Qantas flags COVID-19 vaccine will be a requirement for travel.
NO JAB, NO TRAVEL
International air travellers will need to prove they have been vaccinated against COVID-19 with an electronic passport, in order to board Qantas flights, the airline has announced.
Qantas boss, Alan Joyce, said the move would be “a necessity” when vaccines are available.
In an interview with Australia’s Nine Network last night, Joyce said Qantas was looking at ways of changing its terms and conditions for international travellers. This is because the industry, which ‘has been hit hard by travel restrictions’, looks at ways of moving forward:
“We will ask people to have a vaccination before they can get on the aircraft… for international visitors coming out and people leaving the country, we think that’s a necessity.”
Joyce continues by stating that this will need to be ‘proven’ on an electronic vaccine passport:
“What we are looking at is how you can have a vaccination passport, an electronic version of it, that certifies what the vaccine is, is it acceptable to the country you are travelling to,” Joyce says.
Even Joyce has hinted at this expanding in the interview itself:
“I think that’s going to be a common thing talking to my colleagues in other airlines around the globe,” he said.
Well, well, well — here we go, ladies and gentlemen. Immunity passports are set to be woven into the fabric of Australian airline travel, just as was predicted many months ago.
Nobody in, nobody out. Think about that. Will it stop there?
We have seen similar creeps announced: The International Air Transport Association (IATA), a group of 297 airlines including Qantas, is calling for systematic testing of all international travellers.
Testing that may very well be the largest genetic DNA harvesting operation in history, mind you.
Well, I have one word for Qantas: BOYCOTT. Have fun with your plan.
A pretty bold move to deny services to over 40% of the population, based off recent polls online. Even larger percentages in some countries coming in, mind you.
Qantas is the first snake to emerge from the grass. We knew this was coming and shouldn’t be a surprise. Let’s not forget, this is a company that cut massive numbers of staff during the pandemic, despite government support and donations. Their track record on many issues says it all.
I, for one, won’t ever be using them again. Or any of their buddies that try to pull the same moves.
However, in the larger scheme of things, the unknowing masses are once again being led to a trap. Even further ways to ensure uptake of the highly-controversial vaccine next year.
For those who continue towards this path, what will the future entail for them? Are these rules set to be linked with existing rollouts of immunity passports by the World Economic Forum?
Ever since Bill Gates called for immunity passports in a now-infamous Reddit Q&A in April, it was clear that this was the step that would be taken one day in the future.
To this notion, digital health passports are already being rolled out overseas and this could be the program Qantas links with as these calls become actual terms and conditions.
In collaboration with The Commons Project, the World Economic Forum is supporting the development and launch of CommonPass, an initiative which aims to “develop a global, interoperable framework to safely restore cross-border travel to pre-pandemic levels”.
Interesting when you consider Qantas CEO Joyce is a contributor to the WEF group.
According to the project, users would upload their coronavirus test results onto their phone, with the app generating a barcode to be scanned at the airport:
“The CommonPass framework can incorporate specific requirements of individual countries and governments, and can be used to provide more assurance to travellers as well as the population of destination countries.”
The app was developed by the Commons Project Foundation with the support of WEF, and it is hoped the digital passport will bring the countries of the world closer to reopening their borders.
Recently, CommonPass has been tested on United Airlines flights between London and Newark, as well as Cathay Pacific Flights between Hong Kong and Singapore.
Officials from U.S. Customs and Border Protection and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) observed the CommonPass demonstration in Newark.
The vaccine ‘solution’ crossroads is fast approaching, folks. In the future, many facets of life will become inaccessible to pro-choice advocates concerned about the vaccine.
Airlines have just begun, and when the vaccine does arrive, the rest of society will follow in suit.
MASS VACCINE COERCION
The decision from Qantas is the first domino. Soon, many other businesses will be faced with the decision to incorporate similar terms and conditions into their private policies — and may take it.
The Council of Small Business Organisations Australia, representing around 600,000 small businesses throughout the country, wants employers to ‘step up’ and introduce COVID-19 vaccine policies.
“If one of my staff members says, ‘no, I’m against it’, then I’m going to have to say, I’m sorry you are a threat to my business,” Council CEO Peter Strong told 7 News.
Like Qantas, the legal dynamics for private businesses are different to a government-mandated vaccination policies, if it is required as a condition of service or employment.
Individuals always have fundamental rights enshrined, but many forget the fact that businesses also have protected rights. This presents a complex battle moving forward.
Australia is also facing illegal moves for ‘No Jab, No Pay’ guidelines as a requirement for welfare.
Indeed, a very interesting year lies ahead for most of the world, particularly Australia.
Yes, all of this is coming, but as I have always said: You have a choice!
This choice may involve some difficult decisions in the future, including protecting yourself against the system, but freedom can be retained if you are willing to not bow in the face of adversity.
Which there will be plenty of. However, if enough people boycott, form like-minded groups, build pro-choice alternative solutions and spread information, the market will soon get the message.
They are counting on submission to their tyranny.
Australia must see the cracks in their poker faces and call the bluff.
It was nice knowing you, Qantas.
