The BIRD Group Is Coming Under Increasing Censorship and Censorship Kills
The British Ivermectin Research Development (“BIRD”) Group has been coming under increasing censorship in recent months. In May the BIRD Group noted the increasing censorship on LinkedIn around ivermectin. In July the BIRD Group noted that the World Health Organisation was deleting information on it’s website saying ivermectin is safe and on 1 October twitter suspended BIRD’s account.
It’s not likely to be co-incidence that censorship increased shortly after the International Ivermectin for Covid Conference (“IICC”), hosted by BIRD, on 24 – 25 April 2021. Nor that it was ramped up after World Ivermectin Day on 24 July 2021.
Regarding the broadcasting of World Ivermectin Day, YouTube said content about ivermectin for the prevention or treatment of Covid was not supported by health authorities around the world, and thus they cannot host discussions held about ivermectin on their platform. But, “they can’t ban our science-based, decentralised, bottom-up, citizen-driven movement supporting ivermectin. And they can’t stop you from talking to your doctor about ivermectin,” the World Ivermectin Day website states.
On IICC Day 2, Professor Matjiaz Zwitter gave an incredible talk on the ethical problems surrounding ivermectin as a treatment for Covid, the censorship surrounding ivermectin and the negative promotion coming from health authorities such as the FDA and WHO. Prof Zwitter is the head of the Department of Medical Ethics and Law at the Universtity of Maribor, Slovenia. You can watch Prof Zwitter’s 28-minute talk HERE.
Dr Tess Lawrie, a medical doctor, researcher and director of Evidence-Based Medicine Consultancy Ltd, closed the IICC with a powerful speech.
“The story of ivermectin has highlighted that we are at a remarkable juncture in medical history where: rigorous scientific evidence; our training and experience; the tools that we use to heal; and, our connection with our patients are being systematically undermined by relentless disinformation stemming from corporate greed.
“The story of ivermectin shows that we, as the public, have misplaced our trust in the authorities and have underestimated the extent to which money and power corrupts. Had ivermectin been employed in 2020 – when medical colleagues around the world first alerted the authorities to its efficacy – millions of lives could have been saved and the pandemic, with all of the associated suffering and loss, brought to a rapid and timely end,” Dr Lawrie said.
