On the issue of “vaccination” against the Wuhan Coronavirus, the Powers That Be have moved from nudging to the carrots-and-sticks approach to vax passports, and finally to mandatory “vaccination”.
The mandatory jab is our future. Sooner or later it will come to every Western country. The only question for the unjabbed is: What will you do when the vax mandate knocks at your door?
Quebec has not yet imposed a full mandate on its citizens. However, anyone who wants to purchase hard liquor or cannabis must now show proof of vaccination. A large number of stoners and dipsomaniacs have apparently decided that remaining unvaxed is not the hill they want to die on, and have rushed to get the needle.
Meanwhile, Greece is considering imposing a mandate on citizens over 50, modeled on the Italian version.
In the following video, Renato Brunetta, the minister of Public Administration in the government of Mario Draghi, announces that all Italians over the age of 50 must get the vax.
Meanwhile, Austria is imposing a universal vax mandate, prompting major demonstrations in Vienna.

Nehammer: Despite ongoing protests, vaccinations will be mandatory
In Vienna, tens of thousands of people took to the streets against the Corona measures on Saturday. In the center of the Austrian capital, they protested above all against the mandatory vaccination that the government decided on. According to the police, around 40,000 people took part in the demonstration.
According to the police, the protests against the corona measures were mostly peaceful, but there were some arrests. The participants demonstrated in choirs and on posters against the decision of the Austrian government to introduce compulsory vaccination on February 1st.
Despite the ongoing protests against this measure, Federal Chancellor Karl Nehammer declared that the mandatory vaccination should be implemented as planned. “There is no question for me that it will come,” he said in a radio interview on Saturday. Compulsory vaccination is necessary “to show that vaccination is actually the way to ensure that we do not constantly need measures that restrict freedom,” added the Chancellor, referring to the lockdowns that have been imposed since the beginning of the pandemic.
Austria recently recorded an increase in those who tested positive. The seven-day incidence rose again on Saturday, now at 525 cases per 100,000 residents. Nehammer is also one of those infected. According to his own statements, the Chancellor has so far developed “no symptoms”. “The vaccination makes me feel very good,” he said in the home-based interview.
|00:00||We are the first in the EU to implement mandatory vaccination for people over 50 years old.|
|00:05||And this is a given.|
|00:08||As we were the first to implement the green pass.|
|00:11||As we were among the first to implement the strengthened green pass.|
|00:17||So therefore we are not second to anyone in the EU regarding this matter.|
|00:22||And so therefore, regarding this matter, we can consider ourselves satisfied.|
|00:26||As for working from home, we have taken an extraordinary decision.|
|00:33||Both the private and the public sector will be implementing|
|00:38||all the suitable patterns to favor working from home.|
|00:43||Which are already present among their contractual provisions and regulations.|
|00:49||So the private sector will be using as much flexibility as possible,|
|00:53||according to Minister Orlando’s directive.|
|00:56||In order to guarantee safety and basic services and to decrease the infection curve.|
|01:02||The public sector will be doing the same.|
|01:05||The directive is already in force.|
|01:08||In order to guarantee services to households and to enterprises|
|01:12||as efficiently and as safely as possible.|
|01:16||And as Minister Speranza said, by monitoring the infection curve.|
|01:24||This is an important result. Another important result is that the green pass|
|01:29||has been extended to all users of both public and private facilities.|
|01:34||People will need the green pass to go to the bank.|
|01:37||They will need the green pass to go to the notary, to the post office,|
|01:41||to INPS [pension office], to INAIL [workmen’s comp].|
|01:44||They will need it to go everywhere, except to buy groceries.|
|01:51||This was an extraordinary result too.|
|01:55||There was nothing like that in the past. Before that, you could go anywhere,|
|01:59||to the notary, to the bank, to the post office, to INPS, to INAIL, without any certificate.|
|02:04||Without having a swab done, without being vaccinated.|
|02:08||This so-called basic green pass is for all the users of services.|
|02:17||This is a result that will greatly push the unvaccinated population|
|02:24||to get vaccinated.|
|02:27||But we heard that this is a matter the ruling parties are split about.|
|02:30||I am sorry to disappoint you: there is no division; there is no disagreement.|
|02:36||All of this was unanimously approved.|
|02:40||You may not believe it, but it’s the truth. If you intend to make up stories of disagreements, do.|
|02:45||Nevertheless, it was unanimously approved.
