italians march for vaccine freedom

June 2017 saw Italians organize the largest pubic demonstrations against forced vaccination held in Europe since the Victorian era. Tens of thousands of parents, grandparents , children and their families in cities from Verona to Rome marched for “freedom of choice” in opposition to a May 19 decree mandating that school children receive multiple doses of 12 vaccines (up from four vaccines) or be prohibited from attending school. Non-compliant parents could be fined up to $9,700. 

In 2015 the Italian government launched a $785 million National Vaccination Plan that coincided with GlaxoSmithKline’s announcement of a one billion euro investment in Italy over four years. GSK manufacturers and markets eight of the 12 vaccines now mandated by the Italian government.

Italian doctors who dissent from the National Vaccination Plan’s restrictive policies and advocate for voluntary use of vaccines are being targeted for de-licensing. 

Major news outlets in the U.S. and Europe are taking an active role in assisting governments pursuing the global forced vaccination agenda. The New York Times, Scientific American and The Financial Times have all recently made strong statements attacking vaccine hesitancy and vaccine choice, including a call by vaccine developer Dr. Peter Hotez for the U.S. and other governments in developed countries to “snuff out” the anti-vaccine movement.

Most vaccines are voluntary in all but a few western European countries, and there has been a generally high vaccination rate for DPT, MMR and polio without mandates. A member of the ruling party in the Italian parliament introduced the new bill because vaccination coverage for measles declined from 90 to 85 percent among children between 2011 and 2015. 

Mandatory vaccination goes against at least a dozen European ethical documents protecting autonomy, including the 1947 Nuremberg Code that defined informed consent to medical risk taking as a human right.
