Thousands of Federal Workers to March Against Biden’s Vaccine Mandate
January 14, 2022 | District of Columbia
Thousands of federal employees will peacefully march in protest of President Biden’s vaccine mandate, Defeat The Mandates DC organizers announced in a press release Thursday.
Over 6,000 members of Feds For Medical Freedom, a national grassroots coalition consisting of federal workers, announced that they would join firefighters, first responders, medical professionals and more in the March to Defeat the Mandates in Washington, D.C., on Jan. 23, the press release said.
Feds For Medical Freedom was formed in response to vaccine mandates and other restrictions imposed on federal employees, according to the organization’s website. The group believes “the government should not fire workers because of their health conditions or medically-informed health care decisions.”
“Now is not the time to abandon well-established laws regarding workplace discrimination, informed consent to use unlicensed vaccines, and individualized assessments by employers,” Feds For Medical Freedom’s website says. “Members of the Federal community work every day to ensure the nation’s laws are applied fairly to all citizens.”
“Now, they are fighting the government to ensure the law is applied fairly to all federal workers,” the site continues.
March organizers said that those participating do not oppose vaccines, according to the press release. The purpose, instead, is to stand up against mandatory vaccinations for U.S. citizens, the press release said…. (Excerpts from the Virginia Star)
