The alternative trade union movement, the Australian Medical Professionals’ Society (AMPS), will host one of the largest formal conferences to discuss the impact of lockdown policies on the medical profession in the country.
AMPS is part of Red Union, an umbrella organization of several newly formed unions serving teachers, nurses, police officers and doctors. Red Union was founded in response to the actions of mainstream labor groups during the pandemic, which mostly cooperated with state-backed vaccination mandates.
The “Reclaiming Medicine” conference on September 10, 2022 at the Amora Hotel Riverwalk in Melbourne will feature notable speakers, including author Naomi Wolf, who wrote “The Bodies of Others: The New Authoritarians, COVID-19 and the War Against the Human,” and Amy Kelly, War Room Program Director/DailyClout Pfizer Documents Analysis Project.
Local experts will also speak, including economist Gigi Foster, who will present her cost-benefit analysis of lockdown policies, and Dr Pierre Kory, the world’s leading expert on the use of ultrasound to diagnose critically ill patients and is also the former head of the Critical Care Service and Trauma and Life Support Center at the University of Wisconsin.
“AMPS believes that the current range of medical, medico-legal and medico-political issues brought about by the pandemic require further discussion,” organizers said on its website, adding that many medical professionals felt silenced during the pandemic and forced to respect by the official narrative around COVID-19.
“In the name of medicine and to maintain a uniform official narrative, we have witnessed unprecedented censorship of scientific debate and respectful speech from social media providers.
“In the name of medicine, medical journals have published articles declaring that questioning a viable hypothesis is a conspiracy theory,” the group said.
AMPS said the conference would be one of the first to address these issues publicly.
Medical authorities push for strict compliance
Australian authorities have been strict in enforcing compliance by following the science related to COVID-19.
The Australian Health Practitioners Regulatory Agency (AHPRA) is the country’s main accrediting body for health practitioners, working with 15 other government bodies (national councils) responsible for professions such as nurses or pharmacists.
AHPRA has taken action to warn and suspend doctors who have taken a public stance (even via social media posts) criticizing lockdown policies and vaccine effectiveness.
Attorney Peter Fam, who will also appear at the Reclaiming Medicine conference, said he spoke with “hundreds” of doctors who were “very terrified” of contradicting the official COVID-19 narrative.
“Generally speaking, there are only a few of them who are willing to publicly share the things they share in these spaces,” the Sydney-based lawyer previously told The Epoch Times.
