Gideon van Meijeren on the WHO Pandemic Treaty

Gideon van Meijeren, the dangers of the WHO pandemic treaty.

Speech given in the Lower Chamber of the Dutch parliament on 10 April 2024.

Dear Chairman,

The outgoing government of Mark Rutte – I emphasise outgoing - is about to transfer total control of our public health policy, in the event of a supposed health crisis, to the World Health Organisation, WHO.

If the current proposals for a Pandemic Treaty and the proposed amendments to the International Health Regulations come into force, it will henceforth be the WHO that determines when there is a potential health crisis.  It will be the WHO that then determines what measures should be imposed. Quarantine, isolation, travel restrictions, digital vaccination passports, the WHO will soon be able to prescribe it all, with disruptive consequences for our society.

While at present the WHO is authorised only to make recommendations regarding public health risks, it is now proposed to extend this authority to "any risk with a potential impact on public health."

While it is currently still stipulated that WHO recommendations are non-binding, it is proposed to delete the designation "non-binding."

And while it is currently still stipulated that WHO recommendations must be in line with human dignity and fundamental freedoms, it is also proposed to delete this safeguard.

In addition, fully in line with the United Nations' Sustainable Development Goals Agenda 2030 and the wishes of the World Economic Forum, a so-called "One Health approach" is being implemented, under which issues such as climate change, biodiversity reduction, livestock farming, food production and international travel are also explicitly considered as potential health risks.

In short, anything we as humans do or fail to do can soon be identified by WHO as a "potential threat to public health," after which WHO can prescribe freedom-restricting and degrading measures. Through this route, virtually any measure aimed at exerting more control and power over us will soon be justified on the grounds that you are somehow protecting someone from a potential diminished quality of health.

Health is thus used as a coat hanger onto which virtually all aspects of human life are hung. Therefore it is of fundamental importance that we as the Netherlands retain full control over our national health policy at all times.

So even if the current individuals and organisations behind the WHO had the best interests of our public health at heart, we should not agree to these proposals.

But on top of that, the WHO is already currently corrupted and operates in the shadow of a globalist elite. The WHO is largely funded and driven by private organisations, such as the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, the Rockefeller Foundation and major players in the pharmaceutical industry. Individuals and organisations that are primarily out for more money and more power and certainly do not have the interests of public health at the top of their priority list.

I conclude with an urgent appeal to the outgoing cabinet. Don't go along with this. Don't. Don't yield. Don't allow just about our last remaining national sovereignty and the freedoms of the Dutch people, to be trampled on by an international organisation that is completely unaccountable to the Dutch people. Do not go down in history as the cabinet that definitively handed over the future of our public health and our hard-won freedoms.

Thank you.
