[SaneVax: Parents from Belgium recently united to raise awareness of safety issues involved when ‘one-size-fits-all’ vaccination programs are implemented. A demonstration outside the Ministry of Health sent a clear message that these parents believe that it is a parents right to choose whether they vaccinate their children or not and that this right is being slowly taken from them by their government.]
Parents Protest Against Vaccinations by Placing Tiny White Coffins Outside Ministry of Health
By Christina England
On 21st April 2012 a group of Belgium parents whose children had been injured following vaccinations, placed a row of tiny white coffins outside the Ministry of Health. Parents demonstrated their anger by attaching two vaccine syringes in the sign of a crucifix onto each coffin, symbolizing the death of a child snatched cruelly by vaccinations.
One coffin inscribed with the words ‘RIP Notre Fille Stacy’ meaning ‘Rest in Peace Our Daughter Stacy’ stood out from all the rest. Underneath carefully placed was a photo of a baby girl dressed in white. What message could be stronger and more poignant than this, to demonstrate the anger felt by grieving parents on the first day of the ‘World Immunization Week’ arranged by the WHO?
After all, World Immunization Week was arranged to unite countries worldwide, for a week of vaccination campaigns, public education and information sharing, under one big umbrella, with the idea of promoting vaccination awareness. I somehow do not think that was the kind of ‘vaccination campaigning’ or ‘vaccination awareness’ that the WHO had in mind.
The parents spent the day distributing leaflets on the dangers of vaccination. They displayed placards demanding vaccination freedom for their country.
