The recent and proposed changes to the World Health Associations, International Health Regulations pose an existential threat to many of the values Australians hold dear.
Under these changes to the regulations, the World Health Organization would wield unchecked power. Their decisions would bind all member countries, leaving no room for dissent or autonomy. States of Emergency could be declared at their whim, curtailing our liberties with impunity.
The proposed changes seek to undermine national sovereignty, trample on democracy, and stifle our hard-won freedoms.
This danger is real and it demands our immediate action.
Given the potential dire and horrifying ramifications of these proposed amendments, it is time to take a stand and let Parliament know that they need to hold an inquiry into the International Health Regulations.
The best way to do this is by sending an email to the JSCOT (Joint Standing Committee on Treaties) secretariat.
We've simplified the process by preparing a letter that you can copy to your clipboard (with one tap or mouse click), and then you click a button to open your email and you send an email from your computer to the JSCOT secretariat by pasting the letter you copied.
All it takes is four mouse clicks and typing 10-15 words. If this is too much for us, then we deserve what we get.
The Australian Parliament’s Joint Standing Committee on Treaties offers a chance to expose these perilous changes and demand accountability. This has come about recently due to discussions within Government regarding this.
As a staunch defender of freedom, your voice is crucial. We’re asking you to stand up, and send an email to demand an urgent parliamentary inquiry into these dangerous changes to the International Health Regulations.
Follow 'Step 1' and 'Step 2' below.

P.S. The only way the public gets a say with these changes is through a Parliamentary Inquiry.
Time is of the essence. We cannot afford complacency or delay. If we falter, we risk our free and sovereign nation being surrendered into powerful hands of those who do not have our unique true blue, aussie interests at heart.
You're welcome to copy and use any parts of the letter below if you wish to send your own correspondence.
While we do our best to accommodate differences in platforms and setups, sometimes things don't quite work as we intended them to. Our apologies.

Request for a Parliamentary Inquiry into the World Health Organization's Amendments to the International Health Regulations
As a concerned Australian, I am writing to respectfully request your attention and consideration regarding an issue of paramount importance— the recent and proposed changes to the International Health Regulations as put forth by various member states of the World Health Organization (WHO).
The changes will impact Australia’s ability to respond to any future international health crises and both threaten to change the nature of the relationship between Australia and the WHO as well as undermine Australia’s health and parliamentary authority.
As per the WHO’s own website, ‘’The IHR are an instrument of international law that is legally-binding on 196 countries, including the 194 WHO Member States’’. The proposed amendments include that:
It is also proposed that Australia introduce domestic legislation to implement the WHO’s mandates (article 4).
The deadline to reject the amendments (adopted in May 2022) to the International Health Regulations has now passed.
The deadline for input into a further 307 proposed changes to International Health Regulations that are currently under negotiation was the 27th January. This deadline has not been met and, while the proposed changes are known and of grave concern, the WHO negotiations on those changes are being held to a large extent in secret and without public input.
The inability of the WHO to comply with Article 55 of its own regulations begs the question of their integrity. They are not complying with very clear rules in full sight.
I am sure you would be aware that given these are only amendments to an existing agreement they hence do not require any approval by our Government.
As such a parliamentary inquiry to comprehensively and transparently evaluate these proposed changes, and seek input from experts, stakeholders, and everyday Australians is of utmost importance to ensure that Australians have the opportunity to participate in shaping the policies that impact Australian lives, especially those which emanate from unelected organisations such as the WHO, whose funding model leaves it open to significant potential conflicts of interests.
Such an inquiry would provide a platform for thorough examination, allowing diverse perspectives to be heard and ensuring transparency and accountability in the decision-making process.
A transparent and comprehensive Parliamentary Inquiry will facilitate this. It will ensure that the responsibility for the health and well-being of Australians remains with those who have been elected by Australians who understand our unique needs.
I kindly request that the Parliamentary Joint Standing Committee on Treaties initiate a parliamentary inquiry into the World Health Organization's recent and proposed InternationalHealth Regulation changes. By doing so, you would demonstrate a commitment to democratic values and provide an avenue for meaningful public input.
