As the World Health Organization’s (WHO) largest donor, partnered with the wealth and power to censor international media coverage, is it any surprise that tech billionaire Bill Gates has succeeded in using poverty-stricken African villagers as guinea pigs for his foundation’s vaccine research and development programs?
In an article published in 2016 by U.S. political magazine CounterPunch, Professor Patrick Bond, a political economist who’d been in Nelson Mandela’s government, described the Gates Foundation’s unseemly business philanthropic practices and agenda, as “ruthless and immoral.” Professor Bond is also on record saying,
“Gates’ influence is so pervasive that many actors in international development, which would otherwise critique the policy and practice of the foundation, are unable to speak out independently -as a result of its funding and patronage,” Bond warned.
The fact remains, Gates managed to get away with massively administering a liquid oral Polio vaccine to populations of Africans – despite the near absence of any cases of “wild Polio.” In 2016, the Foundation launched a $4 billion ten year African campaign to fight Polio using their liquid oral vaccine – with disastrous consequences.
Not only was the vaccine responsible for new, more deadly emergences of the virus, the emerging mutations created significantly more cases of Polio paralysis than the deceptively named “wild Polio” strain.
Mark Pallansch, a virologist at the U.S. Center for Disease Control and Prevention, commented, “We have now created more emergences of the virus than we have stopped.”
Even the World Health Organization knows this, with the AP reporting in late 2019 that, “More polio cases now caused by vaccine than by wild virus.” And yet the carnage continues.
It seems rather questionable that the Gates foundation focused on a disease that had all but vanished, while many of the diseases that are prevalent in claiming the lives of African children in their first five years of growth and development, are caused by easily solvable factors – such as improper sanitation and hygiene, unsafe drinking water and insufficient food.
Mr Gates’ response seemed contrived, “Polio is a terrible disease.”
According to the U.S. based New Health Advisor organization, poor quality water is responsible for transmitting diseases such as: Cholera; Dysentery; Diarrhea, Malaria; Hepatitis A; Polio; Typhoid Fever; and Bilharzia – as well as aggravating the harms of HIV/AIDS.
Aside from Pneumonia, Diarrhea and Malaria being the major cause of mortalities in African children under the age of five, Africa has the highest infant mortality rate in the world due to complications arising from unavailable healthcare facilities, and inadequate infrastructure.
That raises further questions concerning the Gates Foundation’s focus on a Polio vaccine, when their goal is apparently to “save children’s lives in the developing world, and to help more African children lead healthy lives”.
Some would argue that the Foundation committed roughly $200 million to the international Toilet Project. At this point, it should be mentioned that one of Bill Gates’ famous recorded sayings is, “If I was down to my last Dollar, I would spend it on PR.”
The result is that many believe his PR people cooked up the Foundation to cover over his shredded reputation during Microsoft’s antitrust trial – and to justify his enormous wealth and power.
That being said, rather than being about destitute children, the International Toilet Project is perceived by many as having an agenda to save the planet, and reduce the $200 billion that is lost each year on healthcare costs and decreased income and productivity – due to the 2.5 million diarrhea related deaths each year in underdeveloped countries.
In October 2017, Spears WMS – a bimonthly British magazine for high-net-worth individuals – gave an overview of Bill Gates’ twelve biggest philanthropic donations of all time.
The second highest recorded donation was made to GAVI Alliance – a Swiss organization engaged in developing vaccines and administering them to children in underdeveloped countries – in the amount of $957 million. The GAVI organization features several times as a benefactor on this list of sizeable contributions from Bill and Melinda Gates.
The third highest donation was granted to Rotary International in the sum of $755 million to support its activities under the Polio Plus Program. It is therefore unsurprising to discover a donation of $682 million to WHO for its Global Polio Eradication Initiative (GPEI), or $299 million to UNICEF, who utilized this fund to support Polio eradication.
Given the Gates-funded and induced Polio outbreak in Africa, together with the Foundation’s perceived obsession with the Polio vaccine, it was foreseeable that opinion pieces would circulate in various African news platforms concerning Gates’ involvement in the latest Congolese Ebola Outbreak.
Many locals believe that Gates has been “experimenting” on rural Congolese folk, infecting them with a rare strain of the Ebola virus – as research into the development of “Ebola as a bioweapon.” Suspicions were fueled by the fact that the deadly strain occurred in a remote corner of this troubled African nation – which had previously been uninfected.
This sentiment about Bill Gates using Africans as lab rats recently raged outside the University of Witwatersrand in Johannesburg on July 03, 2020. The University was selected by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation’s GAVI Alliance, to schedule COVID-19 vaccine test trials.
Protestors lined the street outside the University carrying signs that read “Gates we’re not your lab rats”; “Africa is not your playground”; “We don’t want the gates of hell here”; “We’re not guinea pigs”; “If you want to test, test in the areas which they call epicenters of the world, NOT the epicenter of South Africa.”
