In a November 27, 2021 article published in the PhilStar Global, Elizabeth Marcelo reported that Labor, transport, and socio-civic groups are considering legal remedies against the Inter-Agency Task Force for the Management of Emerging Infectious Diseases (IATF).
According to the article, VJ Topacio of the Pro Labor Legal Assistance Center (PLACE) said their team is now studying the possibility of filing the petitions before the Supreme Court to challenge and defer the implementation of IATF’s Resolution. Resolution Nos. 148-Bhttps://iatf.doh.gov.ph/wp-content/uploads/2021/11/20211111-IATF-Resolution-148B.pdf and 149https://iatf.doh.gov.ph/wp-content/uploads/2021/11/20211118-IATF-RESO-149-RRD.pdf were declared on November 12 and November 18, respectively, specifying that all on-site workers must get vaccinated against COVID-19, and for those unvaccinated to repeatedly undergo reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) testing at their own expense.
Topacio said in Filipino [translated], “In terms of filing legal remedies, we are now talking with several legal experts. We may probably ask SC [the Supreme Court] for a TRO (temporary restraining order) and writ of preliminary injunction to defer the implementation of the resolutions”.
Workers and civic groups, led by the Kilusang Mayo Uno (KMU), Confederation for Unity Advancement and Recognition of Government Employees (COURAGE), PLACE, BPO Industry Employees Network, UP Transport Group, and Institute for Occupational Health and Safety Development (IOHSAD) will hold a dialogue with Labor Secretary Silvestre Bello III on Monday to demand the deferment of the expected implementation of the IATF resolutions on December 1.
The groups are also set to hold a nationwide protest on November 30 to recall what they described as “punitive” and “unconstitutional” IATF resolutions.
Editor’s Note: This report only means one thing: silent freedom fighters already realize that it is time to move or forever be muted.
RA 11525 is explicit: no institution can mandate vaccination. If you are courageous enough to defend yourself against mandatory vaccination (and its substitute, mandatory COVID testing), then we are confident that you can win your case (see CCH LAUNCHES ITS COVID HERO AGAINST COVID TYRANNY SERIES). But first, you must find the courage to fight.
This article is yet another victory because people are now seeing that the law on their side.
We need these kinds of movements. Together with PRACT and other freedom fighters, we can turn the table and have the authorities accountable for all the damages they have inflicted (and still are causing) with all the unconstitutional mandates.
The government desires to give you a medical intervention without giving you the option to choose. Remember that you have sovereignty over your body, and these jabs are experimental and involve significant risks. Therefore, you have the right to informed consent. [Informed consent requires that you be allowed to say NO. Also see, Physicians For Informed Consent release new documents discussing efficacy and risk of COVID vaccines vs. COVID infection, Without informed consent, COVID vaccines are illegal].
Stand up! Think of the world you will hand down to your children and the future generations to come. Every freedom you give up today is freedom they will never get to experience. So think long and hard before you allow yourselves to be bullied by your employers. [If you are ready to push back, utilize documents relevant to your stance, see Ready to pushback? Here are some documents you can use to protect yourself from vaccine coercion. Make sure to watch the accompanying video KNOW YOUR RIGHTS: A Legal Explanation by Atty. Aaron Soguilon].
