Four Queensland construction unions have announced they will fight any laws making COVID-19 vaccination mandatory on building sites.
CFMEU, ETU, AMWU and PPTEU have released a joint statement warning that such laws would remove the rights of workers to make “informed personal choices”.
The WA government will give the Health Department powers to ban unvaccinated children from attending school and child care centres as part of ‘No Jab, No Play’ measures expected to take effect on January 1, 2019.
Under the new laws, kindergartens, schools and child care centres will be required to keep up-to-date immunisation records, and the department’s “chief health officer” will have power to “order under-vaccinated children to stay home”.
Protesters rallied at Queens Park in Brisbane yesterday to oppose proposals to revoke family tax benefits of conscientious objectors to vaccination, through means of legislative reform, and to promote the ideals of freedom of choice from state-enforced measures through lies, deception and propaganda.
TOTT News and Real News Australia were at the rally, and captured a number of photos, interviews and videos.
