Robert F Kennedy Jr is a font of articulated intelligence as usual, in this discussion with fellow Democrat and “new media” journalist, Kim Iversen. “Once you start doing censorship, you are on the slippery slope to totalitarianism. One of the things I’d ask members of the press and people who are supporting censorship, is can you name any time in human history when, looking back, you believe that the censors were the good guys? The censors are always the villains. If you’re advocating censorship today, the chances are that you’re involved in some great villainy. Even if you believe your intentions are correct. They may be, but your actions are villainous“.
Protecting Freedoms Against Ongoing Potential Pandemics and a New Science Advisor

The Siracusa Principles
“One of the main instruments employed by governments to repress and deny the fundamental rights and freedoms of peoples has been the illegal and unwarranted Declaration of Martial Law or a State of Emergency”.
A global epidemic of national emergencies during the 1970s gave rise to many “security states” in which dictators used the excuse of “protecting the public good” to maintain illegitimate power, suppress opposition and violate the rights and freedoms of individuals. This was the impetus for a group of distinguished international law experts to convene in Siracusa, Italy, in 1984, where they penned a document known in short as the Siracusa Principles. These principles recognise that protection of human rights and freedoms is a fundamental basis for ensuring national security and international peace; and for advancing community development.
Today the rights and freedoms of citizens across the globe have been and continue to be eroded in the name of protecting public health. Again, lessons in history are useful in order to understand the motivations and methods being used by those in positions of power.
WHO Warn of Potential Avian Influenza H5N1 (Bird Flu) Pandemic
On 8 February 2023 Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, the Director-General of the World Health Organisation (WHO), announced a “recent spillover into mammals” of H5N1 Avian Influenza, which has circulated amongst birds and poultry since 1996. He claimed that whilst the risk to humans is currently low, the situation needs to be monitored, recommending that countries “strengthen surveillance in settings where humans and farmed or wild animals interact“. Supplies of antivirals and vaccines are being prepared “for global use“.
This might sound fair and sensible, but forewarnings from many medical experts and political analysts suggest that in fact, the WHO Global Influenza Surveillance and Response System may be a useful weapon to perpetuate the ongoing fear and human rights abuses experienced globally since March 2020. A convergence of historical and current day events supports this possibility.
Between 2003-2009 preparations for an H5N1 Avian influenza pandemic cost governments billions of dollars in antivirals, emergency drills and developing strategies for tighter border controls. This is despite the accumulation of evidence, found within WHO’s own documents, that restrictions on human freedoms such as border screening activities and border closures, are of no benefit as public health interventions. It also flies in the face of billions across the world living without access to safe water, adequate nutrition, shelter, education or income, all of which contribute in multiple and complex ways to rampant ill health experienced by the world’s most vulnerable.

Jeremy Farrar: New Chief Scientist at WHO
In December 2022 it was announced that Sir Jeremy Farrar will join WHO as their Chief Scientist in the second quarter of 2023, after stepping down as Director of the UK’s Wellcome Trust in February 2023 where he has worked for the past ten years. Prior to that he spent from 1996 to 2013 as Director of the Oxford University Clinical Research Unit at the Hospital for Tropical Diseases in Ho Chi Minh, Vietnam, a partner organisation with Wellcome Trust.
Amidst multiple concerns about Farrar’s new appointment with WHO is his role as a key architect of human rights abuses during the Covid pandemic. He promoted restrictions on freedoms such as lockdowns (including praise for China and appeals to the World Health Organisation), masking and mass vaccinations, and he has documented involvement in transhumanist research.
His history has been scrutinised by investigative journalists Whitney Webb and Johnny Vedmore, who discussed Farrar at length on episode 46 of the podcast Unlimited Hangout. Of relevance to the recent warning from WHO about H5N1 Avian influenza is Farrar’s dubious behaviour in Vietnam in January 2004, where he championed the idea of a looming pandemic avian influenza which never eventuated.
The story behind the 2004 “bird flu pandemic” related to two siblings burying, digging up and re-burying a dead duck. One of them subsequently developed vaguely described influenza-like symptoms which Farrar’s team insisted, against other expert advice, was H5N1 avian influenza. Imperial College’s notorious fearmongering mathematics modeler Professor Neil Ferguson predicted 150 million deaths following the bid for attention as a potential pandemic.
Ultimately, according to Farrar in a 2009 interview, there were a total of 243 H5N1-attributed deaths. Vedmore states that Farrar’s research has focused on the same infrastructure used fraudulently during Covid, such as PCR testing. The “bird flu” pandemic was aggressively promoted by the Bush administration, and it was claimed that the only medical counter-measure was the antiviral Oseltamivir (Tamiflu). This resulted in monumental sales of the drug for Gilead, leading to a financial windfall for then-Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld, who was heavily invested in the company.
Added to this is evidence from the so-called “Fauci Emails” obtained by a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit filed by BuzzFeed News, which show that Farrar had an official role at WHO as early as February 2020, to “to act as the Board’s focal point on the COVID-19 outbreak, to represent and advise the board on the science of the outbreak and the financing of the response“. He had also previously chaired the WHO scientific advisory group. These established connections were absent from the WHO December press release about Farrar’s new position as Chief Scientist.
Farrar co-authored the February 2020 Lancet article strongly condemning “conspiracy theories suggesting that COVID-19 does not have a natural origin“. His collusions with Anthony Fauci in the cover-up of the lab-origins of Covid are explained in detail in the January 2023 article NIH Emails Show Fauci Facilitated Lab-Origin Coverup! and February 2023 Children’s Health Defense article Is the COVID Lab Leak Cover-Up on the Verge of Collapse?
He also has numerous and diverse pharmaceutical industry conflicts of interest.
This all points towards someone with dubious scientific principles and multiple conflicts of interest, who is about to hold an inordinate amount of power within WHO. Simultaneously WHO are implementing plans to establish unelected legally binding powers over all nation states.
What Can We Do?
- Learn the ethical principles of public health in order to understand the breaches taking place (see below).
- Learn about the Siracusa Principles (see below).
- Learn about the real risks of pandemics and animal-to-human infections, which are extremely uncommon (eg public health physician and infectious disease expert Dr David Bell; physician and biological warfare expert Dr Meryl Nass).
- Optimise your own health so you are not ruled by fear when the next pandemic is announced.
- Talk about the issue with friends, family, colleagues and anyone who will listen.
- Contact your MP (in person is best; writing letters also helps) and argue the case for New Zealand to exit from the World Health Organisation.
- Ring talkback radio to discuss the issue.
