'The abolition of democracy by the global elites continues...This amounts to no less than disenfranchising the people'


BRUSSELS, Belgium (LifeSiteNews) – On May 11 German Member of European Parliament (MEP) Christine Anderson delivered a powerful speech against the newly proposed World Health Organization (WHO) pandemic treaty, warning, “the abolition of democracy by the global elites continues.”


“On March 3, the EU Commission was authorized…to renegotiate the treaty with the World Health Organization on behalf of the member states. Under the guise of improving global pandemic response, the plan is to allow the WHO to seize executive governance powers of the member states in [the] case of a pandemic,” Anderson explained. “Granting government powers to [a] non-elected body is the exact opposite of democratic recourse and takes away any possibility for the people to hold officials accountable.”


“This amounts to no less than disenfranchising the people. I am imploring you, do what you were elected to do,” she exhorted her colleagues. “Look into this and protect the rights of the people.”



Anderson called on citizens to “write to your MEPS [and] let them know you will not tolerate to be stripped of your rights to democratic recourse. Let them know that any MEP supporting this or voting for this will not ever get your vote again.”


As LifeSite’s petition against the proposed treaty explains, “194 member states representing 99% of the world’s population are expected to sign pandemic treaties with the WHO that would allow [WHO Director General] Tedros, or any future Director General, to dictate exactly how your nation would respond to a new disease outbreak which they consider a pandemic. This attack on national sovereignty will come as no surprise to those who for years have listened to elites like Klaus Schwab and Bill Gates discussing their vision for the centralization of power into globalist organizations like the World Economic Forum (WEF), the WHO and the rest of the United Nations.”


In a press release dated December 21, 2021, the WHO announced that, “the World Health Assembly agreed to kick-start a global process to … establish an intergovernmental negotiating body (INB) to draft and negotiate a WHO convention, agreement, or other international instrument on pandemic prevention, preparedness and response.”


“Biden’s representatives have submitted amendments to the WHO’s International Health Regulations (IHR), which would give the Director General the right to declare health emergencies in any nation, even when disputed by the country in question,” LifeSite’s petition notes. “These amendments, which would be legally binding under international law, will be voted on by the World Health Assembly (the governing body of the WHO) at a special convention running from May 22-28 and set the stage for a fully-fledged pandemic treaty to be passed.”


The push to ratify an international “pandemic treaty” comes as the media hype recent cases of monkeypox in Europe and the U.S. The U.S. government ordered millions of doses of a smallpox-monkeypox vaccine – which the Food and Drug Administration approved in September 2019 – this week.


During a May 15 interview with pro-freedom organization Vox Liberatis, Anderson said, “This is not how democracy is supposed to work because you are taking away the rule by the people for the people.”


She explained that, while the people have some influence over elected officials, power over non-elected officials does not exist. “If this treaty goes through, you can bury the democracy altogether; it’s done with.”


“But how are you going to go against WHO?” Anderson questioned. “I mean you can’t drag them into court; you can’t threaten … to not elect them anymore.”


“They don’t care. I mean they’re funded by the richest of the super-rich people in the world,” she added. “They don’t care; they have all the money, and they don’t care about fundamental rights or democracy. If they say, you will stay at home for as long as I tell you, you will.”


Anderson again appealed to EU citizens to contact their MEPs. “Let them know in no uncertain terms that you will not stand for anyone taking any rights away from you,” she said.
