High Court win against vaccine mandates just the start – time to ‘double down’

This week’s High Court decision that saw police and defence force workers win their legal challenge against vaccine mandates is a turning point that will go down in history. The implications of this victory could be enormous in the weeks and months to come.

Quick Recap

Back in September of 2021 we put a call out to the VFF community for support to help defend members of the NZDF against the “no jab, no job” mandates in court. In just 24 hours, without hesitation, many hundreds of you stepped forward with financial help to make it happen.

Now, 6 months on, we have been vindicated.

After being unsuccessful at the first hearing, the NZDF members regrouped and joined forces with members of the NZ Police to return to the High Court and challenge the mandates again with a substantive hearing. And this time they were successful. You can read the full judgment here.

In Summary

The High Court Judge ruled that for Members of the NZDF and NZP vaccine Mandates are “unlawful”. They have a right to refuse the vaccine on religious grounds and have a right to refuse medical treatment. Period.

How significant is this?

While the High Court ruling was only made for the NZDF and NZP which have their own sets of employment rules, it should be noted that significant learning has been made in the process of this case that will be advantageous for fighting future cases.

Plus, it also places a stake in the ground for others to point to and say: “If it’s okay for them, why not me?”. And this is tremendously significant, in the battle for the hearts and minds of our fellow Kiwis.

What next?

The NZDF and police fight was your fight, and so their victory is your victory. This is a time to feel good and be encouraged to push on.

With the pressure now coming down on the government on all fronts the cracks are showing. Which is a reminder not to get complacent, but to push harder to seize victory.

The High Court ruling is a pivotal win, but we cannot rest until the mandates are gone and the Covid Response Health Act has been revoked. And there is still much work to do.
