Human Rights and all aspects of Health and Wellbeing
Mass protests happened today in London and Berlin for Freedom, Human Rights and an end to excessive lockdowns and restrictions.
It is abundantly clear that ongoing responses to Covid are harming and hurting millions more lives than they are saving and helping. The original “slow the spread” and “flatten the curve” has turned into 6 months of businesses destroyed, jobs lost, people unable to pay their rent or mortgages, struggling to put food on the table, mental health support lines and counsellors inundated, domestic violence up, self harm up, suicides up, anxiety, stress and depression up, families separated because they can’t leave one state or country to go to another, people dying alone, family members not able to say goodbye or be there as their parent, child, spouse or sibling takes their last breath, schools closed, a long list of restrictions for those that are open, Victorians prevented from leaving their homes more than once a day, and only for an hour within 5km, mandatory face coverings even if walking on a beach alone, even if it is causing breathing difficulties or emotional trauma, the list goes on.
The impact of these ongoing, excessive restrictions on people (including our children), on a psychological level, on physical, mental and emotional health, on basic human rights, or even basic human decency, is currently immeasurable and, history will show, in many cases criminal.
We can’t continue in this unsustainable way with no sustainable exit plan being provided.
There are many ways to protect our personal and collective physical health without leaving behind a trail of psychological and social destruction. It doesn’t have to be an either/or situation.
It is time to stand united for ALL aspects of human health and life.
