Petition for an Apology and Compensation from the Queensland Government Regarding Mandatory COVID-19 Vaccination Orders

Petition for an Apology and Compensation from the Queensland Government Regarding Mandatory COVID-19 Vaccination Orders

We, the undersigned, call for an apology from the Queensland government to all employees who were forced to take a vaccine against their will, or who were punished for not taking the said vaccine.

 


1.    Background: In a landmark decision on 27/02/2024 spanning 115 pages, Justice Glenn Martin deemed the mandatory vaccination orders issued by Police Commissioner Katarina Carroll in December 2021 and the similar directive by John Wakefield, the Director-General of Queensland Health, as unlawful under the Human Rights Act.

2.    Supreme Court Decision: The court’s judgement explicitly prohibited the enforcement of these vaccination directives, recognising them as infringing upon the rights of individuals. 

3.    The Call for Apology: In light of the Supreme Court's findings, it becomes imperative for the Queensland Government to acknowledge the overreach of these mandates and the distress they have caused among the our state's most valued workers, first responders. These workers must be apologised to, urgently. 

4.    The Petition's Purpose:

  • Call upon the Queensland Government to issue a formal apology to the police officers, health workers, and paramedics impacted by the unlawful COVID-19 vaccination orders.

 

  • Urge the Queensland Government to review and reassess its approach to public health mandates, ensuring that future directives fully comply with legal standards and respect individual human rights.

 

  • Recommend the establishment of a mechanism for redress for those adversely affected by the mandates, recognising the personal and professional turmoil they endured.
