Upper House Votes Soon On Zero Oversight Pandemic Powers For WA
Please tell your MPs to redirect McGowan’s draconian bill to an upper house committee for close examination, before we lose all democratic accountability and fundamental human rights.
Premier Mark McGowan has said that he is bringing an end to the “State of Emergency”.
But our Premier is renewing draconian powers for another two years to continue enforced mask mandates, involuntary “quarantine”, or more involuntary medical procedures.
The “Temporary COVID-19 Provisions” are “more radical”, “merely a state of emergency under another name” and “are actually worse,” according to Nick Goiran MLC.
Former WA Police Commissioner Karl O’Callaghan has similarly slammed this bill as “lazy” and an attempt to avoid accountability.
The bill gives Covid officers powers over ‘prevention, control and abatement of risks associated with Covid (including, without limitation, risks to economic and psychosocial wellbeing).’
The “psychosocial”, feelings-based justification potentially legally underpins medically-unjustified mandates or restrictions across the whole state or a state-wide industry.
The provision, “any action necessary”, appears to leave legal room for entry of a private residence without a warrant, and forced injections.
Disclosure of information or orders to comply will be free of any criminal or civil liability, even if the covid officers or police officers act wrongfully towards a person.
Please send an email to your MPs to redirect this draconian bill to an upper house committee for close examination, before we lose all democratic accountability and fundamental human rights.
