(LifeSiteNews) – YouTube apparently changed its COVID-19 “misinformation” policies earlier this year to allow users to question the effectiveness of masks against the disease. 

In a recent tweet, conservative commentator Tim Poole posted two screenshots from the online Wayback Machine showing two images of YouTube’s COVID “misinformation” policy, one taken on April 13 of this year, the next from May 31.  

The screenshot from April states that “Claims that masks do not play a role in preventing the contraction or transmission of COVID-19,” and claims that the masks cause physical and psychological harm, will cause a post to be taken down, and a channel that breaks the platforms policy thrice in a 90 day period will be permanently banned.

The platform’s “misinformation” policy for May does not mention policies with regard to masks and their effectiveness and shows the two bullet points relating to masks have been removed. There is still no mention of masks in the policy at the time of writing.

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!

Poole, commenting on the apparent change, tweeted that “Youtube updated its policies to no longer ban claims that masks do not play a role in preventing spread of COVID.” “Essentially, you are now allowed to claim masks don’t work,” Poole concluded. 

Reacting to the screenshots, Dr. Jay Bhattacharya, Professor at Stanford School of Medicine, tweeted “In March 2021, @YouTube banned a video of me telling @GovRonDeSantis that there was no high quality evidence that force masking children protects anyone from covid. Shame on YouTube for censoring to support CDC propaganda. The Science(tm) changed, but the science didn’t.” 

Brandon Tatum, a YouTuber and former police officer, reacted by tweeting “Smh. I got a strike over this.” 

YouTube has a history of banning users and videos for even questioning the effectiveness of masks and the mainstream COVID narrative and highlighting the damage caused by masks. 

In January, YouTube suspended and demonetized the account of conservative commentator Dan Bongino after he said masks were not effective at stopping the spread of COVID. Bongino subsequently moved to Rumble, a less censorious video platfom.  

Last August, YouTube suspended the account of Senator Rand Paul for posting a video of an interview he did in which he questioned the effectiveness of masks to stop the spread of COVID-19. Paul subsequently stated that he would stop posting on YouTube, calling it the end of a “toxic relationship.” 

In February 2021, YouTube also banned LifeSiteNews from the platform for allegedly violating its COVID “misinformation” policies.  

Multiple studies have shown that masks are ineffective at stopping the spread of COVID-19, and cause harm if worn for prolonged periods of time, as LifeSite previously reported. Further, studies have shown that prolonged use of masks can cause developmental and psychological harm in children, including delayed language development in babies.
