You never want a serious crisis to go to waste:
these are the
now-infamous words uttered by former White House Chief of Staff
Rahm Emanuel during the early days of the
currently-in-motion financial meltdown, and they are ones that
ring eerily true with a new vaccination campaign taking place in
explain that the United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF)
is taking advantage of the mass influx of refugees from Somalia
into Kenya by pushing polio and measles vaccines on 300,000
religious persecution, and various
other factors have driven hundreds of thousands of Somalians into
nearby Kenya over the past several months.
Many of the refugee
camps taking in these migrants are now at the brink of, or have
already exceeded, their maximum capacity. But even worse, say
authorities, is the fact that the mass relocation is bringing about
a host of new diseases, and the need to protect the children is
greater than ever.
On the surface, such concern and effort makes perfectly logical
humanitarian sense. After all, who would oppose protecting children
against potentially life-threatening illnesses?
plan for helping during this crisis has been birthed out of the same
train of thought as that of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation,
whose partners have literally
held women and children at gunpoint to force vaccinations
Nevertheless, UNICEF says it is pushing vaccines on children at this
time in order to "prevent an outbreak of disease," according to a
recent Associated Press (AP) report.
Refugees are potentially
harboring these life threatening diseases, they say, and this is why
UNICEF has announced that it will hold a two-week vaccine drive to
push the shots in various parts of northern Kenya where refugees are
most prevalent, including at Dadaab, the world's largest refugee
for same 'Millennium Development Goals' as Bill & Melinda Gates
Foundation, which include mass vaccinations
The United Nations (UN), which
presides over UNICEF, has been on a stated mission to "end poverty"
as part of its eight "Millennium Development Goals" (MDG).
And this international
quasi-government has reined in many organizations and foundations to
help achieve its goals:
the other seven of
which include universal education, gender equality, child
health, maternal health, combating HIV and AIDS, environmental
sustainability, and global partnership.
And one of the group's
allies is the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.
Why is this a big deal?
Two MDGs in particular,
child health and maternal health, both involve
vaccinating children against diseases like measles and
polio. And this does not imply vaccinating just some children,
either - it means all of them.
Child Health Fact Sheet, for
instance, clearly states that "[c]onsiderable progress" has been
made in increasing measles vaccination rates among African children,
as the 70 percent rate in 2000 has now eclipsed 81 percent in 2008.
But the obvious goal is 100 percent, as the group is petitioning for
ever-more money to fund its universal vaccine campaign.
Maternal Health Fact Sheet,
though it does not specifically mention vaccines, talks about
increasing expectant mothers' access to,
services, equipment, supplies and skilled healthcare workers."
These healthcare workers
will not only help pregnant women achieve delivery in a safe
environment, but they will also gain an easier footing in convincing
mothers that their newborns need to be immediately vaccinated in
order to prevent more disease.
Both the Child Health and Maternal Health sections
appear to have been designed for the purpose of decreasing sickness
and mortality, as well as improving quality of life for Africans -
and on the surface, this is an admirable mission.
But the devil is in the
details, as one of the primary thrusts behind the UN's health
initiatives is simply to get more people vaccinated.
A recent incident in Malawi, for instance, where
children were forced at gunpoint to receive measles
vaccines, illustrates precisely the type of "child health" that
international organizations like UNICEF and the Bill &
Melinda Gates Foundation are promoting.
This implies that MDGs
are not optional - in other words, they will be imposed by force if
Worse, one of the MDG's stated partnerships is with the Global
Alliance for Vaccines and Immunization (GAVI
Alliance), whose stated purpose is to,
to vaccines, strengthen immunization systems and introduce
innovative new immunization techniques."
Bill Gates made his
now-infamous statements about vaccinating
every child on the planet, for instance, at a recent
GAVI Alliance conference.
So when you put all the pieces together and read between the lines,
it is clear that the MDG goal of improving the health of women and
children means something entirely different than simply providing
them access to healthcare options. There is a much more sinister
agenda at play here that involves essentially forcing things like
pharmaceuticals and vaccines on the unwitting poor for profit and
And UNICEF's current
efforts in Kenya appear to be just another step towards
implementing universal compliance with its vaccine agenda.
