Update Apr. 4, 2021: We are following some some updates that claim Finland still intends to propose new measures and go into lockdown. We will likely publish another update when more is known.
ou can see it all over social media if you know where to look, but one common theme throughout this pandemic has been the mass protesting all over the the world in every single country that is imposing covid restrictions on their citizens. It’s something that mainstream media continues to avoid, but one thing is for certain, many people disagree with the measures being taken to combat the virus.
That being said, many people also agree. This is fine, it’s healthy to disagree but what’s not healthy is censoring information, data, published peer-reviewed science, and doctors and scientists who disagree with government measures while only giving a voice to those who agree or are affiliated with government.
In many cases, opposing perspectives have not only been largely unacknowledged, but also completely ridiculed and in some cases labelled as “conspiracy theories.” Why does mainstream culture continue to fail to have discussions and conversations about controversial topics?
What Happened: A Belgian court recently ruled that the current COVID-19 measures being deployed don’t have a sound legal basis. The Belgian State has 30 days to lift restrictions or face fines. After this, the Finnish government withdrew its proposal to impose lockdown measures on their citizens by confining them to their homes unless they need to access essential services. Prime Minister Sanna Marin (pictured above) shared the news on Wednesday after a statement from a constitutional law committee deemed the proposal for lockdown vague and not in compliance with the constitution.
