Pharmaceutical giant Pfizer was secretly funding pressure groups that pushed governments to introduce draconian vaccine mandates and passports, according to a bombshell new report.
The report, from investigative journalist Lee Fang, reveals that Pfizer silently funded several groups advocating for vaccine mandates and passports.
Pfizer’s COVID-19 shot is one of the most widely used vaccines in the world.
In August 2021, the president of the Chicago Urban League, Karen Freeman-Wilson, in an interview on TV, argued that vaccine mandates would not disproportionately harm the black community.
“The health and safety factor here far outweighs the concern about shutting people out or creating a barrier,” Freeman-Wilson said at the time.
Earlier that year, the Chicago Urban League had received $100,000 from Pfizer.
The money was supposedly for a project to advance the promotion of “vaccine safety and effectiveness.”
Part of this “promotion” involved lobbying governments to introduce tyrannical vaccine mandates.
The organization did not list Pfizer as a donor or partner on its website.
Freeman-Wilson did not mention the funding during the interview, either.
The Chicago Urban League grant is one of many Pfizer-awarded groups to promote and encourage vaccine mandates.
The pharmaceutical giant awarded grants to public health organizations, civil rights groups, as well as consumer, medical, and doctors’ groups.
Most of these groups did not disclose the funding from Pfizer.
The lack of transparency regarding the grants allowed Pfizer to secretly fund efforts to force the public into using their products.
In August 2021, the corporate watchdog group the National Consumers League announced support for “government and employer mandates” requiring Covid vaccination.
The announcement came at around the same time the organization received a $75,000 grant from Pfizer for “vaccine policy efforts.”
Houston-based public health organization the Immunization Partnership publicly lobbied against bills introduced in Texas aimed at banning vaccine passports and vaccine mandates.
The organization did not disclose that Pfizer gave it $35,000 earlier that year for “legislative advocacy.”
