Philippines Supreme Court has Responded on May 2022 TRO Case, Petitioners to Submit Response on 20 Feb 2023. SB No. 1869 "CDC Bill" Updates. MSM: Natural Infection As Good As/Better Than Vaccination.
The Philippines 1987 Constitution enshrines the right of Filipinos to participate in all levels of social, political and economic decision-making. EDSA Revolution Anniversary events planned.
Much has been happening in the Philippines the past week taking my time and attention from this substack. I cannot report on all of it yet but will in due course.
Here are some critical updates on the covid-19 front, and the local Philippines situation as many concerned parties here work to raise consciousness and spur actions on SB1869, which could remove Philippines Sovereignty and hand it to the WHO via the IHRs, and which could also pave the way for Medical Martial Law. Please read on for updates……
For all Filipinos reading this, please be brave. Stand up now for our Nation, for our children, for our future! Understand that this issues and stakes have extended far beyond Covid-19! Please share!
Update on Supreme Court TRO Case Against Covid-19 Vaccination
The petitioners calling for certiorari, prohibition, and mandamus with a prayer for temporary restraining order against vaccines, filed last 12th May 2022, received a response from the supreme court. They were given 10 days, non-extendable, to submit their reply. The petitioners’ legal team will be filing their response tomorrow, on 20th February 2023, meeting the set deadline. A copy of the original petition is accessible here for interested parties. I will update on the response as soon as more information is available.
Updates on and Planned Actions Against Senate Bill No. 1869 (prior version was HB6522)
The Act may be downloaded, here. Link to the Senate 19th Congress, here. The Bill is pending second reading. It is a priority bill of the President and is being rushed for approval.
I have previously discussed concerns with this bill in this substack and will discuss further in coming days. In short, the bill sets up a Philippines CDC to centralize and coordinate all aspects of Philippines the health-care system including system infrastructure and health-care related research, which is commendable. However, this bill also covers special authorities and permissible actions in the case of any broadly declared health emergency, which could be declared in response to both communicable and non-communicable diseases. In the case of a declared public health emergency the Philippines CDC will be answerable to the WHO under its IHRs, the President will be given essentially unlimited powers [Section 12 Special Powers of the President ends with f) perform such other functions and activities, as deemed necessary], public and private resources can be sequestered, citizens can be tracked and traced and detained, and health commodities can be expedited by-passing normal protocols, and mandated! The experience of the past 3 years, unfortunately, does not engender confidence on the benevolence of government and public health authorities.
Protests, position statements, and public responses are being organized by various concerned local groups and individuals.
Covid Call to Humanity (CCH) will have an Emergency Broadcast public seminar this evening 7:30 to 8:30 pm Manila Time. Rumble link.
The CDCPH group has also focused on this bill for the past several huddles and new public statements are being prepared (FB page, Rumble - Feb 4, Feb 11, Feb 18). Anyone can join the weekly Saturday night huddles on zoom, FB, twitter, and rumble.
CCH are organizing a gathering in front of the Senate Building in NCR on Monday 20th February 2023 (tomorrow) from 2pm to 7pm to show stand against the bill. Participants are asked to bring a candle. Any of my readers in Manila, please consider sharing this information and joining. CCH website.
I will report on and provide more information on events as and when they become available. Actions are being planned across the nation for Saturday 25th February 2023.
Sovereignty When It Suits?
It is curious that the president is taking a strong stand against intrusions on natural sovereignty with regards to territorial issues (South China Sea tensions between China and the Philippines) and with regards to the ICC probe over the Duterte Drug War. Yet, there is apparently no concern with sovereignty related to SB1896 and the potential for mass interference by the WHO into Philippines affairs!
People Power in the Philippines - EDSA 1 & 2, EDSA Revolution Anniversary 25th February
The Philippines has a recent history of two major people power events where incumbent presidents were ousted. These are referred as EDSA 1 (Ferdinand Marcos) and EDSA 2 (Joseph Estrada), named after the major thoroughfare (Epifanio de los Santos Avenue) where both of these mostly peaceful revolution events took place. Below is the People Power Monument, built to commemorate 1986 people power movement.
The EDSA Revolution Anniversary is marked by a public holiday every 25th February. During this anniversary people wear yellow, attend church, and may attend commemoratory activities. It may also be marked by peaceful protests. This year there will be freedom protests and convoys against SB No. 1869.
International Breaking News: MSM Reporting that Natural Immunity is Superior to Vaccination Immunity
Finally, MSM are reporting on a study (here, NBC News) which has confirmed what many in the natural health and non-mainstream medical communities have been saying since 2020! Natural immunity is superior to vaccine immunity!
Many MSM outlets are featuring this February 16, 2023 Lancet Paper, which reported on a 19-country 65-study Lancet meta-analysis and concluded that natural infection resulted in strong and enduring protection from severe disease for all subsequent variants.
Interesting that the article was funded by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. Or maybe totally predicable, considering that Gates, after profiting royally from mRNA stocks then dumped them.
Gates changed his tune to speak disparagingly of them.
Times, and the narrative, certainly change!
Confirmation that natural immunity is superior, coming on the heels of the Fauci study, reported here, which stated clearly that vaccines were not effective for respiratory viruses, along with the devastating harms, and computed vaccine dose fatality rates (vDRF) being calculated by Rancourt et al, this should be the death knoll for the Covid-19 Injectables.
Meanwhile, UK have already stopped booster vaccines for all healthy persons under 50 years of age.
Vergeire Facing Graft Charges
In other news, all is not smooth sailing for DOH OIC Vergeire, who wants to be Health Secretary, but is now facing graft charges of allocation of cancer funds. Of course highly positioned persons can readily attract cases, so it remains to see how this case prospers and whether it affects her secretarial aspirations.
The Philippines 1987 Constitution Enshrines the Right of Filipinos to Participate at All Levels of Decision-Making - Time to Exercise that Right!
The Philippines Constitution provides for the people’s participation at all levels of government decision-making. This is covered under Article XIII, Section 16, 1987 Philippine Constitution.
Never has there been a more important time for the people to exercise their power; to understand what is being proposed, and have their say in the decisions that their government is making; particularly now on SB No. 1869. Stand up! Be informed! Be Brave! Be Vocal!
