Welcome to the Australian censorship nightmare.
“Content unavailable in Australia. You’re unable to view this content because local laws restrict our ability to show it.”
This remarkable message is what Australian readers encountered when they tried to access an Ant-Vaccination Facebook page. A new page for Anti-Vaccination Australia has been set up HERE
Facebook is claiming it’s shutting down access to Australians only, while people outside the country can view the FB page. What “local laws” are they talking about?
The federal government of Australia is OFFICIALLY censoring speech that questions the safety and efficacy of vaccines?
Apparently so. And Facebook, known for all sorts of censorship, is going along with it.
The AVN vaxx-truth group has issued this statement:
“We warned you…Three weeks ago, we sent out a newsletter containing information about the Federal Health Minister, Greg Hunt, saying that he will be, ‘approaching some of the Australian leaders of social media outlets to ask them to take all steps to ensure that dangerous messages about immunisation are clamped down on’.”
“Two days ago, one of the FaceBook pages that has been set up to allow parents to discuss the issues of vaccine safety and effectiveness from a vaccine-critical point of view was blocked and now, can only be viewed from outside of Australia.”
“The AVN has set up a public page on MeWe which is one of the social media outlets recently established to allow free speech and privacy to remain supreme. We need to ask you all to join us there and to ask all of your friends and contacts to do the same. The only language FaceBook, Twitter and the other forums understand is numbers – so let’s take our numbers away from them.”
It sounds like Greg Hunt, Australia’s Federal Health Minister, is MAKING laws himself. Where is the piece of legislation, duly passed, that makes it acceptable for this kind of stark censorship to be coerced?
What’s next? Will FB posts that criticize censorship and Greg Hunt be blacked out?
What about posts that expose the long-standing relationship between the US and Australia re Pine Gap, the major CIA-Pentagon facility that, among other functions, spies on global internet and phone communication? Will these posts be censored?
I recently wrote a piece for The Crazz Files, an Australian website, on the alarming number of medically caused deaths in Australia. Will FB decide, in conjunction with the government, that this piece, if posted on FB, is “against local laws?”
One domino leads to another. Governments develop an appetite for deleting information. They test citizens’ reactions, and if they find only minor objections, they’re encouraged and push the envelope.
“Sir, my team came up with fifty recent articles people in our country shouldn’t read. They’re fake news, and could influence opinion in the wrong direction.”
“Good work, Smith. Black them out. We here at the Ministry of Truth are carrying out a vital mission. Don’t let people see what they shouldn’t see. It’s for their own good…”
And so it goes.
The curtain falls.
The State triumphs.
Unless the people make their voices heard at the level of a tsunami.
