offsite link The Battle for Informed Consent Mon Apr 15, 2024 20:00 | Dr Zoë Harcombe
The NHS says informed consent requires us to be given all the information about what a treatment involves. When Dr Zoë Harcombe tried to get this info on the Covid vaccine, however, she received nothing but obfuscation.

Given the massive amount of woke bureaucracy imposed on NHS organisations by the Department of Health, it's hardly surprising that the hiring of DEI staff has been one of the fastest growing areas in our failing NHS.

MASS ANTI-WAR TRESPASS AT SHANNON WARPORT

category clare | anti-war / imperialism | feature author Sunday October 13, 2002 03:14author by IMC Editorial Group - IMC Ireland Report this post to the editors

The biggest Protest yet against the US Military use of Shannon Airport took place on Saturday 12th October. After a pretty standard protest – (some pushing and shoving at the entrance to the airport, speeches, an open mic, a funny standoff between a group of public representatives and the Police, music, chanting, a die-in) – a number of activists took down the fence marking the airport perimeter and initiated a mass Trespass on the grass beside a runway.

Lots of first hand accounts and reports from individuals and groups involved in the protest have been posted on Indymedia since the weekend and these have generated a huge level of debate centered around the mass direct action, the way the protest was organized and conducted, and the numerous arrests that took place in the course of the trespass. The event was widely reported in the mainstream media and has greatly increased public awareness of US Military use of the airport in the buildup to a possible war in Iraq.
