Court Challenge to No Jab No Pay to proceed!

The Time Has Finally Come!
The AVN – with your help – will overturn No Jab, No Pay Legislation and return
Freedom of Health Choice to Australia.

 

The AVN Committee is very pleased to inform you that our barrister has now given us the go-ahead to ask our membership and the general public for their voluntary sponsorship of the court challenge to No Jab, No Pay legislation.

 

As I’m sure you can imagine, since this is such a big step to take – proceeding with legal action against federal legislation in the High Court of Australia – our barrister wanted to make absolutely certain that his advice was accurate and well thought-out before telling us it was OK to call for sponsorship.

 

We have just received a preliminary oral opinion from him, stating that he has identified at least one avenue to challenge the constitutional validity of the No Jab, No Pay legislation. He is of the opinion that this avenue has reasonable prospects of surviving an application for strikeout or summary dismissal.

 

In layman’s terms, this means that the High Court will be likely to agree to hear the case.
This is fabulous news, as I’m sure you can imagine.

 

As a result, we are now issuing a call for sponsorship.
We are now asking if you could please make a donation – as much as you can afford, any amount would be appreciated – to help support this no-doubt very costly effort to regain the right to free health choice in Australia.

 

We will be holding all voluntary sponsorships for the No Jab, No Pay (NJNP) court case separately until our legal team requires us to transfer funds to their trust accounts. These funds will be dedicated to paying for any and all costs necessary to oppose this legislation.  Under the guidance of our barrister, we intend to finalise the appointment of a legal firm and Queen’s Counsel in the near future.

 

Since we must keep these funds separate from other AVN operating funds, we ask that your sponsorships be directed as follows (this is very important as any funds not submitted in the following ways will be assumed to be supporting the AVN – not the court case):

 

Via the internet
A new page has been set up in our shop to allow you to make good on your pledges by either PayPal or credit card. Click this link to go directly to that page and fill in the amount you will be giving to this appeal.

 

By internet banking / direct deposit
Please transfer funds into the following account where they will be kept in trust for the court case.
Westpac Bank
Account name – AVN Community Solutions
BSB 032591
Account number 188223

 

This is VERY IMPORTANT! Please be sure to leave your name (first initial and last name is fine if you are limited in the number of characters) as identification on your deposit / transfer and be sure to leave the letters NJNP as well as that will direct the funds to the court case. A follow-up email sent to to avnevm@gmail.com with your contact details confirming the amount transferred would also be appreciated.

 

Send a cheque or money order made out to AVN to the following address:
AVN
PO Box 88
BANGALOW NSW 2479

 

Write NJNP in the memo field on the cheque or on the back and be sure your contact details are enclosed.

 

Telephone payment:
Lastly – if you would like to make payment over the phone using a credit card, that can be arranged but is not the preferred method since it is very time consuming for us. Call Meryl on 0414 872 032 and she will be happy to take down your credit card details and to issue you with a receipt once payment has been made.

 

How else can you support this court case?

 

We are sure you all know that the AVN is a small, not-for-profit, volunteer-run association. We have battled against nearly inconceivable attacks from the government and those in the community who support censorship and compulsion regarding vaccination and, in spite of all these threats to our community, we have stayed the course and will continue to do so whilst ever we can.

 

There are many things that you can do to assist us in a non-monetary manner and if you are able to help in any of these ways, please do contact avnenquiries@gmail.com
and we will get back to you.

 

1-    Do you have 2-3 hours a week you can spare to help with things such as letter writing, phone calls, helping people with lobbying,
etc?
2-    Are you a legal person – either a paralegal, solicitor, barrister or QC? We are not asking for free assistance from legal professionals (though if you would like to provide pro-
bono assistance, we will not say no!) but we need to get a legal team together and would appreciate any help you can offer or any direction regarding likely constitutional experts.
3-    Are you a marketing expert? We will need help with promoting our efforts in the media so help with press releases and press conferences as well as other methods of advertising and promotions would be very much appreciated.
4-    Are you someone with a good knowledge of how the government works? If so, we really do need your help! Any assistance with lobbying or other legal/governmental issue would be wonderful!

 

Thank you in advance for fulfilling your pledge promptly. We will, of course, keep you up to date as things progress.

 

Yours in support of health freedom and choice,
The AVN National Committee
