Queensland Sen. Gerard Rennick voiced out his criticism of the donation on Nov. 28, while on the Senate floor. "I find it quite amazing that the federal government thinks they can find A$100 million ($66.11 million) to spend on bureaucrats over in Switzerland, rather than actually addressing the issues from the last pandemic and trying to sort out those issues," he said.
Rennick also mentioned that he speaks with Australians who were injured by the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) injections every day. "My office is still inundated with people who have gone through the protocols," he continued. "They've got specialists saying they've had an injury, and Services Australia won't address the issue."
Back in September, Foreign Minister Penny Wong announced that the Albanese government would provide A$75 million ($49.6 million) in voluntary core funding to the WHO over a five-year period, alongside a further A$25 million ($16.5 million) for its Health Emergencies Program. The money seeks to aid the WHO in "mitigating the risk of future pandemics by strengthening national health systems."
"Australia is committed to playing our part to strengthen the global health system, so we can be better prepared for future shocks," she said. "We need a strong global health system to help keep Australia, our region, and the world safe. This means a strong, capable WHO with the authority to respond quickly and decisively to complex health emergencies." (Related: Australian research institute says WHO must have more power to enforce global pandemic rules.)
"Substantial amounts of Australian public funds are directed at a number of international bureaucratic organizations," the Epoch Times noted. "The Global Fund, an international financing organization aimed at ending epidemics and fulfilling United Nations health goals, has received over A$1 billion ($661 million) from Australia to date."
"In 2022, the Albanese government pledged to contribute A$266 million ($175.9 million) to the fund's seventh replenishment between 2023 and 2025. It followed a A$242 million ($160 million) contribution as part of the fund's sixth replenishment between 2020 and 2022."
Rennick also denounced Albanese's ruling Labor Party for its aversion to a royal commission into its conduct throughout the COVID-19 pandemic.
"The Albanese Labor government said that they were going to have a royal commission into COVID-19, and they've effectively backed down on that," he said. "They're going to have a bunch of bureaucrats [and] a team of three professional 'experts' [to] look into this issue, and they won't allow a Senate inquiry to occur."
The Queensland senator has long opposed Canberra's COVID-19 mandates, particularly those related to vaccines. In late 2021, Rennick and two others – South Australia Sen. Alex Antic and Queensland Sen. Matt Canavan – consistently crossed the floor to withhold support from the Morrison government when it came to COVID-related legislation.
Rennick's remarks about vaccine injuries remaining uncompensated are also linked to the Australian government's COVID-19 Vaccine Claims Scheme. "Claimants are only eligible if they experienced a number of listed side effects, which the government has consistently updated," according to the Epoch Times.
"For instance – in April, three claimable clinical conditions were added to the list of vaccine side effects made eligible for claims. Before April, those who experienced these adverse side effects were not eligible for compensation."
However, 55-year-old Mark Briggs has not been so lucky when it comes to attaining compensation. The Queensland miner suffered a heart injury and almost died thrice after being injected with just one dose of the AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine.
He cannot seek compensation from the Anglo-Swedish vaccine manufacturer as a result of Canberra granting pharmaceutical firms legal immunity during the COVID-19 vaccine rollout. Moreover, his injury is not a known side effect of the AstraZeneca vaccine – despite heart attack being an issue for some other COVID-19 injections.
