[00:00:00] [00:00:30] Dr. Kat Lindley: So for next speaker we have Yohan Tengra, he’s an independent researcher and a functional medicine consultant who has spent the last six years of his life in relentless pursuit of the truth in areas such as anarchy and natural law, health and nutrition sciences, [inaudible] economics, the bank system, geopolitics. [00:00:52] Yohan has spent years researching who controls the public health system in India and their massive conflict of interest. He’s also part of the Awaken India Movement. Thank you Yohan so much for joining us. [00:01:06] Yohan Tengra: Thank you so much for having me, nice to be here. [00:01:09] So I think I speak a little bit about what our experiences have been like in India, basically reversing all these mandates that the state and the center impose on us, the legal system and everything, which we challenge. [00:01:21] World Council for Health also doing great work putting out a great credible medical information. So that’s kind of like my journey of awakening had a big part where I was really, you know, deeply researching, health, nutrition, sciences, and functional medicine mainly. [00:01:35] So I basically come from a functional medicine background. I work at a functional medicine company in India where we reversed chronic diseases by using advanced lab tests, but chemistry interpretation, and then really using, you know, science-based national methods, to kind of turn back chronic diseases and we’ve seen many kinds of diseases. [00:01:51] So I always had that kind of background of really understanding health from a very holistic perspective. And that helped me a lot in terms of being able to do my bit in the last two years to be able to challenge the mandates in India. So I always was researching a lot of topics and then the pandemic kind of came in 2020 and a couple of us concerns as in you know, we are trying to find each other because in the west, like the awareness about these subjects has been quite a bit. You can say since a few years, I would say since a couple of decades, because many people you could say like Alex Jones, David Icke, they’ve really spoken about a lot of these things that are happening right now, many years back, so they were warning a lot of people back then. And that’s how I got into it as well, like several years back, after listening to some of these people. But after the pandemic came, we really didn’t have that kind of awareness out here because in India, we didn’t have these kind of people researching and making content and educating people about it. [00:02:40] So we kind of had to start from scratch. And we found each other, a couple of like passionate people who already wanted to challenge the mandates and all the unscientific stuff that is going on, justified by the virus, which we now know is like clearly unscientific and doesn’t make any sense from a rational and reasonable perspective. [00:02:57] So we started kind of, you know, working on all fronts. We wanted to create like a ground-level resistance as well, we wanted to create resistance in the legal system and the courts. So we’re really maximizing all opportunities. We’re doing protests, holding public meetings and stuff, but we’ve always like we have to take this up legally because we don’t really have that many people on the streets, and to be able to challenge these kinds of mandates, we really have to do something from the level of the courts. So thankfully we found three really good groups of lawyers, actually there’s big news that’s come out of India’s Supreme court today, I don’t think a lot of you guys know about this, but, one of the cases that the Awaken India Movement have assisted a lawyer in filing, that actually got a verdict from the Supreme court today and the Supreme court of India really quashed down vaccine mandates and upheld each individual’s right to bodily autonomy. So I’ll kind of tie it into, this journey we’ve had legally. [00:03:46] So I’ve, worked for Awaken India Movement like I’m a part of the core team. So that’s kind of the name under which a lot of us who got together, at the beginning of the pandemic, they really put up a challenge, working under that umbrella. And then we’re basically liaising with a lot of lawyers groups, so today the case that we won in the Supreme court, Prashant Bhushan was one of them. [00:04:03] Our group has been working with the lawyers that won the case today by assisting them with research. Personally, I also have helped, with my background and knowledge in health medicines, vaccines. I put a lot of that to good use and help to draft all the petitions and the research that went for them personally as well. [00:04:20] So our group basically worked with these three groups of lawyers. One is Colin Gonsalves and the other is Prashant Bhushan And then There’s Nilesh and Dipali Ohja Advocate Nilesh and Dipali Ohja who works for the Indian bar association, you guys must be knowing of right now I think Dipali is also doing a panel at the Better Way conference. So actually we started working with these people sometime last year and we filed these petitions in the Supreme court, through two lawyers groups last year and, they released all the petitions, like they weren’t taking them up for a long time. And then after a couple of months, we really thought that not much is going to come out of the legal system. So we just came back and we started focusing more on activism and things like that. [00:04:58] So we actually met this group of lawyers after we came back from Delhi, which is a central capital of the nation. And then, like me, a friend of mine Nilesh and Dipali we all have been working very closely, after convincing them of course, it took us some time for our group to really, make them understand the kind of dangers we are facing in terms of these mandates and restrictions that have been put on us. [00:05:23] And then through them and through the other groups of lawyers, we’ve all filed many cases in many high courts, all across the nation. We’ve won many cases in other high courts as well. Two months back, we actually won a case that we had filed against vaccine mandates in our state of Maharashtra, in India, that’s where I’m from. I’m from Mumbai, Maharashtra, so we filed a case here and then, through persistent efforts of our lawyers, that’s mainly Nilesh who’s the Dipali ma’am’s husband, and he put up some brilliant arguments in court in front of the chief justice of the Bombay high court. And after really having many, many hearings we finally got a positive victory in our favor and the judge basically ruled that, it was illegal for the state government to pass these orders that mandated vaccines and masks, and that petition is still not over that petition basically made the judge convince the state to remove the mandate. So they removed the mandates. [00:06:15] And now we’re basically asking for the fines to be paid back. All the money that has been extorted from people over these last two years. we are working to get that back. That hearing is going to happen in June. And then we’re also working for, prosecution of the authorities. So all the people in power in our state who have passed these illegal orders that have now been declared to be illegal, they’re also pushing for them to be prosecuted under various sections of the Indian penal code. So that case is still ongoing, but we did achieve victory two months back and today we’ve got the big news that’s come through, one of the other groups of lawyers that we’ve worked at that mainly advocate Prashant Bhushan. so he did a case that has been going on for the last month and the news has just broken today that the Supreme court has squashed, mandates all across India. So basically, according to the law now, the Supreme court has made it illegal for any state government to mandate vaccines and this was a really big issue for a lot of people for a very long time because millions of people in India were not able to, you can say, go to the jobs, get their salaries, or to be able to like access public transport or, access a wide variety of services, visas and going abroad, all of that had got stalled because of, you can say these mandates. [00:07:31] So now that the Supreme court has quashed it basically like across India, it will be illegal to mandate vaccines on anyone. And they’ve upheld the right to bodily autonomy. So they’ve done it under that principle. So which makes it a sound judgment. The judgment is not really out yet, but, once it’s out there, we’ll speak about it more and we’ll actually get to know the details of what the Supreme court has ruled now for now, it’s just a news that they have been quashed. [00:07:56] So that’s been a little bit of a legal story. And a lot of us in India are honestly like celebrating and we are happy now that the hard work’s paid off and it has many months of despair and just feeling like it’s not going anywhere for quite a long time, because we were doing a lot of work that we, in terms of the amount of notices we’ve sent, even before the mandates got repealed, we helped a lot of people with, sending notices against authorities and drafting formats for them; basically legal documents, scientific documents to help people fight the mandates that way. So we helped a lot of people overall, even before these mandates were repealed to our group, Awaken India Movement, but I feel that now that we’ve achieved this legal victory, it really makes it easier for us to go for the other matters as well, because we all know that the issue is not really ending here. [00:08:43] Dr. Rima Laibow: It’s going to go on to, you can say much more nefarious agendas because that’s what this whole thing is about. It’s really about creating like a technocratic society of control by a few, basically. So towards that direction, I feel we have a lot more work to do against a wide variety of issues that are making in that moment to standing for. [00:09:02] So I think this victory is going to make it much more easier for us to gain credibility amongst the population as, as well as make it legally easier for us in court as well for the judges to be able to take our other points more seriously. So that’s a little update about that. That’s mainly what I wanted to share today. [00:09:20] If y’all have any questions and feel free to ask. [00:09:25] Dr. Kat Lindley: Shabnam has a question, but before we go there, I really just want to say, I’ve read about this update this morning as soon as I woke up and it’s an incredible win because this is medical, legal an every profession issue and it’s wonderful to see that courts are responding to it. And I truly believe that most of our countries have things in their constitution, their bill of rights, whatever it is that can protect the people and it’s a great, great win for India and it’s so wonderful to hear this today on this wonderful day. [00:09:55] So Shabnam, if you’d like to ask a question, please. [00:09:59] Yohan Tengra: Thank you so much. I just like to add one thing to what you mentioned. So since you were talking about our constitutional rights, that way, in all our contributions, I think are all, all across the world, like we do have an inalienable individual, like natural rights, but actually the constitutions always have this thing that they can be subject to removal in an emergency or some other kind of, you can say situations as defined in the name of public health or something like that. [00:10:25] So that kind of what makes it, you can say the battle’s not fully, fully over yet, because the Judge’s bench, when they were giving the statement today in court, they were saying that this is only under these circumstances and in the future, if there’s more evidence that comes in, or if a circumstance changes, maybe they would be able to like, get it back or something like that. So definitely, but it’s at least it’s set a good precedent and we also have like a new bill that some of our parliamentarians have drafted. That’s going to come up in parliament in the next session. Basically it has a very dubious clause that states that they’re giving the power to authorities like local authorities to be able to force vaccination, force testing, or be able to forcefully take people to quarantined centers. [00:11:11] So we do have a bill like that that’s coming up, so they’re working to create more awareness against it. Also the WHO pandemic treaty is something that they’re all concerned about out here. So we’re working to raise more awareness, we’ll be doing some more protests and our work of trying to wake up people is constantly going on. So the more people that wake up out here, the more support we have and the more things we’ll be able to accomplish. Just wanted to add that. [00:11:33] Jennifer Hibberd: I have a few little questions to ask and can I then go over to you Shabnam, because I know that you’re gonna carry it forward into the LAC. [00:11:39] Um, From the newsroom, is there a chance for the Indian Supreme court to reverse the decision? What would you say was critical in getting this legal victory? [00:11:49] Yohan Tengra: I don’t think it’s possible for them to reverse it as such, because it’s a judgment given after the case has been heard for a very long time, for many months. In fact, as I was mentioning earlier, they didn’t, they did not even take the cases for a couple of months. [00:12:03] And then through our movement, we actually got many emails sent to the high court and Supreme court registrars and then they were kind of forced to take up the cases because of all the pressure that, uh, you know, had been built. So I don’t think it’s possible for them to reverse it that way legally. And as far as what happens when passionate people really just put themselves into the cause, as I’ve seen this in my life as well, like when I’m really into something and just like doing it for the sake of truth and love and freedom. [00:12:30] Like I’ve always attracted people towards me who’ve helped me like, achieve what I wanted. So since all of us kind of attracted each other, you know, the best legal minds, the best researchers that way, I think it’s a fusion of all of that combined with our very enthusiastic and passionate movement out here that we have going, that’s been supporting us and that’s been helping us in terms of, uh, coming out for the protest or financially contributing. [00:12:53] It’s been a, it’s been a mixture of everything that’s helped to make this happen. [00:12:56] Jennifer Hibberd: And I have a question from Keren Epstein-Gilboa; do I understand correctly that people are now going to sue employers and other sources who enforced the mandates? If true, what a fantastic precedence that may be used all over the world. [00:13:13] Yohan Tengra: I wouldn’t say sue employers, like certainly someone can do that because now we have it as a judgment, as law in our country that it’s illegal to force at least COVID-19 vaccines on people. Like we do have that as precedent now. So definitely for employers mandating it and if a person is going there and he’s not being allowed, then, if he challenges that and they’ll listen to him and they take it back, I don’t think the case will be filed, but someone, at least, if they’re like intending on it and if an employer is violating their rights, then I think that they would be able to take the employer to court and sue them, that oppurtunity does open up, now that we have this precedent, yes. [00:13:49] Jennifer Hibberd: Thank you. And from Thomas Binder; unlike in other countries, the rule of law still seems to exist in India, at least to a certain extent. Is there no libel or persecution of critical doctors, lawyers, and judges in India? [00:14:03] Yohan Tengra: Oh, that’s a very interesting question, actually. So I would like to add one thing about the legal system as well. Like, it’s a nice and good thing that we won, but I would say that the judgment has come too late. Like we had filed these cases in May of 2021. Ideally, in India, we’ve had other cases like the farmers protests or other kinds of, you can say more hot button issues, like more political or religious issues, and they get taken up by the Supreme court in a matter of a couple of days and the judgments on them come very quickly because these are burning issues. But they basically ignored our cases for a very long time, didn’t even take them up for hearing for like five, six months after we put pressure on them, they were forced to take it. [00:14:41] There was one bench of judges that was quite biased. Like, we remember the first few hearlings of this case that we won today, the first hearning. We remember the judges mentioned something like, if we entertain this petition, then it will fuel vaccine hesitancy as the WHO is saying. [00:14:55] The judges were really thinking like that. And it took us a very long time because we had such brilliant lawyers really. You know, I see most lawyers out here in India, also, we’ve struggled to find fighter lawyers, like lawyers who actually want to fight for rights or fight for people’s fundamental rights and freedom. [00:15:11] They’re very few and far between, because most lawyers are just trying to appease the judges or trying to get good judgments from the judges. Like they’re always nice to them or not really challenging bad things that are happening. So we were really lucky to find these lawyers awake to take it up this way. [00:15:26] My point is that the judgments come too late and a lot of people have got vaccinated. So definitely I’ll say like India’s judicial system is working, but it’s not just working because okay, we have this constitution and it enumerates our rights, from the way we understand it, if the public movement wasn’t there to put pressure on the judges to really take this up, this wouldn’t have been possible. They would have been able to ignore the issue or give a negative ruling much more easily. So I think we forced it to work because of the kind of numbers we’re building now. [00:15:55] And the second question about the persecution of doctors. A lot of them do get persecuted. There are doctors who I know who are in our network, who’ve been challenged by the medical boards for some of the statements they’ve made against vaccines. And our lawyers are helping them out because we have a good group of lawyers now that are working to help our activists and doctors who get into trouble like this, I mean, they are trying to target, but you know, we have people behind them. We have lawyers behind them. So we are also challenging them back. [00:16:21] Jennifer Hibberd: Thank you very much. And that was really important what you just said too, about how it takes the people to make this movement happen. You know, people like yourself come forward, but you really need the overwhelming support of the population. Thank you so much. Your work is so commendable and all of us, you. [00:16:40] Shabnam Palesa: Thanks Jennifer. One last question for you. Yohan ,we now have the Afro Asian Sovereignty Coalition, so there certainly is enough appreciation and a growing awareness of the kind of work that’s coming out of India in particular and we’ve been working with Dipali and yourself for a while now, so certainly congratulations on everything that’s been happening. And of course, using a multifaceted approach certainly is proving to be quite effective. [00:17:02] Now India does have a long and established history of pushing back against the big pharma or pharmaceutical industry, whether that’s the evergreening of cancer drugs, or preventing generic drugs from being made where this could actually save people’s lives and then the courts have stood in favor of the people and of course for the right to health and freedom. But beyond this COVID-19 chapter, there’s also the matter of accountability from Bill Gates and the pharmaceutical industry, for example, experimenting on Indian children without informed consent and the injuries and deaths that have been caused as a result. [00:17:36] How do you think there’s going to be accountability for those kind of medical crimes, given the fact that there is a perception that the Indian government is to a large extent captured by these industries. And having said that it’s not the only government that is captured by these industries. [00:17:54] So in your view, how would accountability happen for these other medical crimes? [00:17:59] Yohan Tengra: I would like to speak a little bit about the history of the Gates trial, two parts that happened in India. Funnily enough, like the lawyer that we are working with at the Supreme court, you know, one of the cases that we filed in India as against the adverse event reporting system and how there are many issues and that the system’s not really being advertised properly, so a lot of people aren’t going to even know that they have to file an adverse event if something happened after the vaccination, to them, like a bad medical event or something. So this same lawyer who helped us to draft this and to put this in the Supreme court, he’s also been fighting the case that has been going on since 2012, to hold the Gates and these other bodies accountable and our own country as well, who colluded with them. Like the Indian council for medical research and the DCGI, drugs controller general, like these local bodies colluded with part and, uh, you know, The Gates Foundation to actually engage in these trials. [00:18:50] I’ve done a lot of work on this. Like I’ve actually done investigative reports on how our entire public health system is captured by the globalists and this whole NGO complex of Gates and Rockefeller, et cetera, I’ve done a very detail piece on that. So, coming to the point, like as far as holding Gates and all these people accountable goes, that case is still going on, so our lawyers are still pursuing that. But we’ve also filed some fresh cases through [inaudible] as basically there’s one vaccine murder case that happened when one young person actually in Maharashtra only it’s a very touching story. Because we took this boy’s mother to court as one of our hearings in the Bombay high court for this case that we won two months back. And she lost her child, I think three hours after he got vaccinated, so, the state government had imposed restrictions that people who don’t take the vaccine, they won’t be able to use the public transport. And this guy wanted to go to his office to keep his job, so he was kind of forced to get vaccinated and then to go to his office and then he ended up dying. And three others like this three hours after they got vaccinated. So [inaudible] has basically done a case where he’s asked for the arrest and prosecution and attaching the property of Gates and other people who have manufactured the AstraZeneca vaccine in India. That’s CoviShield. So those of you don’t know, like the serum Institute of India, they manufacture most of the vaccines that go to all children across the world for all like a wide variety of diseases. So India has a vaccine manufacturing hub in many ways. So we have asked for the prosecution of these people, I think also that as our movement gets bigger, we’re not just focused on the bit players or political [inaudible], we also have a good understanding of the outside forces that are helping to impose this whole agenda on us. So we definitely should be thinking in a way that all of us like-minded groups across the world need to collaborate and on a worldwide scale, be able to hold these people accountable because these agendas are really global so if we are going to look at it from a country perspective, I don’t think it’s really going to work out. And individually, as far as like what we can do in courts, we already trying to do in terms of holding these people accountable for their crimes. [00:20:57] Shabnam Palesa: Thank you Yohan. And also to the Awaken India Movement, we look forward to seeing you and Dipali at the Better Way Conference at the end of may. Thank you very much. [00:21:06] Yohan Tengra: Thank you so much, Shabnam, thanks! [00:21:08]
