More than 125,000 people in Britain have signed a petition demanding a referendum on the decision to join the World Health Organization’s so-called Pandemic Treaty.
On Sunday, the World Health Organization (WHO) will meet at the Palais des Nations in Geneva for its 75th World Health Assembly, at which every country in the world except Taiwan is invited to discuss the future of the global response to China. coronavirus and possible future pandemics.
This year’s agenda will see countries discuss the adoption of a “Pandemic Agreement,” which would further strengthen the globalist project of the United Nations when it has determined that a public health emergency has occurred, which some have warned will nullify the ability of the nation states. to determine their own course during a pandemic.
A petition in Britain has therefore called on the UK government, which has already expressed its support for the treaty, to raise the issue with the British public in the form of a referendum, going back to the idea of a Brexit referendum to secure the UK’s position. from United Kingdom. sovereignty of the European Union in 2016.
The petition, which at the time of publication has already garnered more than 127,000 signatures in just over two weeks, says: “We believe the public should be provided with the full ramifications of what and how any pandemic treaty could affect them, and receive a public vote on whether the UK should sign, before the UK government signs this.”
Under UK government rules on official petitions, since the document has a threshold of 100,000 signatures, the national Parliament is required to consider the motion for debate.
Without even engaging with the public on such a proposal, Prime Minister Boris Johnson, along with other world leaders and WHO chief Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, wrote an open letter last year calling for ratification of such a treaty.
“The primary goal of this treaty would be to foster a whole-of-government, whole-of-society approach, strengthening national, regional, and global capacities and resilience to future pandemics,” the letter said.
“This includes greatly increasing international cooperation to improve, for example, warning systems, data sharing, research, and the local, regional, and global production and distribution of public health and medical countermeasures, such as vaccines, drugs, and drugs. diagnostics and personal protective equipment. team.”
Leaders went on to call for a global “One Health” approach that “connects the health of humans, animals, and our planet,” indicating the potential expansion of public health into the realm of environmentalism.

While giving the WHO more power has found support from globalist leaders, with the EU calling for it to be legally binding, it is unclear whether the divided US Senate, or indeed the Chinese Communist Party, would allow such a treaty. be adopted.
Meanwhile, Microsoft billionaire Bill Gates, whose foundation is the largest private contributor to the WHO and second only to the United States in overall contributions, has called for a global surveillance system to be set up to supposedly monitor future virus outbreaks.
Dubbed Global Epidemic Response and Mobilization, or GERM, the organization would be made up of international “experts” tasked with identifying global health risks as well as improving coordination at the international level. Gates said the GERM surveillance team should operate outside of the WHO and receive funding to the tune of $1 billion per year.
Gates, who is currently promoting his book, How to prevent the next pandemic, he has also advocated for more funding for new, longer-lasting vaccines for the Chinese coronavirus.
“We are still at risk of this pandemic generating a variant that would be even more transmissive and even more fatal,” the billionaire said. financial time earlier this month.

In addition to questions of national sovereignty should the international treaty against the pandemic be adopted, there are also concerns that further empowerment of the WHO will only serve to bolster Communist China, another major donor to the organization.
Former member of the House of Lords in Great Britain, Viscount Matt Ridley, pointed out that in the discussion of the parameters of the proposed treaty, there was no mention of the “origin” of the Wuhan virus or the need to increase the security protocols of the labs. , despite WHO chief Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus admitting the lab leak theory is a possible explanation for the start of the pandemic.
Viscount Ridley chided the World Health Organization for not heeding early warnings of a pandemic from Taiwan, which is not recognized by the UN body at the behest of Beijing, which is demanding the independent island nation be recognized as a Chinese territory. . The WHO also initially released CCP propaganda claiming that there was no human-to-human transmission of the virus, delaying the global response to the outbreak in Wuhan.
Beijing was also one of the main sponsors of Tedros, an Ethiopian Marxist with no formal training as a doctor, to become the head of the World Health Organization.
Pointing out the dangers of a potential future lab leak, Ridley argued that instead of further empowering the WHO, his ideal “pandemic treaty” should require all governments to share genomic data on all viruses collected in nature and share the details of all the experiments. it is being done with potential pandemic pathogens (yes, even in biological warfare labs).”
