Dear Warren, (Letters 14/10) the COVID-19 restrictions you said were minor and temporary, are in fact major and permanent: ‘Liberty lost in the “war on covid” will not be voluntarily returned when the Coronavirus threat ends’ – US Senator Ron Paul.

There will be new, permanent restrictions, like the Health Pass: already issued in Ireland.

The right to protest was a major freedom, that right is now gone: there is no vaccine against tyranny. Now that the WHO admits that ‘lockdowns cause more harm than good’ (I) and 34,000 Scientists and Doctors oppose COVID Lockdowns (K), how can we still support them? As Edinburgh University COVID-19 study (E) lead author, Professor Graeme Ackland wrote: ‘shutting down society is unlikely to reduce overall deaths’ and ‘the focus should be on shielding the elderly and vulnerable’.

A new Oxfam report says restrictions may eventually kill more people than the virus itself, you don’t want that do you? (H). The COVID-19 crisis is being used to bypass democratic accountability, to override opposition and to try to implement the WEF’s ‘Great Reset’, where ‘You own nothing and are happy’.

A: Government insider calls out Victoria’s ‘police state’ tactics

B: Coronavirus lockdowns ‘may kill MORE than herd immunity strategy does’C: Now 12,000 scientists and medics have signed anti-lockdown petition

D: Worldometer

E: Effect of school closures

F: The Commons Project

G: Defence Legislation Amendment (Enhancement of Defence Force Response to Emergencies) Bill 2020

H: Abrupt Earth Changes

I: No vaccine for tyranny 

J: World Health Organisation opposes lockdown

K: Scientists and doctors opposing lockdown

Support The Echo

If you can spare a few dollars a week – or maybe more – we would appreciate all the support you are able to give to keep the voice of independent, local journalism alive.


  1. Ron Paul tea party looney. That says it all about this letter. Really restrictions causing more deaths- I think you need to look at what’s happening in the US.
