Law, justice and human rights
The conversation on law, Justice and Human Rights was on the pursuit of justice. The burning question was how law could be used to serve human rights and be a lighthouse for individual and collective b. It was hosted by Shabnam Mohamed and Pearl Kupe, both of whom are a part of the World Council of Health Law and Activism Committee and also sit on the Children’s Health Defense (Africa) board.

The conference ended on Sunday May 22 around 10pm. Participants were greatly inspired and provoked to stand against all forms of global tyranny and to be a voice against injustice. 

On Monday May 23 a follow-up meeting was held with speakers and hosts to strategise and plan a way forward. Also discussed was the STOPTHETREATY campaign which opposes the World Health Organisation (WHO)-proposed treaty and the 14 WHO-proposed International Health Regulations which would have the overall effect of taking away countries’ national sovereignty. This campaign successfully aborted 13 of the 14 proposed amendments, leaving only article 59 amendment for discussion.

The Better Way conference was historic. It allowed people who have been engaging online in recent years to meet and connect in person. Relationships were forged and solidified and attendees were inspired to do more. Nations came together with a common purpose and unity, and pledged to fight the war against medical apartheid and global colonisation by WHO. 

Africa stands up to WHO, says ‘no’ to medical colonisation
On May 25, Africa Day 47 African nations stood up to the WHO to reject the proposed IHR (International Health Regulations) amendments. Thirteen of the 14 proposed amendments were taken off the table and approval of the amendments was denied. The deputy permanent secretary for the Botswana Ministry of Health and Wellness read out the statement on behalf of 47 African states. 

African nations need to stand strong against the globalist agenda to take away the sovereignty of nations and place power and control in the hands of a few.
