Hundreds of world leaders issue warning about consequences of coronavirus lockdowns

The mainstream media is hyping up the spike in COVID-19 cases in some states such as Texas and Florida in an attempt to indict their Republican governors’ push to reopen and allow Americans to return to normal life.

The goal is to push Americans back into their homes for renewed lockdowns, but hundreds of world leaders have joined together to issue a dire warning about the unintended consequences of extended lockdowns. 

More than 500 prominent world leaders, academics, and Nobel Laureates wrote an open letter entitled “A Call to Defend Democracy,” released on June 25, which claimed that beyond the direct risk to the health of global citizens, COVID-19 presents “a political crisis that threatens the future of liberal democracy.”

The authors highlighted the fact that authoritarian regimes and governments are using the crisis to tighten their grip on the peoples within that nation, endangering foundational liberties in the name of public health.

“The COVID-19 crisis is an alarming wake-up call, an urgent warning that the freedoms we cherish are at risk and that we must not take them for granted,” the writers warned.

The text continued:

Authoritarian regimes, not surprisingly, are using the crisis to silence critics and tighten their political grip,” the authors note. “But even some democratically elected governments are fighting the pandemic by amassing emergency powers that restrict human rights and enhance state surveillance without regard to legal constraints, parliamentary oversight, or timeframes for the restoration of constitutional order.

Parliaments are being sidelined, journalists are being arrested and harassed, minorities are being scapegoated, and the most vulnerable sectors of the population face alarming new dangers as the economic lockdowns ravage the very fabric of societies everywhere.

Signatories of the warning included 13 Nobel prize winners, 34 former national presidents, 7 former vice presidents, 20 former prime ministers, the former secretary-general of NATO, the Secretary-General Organization of American States, a former U.S. Secretary of State, and numerous governors, congresspersons, members of parliament, and government ministers.

“Repression will not help to control the pandemic,” the letter continued. “Silencing free speech, jailing peaceful dissenters, suppressing legislative oversight, and indefinitely canceling elections all do nothing to protect public health.”

“On the contrary, these assaults on freedom, transparency, and democracy will make it more difficult for societies to respond quickly and effectively to the crisis through both government and civic action.”

Does any of this sound familiar? As fervor surrounding the protests following the death of George Floyd fades, the mainstream media and Democrat politicians have again turned their focus back to attempting to control Americans using COVID-19 as an excuse.

“Democracy is under threat, and people who care about it must summon the will, the discipline, and the solidarity to defend it,” the leaders continued. “At stake are the freedom, health, and dignity of people everywhere.”

  1. When SARS hit nothing was done and it was as bad Covid19. I think this is fighting republicans and Trump.

    1. I agree. Closing everything down again is a bad mistake. Our researchers are working feverishly to get a vaccine and I think that will help with this pandemic. People do need to wear mask when out in public especially in close proximity to others. Still use soap/water at home and carry sanitizer at all times when in public.

    2. Of cause it is!! ELECTION YEAR is upon us!!!! The Dumborats mantra is ET TRUMP anyway you can!!!! What a damn bunch of sniveling whining ,conniving , cry babies they are .. To think most run or should I say ruin AMERICA!!! People wake the hell up!!!! You are being sold OUT!!!!!

  2. Democrats want to see who’s obedient it’s all about control VOTE RED we need to turn New Mexico RED the democrats don’t bring jobs here tourism is a joke where’s the amusement parks or anything else worth seeing more than once not in New Mexico

  3. Every state needs to turn red if we are to save our Republic. All this turmoil and insanity needs to be brought to a STOP. THE ONLY WAY IS TO GET EVERY MARXIST/LIBERAL OUT OF OFFICE AND/OR DEPORTED WITH NO RETURN AVAILABLE. THOSE WHO COMMITTED TREASON OR CRIMES PERMANENTLY PUT IN PRISON.

  4. All part of Pelosi plan ,has been from the start of the virus..got to stop trumps great economy…The witch and her fake MSM and her BLM has blood on their hands….dont let a crisis go to waste..these are some sick people..

    1. Jon Myers, up yours? Is that the best you can come up with? Just goes to show you know everyone here is RIGHT!!!

  5. It is not SAFE TO WEAR A DAMN MASK! They are a death warrant and do absolutely nothing to protect anyone ever!! The only mask that might protect you or anyone else is a face fitted filter type mask and they are not 100% effective! An N95 mask does have a filter but is not sealed ss cotaminants will get in and the filter only works while breathing in and not outward so it not only doesn’t protect the person wearing it but does nothing to protect people around them. They lie and say that wearing a cloth mask will help prevent people around you from being infected but this is a bare faced lie and to add insult to injury these masks are nothing more than health risks because your body can no longer rid itself of bad toxins or other germs thru exhaling because this all gets caught in the mask and you breath it rigjt back into your lungs which is nothing but an illness looking for a place to happen! Surgical masks are just that! They are made for sterile environments and have no effect on anything you may breath in or out in a normal unsterile world!! It’s nothing but lunacy and a dam lie just like 95% of what these liars tell us 24/7!!!

    1. This is absolutely true. The CO2 & toxic exhale only serve to deposit more poison in the body.
      Wait several months & see the ramifications of “masks”. Vitamin D3 5000 IU daily along with
      25 mg of zinc & handwashing & distancing are the best defenses.
      This is from R.N. with experience. A healthy immune system is where protection is fostered.
      Vaccines aren’t the magic bullet.

  6. this virus was designed to upset this election –AND IT WILL COME BACK TIME AND TIME AGAIN TO UPSET OUR LIVES –THEY ARE USING IT TO CONTROL US –DONT BE FOOLED BY THEIR LIES —IF THEY DIDNT TRY TO DISTRACT US BIDEN WOULD STAND AS MUCH OF A CHANCE OF SURVIVING AS A FART IN A PAHRUMP WIND STORM –1 AND ZERO CHANCE OF WINNING AS IT IS–HE IS A PUPPET WITH SOROS AND BLOOMBERG PULLING HIS STRINGS –IT IS TRUMP— OR BIDEN AND YOU WILL DIE UNDER BIDEN WITH THE N W O IN CHARGE

  7. Thank You! My instincts, my gut feeling has been telling me the same thing. Breathing back in toxins just exhaled. No fresh air!
