“A controversial anti-vaccination documentary has been withdrawn from the Castlemaine Local and International Film Festival.
The festival committee says it faced a firestorm of abuse after announcing Vaxxed would be included in the October event, and last night issued a statement because some members felt “personally and professionally threatened’’.
“This is unacceptable,’’ the statement read. “It is with the utmost regret therefore that CLIFF is compelled, for clear reasons of personal and public safety, to withdraw the screening from the CLIFF 2016 programme,” the statement said.
Vaxxed explores allegations of a cover-up by the US Centre for Disease Control and a link between the Measles, Mumps and Rubella vaccine and autism.”

Pedler’s article describes the by now familiar dynamics of intimidation, threats, and festival organizers having to choose between their safety and the safety of their families, and showing a sought after “controversial” documentary, which to date has not had its contents refuted by the film’s central subject: CDC Whistleblower Dr. William Thompson.

  1. Since Pharma owns legislators, the only way to shift the balance of power is to create mass awareness of the vaccine issue. This can be done by a first rate advertising agency. Remember the anti-smoking ads in the U.S. showing body bags piling up in front of a tobacco company headquarters? No one today believes Tobacco industry lies. We have to use the same professional Madison Avenue tactics that worked back then. Homegrown protests and signing petitions will not work anymore.

    Today’s so-called ‘science’ has been hijacked by special interest groups who will stop at nothing to protect their coffers and their privileged status. They will lie, intimidate, threaten, and even murder to prevent people from gaining information that may undermine their control of society. So when you her that ‘scientists say this’ or that ‘science is settled on that’ remember that those are snake oil salesmen who use the word ‘science’ to bamboozle the masses and that under the cloak of their ‘science’ hides profit and power motive. The sooner WE THE PEOPLE realize it, the better.

  3. Withdrawing the film was a terrible precedent. The critics of VAXXED just learned how to stop people from seeing the film. They stopped Dr. Sherri Tenpenny from doing her lecture series with similar tactics.

    So proud of and impressed by fact that despite decades of personal and professional attacks, persecution and online harassment, research journalist/writer Celia Farber has never cowered to intimidation and continues to this day to speak and share Truth.
    Makings of a true Hero.

    Wish supposed “independent” film festivals showed as much Courage and Integrity.

  5. David Crowe says:

    It would be really nice if film festival organizers would stand up to this bullying. Online abuse is just words. It’s sad that people who claim to have science on their side use tactics of intimidation to avoid a discussion breaking out.

      Indeed Mr Crowe
      The closed-minded, willfully blind ignorance of those preaching “science” while refusing to consider or even acknowledge scientific fact displaying failure of or even simply dissent to their deeply held dogmatic faith in theoretical proposal demonstrates cowardice akin to primitive culture and undeveloped minds.

      Try to get one of the supposed “freethinkers” at the falsely named “center for inquiry” to explain why the organization clings fervently to accepted belief in the unproven HIV theory despite failure of every prerequisite, prediction, threat and promise made with and since 1984 proposal.

      Fear of questioning their own belief, arrogance and understanding has become their god.
