WSWS readers defend Zero-COVID advocate Dr David Berger | #socialmedia

The WSWS continues to receive statements in defence of Dr David Berger, a respected Australian physician and dedicated zero-COVID advocate who is being threatened with deregistration by the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA) over his social media condemnations of the government’s “let it rip” coronavirus policies.

Just as there is an effort to silence courageous experts like Dr Berger, those who defend them are being muzzled too. 

On July 21, the Socialist Equality Party (Australia) Twitter account was locked over a video in defence of Dr Berger and free speech. While the campaign to reinstate the @SEP_Australia Twitter account was a success, with it being restored late Wednesday night, Twitter has failed to explain why it censored the SEP in the first place, and why it took so long for the measure to be overturned. This is striking, given that Twitter has now admitted the video broke no rules.

This blatant act of political censorship underscores the efforts of the ruling elite to suppress exposures of the homidicidal “let it rip” policies, as they are causing the worst surge of the pandemic to date. Such attacks must be opposed by the broadest layers of workers, young people and professionals.

Since the publication of our first article on July 8, calling for a campaign in Dr. Berger’s defence, the WSWS has published thirteen articles compiling statements of support.

Statements of support can be emailed here. Please indicate in the email how you would like to be identified in our next article, and if you want to include a photo, please attach one to the email.

It is very frightening to see the kind of censorship and punishment that has been brought upon Dr. Berger. I admire Dr. Berger and those like him that work to inform and protect the public.

It is Orwellian, the control these government groups have in terms of censorship and the amount of power they wield over the professionals they regulate. There are many parallels to Assange and the battles he has faced. Hope people start opening their eyes and minds and pay attention to what is really going on and why.
