Covid-19 vaccine mandate opponents have gathered for a march in Washington, DC today in an event organisers have called “Defeat the Mandates: An American Homecoming”.

Among those marching are firefighters, teachers, first responders, and other groups, who began to gather on the National Mall from 10.30am local time. At 11.30am they are scheduled to march from the Washington Monument ao Lincoln Memorial.

At 12pm there will be musical performances and speeches including remarks from anti-vaccine activist Robert F Kennedy Jr, controversial doctor Robert Malone, and Lara Logan a former 60 Minutes correspondent and Notícias da raposa contributor.

The event is meant to gather people who oppose vaccine mandates, vacinas para crianças, and other pandemic requirements and restrictions, though many of the speakers are prominently against the vaccine itself. A permit filed with the National Park Service states that the march could attract as many as 20,000 pessoas.

Authorities and businesses in the city have ramped up their security operations ahead of today’s protest. Law enforcement agencies are worried that the potentially large demonstrations against vaccine mandates could attract members of extremist groups.

The Federal Bureau of Investigation, Department of Homeland Security, Metropolitan Police Department, US Park Police, and others have made extensive plans ahead of this weekend.

Singer Graham Nash slams RFK Jr for using song in anti-vaxx video

Singer Graham Nash of Crosby, Stills, Nash, and Young fame, has slammed Robert Kennedy Jr for using his song “Chicago” to promote today’s anti-vaccine mandate rally in Washington.

Nash wrote on Instagram:

The use of my song “Chicago” by Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.’s Children’s Health Defense movement in a video to promote his organization’s rally in Washington, D.C. tomorrow is not authorized and I am taking steps to cause the cessation of its use.

I do not support his anti-vaccination position as the history of the efficacy of the Covid19 vaccines is well documented.

When I wrote “We Can Change the World” I did not expect that an institution such as this one that claims that it fights for individuals’ freedoms would so readily and recklessly infringe upon and, by its association with its cause, mischaracterize the intellectual property rights of a songwriter for its own purposes. I believe in science and facts, and do not support such blatant disregard for either, nor for my rights as a musician.

‘A jarring spectacle

The Washington Post notes:

Almost two years into a pandemic that has killed more than 860,000 Americanos, the gathering on the Mall promised to be a jarring spectacle: A crowd of demonstrators decrying vaccine mandates in the middle of a city that recently adopted such a mandate to reduce sickness and death from the surge of the virus’s omicron variant, which has battered D.C. for weeks.

Focus of event on mandates, but anti-vaxx activists attending

While the promotion of the event has focussed on pushing back against vaccination mandates by employers and for entering businesses and other venues, it is also bringing together many prominent anti-vaccine activists.

NBC News relatórios:

Kolina Koltai, a postdoctoral fellow who researches the anti-vaccine movement at the University of Washington’s Center for an Informed Public, said the D.C. event was bringing together some of the most high-profile anti-vaccine activists.

“It’s a who’s who of grifters and people who made a profit off the pandemic," ela disse

Though the event has been mostly marketed as opposing vaccine mandates, organizers on Facebook have been quick to promote their links with anti-vaccine organizations, including Robert F. Kennedy Jr.’s Children’s Health Defense fund, with a group of doctors who recommended and prescribed treatments such as ivermectin and hydroxychloroquine instead of Covid vaccines in the last year.

While voicing opposition to mandates is not against policies on social media companies such as Facebook, spreading harmful false claims about vaccines is.

Koltai said that while most, if not all, of the speakers at Sunday’s rally oppose vaccines, referring to the rally as being against mandates is a way to drum up wider support and also evade bans from Facebook and Twitter, which frequently take down anti-vaccine misinformation.

“As policies have changed on Facebook, we’ve seen anti-vaccine groups rebrand to ‘pro-medical freedom’ or ‘pro-choice,'" ela disse. “They’re using terms that they know are not going to get censored.”

Dr Robert Malone scheduled to speak

Among those scheduled to speak is Dr Robert Malone, a virologist and immunologist who reivindicações to have created the mRNA technology behind Covid vaccines (other scientists say hundreds contributed significant research into the technology), who recently argued that people were “hypnotised” into believing mainstream ideas around Covid.

Ele disse A experiência de Joe Rogan podcast that “mass formation psychosis” had resulted in a “third of the population basically being hypnotised” into believing what US government figures said on Covid.

“Just like hypnosis, they literally become hypnotised and can be led anywhere,” said Dr Malone, who compared people’s behaviour during the pandemic to nazista Alemanha.

Academics have hit back at these claims saying there was no such concept and that despite Dr Malone’s allegations, the safety and effectiveness of Covid vaccines was not in doubt.

While many conspiracy theorists and anti-Covid campaigners shared the idea on social media in the days after Dr Malone’s interview with Joe Rogan on 31 dezembro, the video was taken down from YouTube.
