'Right to life' (part 2): coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 and the disease it causes COVID-19
Updated: May 15
Legendary conservationist and filmmaker Sir David Attenborough has recently warned the world of challenges far more severe than COVID-19 in the next five to 10 years (see references below).
I don't know who wrote this poem, but it's beautiful.. ♥️
We fell asleep in one world, and woke up in another.
Suddenly Disney is out of magic,
Paris is no longer romantic,
New York doesn't stand up anymore,
the Chinese wall is no longer a fortress,
and Mecca is empty.
Hugs & kisses suddenly become weapons,
and not visiting parents & friends becomes an act of love.
Suddenly you realise that power,
beauty & money are worthless,
and can't get you the oxygen you're fighting for.
The world continues its life and it is beautiful.
It only puts humans in cages.
I think it's sending us a message: "You are not necessary.
The air, earth, water and sky without you are fine.
When you come back, remember that you are my guests.
Not my masters."
Amnesty International in this video lays out clearly the rule OF law logical of their human rights based approach to vaccine distribution. It is up to each of us to demand from our governments our full human rights.
Everyone has the UN right to life, right to health, right to enjoy the benefits of scientific progress and its applications including vaccines : This requires that vaccines are available, accessible, affordable, acceptable and of good quality.
It is the duty of States to ensure that we all receive our full human rights including no discrimination, etc. (for more details please watch Amnesty International video below).
WTPOHK's 'right to life' series of blogs looks at different aspects of the supreme UN human right.
Part 2 'coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 and the disease it causes COVID-19' is the result of the new paradigm of Earth's healthy inter-dependency and our UN supreme 'right to life' : i.e. we have COVID-19 to teach us to become inter-dependent for the health of all onboard Earth.
By consciously focusing on our personal and collective 'right to life' we will, through inter-dependent practices such as democracy, find our way to live at ease with COVID-19 in our healthier new 'normal' life with Earth and all onboard her.
Just getting a vaccination is not enough! More importantly, based on our personal commitment to the 'right to life', we need to shift into the new paradigm to become inter-dependent for the health and wellbeing of all onboard Earth.
We must consciously choose and act upon the 'right to life' NOT the 'fight for life'
In part 1 'Fight for life' compelled by greed and now consumed by it' did you consciously choose the 'right to life' ?
The United Nations supreme human right is the 'right to life'. In the UN letter to China "Mandates of the UN special rapporteurs 19 February 2020 on arrests of HK medics during protests" rapporteurs wrote (bold format added):
"..[i]n its General comment No. 36 (CCPR/C/GC/36), the Human Rights Committee has stressed that the right to life is the supreme right from which no derogation is permitted.."
Because we have the 'right to life' we don't have to 'fight for life'!
Choosing the 'right to life', to awaken and take personal responsibility, reverses our personal and human collective dis-ease with life. The key is to consciously take a stand on personal and collective responsibility for life and humanity : To do this we must first acknowledge and respect our feelings - then based upon our feelings we take positive and healthy actions.
It is our awareness and focus on our supreme human 'right to life' that will deliver the healthy inter-dependency with Earth that humanity needs to live at ease with COVID-19 : This change of global consciousness will in time lead humanity to collectively resolve our man-made problem of global climate change.
In the new paradigm we must fully live the 'right to life' as we grow our consciousness through awareness in healthy inter-dependency with all on Earth!
HK people have experience from SARS in 2002-2003 which was re-applied in HK since January 2020 with the Wuhan virus SARS-CoV-2 : HK people acted together in unity, strict social distancing, self-quarantines, outside of home always wearing face masks, multiple times daily washing hands, etc.
Unless we are first able to feel and face our grief over the change of lifestyle required by the paradigm shift, we will be unable to move on :
This is very similar to the HIV/AIDS grief experienced by Gay men starting in the 1980's ; i.e. humanity needs to urgently and effectively deal with grief to move on to live a safer lifestyle for all on Earth.
HK's doubly whammy was CCP's universal and equal suffrage political crisis made worse by CCP's Wuhan virus SARS-CoV-2
CCP is a virus that creates viruses! CCP is busy spreading its viruses world wide!
CCP and HK government are in breach of UN obligations including ICCPR, Joint Declaration and the rule OF law : Today communist HK only has CCP's arbitrary rule BY law as exampled by its 1 July 2020 'national security law'.
Mass peaceful protests against the HK government's proposed extradition legislation started in HK on 9 June 2019 and fizzled out by the end of January 2020 when HK started to have COVID-19 cases imported from China.
HK's District Councils are currently the ONLY universal and equal suffrage elections held in HK : In 24 November 2019 District Council elections HK people elected majority pro-democratic District Councillors. With 85% of seats (388/452) and 17/18 Districts controlled by pro-democratic District Councillors the clear winners were the pro-democrat majority of HK people which includes protesters and their 5 demands.
CCP, after seriously failing and losing 'face' in the 2019 HK District Council universal and equal suffrage elections, instead of starting a dialog with HK people chose to use its dead-end 'nuclear' option. CCP's 1 July 2020 'national security law' has now effectively nuked everyone and everything, including itself!
The CCP and HK government are now busy consolidating their power within China's and HK's feudal Chinese plutocracy and congratulating themselves - oblivious to the inevitable fallout for them from the encroaching inter-dependency of the paradigm shift.
Live and let live! Live your life and let others live their lives!
Governments must abide by the rule OF law : To eradicate SARS-CoV-2 by herd immunity 70%+ of the world's population must be vaccinated to an international standard vaccination program
Highly respected Medical Journal 'The Lancet', 21 March 2020 'How will country-based mitigation measures influence the course of the COVID-19 epidemic?' :
"Governments will not be able to minimise both deaths from coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) and the economic impact of viral spread. Keeping mortality as low as possible will be the highest priority for individuals; hence governments must put in place measures to ameliorate the inevitable economic downturn."
All countries and territories who have signed the UN treaty 'International Health Regulations' (2005) (IHR) must abide by this treaty : China has never abided by any treaty and to date the world knows nothing about the source, spread, data, etc from the Wuhan virus SARS-CoV-2! Because W.H.O. has declared a global pandemic hence the legal basis for all countries actions must include IHR and all UN treaties and obligations.
With the global pandemic I am only as safe as you are - it is all about us - its not just about me! Until we live inter-dependently humanity will remain unsafe on Earth.
All we need is love!

[Update 15 May 2021] Despite having excess vaccines available the HK government is NOT offering vaccinations to asylum seekers in HK nor offereing BioNTech vaccine to children aged 12-15 years old. This is a violation of these peoples right to life.
CCP please answer the following UN letters sent to you:
