QLD MPs Call for AVN’s Billboard to be Removed

What part of Freedom of Political Speech (guaranteed by several High Court decisions) don’t these two prime examples of Australian political life not understand?
The combined message from The Hon. Stirling Hinchliffe MP, State Labor Member for Sandgate and Minister for Local Government, Racing and Multicultural Affairs and Bart Mellish, MP, Labor Member for Aspley is as follows:
This Billboard Has Got to Go!
This anti-vaccine billboard on Beams Road has got to go!
Just in the week when we’ve seen success of the HPV vaccine confirmed by Queensland clinician scientist Professor Ian Frazer, we’ve got “anti-vaxers” pushing the message that somehow if you’re unvaccinated you could be healthier.
Everyone is entitled to their own opinion but you’re not entitled to your own facts.
To remind everyone once again about the exact wording on the AVN’s billboard in question, here it is below:
Now, we want to ask you the obvious question (at least, obvious to most thinking people), how is this an anti-vaccine message? In fact, all this billboard does is ask a simple question – one which the AVN has been asking the government to answer for decades now.
But based on these gentleman’s words, there will now be a strong attempt to censor our message and take this billboard down.
We need your help urgently!
We are asking each one of you reading this now to take the following actions straight away. This should not take you more than 2 minutes, and if everyone does this, we will protect our freedom of speech and may even help to inform these public servants about the reasons why this question needs to be asked – and answered.

All you need to say is something along these lines:
I support freedom of political speech in Australia and therefore, I ask that no attempt be made to remove the AVN’s billboard which is currently installed in Carseldine, QLD. And then sign with you name and contact details.
By all means, if you would like to share more information (for instance, if you have a family member who was injured by vaccines or you have some pertinent studies or data about vaccine risks or ineffectiveness, feel free to include that.)
Be respectful! Stay on point. And send your letters today because a decision can be made very quickly about taking this Billboard down and that would be a real shame! If at all possible, send a copy of your communication to the AVN atavnenquiries@avn.org.au.
Feel free to share this email newsletter with your friends and associates as well. The more people who take this action, the better for everyone.
Yours in health,
Meryl Dorey,
AVN President and founder

  1. It’s not about weather the billboard is pro or anti vaccination.
    These 2 politicians – Hinchliffe & Mellish are about
    1. Beating their preverbially hairy chests in public in “it’s a man’s world” fashion.
    Their 15 minutes of fame.
    2. Also showing showing ….. avn.org.au ….. who’s boss.

    What I’m wondering is who put them up to it ??
    * Their PR mob = their Spin Doctors ??
    * Or were they asked by the Translational Research Institute ??
    And there for is the credibility of the TRI in question ??
    These vaccines have destroyed so many lives all around the world. If it were to be found that these vaccines were ‘faulty/at fault’ ……
    THE COMPENSATION PAYOUT WOULD BE PHENOMENAL
    It would destroy the credibility of Q’land University the TRI just for starters.
    This Gardasil vaccine fiasco is as big as the thalidomide tragedy ever was.

  2. I used to write to Bob Katter a few years ago –
    Oh yes,
    I wrote regularly for about 9 months.
    His answering machine would dutifully reply & within minutes, acknowledging my email.
    We actually built up a good relationship, the instant response acknowledgement machine & I.
    Bob Katter is only a figment of our imagination – a noise hologram they roll out every now & then to make us believe that he was a living human being.

  3. The Honorable Peter Khalil MP Labor member for Wills –
    Raymond, the mobility scooter champion of Coburg told me that he had attended the Great Mans Office in Munro St Coburg. ( we nearly collided & struck up a conversation as a result. )
    Oh yes !!
    He was snubbed & ignored –
    Imagine that if you will.
    He told me that the office was staffed by young university students.
    The next Federal election is coming soon – I will vote Lib’s.
