In China’s Xinjiang, forced medication accompanies lockdown
apnews.com/309c576c602603…
When police arrested the middle-aged Uighur woman at the height of China’s coronavirus outbreak, she was crammed into a cell with dozens of other women in a detention center.
There, she said, she was forced to drink a medicine that made her feel weak & nauseous, guards watching as she gulped. She and the others also had to strip naked once a week and cover their faces as guards hosed them and their cells down with disinfectant “like firemen,” she said
The government in China’s far northwest Xinjiang region is resorting to draconian measures to combat the coronavirus, including physically locking residents in homes, imposing quarantines of more than 40 days and arresting those who do not comply.
Even as Wuhan and the rest of China has mostly returned to ordinary life, Xinjiang’s lockdown is backed by a vast surveillance apparatus that has turned the region into a digital police state.

Just 6 months ago I would have thought this type of government oppression could not happen in USA. Now, I believe this could be easily coming to USA.

BMJ (British Medical Journal) COVID editorial seeks ‘social murder’ charges against anti-lockdown politicians who ‘wilfully neglect scientific advice…and modeling’
climatedepot.com/2021/02/13/bmj…
BMJ editorial: "International accountability: A pandemic has implications both for the residents of a country and for the international community, so sovereign governments should arguably be held accountable to international community for their actions and omissions on covid-19."
"The 'social murder' of populations is more than a relic of a bygone age. It is very real today, exposed & magnified by covid-19. It cannot be ignored or spun away. Politicians must be held to account by legal & electoral means...

British Medical Journal advocates international action anti-lockdown nations: ‘Microorganisms, climate change…pay no heed to 17th-century notions of state sovereignty, the case for a greatly strengthened supranational system of accountability is clear’ climatedepot.com/2021/02/13/bmj…
"A recent BMJ editorial [asked] whether the leaders of countries that have experienced very high numbers of deaths from covid-19 should be held accountable for 'social murder.'
Although the subsequent United Nations resolution limits the international community’s scope to act to “genocide, war crimes, ethnic cleansing and crimes against humanity"...

John Kerry falsely claims: It’s ‘cheaper to deal with the crisis of climate than it is to ignore it’ – Reality check: There is no ‘crisis’ & ‘solutions’ would have no impact
climatedepot.com/2021/01/30/joh…
Morano: "Would anyone purchase fire insurance on their home that had a huge upfront premium for virtually no payout if your home burned down? If you answered YES to such an 'insurance' policy, then Congress, the EPA, & the UN have a deal for you with their 'climate' regulations.
Morano: "If we actually did face a man-made climate crisis and we had to rely on the U.S. Congress or the United Nations to save us, we would all be DOOMED."

Meet Peter Kalmus, the ‘dumpster diving’ NASA climate scientist who warns it’s ‘end of life on Earth as we know it’ & it’s ‘freaking out in my brain’ climatedepot.com/2021/01/29/mee…
Jet Propulsion Lab climate scientist Kalmus: "A climate scientist spent years trying to get people to pay attention to disaster ahead. His wife is exhausted. His older son thinks there’s no future. & nobody but him will use outdoor toilet he built to shrink his carbon footprint."
Peter Kalmus had been pleading, begging for people to pay attention to the global emergency. “Is this my personal hell?” he tweeted this past fall. “That I have to spend my entire life desperately trying to convince everyone NOT TO DESTROY THE FUCKING EARTH?”

My critique of Christopher Snowdon’s deplorable article in The Quillette – Sanjeev Sabhlok's blog - sabhlokcity.com/2021/01/my-cri…
Sanjeev Sabhlok: "This is a piece clearly from someone who has worked from home and enjoyed the lockdowns. This was a big test of science and philosophy and we have failed on both counts."
"The science was very clear: there shall be no lockdowns for flu-like viruses."
