These reforms are vital for protecting the health and safety of all Australians while securing rights for health practitioners to function without undue interference, being a package of reforms that will implement safeguards preventing government and agency overreach, witnessed during the time of Covid.

Dr Pierre Kory
M.D., M.P.A. Pulmonary and Critical Care Specialist. President, Frontline COVID-19 Critical Care Alliance ( FLCCC Alliance)
Pierre Kory is the former Chief of the Critical Care Service and Medical Director of the Trauma and Life Support Center at the University of Wisconsin. He is considered one of the world pioneers in the use of ultrasound by physicians in the diagnosis and treatment of critically ill patients. He helped develop and run the first national courses in Critical Care Ultrasonography in the U.S., and served as a Director of these courses with the American College of Chest Physicians for several years. He is also the senior editor of the most popular textbook in the field titled “Point of Care Ultrasound,” now in its 2nd edition and that has been translated into 7 languages worldwide. He has led over 100 courses nationally and internationally, teaching physicians this now-standard skill in his specialty.
Dr. Kory was also one of the U.S. pioneers in the research, development, and teaching of performing therapeutic hypothermia to treat post-cardiac arrest patients. In 2005, his hospital was the first in New York City to begin regularly treating patients with therapeutic hypothermia. He then served as an expert panel member for New York City’s Project Hypothermia, a collaborative project between the Fire Department of New York and Emergency Medical Services. This project created cooling protocols within a network of 44 regional hospitals – along with a triage and transport system that directed patients to centers of excellence in hypothermia treatment – of which his hospital was one of the first.
Known as a Master Educator, Dr. Kory has won numerous departmental and divisional teaching awards in every hospital he has worked. He has delivered hundreds of courses and invited lectures throughout his career.
In collaboration with Dr. Paul Marik, Dr. Kory pioneered the research and treatment of septic shock patients with high doses of intravenous ascorbic acid. His work was the first to identify the critical relationship between the time of initiation of therapy and survival in septic shock patients – an aspect of the therapy that led to understanding all the failed randomized controlled trials that employed delayed therapy.
Dr. Kory has led ICU’s in multiple COVID-19 hotspots throughout the pandemic. Having led his old ICU in New York City during their initial surge in May for 5 straight weeks, he then travelled to other COVID-19 hotspots to run COVID ICU’s in Greenville, South Carolina and Milwaukee, WI during their surges. He has co-authored 5 influential papers on COVID-19, with the most impactful being a paper that was the first to support the diagnosis of early COVID-19 respiratory disease as an organizing pneumonia, thus explaining the critical response of the disease to corticosteroids.

Mr Peter Fam
Peter Fam is a human rights specialist and the Principal Lawyer at Ma’at’s Method, a human rights law firm in Sydney, Australia. Peter is a defender and advocate of universal law. His aim is to assist in restoring truth, justice and balance to our world.
Up until 2019, Peter worked in private practice representing survivors of historical abuse before moving to broader civil litigation work for a large defendant firm. From there, Peter was offered a role in the “Human Rights Specialist” team at LegalAid NSW, where he worked for two years. Then, it became clear that those places weren’t aligned completely with Peter’s values, nor would they accept his unwillingness to consent to an impingement on his bodily integrity.
Peter founded Ma’at’s Method so that he could focus his attention fully on issues which concern the inherent dignity every man and woman holds by virtue of their humanity.
Since its founding, Peter has been heavily involved in various court cases on the topics of the censorship of medical and other professionals, the right not to consent to unwanted medical procedures, privacy and whistle-blower law, and other human rights areas; particularly those enshrined in international law. He remains one of a handful of lawyers in Australia working directly in these areas. He also regularly travels around Australia to assist first nations communities with claims for overzealous policing, false imprisonment and discrimination at the hands of the State.
Mr Julian Gillespie
Julian Gillespie is a lawyer and former barrister, who wrote the legal opinion and prepared the brief for proceedings before Federal Court, seeking two outcomes - that the Secretary of Health perform his statutory duty and suspend or cancel the Covid-19 ‘vaccines’ - and secondly, that the Court rule the decision to extend the ‘vaccines’ to 5-11 year olds is invalid at law, as the Secretary of Health lacked the legal power to make the decision. These matters are still afoot despite a recent perverse decision being returned by the Full Court of the Federal Court.
Julian has also been assisting with many other cases particularly those involving Employer Mandates for Employees to be vaccinated, and assisting in Family Court matters where one parent seeks to resist another parent who wishes to have their child vaccinated with a Covid-19 injectable.
Julian researches extensively on all matters connected to Australia’s response to SARS-CoV-2, sharing publicly his findings concerning the legislative framework for how the Commonwealth and States and Territory governments centrally organised the response to SARS-CoV-2 from Canberra, drawing attention to the fact Australian governments collectively jettisoned years of scientific research amassed for correctly responding to a pandemic, to instead follow unscientific WHO recommendations which favoured big pharmaceutical interests.
His other ongoing research also includes the failings of AHPRA and National Boards and Health Professionals coerced and gagged by AHPRA, which investigations are now providing victims of Covid-19 ‘vaccines’ new avenues for legal redress for their injuries, and legal pathways for those families who lost loved ones to the Covid-19 injectables.

Prof Robyn Cosford was an integrative medical practitioner, naturopath and homeopath of over 35 years, with an Honours degree in Medicine and life membership of Australasian College of Nutritional and Environmental Medicine and Australasian Society of Lifestyle Medicine.

The influence of the gut microbiome and abnormalities have been a feature of ongoing research in conjunction with Bioscreen, which came out of the University of Newcastle research team.
Robyn is fascinated in the energetics of life, that we are body soul and spirit simultaneously, and how these interact within us personally, and in our connection with others and this Creation out of which we were formed. She has done extra training in EFT, various spiritual and energetic healing modalities, the use of magnets and so on.
As a mother of 5, she is passionate about the health of children, families and interpersonal relationships. It is for these reasons that she chose to surrender her medical license, ahead of being deregistered for writing mask exemptions, vaccine exemptions and Ivermectin scripts in defiance of the AHPRA gag order of March 2022, so that she could speak openly about what the current situation and the threat to the health and wellness of people and children in particular.
