ROTHERHAM, England (LifeSiteNews) – A woman in England is seeking compensation after becoming paralyzed following reception of AstraZeneca’s COVID-19 jab. 

Kerry Hurt, a 49-year-old mother from Rotherham, suffered a blot clot on her brain one week after receiving her first dose of AstraZeneca’s abortion-tainted COVID shot in April. 

A BBC television report on the incident stated that such vaccine injuries are “rare;” however, there have been millions of injuries and thousands of deaths reported to such official watchdogs as VigiAccess, the VAERS database and, in Britain, the Yellow Card scheme, following inoculations with the novel COVID injections.

In a print BBC report, Hurt explained experiencing headaches within the first week of receiving the jab, at which point the blood clot was discovered by staff at Hallamshire Hospital in Sheffield. Doctors proceeded to perform life-saving surgery on Hurt, removing part of her skull to treat the affected area of her brain. 

Following the surgery, Hurt suffered a devastating stroke, leaving her paralyzed on her left side. After another week, fluid built up around her brain, which required a second round of life-saving surgery to insert a drain in her skull. Hurt spent three weeks in an intensive care unit. 

Hurt’s husband Patrick told the BBC that his wife’s injuries have “turned life upside down” and that she now requires expensive private physiotherapy, for which the family have had to fund-raise. 

 “Thirty seconds changed someone’s life. It’s crucified us. Ruined us,” he said. 

Kerry said she has “had to learn how to talk again, had to learn how to eat again, and I’m currently learning how to walk again.” 

“It’s devastated my life. I can’t even get myself to the toilet anymore.” 

Following governmental advice and wanting to go on holiday to Turkey, the Hurts said they received the jab “for the right reasons,” adding that they are not “anti-vaccine.” Indeed, despite her severe injuries, Kerry continues to believe that taking the shots should be encouraged.

Freedom-loving Australians are sending out an urgent call for help, a veritable SOS.

Over the past year and a half, Australia's democracy has been replaced by a type of medical fascism which has grasped control of power by using police state tactics.

In that time, freedoms have been curtailed or suppressed altogether and human rights have been abused, often with the use of the police force.

Please WATCH this video from our friends at Reignite Democracy Australia to better understand how BAD it is right now in Australia.

And, the situation just continues to deteriorate, so much so that our friends Down Under are now asking for outside help.

We simply must come to their aid! But, what can we do?

Please consider participating in the following two action items:

1) SAVE THE DATE and ATTEND a Pro-Freedom Rally on DEC. 4th (12pm, local time) at the Australian Embassy in Washington, DC, (address below), or at an Australian consulate office in one of the cities listed below

2) Please SIGN and SHARE this petition, directed to the Australian Ambassador to the United States, H.E. Arthur Sinodinos, asking him to:

  • End the lockdowns in Australia
  • End police brutality in Australia
  • End mandatory vaccinations in Australia
  • Restore the freedoms of speech, assembly and travel in Australia

Remember, after signing, please make a note of this important date and time (and address, below): Saturday, December 4th, 2021, 12pm.

And, please commit to peaceful protest in support of Australian freedom at one of the locations below on that date!

Our friends Down Under are reaching their limits. So, we must now join them in their struggle to retain their freedoms and human rights against police brutality and medical dictatorship.

Thank you for taking part in this important campaign.

However, after doctors agreed that Kerry’s injuries are likely linked to the AstraZeneca jab, she sought compensation through the Vaccine Damage Payment Scheme (VDPS). According to Kerry, claiming through the scheme has not been easy since the process is choked by “red tape.” 

“I did it when the government asked me to do it to protect each other and myself, but now I feel like I’m getting nothing back from the government [saying] ‘we acknowledge you did what we asked, but unfortunately for you it’s gone wrong,’” she added. 

Patrick told Yorkshire Live that those who have suffered after taking the government-backed drug “should be given the support they need, as after all we were only doing what we were asked for the benefit of all.” 

“The government are keeping a lot about the side effects under wraps and that’s what we’re annoyed about,” he continued.  

“I do think it was rushed through. We didn’t know about blood clots until it came out later, but they have not said what they will do for people affected by them.” 

The VDPS was taken over by the National Health Service (NHS) from the government on November 1. An NHS spokesman told the BBC that, owing to investigations into the relationship between the COVID shots and reported adverse events, “it will take longer before it can be determined if an individual’s claim meets the first legal test of causation.”
