Say No To Vaccination Passports: Two Petitions To Sign

Editorial note: Now that Petition EN2626 is closed, we have updated this article to include a new petition.

~~~

Yes, there is a lot of misinformation circulating online about the COVID-19 vaccines. But the question of vaccination passports is another issue entirely. It’s possible to be very confident in the COVID-19 vaccines while still being strongly opposed to governments making them mandatory for travel, work and civil life. Here, we draw your attention to two petitions you can sign to say no to mandatory COVID-19 vaccinations.

Vaccine Passports: No Way

The first is Canberra Declaration’s own petition, entitled Vaccine Passports: No Way. We created this due to the overwhelming response to this article and to the now-closed Petition EN2626. The new Canberra Declaration petition reads:

A civilised and democratic nation like Australia must not compel its own people to undertake a medical procedure, or divulge private medical data, just to maintain their longstanding freedoms. Travelling domestically, returning from overseas, and accessing jobs, services, sports and social events must not be made contingent on a vaccine passport.

The sanctity of life and the freedom of conscience are non-negotiable human rights. If we abandon these, the social fabric of Australian society will be seriously weakened, to our personal and collective detriment.

We insist on the right of all Australians to be protected from government and private incursions on our sacred rights. We speak up in defence of freedom. We say no to vaccine passports. And we call on all like-minded citizens to support and sign this petition.

George Christensen: No Vaccine Passports

The second is by George Christensen MP, the Federal Member for Dawson in Queensland, and it is called ‘No Vaccine Passports’. On his website, Christensen explains that,

Private Australian companies, state governments, other nations and international bodies are indicating they will introduce coercive measures to essentially force people to take a COVID-19 vaccine…

I will be railing against any attempt to have any vaccination passports, digital passports — whatever the label — that segregates Australians into haves and have nots and denies them jobs, denies them services, or denies them access to certain areas.

It is wrong. It is discriminatory…

There is going to be immense pressure on Australia and many other nations to comply and go down this route of vaccine passports, but we should push back for the sake of freedom.

[Sign Petition]

Civic freedoms are a core value of the Canberra Declaration. And while we invite open debate on the benefits of the various COVID-19 vaccines, we believe that it is not the role of the governments or private corporations to coerce citizens into undertaking medical treatments or divulge private medical information to third parties.

Please comment below if there are other Australian petitions you know of related specifically to vaccine passports.

    Test us. Make vaccine passports happen, and see what a revolution feels like.

    Never! This is against our freedom and should not happen in Australia.

    It is just the beginning of the mark of the beast, if you accept this then you have opened the door for the next mark for both phone & the passport can be stolen.

    Hi Everyone,
    I’m in my 70’s and remember having to get smallpox vaccination to be allowed to go overseas. Everyone had to, if they wanted to go overseas. Please help me understand why you all seem to be taking this as if it’s some kind of attempt to take our ‘freedoms’ away from us. I’m going to have my first AstraZeneca jab next week, and my reason is mainly for the sake of others, which I thought was the Christian way – to think more of the well-being of others than of myself. Also, we do need to be sensible about the national economy, which is definitely important for the well-being of all of us, and particularly the poor and underprivileged in our nation who rely on our taxes for Community Welfare programmes. So far our economy is going quite well, but we do need to get our overseas students back, as well as tourists. This isn’t going to be possible if we all reject being vaccinated.
    When Christians cry out about freedom of choice I begin to wonder if we haven’t actually lost the plot entirely. Isn’t that what the pro-abortionists cry? And those who support Euthenasia? “It’s my body, my choice!”
    I don’t want my body to be the cause of another person’s sickness or death. Freedom of choice isn’t in my opinion a very Christian ideology. It seems a tad selfish.
