If you thought the news on Friday about the lifting of mandates for NZDF and Police was amazing, we now have some more exciting news!
From The Health Forum NZ
United We Stand, the group of Defence and Police staff that successfully challenged the government on the legality of their vaccine mandates, are now challenging the government on the mandatory use of COVID Vaccination Certificates (CVC or vaccine passports) right across the board for all Kiwis.
Their core arguments include the fundamental argument that CVCs do not prevent or limit the risk of outbreak or spread of COVID-19.
United We Stand are represented by Frontline Law that are asking that the COVID-19 Public Health Response (Protection Framework) Order 2021 is either revoked or amended to remove the CVC requirement by the 4th of March 2022 or they will apply for judicial review of the Order.
As a group of Defence and Police staff, United We Stand have said that they feel it is their duty to fight for New Zealanders and their freedoms. The vaccine passport system is divisive and a huge breach of fundamental rights that isn’t justified by the increasingly questionable benefit in stopping COVID-19 spread. A promise of removing it soon is not good enough. It needs to go now!
Hold the line everyone.
