Posted on 7.6.2022 by Alessandra d’Angelo.
A certain “European bubble” does not forgive the President of the Commission. During a press conference held in Strasbourg on February 16, MEPs criticize Ursula von der Leyen for not having disclosed the text messages she exchanged in 2021 with the CEO of Pfizer on the purchases of Covid vaccines. They demand his resignation. They also asked for the end of the imposition of the European health pass, considering it discriminatory. They also call for the urgent creation of a European compensation fund intended to compensate European victims of the side effects of vaccines. (video)
A draconian pass and trial vaccines
Besides the fact that “Ms. von der Leyen did not comply with the transparency rules applicable to EU documents by refusing to communicate her text messages exchanged with the boss of Pfizer, Albert Bourla, in the context of negotiations on a contract to purchase vaccines against covid”, MEPs denounce “drastic measures which are in the hands of lobbies”. They also criticize the President of the European Commission for inviting the Member States “to think quickly about the establishment of a vaccination obligation which it continues to defend”. These same MEPs also contest the fact that the European Commission has decided without health or scientific basis to impose that the Covid digital certificate in the EU be extended until June 2023. “We recall here that this date corresponds to the end of clinical phase 3 of these vaccines and that we are still in full clinical study”.
For a European compensation fund for victims
“More than a million adverse effects following the injection of vaccines are listed by the European Medical Agency (EMA) (Link), not to mention the cases that are not counted because not transmitted because there is a lot of reluctance on the part of doctors to do so”, explain the MEPs. These serious or non-serious adverse effects are distributed as follows: 435,779 for the Pfizer BioNTech vaccine, 373,285 for the AstraZeneca vaccine, 117,243 for the Moderna vaccine and 27,694 for the Janssen vaccine; In addition, 75,000 people suffer from serious neurological effects after the Pfizer vaccine.
“In these reports, children are having strokes, myocarditis, pericarditis and autoimmune diseases due to Covid vaccines for a disease that does not concern them”, specify the deputies. A motion for a resolution has already been tabled in the European Parliament in September 2021 calling for the creation of a compensation fund. “The proposal was swept away out of hand, without being debated. A new proposal will therefore be submitted soon, hoping that it will not be classified this time as fake news.they punctuated.
