This speech by Christine Anderson, a German politician and a Member of the European Parliament, was given at a press conference supporting the rights of workers against the mandatory Digital Certificate.
Here is a transcript of the speech.
“But it is not the goal that renders a system oppressive. It is always the methods by which the goal is pursued. Whenever a government claims to have the people’s interest at heart, you need to think again.
“In the entire history of mankind, there has never been a political elite sincerely concerned about the well-being of regular people. What makes any of us think that it is different now?
“If the age of Enlightenment has brought forth anything, then certainly this: Never take anything any government tells you at face value. Always question everything any government does or does not do. Always look for ulterior motives, and always ask Cui Bono? – Who benefits? Whenever a political elite pushes an agenda this hard and resorts to extortion and manipulation to get their way, you can almost always be sure your benefit is definitely not what they had at heart.
“As far as I am concerned, I will not be vaccinated with anything that has not been properly vetted and tested and has shown no sound scientific evidence that the benefits outweigh the disease itself in possible long-term side effects, which to this day we don’t know anything about.
“I will not be reduced to a mere guinea pig by getting vaccinated with an experimental drug, and I will most assuredly not get vaccinated because my government tells me to, and promises in return I will be granted freedom. Let us be clear about one thing: No one grants me freedom, for I am a free person.
“So I dare the European Commission and the German government: Throw me in jail, lock me up and throw away the key for all I care. But you will never be able to coerce me into being vaccinated if I, the free citizen that I am, choose not to be vaccinated.”
