Send comments to World Health Organization on pandemic treaty update negotiations
Repost of email update from Stand for Health Freedom
Note: As I’ve written before, I think the current version of the WHO International Health Regulations of 2005 already comprise de facto nullification of the U.S. Constitution and mooting of the U.S. government, so that US Health and Human Services Secretary Xavier Becerra is an unelected and unannounced American dictator, and he and his predecessor (Alex Azar) have been serving the WHO and its financial backers in that capacity since January 2020.
It’s still worth letting WHO know how many people around the world are watching what they’re doing now, learning about what they’ve already done and attempted to do, and preparing to engage in more vigorous, widespread, well-informed noncompliance against the WHO’s illegitimate attempted theft of our individual and national sovereignty.
UPDATE FROM STAND FOR HEALTH FREEDOM
Comments open for WHO Pandemic Treaty meeting
Over 37,000 people across the globe signed the Stand for Health Freedom petition to tell America’s leaders to say NO to a legally binding global pandemic treaty. Now you also have the opportunity to tell WHO directly! Comments are now open for the world to tell The World Health Organization (WHO) what we think about a global pandemic treaty.
A meeting that starts at 08:00 CEST (2:00 am EST) April 12, 2022 was announced at the end of last week, leaving little time for public input, but comments are open until 11:00 am EST, Thursday April 13.
WHO created an Intergovernmental Negotiating Body (INB) to work out the details of the global Pandemic Treaty planned for adoption at the 2024 World Health Assembly. It intended that the agreement be legally binding on member states.
This is an unacceptable threat to U.S. sovereignty, and would take health decisions out of the hands of American families. Click here to learn more and sign the petition telling our lawmakers to keep health at home.
WHO Rules for comments:
You must answer the question: “What substantive elements do you think should be included in a new international instrument on pandemic preparedness and response?”
250 word maximum
Responses are due by 17:00 CEST (11:00 am EST) Thursday, April 13, 2022.

Stand for Health Freedom cannot give you a script because messages would be blocked. If you need inspiration, here are the main talking points:
WHO treaties that remove power from the US are dangerous to the health and welfare of Americans.
All health decisions need to stay as close to home as possible, including when an emergency exists. WHO does not have power over the health decisions yet but it will if the US agrees to a legally binding pandemic treaty.
The WHO Constitution states: “Informed opinion and active co-operation on the part of the public are of the utmost importance in the improvement of the health of the people.” Let’s hold them accountable to their word.

UPDATE: Text of the WHO Terms of Participation indicate pretty clearly what they think of the public in relationship to the WHO. We have no rights, and they have all immunities.
These terms address your participation or other activities relating to the public hearings of the WHO Intergovernmental Negotiating Body to draft and negotiate a WHO convention, agreement or other international instrument on pandemic prevention, preparedness and response (the INB).
Please read these terms carefully. By participating in the hearings or indicating your interest to do so, you are deemed to have agreed to these terms. Throughout these terms, the terms “you” and “your” refer to both you as an individual, and, if applicable, any entity or organization you represent or are affiliated with, and you confirm that you are authorized to act on behalf of that organization.
In the event that WHO decides that your conduct or participation in the public hearings is or would be inconsistent with these Terms, or for any reasonable basis as decided by WHO, WHO may, at its sole discretion, and without any notice, recourse, or remedy to you, elect to remove you from participation in the public hearings and/or remove or redact any contribution(s) you may have made to the public hearings.
Conduct of your participation
In any participation in the public hearings (written, spoken, or otherwise), your behaviour and contributions must in all cases:
Be relevant to the subject matter of the public hearings;
Refrain from making any statements unrelated to the topic at hand; and
Be presented in a respectful manner, free of any profanity, ad hominem attacks, vulgarity, or other inappropriate language.
If participation, spoken or written, does not conform with these requirements, as determined solely by WHO, the participation will not be receivable. This means that WHO may call speakers to order, and/or discontinue speakers’ connections, and elect to not post written statements.
Full disclosure of all affiliations
In participating in the public hearings, you must declare the entity you represent and any other affiliations, engagement, or roles relevant to the public hearings or to WHO, in light of its mandate.
No right to participate in the public hearings
You understand that WHO is not able to ensure that all interested parties will be able to participate in the public hearings, and that thus WHO does not make any commitment or undertaking to allow you to participate in the public hearings.
Terms regarding the spoken component of the public hearings
Subject to WHO’s policies and procedures, the availability of slots, and these terms, spoken contributions will be welcome from all relevant stakeholders, including both public and private sector entities, that register and accept the applicable terms for spoken contributions.
The time limit for each spoken intervention at the hearings is two minutes. Participants may be automatically cut off on this two-minute mark. For reference, this is approximately 220 words of written text delivered at a speed that allows simultaneous interpretation, as more fully described below.
WHO will, subject to availability and technical ability, provide interpretation in the official WHO languages, and your contribution may be in any of the official WHO languages, which are Arabic, Chinese, English, French, Russian and Spanish. Spoken contributions in any other language are unfortunately not receivable at this time.
Participants must speak clearly and at a reasonable pace, which enables interpretation into WHO’s official languages. Appropriate video and audio connections will help ensure clarity of spoken contributions.
Any failure to follow the speed and process of the digital platform may result in a speaker’s allocated speaking position being forfeited.
WHO does not provide any right to speak, and speaking opportunities may be impacted by technical issues, errors, human errors, or other factors.
Please also note that due to high expected demand, WHO cannot guarantee speaking slots, or any specific speaking times, for the spoken component of the public hearings and may allocate the limited number of slots available with a view to ensuring the widest possible presentation of viewpoints.
Terms regarding the written component of the public hearings
Written contributions will be welcome from all interested parties, including the general public.
Written contributions may be provided in any language. Please note, however, that translation will not be provided by WHO, contributions will (subject to these terms, including potential redactions or revisions) be presented in the language in which they were provided. Please further note that in reviewing and preparing any reports or summaries of contributions received, WHO will machine translate any contributions received into English for internal administrative purposes.
Media (and related) consent
By participating in the hearings and/or indicating your wish to do so, you consent to your contribution(s) – whether video statement, written statement, and/ or otherwise – being publicly disclosed, broadcast, archived, and presented by WHO for the purpose of the public hearings and any other purpose consistent with WHO’s mandate, including through WHO’s website and /or in other materials and through other outlets. You further consent to your name and information as provided to WHO for the public hearings to be included in a published list of participants and/or interested parties.
You further waive any rights to any materials that may conclude, incorporate, or make reference to your contribution(s) to the hearings, and acknowledge that WHO is under no obligation to use your contribution(s), and may remove or delete any contribution(s) at its sole discretion.
No use of WHO name or logo, or implied engagement or affiliation with WHO
You are not permitted to state or imply that WHO endorses, is affiliated with, or is engaged with you as a result of the public hearings, or that WHO endorses any entity, organization, company, or product, or use the name or emblem of WHO in any way.
Participation (and/or an expression of interest to participate) in the public hearings is not to be considered an ‘engagement’ with any actor under WHO’s rules, procedures, and practice, including, without limitation, the Framework of Engagement with non-State Actors.
Disclaimers and other matters
While all contributions to the public hearings will be moderated by the WHO Secretariat in line with the applicable terms and standard WHO practice, no contributions received should be interpreted as reflecting the view or position of WHO.
For the avoidance of all doubt, nothing contained herein or in any connection with any aspect of the public hearings shall be construed as a waiver of any of the privileges and immunities enjoyed by WHO under national or international law, and/or as submitting the WHO to any national court jurisdiction.
