NEW YORK CITY (LifeSiteNews) — New York City parents have expressed frustration that Mayor Eric Adams has failed to end mask mandate for toddlers.
This week, New York mother Ana Jelenkovic openly condemned Adams for promising to end mask mandates for young children, but never following through.
“I find it all very dystopian and depressing that as a society and as a city we have come to just accept this policy,” Jelenkovic told the New York Post. Jelenkovic’s four-year-old now requires private speech therapy because of having to wear a mask.
Currently, children ages 2-5 must wear masks indoors in preschools, daycares, and other city-run programs. During past two months, Adams has often said that he wants to change this “within a week or so” while failing to offer a timetable for action.
“I want to remove masks and see our babies’ faces as quickly as possible. We are prepared, not panicked, as we move into the next phase of the pandemic,” the mayor said last Wednesday.
“My team of health experts and I continue to evaluate the data, day after day, and we will continue to communicate with New Yorkers with additional updates.”
Danielle Pollack, a mother of a three-year-old girl, said, “It makes me question whether New York City is the right place to raise my family.”
“As a New York resident, I voted for Adams because his whole platform was that he would get things back to normal,” she added. “It’s just been really frustrating, because it seems like Mayor Adams is doing nothing about it, [and] won’t even give a timeline.”
The WHO Pandemic Treaty looks set to be one of the biggest power-grabs in living memory, with unelected globalists seeking the power to declare pandemics, and then control your country's response.
But it's not too late to do something about it.
SIGN and SHARE this special petition telling Director General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus that the WHO will never usurp your nation's sovereignty.
The past two years have been rife with infringements on personal liberties and civil rights by national governments, but now the World Health Organization is seeking to appropriate those same abusive powers to itself at a global level.
194 member states representing 99% of the world's population are expected to sign pandemic treaties with the WHO that would allow Tedros, or any future Director General, to dictate exactly how your nation would respond to a new disease outbreak which they consider a pandemic.
This attack on national sovereignty will come as no surprise to those who for years have listened to elites like Klaus Schwab and Bill Gates discussing their vision for the centralization of power into globalist organizations like the World Economic Forum (WEF), the WHO and the rest of the United Nations.
SIGN this petition against the WHO's Pandemic Treaty, before it's too late.
Ludicrously, 20 world leaders calling for the treaty, including Tedros, Boris Johnson and Emmanuel Macron, compared the post-Covid world to the post-WWII period, saying similar co-operation is now needed to "dispel the temptations of isolationism and nationalism, and to address the challenges that could only be achieved together in the spirit of solidarity and co-operation - namely peace, prosperity, health and security."
Australian PM Scott Morrison is the latest leader to express support for a “pandemic treaty”.
The stated intention of the WHO is to “kickstart a global process to draft and negotiate a convention, agreement or other international instrument under the Constitution of the World Health Organization to strengthen pandemic prevention, preparedness and response.”
The wheels are already in motion, with the Biden administration officially proposing the initial steps towards handing global pandemic control to the WHO.
Biden's representatives have submitted amendments to the WHO's International Health Regulations (IHR), which would give the Director General the right to declare health emergencies in any nation, even when disputed by the country in question.
These amendments, which would be legally binding under international law, will be voted on by the World Health Assembly (the governing body of the WHO) at a special convention running from May 22-28 and set the stage for a fully-fledged pandemic treaty to be passed.
SIGN and SHARE the petition telling the WHO that you won't accept any pandemic treaty
The ball has been rolling since the last World Health Assembly meeting in December, where the United States launched negotiations "on a new international health instrument on pandemic prevention, preparedness, and response," a U.S. statement read.
"This momentous step represents our collective responsibility to work together to advance health security and to make the global health system stronger and more responsive.
"We look forward to broad and deep negotiations using a whole-of-society and whole-of-government approach that will strengthen the international legal framework for public health/pandemic prevention, preparedness, and response and enable us to address issues of equity, accountability, and multisectoral collaboration evident in the COVID-19 pandemic.
"We know it will take all of us working together across governments, private sector, philanthropy, academia, and civil society to make rapid progress towards a long-term solution for these complex problems," the U.S. statement added.
SIGN the petition today to show the WHO that you won't accept this attack on national sovereignty.
These are precarious times in which freedom and self-determination must be defended from those who would ride rough-shod over your civil rights.
We do not want to go back to global lockdowns, vaccine mandates and propoganda.
Sign the petition - speak up now!

In March, Adams promised parents the mandate would be lifted on April 4 but later cited a brief spike in Covid-19 cases to justify keeping the masks in place.
The mayor claims the main reason for mandating masks for children so young is that the experimental COVID-19 vaccine in is currently not available for children under five.
On April 1, a Staten Island judge attempted to free NYC toddlers of masks, but Adams countered this on the same day, announcing that City Hall would seek an appeal and request a stay to keep the infants masked.
Many parents are opposed to masking their little ones. A POLITICO-Harvard survey shows over 40% of parents hold that wearing a mask harms their child’s educational experience. Additionally, 46% think masks hurt their child’s social learning and interactions while 39% state masks harmed their child’s mental and emotional health.
Masks have been proven to be harmful for young children, in addition to adults. A German consumer organization discovered that “all FFP2 mask models that were tested were unsuitable for children and offered too much breathing resistance and not enough breathing comfort.”
A number of experts and studies in other countries had already suggested that wearing a mask is not only inefficient at slowing the spread of COVID-19 but could also have harmful effect on people’s physical and mental health. This is particularly true of children.
