Latvia’s regime under Krisjanis Karins has been one of those seeking to force vaccinations on the people of the Baltic country and there had been a bill planned to force Latvians in many professions to be vaccinated in order to work as well as giving employees full right to fire the unvaccinated.
Leading this push to try to implement these vaccine mandates in addition to Prime Minister Krisjanis Karins was also the power hungry liberal Health Minister Daniels Pavluts but also the New Conservative Party, another party in the coalition government.
After these plans began to be drafted, Latvia saw its biggest protests since the financial crisis in 2009, where the government imposed brutal austerity.
A couple of weeks ago the peak of these protests happened and it left the ruling class scrambling to decide what to do. As I covered
Around 10,000 people in Riga, the capital of Latvia gathered on Wednesday to protest forced vaccinations and to bring about a Soviet style internal vaccine passport. It should be noted even on Wednesday, there has been protests against the medical tyranny in towns such as Gulbene, Talsi, Limbazi as well as in cities such as Daugavpils and Rezenke.
It was admitted by Ainars Latovskis that the head of the ruling New Unity parliamentary faction, that the Defense, Interior and Corruption Prevention Committee in Parliament is not considering the law at this time as it has been delayed. This came after a conversation with the unpopular President Egils Levits, who wishes to do whatever is needed to fix his approval ratings that are in the toilet.
Levits met with the heads of the Parliamentary factions and had proposed nine principles that should be followed to improve governance during the pandemic and that includes Covid-19 vaccinations being voluntary.
It should be noted, that while this is a big victory, they will try to regroup and implement these mandates at a time when they think it is convenient. That is why it is absolutely critical all of the heroes in Latvia fighting this, whether it is Aldis Gobzems, Julija Stepanenko, Ramona Petravica, and Kaspars Girgens in Parliament, or Marina Kornatovska, Andrejs Pagors, Andrejs Mamikins, Daniels Abolins, and others outside of Parliament and popular on social media, that they keep the pressure on them. Due to their efforts they have put in every day in the fight for what is right on this issue, one should be confident that will happen.
This one struggle of the Latvian people, whether ethnic Latvians or Russians, made this possible, but as said before, one can’t be complacent.
