Police, Firefighters In LA Form Group To Resist Vaccine Mandates

Police and firefighters in Los Angeles have formed a resistance group
against COVID vaccine mandates for state workers in the city, stating
that they aim to “maintain human rights, constitutional rights, civil
rights, and civil liberties as sovereign natural free human beings,
and American citizens.”

As reported in the LA Times, two separate police and firefighters
groups have come together to oppose vaccine mandates.

‘Firefighters 4 Freedom’ issued a statement on its website noting “Our
goal is to stop the mandated vaccinations for all City employees as
well as the citizens of this great country. We want to bring education
and truth to the people without being censored.”

The statement further notes that the group believes in “the right to
work, freewill, personal choice, medical freedoms, and consent without
coercion, retaliation, threats, disciplinary action, or termination.”

    Firefighters 4 Freedom, a group of LA city firefighters and police
officers, plans to sue the city over the new requirement that city
employees be vaccinated.

It continues, “This is not a vaccine versus non-vaccine issue, this is
not a left verse right political issue. This is a human rights issue.”

    “We hope you stand with us, for we believe all members and
citizens have the freedom of choice and natural rights. Your body,
your choice. My body, my choice,” the statement concludes.

Meanwhile, LAPD officers have joined the movement under the banner
‘Roll Call 4 Freedom’.

LAPD Sgt. Veronica Saucedo stated that “We are supportive of
individual rights, personal choice and for managing our own health.”

The development comes in the wake of first responders in Oregon
bringing a lawsuit against the state and the governor for imposing
vaccine mandates.
