In 2016 the controversial documentary Vaxxed hit the scene exposing corruption at the CDC and the fact that they covered up a link between vaccines and increased Autism rates in African American boys.
This film was pulled from the Tribeca film festival and vilified by those who had everything to lose if the public were to question vaccines. Being banned from the Tribeca film festival was a blessing in disguise because on April 1, 2016 Vaxxed premiered at the prestigious Angelika Film Center in NYC.
Vaxxed would go on to be released theatrically in over 60 U.S and Canadian cities and was the 8th highest grossing documentary of 2016. Vaxxed was also the highest grossing documentary for a single screen documentary showing in 2016. Not an easy thing to achieve in the digital age.
Vaxxed is now free to stream for a limited time ending on May 17th at noon PST. I urge everyone to get together and watch this film, but I urge you to do more than just watch it.
I urge you to use it as a starting point to discuss vaccines with friends and family members who might not be thinking about vaccines or might still be pro vaccine in spite of the evidence that they cause more harm than good.
Watch this film with your children and if they have friends in the room that is good too! It is never to soon to start educating those around you about potential harm.
As the anti vaccine movement we are the resistance meaning that we have a duty to stand up for those who have been harmed and those who will be harmed in the future by vaccines. This is why Vaxxed works as a conversation starter but should never be the end of the conversation.
WE THE PEOPLE have the power to make change but we have to be willing to stand up, speak out, and warn others. I urge everyone to click on the article links to learn more about Vaxxed and to watch the free stream of this important documentary as well as watch the following Vaxxed related videos.
