reality, we're asking the Australian Parliament's Joint Standing Committee on Treaties to conduct a Parliamentary Inquiry, enabling the public to have a say to protect our democracy, freedom, and sovereignty.

The matter is urgent with time running out to reject the amendments to the International Health Regulations, or to affect any signifcant change.

Why is this matter urgent?

The deadline for any nation to reject the already-adopted changes to the International Health Regulations is fast approaching. After 1 December 2023, the recent changes will be set in stone.

The deadline for affecting any changes to the future proposed amendments to the International Health Regulations is mid-January 2024 and, to date, all we've seen is the original draft of those amendments and not any change that may have come out of secret negotiations the WHO is holding behind closed doors.

How do the changes to the IHRs undermine national sovereignty and democracy?

The recent and proposed International Health Regulation changes put forth by the WHO pose a direct threat to our national sovereignty.

By curtailing the timeframe for countries to opt out of new regulations and by making decisions of the WHO binding on member countries, the WHO encroaches upon the decision-making autonomy of our government and our parliament.

We must not allow our cherished democracy to be eroded by unelected international bodies that dictate binding decisions upon us from afar.

Central to these changes is giving the WHO's Director General and other office holders power to declare States of Emergency during future pandemics.

While health crises may demand swift action, we must ensure there are checks and balances to prevent the abuse of power.

Granting such authority to an unaccountable entity compromises the principles of accountability, transparency, and democratic governance.

What is the threat to individual freedom?

Among the changes to International Health Regulations looms the spectre of a global digital vaccine certificate.

While public health measures are crucial, we must not sacrifice our personal freedom and privacy on the altar of expediency or security.

The establishment of such a certificate raises valid concerns about the potential erosion of individual rights, the creation of a surveillance state, and the creation of a two-tiered society.

Support our urgent call to action: A parliamentary inquiry!

We must refuse these attacks on our nation sovereignty democracy and freedom.

We must raise our voices collectively and demand a Parliamentary Inquiry into the WHO's International Health Regulation changes.

This inquiry will provide a platform for open dialogue, expert testimonies, and public participation, ensuring that the voices of ordinary Australians are heard.

A Parliamentary Inquiry will allow us to critically evaluate the implications of these changes, their compatibility with our democratic values, and their impact on our society as a whole.

Do not delay... Act now and demand the Parliament's Treaty Committee hold an inquiry!

Now is the time to rise against the tide of encroaching authoritarianism.

We must defend our democratic ideals, protect our hard-fought freedoms, and reclaim our national sovereignty.

Let us unite in this call for a Parliamentary Inquiry into the WHO's International Health Regulation changes, ensuring that the Australian public has a voice in shaping our collective future.

Together, we can forge a path towards a healthier, freer, and more democratic society.

Request for a Parliamentary Inquiry into the World Health Organization's Amendments to the International Health Regulations

As a concerned Australian, I am writing to respectfully request your attention and consideration regarding an issue of paramount importance— the recent and proposed changes to the International Health Regulations as put forth by the World Health Organization (WHO).

The changes will impact Australia's response to international health crises and could change the nature of the relationship between Australia and the WHO.

As well, the deadline to reject the WHO's recent changes to the International Health Regulations is fast approaching; this being 1 December 2023.

The deadline for input into the future proposed changes to the International Health Regulations is mid-January 2024 and, while the initial proposed changes are known, the WHO negotiations on those changes are being held in secret and without public input.

As such, a parliamentary inquiry into these changes is of utmost importance. Such an inquiry would provide a platform for thorough examination, allowing diverse perspectives to be heard and ensuring transparency and accountability in the decision-making process. 

A parliamentary inquiry would allow for a comprehensive evaluation of these proposed changes, taking into consideration the perspectives of experts, stakeholders, and everyday Australians.

It is imperative that the general public has an opportunity to participate in shaping the policies that impact our lives, especially those emanating from unelected distant organisations such as the WHO. This can only happen via a Parliamentary Inquiry.

I kindly request that the Parliamentary Joint Standing Committee on Treaties initiate a parliamentary inquiry into the World Health Organization's recent and proposed International Health Regulation changes. By doing so, you would demonstrate a commitment to democratic values and provide an avenue for meaningful public input.

Yours faithfully,

[Your Name]
