World Council for Health Calls for an Immediate Stop to the Covid-19 Experimental “Vaccines”


Globally renowned experts, including Dr. Paul Alexander, Dr. Byram Bridle, Dr. Geert Vanden Bossche, Prof. Dolores Cahill, and Drs. Sucharit Bhakdi, Ryan Cole, Richard Fleming, Robert W. Malone, Peter McCullough, Mark Trozzi, Michael Yeadon, Wolfgang Wodarg, and Vladimir Zelenko, among many others, consistently warn the world about the adverse effects resulting from Covid-19 experimental injections; they also warn about their longterm effects, which cannot be known at this time since most clinical trials will be not completed until 2023, and some as late as 2025.

In June 2021, Dr. Tess Lawrie, co-founder of the World Council for Health and member of the Council’s Steering Committee, courageously described the global crisis and called for urgent action: “There is now more than enough evidence on the [UK] Yellow Card system to declare the COVID-19 vaccines unsafe for use in humans. Preparation should be made to scale up humanitarian efforts to assist those harmed by the COVID-19 vaccines and to anticipate and ameliorate medium to longer term effects.”

Phase Contrast, Dark Field, Bright Field Microscopy, Transmission and Scanning Electron Microscopy and Energy-Dispersive X-ray Spectroscopy Reveal the Ingredients in the CoV-19 Vaccines!


Currently there are four major pharmaceutical companies who manufacture a SARS-CoV-2 now called SARS-CoV-19 vaccine. These manufactures and their vaccine are Pfizer--BioNTech mRNA Vaccine, the Moderna-Lonza mRNA-1273 Vaccine, the Serum Institute Oxford Astrazeneca Vaccine and the Janssen COVID -19 Vaccine, manufactured by Janssen Biotech Inc., a Janssen Pharmaceutical Company of Johnson & Johnson, a recombinant, replication-incompetent adenovirus type 26 expressing the SARS-CoV-2 spike protein. The intended purpose of these vaccines are to provide immunity from the so-called infectious novel coronavirus or SARS-CoV - 2 virus now called the SARS-CoV - 19. These four pharmaceutical companies have not provided complete FDA disclosure on their vaccine box, insert fact sheet or label for many of the major and/or minor ingredients contained within these so-called vaccines. The purpose of this research article is to identify those specific major and minor ingredients contained in the Pfizer Vaccine, the Moderna Vaccine, the Astrazeneca Vaccine and the Janssen Vaccine using various scientific anatomical, physiological and functional testing for each SARS-COV-2-19 vaccine.

UPDATE 03. November 2021: Ethiopia heads towards civil war, Tigray forces advance further south + Ethiopia faces nationwide emergency; authorities order strict measures like curfew, road closure + Why is Ethiopia at war with itself?

Prologue: As predicted, Abiy of Abyssinia (Primeminister of the fake Ethiopia - the real Ethiopia is in Sudan) used the so-called 'Peace-Prize' - set out by Alfred Nobel who made his fortune by producing gun-powders and dynamite - to blindfold the world, fool the 'Ethiopians' and make war. The former intelligence officer turned polit-actor, who had already the blood of many Oromo, their refugees and other dissidents on his hands under the former regime, added now the blood of thousands of innocent people from Tigray and of those Amhara, whom he uses as cannon-fodder.

The installed poster-boy of the New World Order in Ethiopia, Abiy Ahmed Ali, failed miserably and seeks now as his only way out 'martyrdom' to which he also wants to compel brainwashed Ethiopian Youth, who he wants to follow his insane call to arms. If he survives, Abiy Ahmed himself is responsible for the massive number of dead and injured and must also be held personally liable for the refugee crisis he caused as a burden to the international community as well as for the plight and the losses incurred by thousands of refugees, who fled into the little safety, which Sudan and Kenya have to offer. Abiy Ahmed must be removed as fast as possible from any power to avert the cruel and senseless bloodshed in Ethiopia and kept in a safe lockup at the ICC - to await trial and also to prevent self-harm.

The U.S. 'Go Brandon' governance pays only lip service to the atrocities and secretly still funds Abiy Ahmed – adding to the bloodshed, because the U.S. eyes the oil- and gas-deals and the country hosts the largest U.S. drone base in the region, which the American hawks don't risk losing. The U.N. had its humanitarian staff expelled and is like always tooth-less, while the international community - incl. Germany, which provided hardware incl. arms to what they call the 'state police' of the police-state - just couldn't bother less. Appealing to all sides to remain calm and to do otherwise nothing is just the response needed to escalate the conflict into a regional war in the Horn of Africa. Is that what the globalist UN wants to then even further enlarge the UN army of useless 'peace'-keepers at the cost of global taxpayers? The roadmap to real peace, on the other hand, is still the true independence of the real nation states like Oromiya, Ogadenia, Amhara as well as Tigray and of the smaller First Nations, which were packed together into the so-called 'Southern Nations State', whereby each of them from a position of pacified and independent nations can then decide on and arrange for peaceful cooperation with neighbours and as sovereign states with the world. Hopefully this time the traitors in all the camps, who always and on the order of their foreign masters split their own people with the power-hungry vision of becoming the 'central government' in Addis Ababa - de facto located in Oromo territory - for all the other nations of the present-day Federal Ethiopia or being in it, will not succeed. Abiy Ahmed Ali, however, must be brought to trial for crimes against humanity, war crimes, genocide as well as ecocide in the case of the many environmental crimes he committed by ordering or not restraining his troops from burning down forests e.g. in the Bale mountains at the heart of Oromiya, the heart of the land of the Oroomo peope, and dense bush-land of the mountains in Tigray as well as elsewhere - all assumed to be 'rebel' hideouts. Meanwhile the U.S. embassy in Addis Ababa already allowed some staff to leave Ethiopia on a voluntary basis. France, Germany and Turkey have told their citizens to leave. With the kidnapping of a businessman from Tigray, who was abducted in Nairobi, Kenya, Abyi Ahmed allegedly collects now hostages as pawns for his personal safety. Joe Biden's envoy Jeffrey Feltman only poured oil into the fire of the conflict, while the peace seeking attempts of several players did not achieve anything, because Abiy Ahmed remains stubborn and doesn't want to leave the country in peace.

Ethiopia declares state of emergency as rebels threaten capita

By Yacob Reyes - 03. November 2021

Ethiopia declared a state of emergency on Tuesday as rival forces from the northern region of Tigray move toward the capital, per AP.

Why it matters: It's the latest escalation of a yearlong civil war that threatens to tear apart Africa's second-most populous country and has killed thousands of citizens.

  • The state of emergency is effective immediately and is slated to last about six months, according to AP.

  • Under the state of emergency, Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed can impose curfews, order citizens into military service and restrict the news media.

See the source imagePROLOGUE: Governments and UNHCR proof to be increasingly impotent to deliver durable, humane solutions - be it in Bangladesh, in Greece, in Turkey, in Egypt, in DRC, in NigerSouth Africa or Kenya. The media reports on the closure of the camps in Kenya caused panic in the two largest refugee camps Kakuma and Dadaab, since they spoke of the closure of the facilities and refugee settlements within two weeks, while in reality the 14-day deadline was given by the Interior Ministry to UNHCR to present a plan for the orderly closure of the camps. A plan for a durable solution is indeed long overdue. However, such should not add additional distress to the already difficult lives of destitute refugees, left starving with reduced rations in the harsh lands of Northern Kenya. Meanwhile UNHCR in Nairobi pays a "Diplomatic Police" unit and brutal security guards from at least controversial G4S to protect them from desperate refugees at their closed offices and instigate to arrest genuine and registered refugees as well as asylum seekers, who want to ask UNHCR just the one simple question: WHY ARE YOU NOT HELPING? The arrested refugees have no means to legally challenge these atrocities, since even the UNHCR funding for legal aid to refugees via the organizaton Kituo cha Sharia reportedly has dried up. But even under the earlier arrangement refugees could not get real legal help in Kenya, if they don't have money to pay lawyers. In the face of all these tribulations any further suicide at the doorsteps of UNHCR and panic in the camps must be averted by all means.

In Kakuma, from where refugees are flown out to third countries of asylum, a racket is investigated, which allegedly only tested families, who have been granted asylum elsewhere, as 'COVID-19-NEGATIVE', if they paid bribes, while others already form a huge backlog of refugees not being allowed to travel to their new destinations. IOM (International Organization for Migration) - the UN's refugee and migrant travel agency - is in charge of the COVID testing and is using the opportunity to also introduce new and unapproved tests in the exercise. "IOM must be told that refugees are no guinea-pigs," a family father of four told a gathering of refugees in Dadaab, who are all healthy, but likewise had several and contradicting COVID test-results holding them back. "In addition, refugees demand that an independent oversight is installed to countercheck the numerous forced vaccinations refugees are given before they can travel. They have no means to get an independent opinion and are forced to give their uninformed consent, since otherwise they will not fly to freedom. This amounts at present to forced inoculations with experimental drugs - like the mRNA 'vaccines' - constituting a violation of the Nuremberg Code."

Mission Impossible:

UNHCR given 14-day ultimatum to close Dadaab, Kakuma camps

Refugees in Kenya shall be ripped off even this meagre existance, if some government officials get it their way. 

By Citizen Reporter - 24 . March 2021

In Summary

  • In May 2016, Kenya announced its plans to close the world’s largest refugee camp, Dadaab, saying it had been infiltrated by terrorist cells.
  • In August that year, some refugees who had left Dadaab were stranded near the Somali border after authorities in Jubaland refused to receive them.
  • In November 2016, the Government bowed to international pressure and said it would delay the closure of the camps.
  • In February 2017, a Kenyan court said it would be unconstitutional for the government to close a sprawling refugee camp.
  • Two years later, Kenya ordered the closure of Dadaab refugee camp by the middle of the year.

It has been reported that a disease outbreak in Wuhan / China is caused by a corona virus and it is spreading fast. The way it plays out it appears to evolve in a similar way as the hyped Swine-flu epidemic in the year 2009 that showed the world the powerful players behind the scenes of such man-made catastrophes.

The information you receive through the mainstream media and governmental officials is in our opinion as fake as it was during the planned H1n1 epidemic, which was found out to be a total hoax with criminal intent.

The pathogen of the 2019 novel coronavirus (2019-nCoV) disease vector is called now SARS-CoV-2 has been declared as a 'pandemic', while the Coronavirus disease (called now COVID-19) is spreading worldwide.

We assume that it is the next step in a kind of biological, asymmetric, hybrid and hidden warfare, targeting in cohorts with governments, corporations - specifically the rackets of big finance, the corporate supply chain, the global Pharma and food industry, specific strata of populations - with a respiratory disease, that can be deadly (like the flu) to some - especially the elderly and those with other ailments - if wrongly treated, which is often the case in hospitals, or if left untreated.

Billionaire wants to revitalise the environment by blocking Sun - Stop this crazy old white man and his supporters!

By: Jack Murphy - 28. December 2020

Billionaire Bill Gates is quietly moving forward with a controversial plan to dim the sun's rays, according to reports.

The plan is reportedly an effort to save the human race by helping to revitalize the dimming the sun?

The Western Journal's Douglas Golden wrote:

"While you may have been paying attention to [Gates'] efforts on vaccination and lockdowns, you may not have noticed that one of Gates' most controversial causes just got a go-ahead: A project that would help block out the sun."

The Harvard geoengineering project, largely funded by Gates, "plans to test out a controversial theory that global warming can be stopped by spraying particles into the atmosphere that would reflect the sun's rays."

Kenya’s Indigenous Ogiek partner with government rangers to restore Mau Forest

By  - 24. November 2021

  • The Ogiek people of Kenya have for more than a century faced eviction from their ancestral lands in the Mau Forest, on which they have long depended for their material and cultural needs.
  • Three years ago, some community members decided to start working with the Kenyan Forest Service to restore the forest complex and promote conservation coupled with sustainable livelihoods such as beekeeping.
  • Today, using this biocultural approach, volunteer community members have planted more than 60,000 native trees in four different blocs within the forest, including the endangered parasol tree (Polyscias kikuyuensis) and African cherry tree (Prunus Africana).
  • The KFS has been relying on Ogiek knowledge of the terrain and geography of the forest to provide intelligence on the routes used by illegal loggers and those starting forest fires.

NAKURU COUNTY, Kenya — For Joseph Lesingo, a member of the Indigenous Ogiek community, observing the regeneration of previously degraded sections of the Mau Forest has been one of the most fulfilling moments in the past five years.

Facebook, Google business models a 'threat to human rights': Amnesty report

Google and Facebook are evil - it is the users who have to stay away from them, because legislators are too slow and easily bribed. Google and LinkedIn are owned by Alphabet/Microsoft (ex Bill Gates) and Facebook by Mark Zuckerberg.

By jcg/stb (Reuters, AP) - 21. Novmber 2019

Amnesty International said in a report that Facebook and Google's "surveillance-based business model" is inherently incompatible with the right to privacy. The NGO urged governments to take action.

Amnesty International in a report has said tech giants Facebook and Google should be forced to abandon what it calls a "surveillance-based business model" that is ''predicated on human rights abuse.''

"Despite the real value of the services they provide, Google and Facebook's platforms come at a systemic cost," the human rights group said in its 60-page report SURVEILLANCE GIANTS: HOW THE BUSINESS MODEL OF GOOGLE AND FACEBOOK THREATENS HUMAN RIGHTS published on Thursday.

On June 22, 2001, a group of well-known U.S. officials and a handful of senior policymakers gathered at Andrews Air Force Base in Maryland for a senior-level exercise that simulated a biological weapons attack—an outbreak of deadly smallpox—on the United States.

Designed by the Johns Hopkins Center for Civilian Biodefense Strategies (now called the Center for Health Security) and the Washington-based Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS), the day-and-a-half-long “Dark Winter” simulation was conducted to gauge how senior leaders would respond to such an attack and included such high-level participants as Sen. Sam Nunn (who played the president), former White House advisor David Gergen (the national security advisor), and the retired career diplomat Frank Wisner (the secretary of state).

But Operation Dark Winter has since become legendary in senior policymaking circles in Washington for a different reason: It has regularly been cited by its designers and participants as the clearest exhibit of the spiraling stresses, and potential social collapse, that could be sparked by a public health crisis.

A tale of two pandemics: the true cost of Covid in the global south

While the rich nations focus on booster jabs and returning to the office, much of the world is facing devastating second-order coronavirus effects. Now is the time to build a fairer, more responsible international system for the future

By  - 23. November 2021

For the past year and a half, people everywhere have been in the grip of a pandemic – but not necessarily the same one. In the affluent world, a viral respiratory disease, Covid-19, suddenly became a leading cause of death. In much of the developing world, by contrast, the main engine of destruction wasn’t this new disease, but its second-order effects: measures they took, and we took, in response to the coronavirus. Richer nations and poorer nations differ in their vulnerabilities.

Whenever I talk with members of my family in Ghana, Nigeria and Namibia, I’m reminded that a global event can also be a profoundly local one. Lives and livelihoods have been affected in these places very differently from the way they have in Europe or the US. That’s true in the economic and educational realm, but it’s true, too, in the realm of public health. And across all these realms, the stakes are often life or death.
