Conspiracy theorists wage COVID anti-vax war
Thousands of anti-vaxxers have launched a campaign against a coronavirus vaccine, bombarding Australia‘s leaders and politicians with “pseudoscience”.

Thousands of anti-vaxxers have launched a campaign against a coronavirus vaccine, bombarding Australia‘s leaders and politicians with “pseudoscience”.

The attack has raised fears a growing number of Australians will refuse to be vaccinated against the deadly virus when a cure is made available, with Science Minister Karen Andrews telling the Herald Sun there‘s “enormous risk” people will believe the campaign.

“It‘s just beyond the pale and disinformation or misinformation is dangerous and can lead to loss of life,” Ms Andrews told the publication.


“In my role as Science Minister I‘m actually just not prepared to sit there and allow these people to promote pseudoscience.”

The protest was carried out last night on the Facebook pages of politicians, and arranged by figures in Melbourne‘s anti-vax community.

“This is about digitally waging war on what we, the people, have deemed harmful misinformation,” the event read.

Senator Raff Siccone called on those who intend to refuse the future vaccine to be banned from establishments, telling the Herald Sun conspiracy theorists “ought to bear the consequences of that decision”.
