The Netherlands is a neoliberal eugenicist dystopia where the government and "public health" agencies simply refuse to carry out their duties to protect the public from disease (in violation of the constitution and at least 3 international treaties), even most healthcare workers refuse to wear masks to protect vulnerable people, and no one cares.

I once again quote the Human Rights Board: "Not taking protective measures or measures aimed at preventing the spread of the pathogenic virus is not an option in terms of human rights."

The minister is acting in violation of the constitution and at least 3 international treaties. Where is the outrage in the media?

"Our vulnerable people need help urgently. Not after vacation, not in a few weeks, but now. If their health is not protected even in hospitals, we have deprived them of their most basic security. They cannot go protest. Who will stand up for them?"

"Who will do anything? Who cares? It is a desperate situation and it is being completely ignored. It is really so upsetting to me. These are just people and they matter."

I know we're upset, scared, and angry now; as we should.

But where is the media attention, the outrage, the calls for action, when it's the bodily autonomy of disabled people that is tossed aside?

When society pretends is "over" now that it's "only" dangerous for those with "pre-existing conditions"?

For 2+ years I've been forced to stay home. Getting COVID will probably leave me bedridden permanently. No one cares.

minister for "public health":

"The chance that you or I get pneumonia is not high." "People are vulnerable because of an underlying illness."

Absurdly concludes preventing infections — using masks, vaccines, antivirals — doesn't matter.

"These people would not be able to lead a normal life."

Because of his policy.

By his logic, children are vulnerable, thus preventing cars from driving at high speed on playgrounds isn't worth doing.

"We have been lied to by the minister who does not promote public health. Every infection is a chance for and all the serious symptoms that go with it."

"[...] that human rights oblige the government to protect people in the most vulnerable situations and to ensure that the long-term measures to combat the pandemic do not disproportionately affect them. As supervisor of compliance with the UN Convention on Disability in the Netherlands, the Board specifically points to the position of people with disabilities. They were disproportionately affected by measures to contain the pandemic."

College voor de Rechten van de Mens [Dutch Human Rights Board] (translated):

"The failure to take protective measures or measures aimed at preventing the spread of the pathogenic virus is not an option in terms of human rights. In that respect, it is important to note that not taking measures not only has consequences for the right to health, but also for the exercise of many other (social) human rights and for the functioning of the economy and society.

Dutch covid policy (translated):

"During the discussions on the long-term strategy, both the SCP and the Human Rights Board pointed out that such a policy is not allowed from a constitutional point of view. The minister was not interested."

"Society is about to change beyond recognition. We are about to exclude large groups of people and not even blink. These people have equal rights. This needs to be discussed."

"[...] when we see how disabled people are still being subject to longstanding policies of social murder, it becomes quite clear that rather than changing, the world has remained just the same...only worse. This video examines disability as a form of oppression directly tied to the labour relations of society. A form of oppression that non-disabled people on the left need to be more proactive in resisting alongside disabled people."
