Perhaps, you have had the personal experience of someone you trusted, a wife, close friend, a son, doctor, or business partner, doing ‘something’ that harmed you, even deeply, knowing what they were doing. I have, more than once. The feeling is betrayal.

If you can, I ask you to reincarnate that feeling of personal trust betrayed, or imagine what it must feel like, and magnify it, apply it to 7.9 billion people, each one just like yourself, just like your wife, husband, and precious son or daughter.

As a documentary filmmaker, that is how I felt watching Planet Lockdown. While I knew all the talking points voiced by the most educated and qualified experts on earth, the synergy of the seamless juxtapositions, something I have done myself on many similar projects, made me weep.

It wasn’t the talking points that hurt so much, it was the human suffering this betrayal inflicted and continues to inflict on every person on earth. The global sorrow shakes me now as I pin this brief invitation.

Many of you, like me, know the magnitude of the multiple and expertly crafted and executed deceptions; clever relabeling, intentionally misleading accounting, fraudulent tests, alleged vaccines that inflict more harm than good, falsely claiming that healthy people are sick and dangerous, all of us, the forced isolation, forced business closures, canceled performances, the simple preventable treatments intentionally withheld from so many, declaring an emergency when there was no emergency, pounding fear-porn propaganda and equally pervasive censorship, all coordinated academically and politically, with all of us ‘the target,’ and for so long.

Many of you, like me, have hit the wall our family and close friends have built upon these deceptions. As Mark Twain reminds us ― “It’s easier to fool people than to convince them that they have been fooled.” A fact not missed and exploited by those who are betraying.

I know you have had enough, more than you can stand, and have little interest in revisiting the past two years. I know. I feel the same way. But just do it. Take the time. Weep along with me and so many others remembering what had been done. And never let this happen again. And they will try. They are doing it now.

With this as background, you will understand and appreciate Reiner Fuellmich’s opening to the Court of Public Opinion’s grand jury, which is publishing the evidence needed for lawsuits alleging crimes against humanity.

About the film: Prior to 2020, if you heard the term “lockdown” you might think of something that happens in a prison — not in a free society. This mechanism of control has since become commonplace — not among prisoners but among the free — with repercussions that are only beginning to be understood. Michael Yeadon, Ph.D., a former vice-president and chief scientific adviser of the drug company Pfizer explained, people have historically quarantined the sick, but quarantining healthy people, as has occurred for the past two years, has no scientific backing or historic precedence.2

“Given this virus represents, at most, a slightly bigger risk to the old and ill than seasonal influenza, and a less risk, a smaller risk, to almost everyone else who’s younger and fit,” Yeadon says, “it was never necessary for us to have done anything. We didn’t need to do anything — lockdowns, masks, testing, vaccines even.”

No other film project is addressing the situation from an international perspective, which is required to have a full understanding of what is happening. This is a global operation. We work with colleagues in UK, EU, and Africa to capture the situation. We are doing this project as a public service and it isn’t free to produce. To date, it has been driven by people contributing their time unpaid, myself especially, so donations help cover these out-of-pocket expenses.
