El’Tara Mahatma, Main Arm

I gratefully appreciate the diversity of speakers presenting at both Ngara and now Turning Point Talks. Max Igan’s opinions on the harmful effects of vaccines and 5G are shared by many doctors and informed people across the planet. So are his views on the very real conspiracies at work behind current events. Turning Point Talks is organised by a team of people who together decide who they will invite to talk to the local community. Dr. Liz Elliott is one of the people on the team. To single out and critcise the talks run by this wonderful woman is atrocious. Liz worked tirelessly in the emergency department at Mullumbimby hospital in service to this community for many years. She is a very generous, conscientious woman who actively has cared for many. Her participation in Ngara greatly supported the cause, energetically and financially. For anyone to insult her by criticising the Turning Point Talks is a very low call. I would hope our community would encourage proactive involvement and diversity in knowledge and opinions.
