This is a chronology not based on the date the information was published but based on the date I received it.
It should be clear that I am not in accord with the ideological aspects of the content of many of the articles I link to.
Switzerland, St.Gallen: 2nd April, heavy clashes as cops clamp down on street parties with Covid as pretext
“The unrest came a week after similar violence when police broke up an illegal party in the city. This week the exchanges were more heated, with police at one point being attacked by a Molotov cocktail. They responded with rubber bullets and tear gas. Two young people were injured. Some 21 were arrested by police for questioning, but all have since been released”
Belgium: interview (in French) with pathologist who lodged legal complaint against the medical order and the directive sent to all doctors in Belgium in January 2021 that vaccination is an obligation and that doctors must promote the vaccination programme or risk facing severe sanctions
Amongst other things, he points out that there have been virtually no autopsies for those who have died (as compared with those who died from AIDS-related illnesses in the past), so it’s impossible to say whether someone died either because of Covid or died of something else whilst having Covid. See also this – “Despite the increasing number of published studies on COVID-19, in all the examined studies the lack of a well-defined pathophysiology of death among patients who died following COVID-19 infection is evident. Autopsy should be considered mandatory to define the exact cause of death, thus providing useful clinical and epidemiologic information as well as pathophysiological insights to further provide therapeutic tools.” However, the doctor’s claim that this comes from an order from the WHO is not true (see this).
Bits and pieces about Israel:
State limits access to tests in order to increase vaccinations “Responding to an increase in demand for serology tests, which detect antibodies in the blood of people who have recovered from the disease or been vaccinated, the Health Ministry has decided to restrict access in an effort to encourage vaccination, Channel 12 reported Tuesday. Formerly, serology tests, which are administered by health providers or in hospitals, were available to anyone.…Since the policy was announced, there has been an increase in demand for the test, especially among young people in Arab and ultra-Orthodox communities, who are reluctant to get vaccinated, the report said. Health providers have struggled to meet increased demand for the tests, and the Health Ministry also wishes to limit tests in order to encourage vaccination.”
The Director General of the Ministry of Health (Hezi Levi), responsible for the vaccination programme, and Israel’s “Corona Project Manager” (Nahman Ash) were almost certainly involved in a vaccination scandal in the 1990s involving illegal anthrax experiments on Israel’s young soldiers. Hezi Levi was the Chief Medical Officer for the IDF at the time and Nahman Ash was his second-in-command. “The trial’s organizers exploited the high motivation and innocence of the soldiers, most of whom were attending courses or were at the start of their military service, and whom they approached to participate in secret experiments. Crucial information was hidden from the soldiers during the recruitment process; they were forbidden from informing their unit doctor about their participation, and most of them didn’t even tell their parents. All this, along with the exploitation of troops that occurs within a hierarchy, completely undermined the informed consent given by the soldiers. The process was so tainted by defects that it’s doubtful whether the soldiers’ signatures can even be considered as agreement.”
Israel’s Ministry of Health has published totally incorrect information about the Pfizer vaccine, saying it is FDA APPROVED ( the FDA is the USA’s Food and Drug Agency). The People’s (sic*) Committee says it has filed a motion in the High Court regarding a request for the Ministry of Health for a corrective publication regarding the deception involved in FDA APPROVED, to open a criminal investigation against those responsible for the misleading publication and to take disciplinary action against those responsible. This is a very significant document.
The High Court has ordered the state to respond within a week to the petition.

Long report from this committee (not all of which I’ve read yet): The Israeli People Committee – Interim Conclusion Report – April 2021
* I am generally wary of expressions like “The People”, which tends to be another form of representation. As with all expressions, it depends on context, how it’s used: by “The People” some people mean “the working class” or even “proletariat”, both of which phrases have their own history of being used in a manipulative manner. For the misuse of the phrase “The People” see this.
Bangladesh, Saltha Upazila: demonstration against Covid restrictions turns into riot after cops kill demonstrator; police station torched, administrative offices, shopping centre etc. attacked
“One protester was killed and at least three others were critically injured as the police opened fire on mobs agitating against anti-COVID-19 restrictions in Saltha upazila of Faridpur on Monday night. The mobs attacked the upazila administrative office, Saltha police station, office of the assistant commissioner for land and muktijoddha complex and engaged in clashes with the police, according to witnesses…locals at one stage attacked sub-inspector Mizanur Rahman…hundreds of people marched towards the local police station and set fire to government installations, including the upazila parishad building, police station, AC Land office, UNO’s residence, upazila agriculture office”
It seems to me that the massive publicity given to the couple of deaths from blood clots of the AstraZeneca vaccine is possibly a cover for something far worse.
As usual they have their get-out clause – that the vaccine did not necessarily cause the reactions
“When viewing the vaccine analysis print you should remember that:
- Reporters are asked to submit Yellow Card reports even if they only have a suspicion that the medicine may have caused the adverse reaction. The existence of an adverse reaction report in the print does not necessarily mean that the vaccine has caused the suspected reaction.
- It may be difficult to tell the difference between something that has occurred naturally and a suspected adverse reaction. Sometimes these events can be part of the condition being treated rather than being caused by the vaccine.
- Many factors have to be considered when assessing whether the vaccine has caused a reported adverse reaction. When monitoring the safety of vaccines and medicines, MHRA staff carry out careful analysis of these factors.
For a medicine or vaccine to be considered safe, the expected benefits will be greater than the risk of having harmful reactions. It is important to note that most people take medicines and vaccines without having any serious side effects.”

Even if the qualifier “Reporters are asked to submit Yellow Card reports even if they only have a suspicion that the medicine may have caused the adverse reaction” means excessive over-reporting and that just 10% of the adverse reactions were caused by the vaccine that’s still a hell of a lot of deaths that have not had publicity, as compared with the 2 that have. Why are the 2 deaths by blood clots considered to be definitely associated with the AZ vaccine whereas the other 702 (or 711 if you add on the 9 deaths possibly associated with unspecified brands of vaccine) are not definitely associated with the combined vaccines of AZ and Pfizer?
UK reports 7 blood clot deaths and 30 cases of rare blood clots among recipients of AstraZeneca jab; 9 deaths in Germany
“While many countries have resumed use of the vaccine after pausing their programmes, others have remained nervous. Among them, Canada has suspended use of the jab for people under the age of 55, while Germany has suspended routine use of the jab in the under-60s. The latter has noted 31 cases of CVST after giving 2.7m doses of the Oxford/AstraZeneca vaccine, 19 of which were associated with low platelets, and nine deaths. At present, most of these rare clotting events appear to be occurring in women under the age of 65 – but quite why this is remains unclear.”
This 2015 article about deaths following the flu vaccine, finishes with “At worst (unsuitable vaccine and unsuitable recipient), vaccination may result in the collapse of immunity, severe exacerbation of existing health conditions, and rapid development of fatal complications. The above considerations do not call for utopic ‘personal’ flu vaccines, but they do emphasize the critical importance of evaluating individual PEI status prior to vaccination, and using this parameter as a novel stratification/fitness index. This index should be thoroughly refined, and key parameters of pre-existing humoral and cellular immunity having the greatest impact on the immune response to vaccination should be extensively examined. Novel national infrastructures, including banks of regularly updated personal serum and medical histories should be created, and novel methodology should be developed to ensure fast computerized individual evaluations, which is critical in a pandemic period. This approach will inevitably cause criticism as complicating an already complex problem. However, it may help break the deadlock of the current policy of influenza vaccination, maintain human health and save lives. “The race is on, the stakes are high, and the world is nervously watching”. With the Covid vaccines there is NO EVALUATION OF INDIVIDUAL PEI STATUS PRIOR TO VACCINATION (I’m presuming – hopefully rightly – that PEI here stands for “Personal Experience Inventory”). Moreover, the ‘experts’ advising the continued use of the AZ vaccine are using the justification that Covid itself carries a greater risk of blood clotting than the vaccination without acknowledging that the introduction of the same disease through direct vaccination injection into previously healthy people must carry a similar risk.
“The Israeli People’s Committee has uncovered a multitude of malfunctions and failures at the administrative, ethical and legal levels during the COVID-19 vaccination campaign at the beginning of 2021 in Israel. In this document, we aim at presenting and elaborating the main features of these malfunctions, which have led to severe damages in many Israelis in the short term, and sadly to possible future damages. It seems that the entire country got caught up in a medical-social chaos, where the leadership has enabled a situation of fear and uncertainty to run its course out of control, and even contributed to its further enhancement. But most of all, we cannot ignore severe suspicions shared by all the committee members, that the fundamental sin, which led to the chaos and its casualties, is the way in which two very powerful personages, prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Pfizer CEO Dr. Albert Bourla, agreed upon a massive vaccination campaign in Israel that is unprecedented in scale and nature. A vaccination campaign that lacks effective safeguards for public safety, that is devoid of any concern for people who may be harmed by the vaccine, and that has allegedly guaranteed to encompass populations, for which the safety of the vaccine has not been tested (pregnant women and their fetuses), and later also children, for whom the need to be vaccinated is totally unclear, while pushing aside any safety considerations. From this exact episode, where both parties came to an agreement regarding the vaccination campaign, which involved a wide variety of ethical and safety violations, an unrestrained drama was initiated that has revealed itself to be impulsive, neglectful and reckless. The agreed upon vaccination campaign concerns matters of life and death, yet is being conducted in an amateurish, irresponsible and aggressive manner, and it led to the political arena taking over the medical arena and bending it to its needs, while paralyzing all alarm systems, monitoring measures and open scientific discussion. Unfortunately, most of the medical system collaborated with this unsupervised process, starting with the higher ranks, and ending with field doctors – some actively, some by keeping quiet from fear of reprisal.”
“Police chief Archie Gamboa assured Thursday that the police would not start shooting the troublemakers. “The president has probably put too much emphasis on law enforcement in this time of crisis,” he said. Hours before Rodrigo Duterte’s statements Wednesday evening, nearly 20 people living in slums in Manila were arrested for staging a protest against the government, accused of failing to provide food aid to the poor. …”I ordered the police and the army as well as village officials to shoot people in the event of a problem or a fight that would put your lives on the line,” the president said. “Instead of causing problems, I will send you to the grave,” he thundered before explaining that after two weeks of confinement, the epidemic was continuing to progress.”
Covid has so far killed 0.012% of the population of the Phillipines.
“We were preparing a video of an interview with a general practitioner, a most interesting point of view that we wanted to share with you. Before even publishing it, take a look at the message we received: YouTube does not allow content that explicitly calls into question the effectiveness of social distancing and self-isolation measures advocated by local health authorities or the World Health Organization (WHO), and which may encourage people not to respect them “
“Calm returned after unrest all evening in Bois de la Cambre after a fake festival … Large groups of young people played a game of cat and mouse with the police all evening. This afternoon, a multitude of people showed up for “La Boum”, a fake festival that supposedly took place there. Peace did not return until 10 p.m. Dozens were injured and 22 people were arrested. 7 police horses were also injured. … The police put it at about 2,000 participants. They had turned up for the April fishing festival [April Fools Day in French is “Poisson d’avril” – Fish April] “La Boum” announced via Facebook by an anonymous artist collective from Brussels. From the beginning of this week it was clear that it was a joke, but it all got out of hand. Young people in particular often came together to party without a mouth mask. …the atmosphere only became grim when the police arrived a little after 4 pm. “Then it started to derail…The police first tried to quietly evacuate the park, but that did not work. So they deployed the great resources: horses, dogs and the water cannon.” …A large part of the park had already been evacuated by 6.30 p.m., but a hard core of a few hundred people continues to play a game of cat and mouse with the police for hours. During the evening twilight, the party is still going on, according to these images. … Fireworks are even set off by the revelers around 9 pm. At the same time, the water cannon must also be deployed several times. At that time, two large groups with several hundred young people are running amok in the Bois de la Cambre….Minister of the Interior Annelies Verlinden (CD&V) reacts indignantly. “The April Fool’s joke that got out of hand today in the Bois de la Cambre is a blow to all those people who are doing their best to respect the corona measures,” she said in a press release. …”I am well aware that the COVID crisis is now taking a very long time for many people and especially young people and that it is not always easy to comply with the measures,” she continues. “The more consistently we show solidarity with the measures, the faster we can stop the spread of the virus together.” The Brussels mayor Philippe Close (PS) is also unhappy about what happened. Earlier this week, he had already asked the public prosecutor’s office to take action against the April Fish Festival and the police were also on standby this afternoon, he said. “We cannot tolerate thousands of people coming together while the virus is still spreading…Everyone needs a party, but we cannot accept this.” … “It is still much too early for this”, says virologist Steven Van Gucht…”We are at a stage where very few people are vaccinated and protected, so we have to keep insisting on the measures. This is not worth repeating. ” Van Gucht says he understands that many young people are tired of it, but still asks to persist. “By letting go too early you can potentially cause thousands of extra deaths that are not necessary because in a few weeks the people at risk for complications and deaths will be vaccinated. It’s too early to let go, however difficult that may be.”
More here, here and here. “Spokesperson” for the collective apparently “responsible” for the fake
festival speaks here. This spokesperson says that they want to spread the idea of “wild parties” (flashmob parties?) throughout Europe, as if the idea came from them. In fact, spontaneously or organised on Facebook or wherever, such parties, in defiance of the authorities, have existed for some time. I remember towards the end of confinement in Montpellier in May last year, a party of a100 people developed in the park without having been pre-organised at all. The absurdity of this epoch is that something as simple and banal as a street or park party is now defined as a threat to people’s lives and a callous egotistical act – both by “revolutionaries” and conservatives.
