Ilana Rachel Daniel, Health advisor, health and safety researcher, activist, and writer,
joined forces with the co-founders of the Rappeh party because this movement is one that, finally, raises the bar.
It leaves behind the arguments of right and left,
pro and anti, even religious designations,
and asks of us: what are the most basic common denominators we share?
Like many of you this past year she have witnessed the deliberate destruction
of the values that we live by
and the systems in place to uphold them in the name of
She have sat up nights grappling with the inconsistencies in the explanations our government has offered for their policies.
“After a full year, billions upon billions of dollars,
and the most brilliant scientific minds at the task,
I ask: how can deadly lockdowns and a risky, experimental, novel technology
be our only options?
The cure has become far worse than the disease.
I maintain that the right to self determination and bodily autonomy are not privileges
offered by government,
but are inalienable rights inherent to every individual with whom
we share the planet.
Informed consent is a basic component of a healthy and functioning society.
The freedoms of speech, choice, and ability to earn an honest wage and raise a family
accordingly are rights upon which the government may not intrude.
Our governments will not be returning us our freedoms.
On the contrary, they take action to further eradicate them.
I am not a politician.
I am part of this movement because this country is more than my home
and our fellow citizens are more than neighbors.
This is our land and it is our refuge.
The nations are watching now as they have always done.
I wish to restore our ability to shine light to them.
This is our movement, this is our witness, this is our future.
It changes for the better the moment we together take the responsibility back.”
