Shortly after our website was attacked and taken down, the Mercola.com headquarters in Cape Coral, Florida, was hit by yet another challenge, Hurricane Ian. It’s been a rough few weeks, but we’ll make it through stronger than before.

Our staff resides primarily in Cape Coral, Fort Myers, Naples and surrounding communities, the area of Southwest Florida where Hurricane Ian made landfall as a Category 4 — nearly Category 5 — storm. Winds of 155 mph were recorded along with a catastrophic storm surge that rose more than 12 feet above ground level.1

Some areas received nearly 16 inches of rainfall, and millions remain cut off from basic necessities like clean drinking water and electricity. Homes were ripped off their foundations and an unknown number of people have been stranded by floodwater and damaged roadways.2 Many are unaccounted for and missing. A press release from the White House described the natural disaster as “likely to rank among the worst in the nation’s history.”3

During the storm, the city of Cape Coral lost 99% of its power,4 and the Sanibel Causeway, a series of bridges that connect Sanibel Island to Florida’s mainland, was destroyed.5 After almost a week, we still had no power and water was only recently restored. More than 100 people in Florida were killed by Hurricane Ian,6 but the official count is likely going to be much higher than what is currently reported.

We are grateful that all our Mercola employees are safe. Some of our staff and colleagues sheltered in place at our Mercola.com headquarters during the storm. However, some staff lost vehicles and others have significant damage to their homes, making them unlivable.

One of our employees whose home is currently uninhabitable is a father to two children under age 5, and expecting twins with his wife any day now. Many of our colleagues have also been displaced and are unable to return to their homes. So to say that this storm has been destructive is an understatement. Some of our staff evacuated the area and will return to streets turned to rubble. It’s difficult to take in the complete annihilation of neighborhoods that stood intact just hours before.

The Mercola.com headquarters ran on a generator for a week and has significant damage to the roof. The storm ripped off the building’s solar panels, damaging the roof along with them, so there are leaks throughout the building. It goes without saying that our offices were closed for a full week.

Most importantly, we’re thankful that everyone made it through, and we have continued to support our employees and the community during this horrific event. Sadly, many in the Ft. Myers/Cape Coral area were not as lucky and have lost their lives. The hurricane and the events that preceded it when our website was attacked have taken a tremendous toll. But make no mistake, we will persevere and come out of this stronger than before.

It’s hard to put the events of the last several weeks into words. The Mercola.com website disappeared early Friday morning, September 23, 2022, following months of other assaults, including our bank accounts being closed and credit cards canceled. The cyberattack also destroyed our email servers. All our email accounts were lost, including my primary email of the last 30 years.

We have been planning and preparing for the possibility that someone might eventually succeed in their attempts to take us down. What we couldn’t have planned for was the takedown occurring just days before one of the worst hurricanes to ever hit Florida, triggering what is being described as a once-in-a-500-year flood event.7

We are still running even though our restoration efforts have been further hindered by the hurricane catastrophe. It will take years for Cape Coral and the surrounding communities to rebuild, and our team is still reeling from the disaster.

Still, we will not back down. Our website is temporarily operating through Substack, which will host our content for the first 48 hours free of charge.

We want to thank everyone who has reached out with concerns, well wishes and assistance. Many have also reached out asking how they may assist. The impacts of the past few weeks, from our website being hacked to surviving a Category 4 hurricane, have been unimaginable.

We now need your help more than ever before. The media, senators, federal agencies, attorneys general and Big Tech have all been used by the global cabal to illegally shut down our right to free speech. Just as we were dusting off from the cyberattack that took down our site, we were sidelined again by the storm of the century. We were knocked off our feet again, but we’re already back standing. They won’t win.

If you’d like to help, the Mercola Market store is now up and running. It’s taken an enormous effort, but our fulfillment centers are open and able to ship products. So if you need anything from the Mercola Market, please support us. We need your help as we continue to support our community in rebuilding our homes and businesses.

We also remain committed to empowering you with the truth about health and the global threats that continue to threaten our sovereignty and freedom. The war is heating up, with an end-goal of seizing complete control over the world and implementing tyrannical global slavery. This isn’t new to us. We have fought and won many battles — including breaking through the fog of the COVID-19 pandemic — and are stronger and more enlightened by each one.

The only way they will win is if they silence any and all opposition. We won’t give up the fight, and they won’t succeed in silencing me. As it has always been, information and knowledge are power. We will continue to share information with everyone who wants to hear it. Again, be sure you’ve signed up for a free subscription to my Substack so you have access to the information we share. Right now, it’s not only your health but the future of humanity that is at stake.

Although we’re facing tremendous adversity, backing down is not an option. We have solutions in the works that will prevent these kinds of interruptions from happening again. Now, however, our efforts must focus in the immediacy on assisting our employees and rebuilding our community in the wake of environmental catastrophe.

These challenges will not be our downfall. On the contrary, they will make us stronger. When you stand up to adversity, it strengthens your resiliency, and we’ll come out more powerful than ever before.

New Law Censors Doctors and Suspends Their Licenses

  • The Federation of State Medical Boards (FSMB), a self-proclaimed advocacy group, recommends states create laws that punish doctors for sharing data that doesn’t align with the consensus, much like a law currently on the California governor’s desk

  • The FSMB was created in 1912 as an annual meeting of state board executive officers and has grown in power and number by offering a range of services to state osteopathic and medical boards, including policy documents and credentialing services

  • The organization has historical ties to Big Pharma, including support for the production and distribution of an FSMB guide to “safely” prescribing opioids for chronic pain that was supported by Purdue Pharmaceuticals

  • The Center for Countering Digital Hate (CCDH) is also working hard to censor information and limit free speech, praising new California legislation that exposes children to data gathering to prove their age when visiting websites and the U.K. Online Safety Bill, which is another peg in the ladder built to remove free speech

The Federation of State Medical Boards (FSMB) issued a statement in April 2022,1 advocating for legislation that would discipline and potentially place a doctor’s medical license at risk for sharing research information with their patients or prescribing medications approved by the FDA.

A physician’s medical license is regulated by the state medical board in each state. Until March 2020, physicians had some latitude in prescribing medications and treatment. Ultimately, analysis was made on whether the patients receive safe care, which generally is judged on the expected outcome and the actual outcome.

That all changed when the medical establishment geared up to face an unknown virus that the public was told could kill millions.2 Some doctors waited for the AMA, CDC and public experts to tell them how to treat patients. Others, like Drs. Paul Marik, Vladamir Zelenko (who passed away in June 2022) and Pierre Kory began using medications such as hydroxychloroquine and ivermectin, which the FDA approved for other conditions.

Patients began successfully recovering without hospitalization, which made the medical establishment sit up and take notice — but not in a good way. The FDA warned that doctors were inappropriately prescribing medications used as horse dewormers that would kill patients.3 4

The newest recommendations by the FSMB propose that medical boards and state legislators take the added step of broadly disciplining all doctors who step outside the established standard of care for COVID-19, which has fared far worse than the treatments developed by the Front Line COVID-19 Critical Care Alliance,5 Zelenko6 and others.

The Defender7 reported that the FSMB has taken a stand against what the FSMB calls the “dissemination of COVID-19 vaccine misinformation.” In a press release published July 29, 2021,8 the FSMB warned physicians could face “disciplinary action by state medical boards, including the suspension or revocation of their medical license.” Most telling is the next statement:

“They also have an ethical and professional responsibility to practice medicine in the best interests of their patients and must share information that is factual, scientifically grounded and consensus-driven for the betterment of public health.”

While physicians who are speaking honestly about the vaccine science are labeled “misinformers” and may face disciplinary action, the “consensus” would never be a consensus of physicians treating patients, but of those powerful few who have assumed the role of oversight and whose focus is political policy and future agenda, not patient care.

Lest you think this recommendation has no teeth, California Gov. Gavin Newsom’s desk that would punish doctors who share “misinformation” on COVID-19 vaccinations and treatments with their patients.9

While the decision to remove the license of a doctor found to violate the law would be up the state medical board, the law itself would still align with the FSMB’s goals, as detailed in a statement issued in April 2022,10 which advocates for laws nationwide that would discipline and punish doctors by state medical boards:

“… adopting a specific policy on misinformation is encouraged in light of the increased prevalence of, and harm caused by, physician-disseminated misinformation in this ongoing pandemic.”

Following the press release in July 2021, the American Board of Internal Medicine and the American Board of Family Medicine issued a joint statement11 in which they supported the FSMB’s position and warned doctors certified by their boards that spreading misinformation could prompt the board to revoke their certification.

Although that press release did not define misinformation or disinformation, the lengthier document released in April 2022 began with a strong statement that “Truthful and accurate information is central to the provision of quality medical care … Honesty, truthfulness and transparency are virtues that society expects of all health professionals.”

Unfortunately for society, it is apparent that the FSMB has defined vaccine truth by its own standards and those standards do not include the transparent information provided by the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS),12 which is regulated and administered by the CDC and the FDA.13

Since the standard of truth is not accurate, the definition may be fluid and could change as the FSMB, AMA or other national health organizations see fit. As The Defender14 writes, critics of the FSMB’s aggressive misinformation and disinformation policy recommendations wonder where the FSMB derives its authority.

The FSMB is the self-proclaimed “voice for state medical boards.”15 The organization began in 1912 as an annual gathering of state board executive officers. They had no headquarters or permanent staff and have since grown in power and number,16 in part by offering a range of services to state osteopathic and medical boards, including policy documents and credentialing services.

In May 1994, the FSMB collaborated with the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services to create another medical authority, the International Association of Medical Regulatory Authorities (IAMRA). In other words, it was the collaboration of two U.S.-based organizations that spawned an international medical regulatory agency.

In August 2022, a psychiatrist from New Zealand, Dr. Emanuel Garcia, voiced concern about Pfizer’s COVID-19 vaccine in a paper published in Global Research. In it, Garcia concluded:17

“In casting an eye over the years since the dramatic introduction of the COVID pandemic, the near total shutdown of the world, the immense transfer of wealth from the middle and poorer classes upwards, the universal imposition of an inadequately tested so-called vaccine, and the vehement suppression of critical early treatment, one cannot but conclude that there is indeed an agenda beyond health and welfare.

The FSMB and the IAMRA have shown by their actions that they are tools whose task is to further this agenda, and that this agenda is both anti-medical and inhumane.”

The Defender also points to historical evidence published in MedPage Today18 demonstrating that Big Pharma has been funneling money to the FSMB for documentation that opioid analgesics are safe. The FSMB wrote and distributed a book to 700,000 practicing doctors with guidelines for a model policy to treat patients with chronic pain using opioid analgesics.

The book production and distribution were funded in part by Purdue Pharmaceuticals. The second edition was published in July 2012, which included CME activity.19 The recent activities have prompted scientists and doctors to ask many questions, some of which were shared by Dr. Meryl Nass, who is a biological warfare epidemiologist and internist.

Her medical license was suspended in January 2022 for “spreading misinformation.” She believes there are many questions that the FSMB’s actions have raised, and outlined several in an email to The Defender:20

  • Why would a nonprofit with no regulatory authority suddenly decide it was important to trash the First Amendment, the Nuremberg Code and other legal doctrines to push for punishing doctors who fail to tell the government’s story and use COVID-19 treatments the government doesn’t want used?

  • Why is the FSMB monitoring the states and collecting information in their attempts to investigate and/or punish doctors for doing their duty to act as learned intermediaries to their patients?

  • Why did the American Board of Internal Medicine, the American Board of Family Medicine, the American Medical Association and the American Association of Pediatrics push identical policies in lockstep in mid-2021 that would destroy physician autonomy, when physicians are, one would think, their clients?

  • Why did the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists push for experimental vaccinations during all trimesters of pregnancy?

Limiting your access to information controls what you see and hear and therefore what you think and how you act. Disguised by an organizational name that elicits feelings of protection, the Center for Countering Digital Hate (CCDH) spends most of the time doing exactly the opposite.

The founder and current CEO of the organization, Imran Ahmed,21 started the group in Britain and currently lives in Washington, D.C., where he has influential access to some of the most influential think tanks and politicians in the country.

His focus has turned to censoring information he labels “misinformation,” however he defines it. I’m featured on his anti-vaxx misinformation page as a charismatic pied-piper leading people down a dark path to destruction since, according to his logic, most people cannot read and think for themselves.

The CCDH, and Ahmed in particular,22 are praising new California legislation that reportedly will protect children’s safety online. Newsom signed this legislation into law September 15, 2022.23 It imposes strict criteria on websites that children are likely to view. It is being promoted as a thorn in the side of Big Tech as it establishes how companies can collect and use personal data for children.

CNN used the example of prohibiting tracking children’s geolocation and requiring websites to default to the highest privacy protection when children are using the website. Nicole Gill is the executive director of Accountable Tech, which has been highly critical of large Tech platforms. She told CNN business:24

“This new law will upend the status quo and take real steps to stop pervasive surveillance, profiling, and manipulation of kids online. It also will serve as a transformative model for other states and countries, so that every child is protected from Big Tech’s abuse and exploitation — not just those in California.”

The law also changes the expectation for businesses, which previously only required action when the business had “actual knowledge” that children were using the website and the new law requires protection when children are “likely” to access the service.

While interesting in theory, in practice it likely means that websites will be forced to scan all user faces to determine age — which in and of itself is a different form of “tracking” you and invading your privacy. This necessarily would have to happen with each use since most family computers are shared by children and adults.

Biometric scanned data for all children and adults could be stored and saved by websites and Big Tech, which gives these entities greater access and greater control than they have now.

CCDH is also highly supportive of the U.K. Online Safety Bill,25 which is another peg planned in the removal of free speech. This bill has come under fire from civil rights organizations that recognize it gives unprecedented censorship power to the Secretary of State and the Office of Communications with limited parliamentary or judicial oversight.

The Institute of Economic Affairs (IEA), a free market think tank founded in 1955, calls The Online Safety Bill “unsafe.”26 Among other things it outlines the broad scope of powers the bill gives, which raises significant issues for free speech, privacy and innovation. It is telling that two powerful pieces of legislation that will ultimately censor speech and negatively impact your privacy are supported and promoted by the CCDH.

Report Dated October the 8th 2022

 By Anna Von Reitz

This evening I am able to positively assure everyone that we have avoided a banking and insurance industry collapse.  We have not been able to keep the real estate bubble from bursting and the related fall-out from that, which could mean that up to 30% of the workforce in the United States and Europe will be out of work for some time.
It is also uncertain whether or not we will be able to prevent another illegal and immoral “Mercenary Conflict” that certain Parties are attempting to mount against Russia, but we will keep you all posted in hopes that our combined objection and intercession will put a stop to it.  
The American and Russian Alliance of 1858 is a Treaty between the Russian people and the American people, guaranteeing peace and mutual aid between us. This important Treaty between our two nations  has never been broken, and we do not intend that it ever shall be. 
The so-called Biden Administration has no permission to act against Russia so long as the Russians honor our 1858 Alliance, and any actions taken by Biden or by Perpetrators acting under his orders as the “Commander in Chief” of a commercial corporation are to be recognized as private, unauthorized, and illegal activities. 
It disturbs us that so many people have forgotten the fact that Mercenary Wars are illegal by nature, and that the Perpetrators of Mercenary Conflicts lack the standing to declare war (which is why such :”wars” are never formally declared). 
Thus, we see the puppets of the western oil cartels sabotaging the Nordstream pipelines, callously blaming their victims,  and acting against the principles of the free market that they are supposedly championing — until and unless it threatens their own stranglehold on American, Chinese, and European energy markets. 
These actions which they have undertaken in a private capacity need to be recognized as the crimes that they are and prosecuted to the fullest extent of our Public Law and the Code of Military Justice.  
Mr. Biden has no authority to ignore, bypass, or abrogate our Treaty Obligations and we strenuously oppose all and any “orders” issued under our Delegated Authority to any contrary effect. This includes orders to the military that would trespass against The American and Russian Alliance of 1858.  
This Treaty stands and has never been replaced nor trespassed in over 160 years.  We do not accept any proposal to transgress against this venerable Treaty nor do we  provide any acquiescence allowing our employees to disrespect the peace between Russia and The United States of America. 
If, as it appears, Mr. Biden has self-interestedly ordered the destruction of key pieces of Russian and Western European gas pipeline infrastructure so as to force Europeans to be dependent on Middle Eastern – North American energy resources and also forcing them to pay exorbitant  “Climate Taxes” for the privilege, he should be recognized as a felon engaged in promoting an illegal Mercenary Conflict and also recklessly undertaking damage to the environment.  
Because of these ill-considered and unconscionable attacks against the Nordstream 1 and 2 pipelines old coal-burning power generation facilities will have to be cranked up, bringing back the spectre of acid rain destroying European forests and meadowlands, black smoke polluting the air, and all leaving behind a legacy of poisonous coal fly ash to dispose of.  Because of these criminal actions against the Nordstream pipelines, vast amounts of natural gas have escaped from the damaged pipelines, destroying the ocean flora and fauna in proximity to the ruptures.  Because of these criminal activities millions of Europeans face a winter of uncertain energy supplies and rising energy costs.
Once again, human suffering and damage to the Earth’s biomes has been the result of unchecked corporate greed and power-mongering. 
How much longer is any thinking being supposed to put up with this malicious mismanagement and abuse of corporate privileges?  How many more homes and jobs have to be lost and how much more of the natural environment prostituted as “collateral damage” before we all rise up with one accord and say— enough! 
No more illegal Mercenary Conflicts.  No more sabotage.  No more illicit foreign occupation of sovereign nations by commercial corporations.  No more commodity market rigging.  No more job losses.  No more bail-ins, bail-outs, or other mischief perpetuated against the Public by private corporate interests.  
We call upon every sentient being on this planet to condemn the damage done to the Nordstream pipelines and ask for a full investigation and prosecution of the criminals responsible for these acts of commercial and biological terrorism.  
Let us next turn our attention to how best to soften the collapse of the real estate speculation bubble, remove illegal mortgages, and retrain millions of workers for more satisfying and productive occupations.  
James Clinton Belcher, Head of State

Bangladesh power grid COLLAPSES, leaving 140 million people without power

Image: Bangladesh power grid COLLAPSES, leaving 140 million people without power

(Natural News) Some 140 million people in Bangladesh are without power after the nation’s power grid collapsed on October 4.

Nearly the entire country, the AFP News Agency reported, suffered a blackout due to the collapse. Officials from the state-run Bangladesh Power Development Board (BPDB) said a power transmission failure in the eastern part of the country tripped power plants nationwide, cutting off power to the entire country, including the capital city of Dhaka.

BPDB official Shameem Hasan announced that engineers are investigating “glitches” in the power system. There have apparently been serious problems with the Bangladesh electricity grid for several months now.

As usual, Russia’s invasion of Ukraine is taking the blame. Energy prices are rising, along with food prices. And this, we are told, has “wrought havoc on Bangladesh’s electricity grid in recent months, with utilities struggling to source enough diesel and gas to meet demand.”

“A depreciating currency and dwindling foreign exchange reserves left Bangladesh unable to import sufficient fossil fuels, forcing it to close diesel plants and leave some gas-fired power stations idle,” reports further add. (Related: The transition to green energy is also weakening America’s power grid.)

What will become of Bangladesh’s clothing industry?

Keep in mind that Bangladesh is one of the world’s largest garment exporters after China. If energy problems there continue, the rest of the world could lose a large segment of the clothing market.

Brighteon.TV

Bangladesh is also an emerging outsourcing destination for business operations such as call centers. If those are lost, multinational corporations will have to choose another country to exploit.

Most important of all are the people of Bangladesh whose lives are now at risk due to the unstable energy situation across the country.

“Coming soon to Western countries,” wrote a commenter about the turmoil that Bangladesh faces due to the escalating energy crisis.

“These are World Economic Forum trial runs,” added another. “October is looking to be full of excitement. Get your kettle-cooked popcorn over a campfire ready!”

Others pointed out that shifting power grid conditions can be disastrous for electronics like kitchen appliances, mobile phones, and even electric cars. Should similar unexpected blackouts occur here in the West, people will want to make sure that their electronics are surge-protected.

“Drop in voltage and frequency tends to fry electronic components,” one of them wrote. “That is why grid operators do rolling blackouts instead of uncontrolled brownouts.”

Another commenter wrote that a similar situation occurred in Utah back in the 1980s. Claiming to have worked for Utah Power and Light (UP&L) at the time, this person says the situation in Bangladesh is “surprisingly easy to have happen.”

“A big generator trips offline, now the load is too high, a bunch of load trips offline, now there’s too much generation, more generators trip, and in a cascade taking only seconds, you’ve lost everything,” he writes.

“Bringing it back up is a matter of delicately balancing load and generation as you rebuild the network. And that’s if nothing fried. UP&L dropped it once while they were bringing it back and had to start over, but eventually they got it.”

“Hear that? It’s the sound of one hundred million sewing machines sitting idle,” wrote another about how no more garments can be made in Bangladesh without power.

Another rewrote the words to the famous John Lennon song “Imagine” to reflect the current energy crisis in Bangladesh and around the world:

“Imagine no more electricity.

I wonder if you can.

Imagine all the people

Livin’ life in darkness.”

Child mutilators say their mutilations are “evidence-based care,” but where's the evidence?

Image: Child mutilators say their mutilations are “evidence-based care,” but where’s the evidence?

(Natural News) Are you a male interested in science-backed “gender affirming” surgery? That’s where surgeons create a vagina from a section of your bowels, and use tissues from your amputated penis to create a clitoris. Seattle Children’s Hospital wants everyone to know that it is their “mission” to do this to little boys who are confused by Leftist social media and now think they want to be a girl.

It’s an all-ages show, so step right up to the 3000-mile circus (the whole Leftist gender-fluid country), and get those irreversible surgeries to “affirm” all that gender confusion by making life WAY more confusing. What’s most confusing is that these child-mutilating surgeons and their hospitals claim all this work is based on science, but they don’t believe there’s a difference between men and women, or boys and girls, such as claiming men can get pregnant. If you don’t believe it, just watch Fox News tell Resident Biden all about it.

In other words, the misinformation specialists are hard at work confusing children by pretending there’s no difference between males and females, while sawing off their private parts (which may never work again) to make them look like the other gender, biologically-speaking.

Seattle Children’s Hospital brags about being… “the only pediatric academic medical center with fellowship-trained plastic surgeons who provide gender-affirming surgery” in their region, and they’re doubling down now that they’re getting lots of resistance from normal people and responsible parents in this country.

Brighteon.TV

“We will continue to offer evidence-based gender-affirming care because it is lifesaving care and is aligned with our mission to help every patient live their healthiest and most fulfilling life possible,” they claim. “Lifesaving care?” Really? So the teenager was going to commit suicide if he didn’t get his penis turned into a vagina, or her breasts cut off and a fake penis added to her crotch? These are “unique needs” of adolescents and teens, they further claim.

Non-functioning sex organs and infertility are “side effects” of dangerous “gender-affirming” surgery promoted at Seattle Children’s Hospital

Just because surgeons use a scalpel and a mask, and do the surgery adolescents are saying they want, doesn’t make the procedure or results “science-based” or even safe. So if social media starts saying that gorilla-human-hybrids are now popular, should all the teenagers rush to the closest children’s hospital and get an ape’s tail permanently sewn between their buttocks?

Seattle Children’s Hospital website will do just about any kind of “revision surgery” on adolescents that has to do with altering gender looks, like double mastectomies, Adam’s apple removal, and “bottom surgery.” These victims of voluntary mutilation can suffer total loss of libido, proper ability to urinate, and permanent infertility.

Trying to change one’s gender by undergoing dangerous surgery is not by any means “lifesaving care” or necessary. It also doesn’t ‘affirm’ the opposite gender because biologically one remains the same gender from birth to death. It’s just a huge, perverted distraction from everything in this world that actually matters, like family, health, safety, and livelihood.

Still, if the insane, gender-fluid Leftists had their way, the entire country would be chock full of deformed trans-humans and it would look like the Island of Dr. Moreau, where we would all be like violent Neanderthals, having sex outside everywhere, all day, like the animals on the Discovery Channel.

Be happy with what your parents and God have given to you. Don’t take things for granted, and keep those morals and ethics in tact. Tune your internet channel to Gender.news for updates on the gender-confused insane Left pushing mutilating sex surgery on kids across the nation.

China establishes 'police stations' in countries around the world to spy on, interdict Chinese citizens living abroad

Image: China establishes ‘police stations’ in countries around the world to spy on, interdict Chinese citizens living abroad

(Natural News) The Chinese Communist Party may run China, but as an organization, it has a global reach.

That is thanks to a years-long initiative by the regime in Beijing to set up unofficial “police stations” in countries all over the world in order to engage in spying and illegal policing actions against Chinese citizens living abroad, according to new reports.

“Police in China, in coordination with overseas association of Chinese, run by entities of the Chinese Communist Party, has established a series of overseas police ‘service stations,’ in particular in Europe,” says a report from the group Safeguard Defenders, a human rights NGO established in 2016. “In Spain, there are 9 such stations so far uncovered. While much of their work is to simply service Chinese residents, or tourists, evidence from the Chinese government itself now shows that one station in Madrid, has been actively working with Chinese police to engage in covert and illegal policing operations in Spain.”

An investigative report published last month by the organization contains five major findings:

— Between April 2021 and July 2022, Chinese police “persuaded” 230,000 claimed fugitives to return to China “voluntarily” (while admitting not all the targets have committed any crimes);

— Established Nine forbidden countries, where Chinese nationals are no longer allowed to live unless they have “good reason”;

— New tools for “persuasion” operations laid down on paper, including denying the target’s children in China the right to education, and other limitations on family members, punishing those without suspicion of any wrongdoing by “guilt by association” (similar to the North Korean practice);

— The establishment of at least 54 police-run “overseas police service centers” across five continents, some of which are implicated in collaborating with Chinese police in carrying out policing operations on foreign soil (including in Spain);

— A new law adopted 2 September, going into effect 1 December, establishes full extraterritoriality over Chinese and foreigners globally for certain crimes (fraud, telecom fraud, online scams, etc.).

“For this overseas operation, rather than using international police or judicial cooperation mechanisms – which provide for control mechanisms to protect the rights of the target, including the right to a fair trial and the presumption of innocence prior to judgment – official provincial statements and guidelines from the local Ministries of Public Security or Procuratorates highlight the mass use of persuasion to return methods,” the report summary states.

The organization noted that in a single 15-month period, all of which occurred during the COVID-19 pandemic that China caused, hundreds of thousands of Chinese nationals were returned to the mainland so they could face criminal charges through the ‘persuasion’ methods. Often, those included harassment and threats to family members still living in China, or made directly to the targets living abroad through physical or online means.

Safeguard Defenders founder and director Peter Dahlin, who co-authored the report, noted in an interview with The Epoch Times that after his group released its findings, security officials or related agencies in several North American and European countries have approached the organization “to sit down and have a briefing discussion” on the Chinese government police operations.

“So they are certainly aware of it, at least in some countries,” Dahlin told the outlet.

“We’ve also seen a [Chinese] government notice that said that 10 different provinces should launch these types of operations on a pilot basis,” he said, referencing the report’s citation of a July 5, 2018, news release issued by Beijing.

“So, we have two of these operations uncovered [in Fujian Province and Zhejiang Province]. There might be eight more provinces doing this that could have their own stations, and we have not been able to track down that information yet. That’s why we keep saying that … we believe and we have good reason to think that there are more [overseas Chinese police stations],” he added.
