By JR Valrey, The People’s Minister of Information
Econzi Musa is a frontliner in the fight against mandatory vaccinations, and has been fired from her job at Merritt College in Oakland, California, the founding place of the Black Panther Party, because of her refusal to get vaccinated. This particular fight with Merritt College has been going on since October of ‘21, which is when the administration sent out a letter making it mandatory for students and staff to take the jab by a certain deadline; that has come and passed. Staff and students were told that there would be certain exemptions granted at the school’s discretion, which is yet to be seen.
In California and across the country, corporations and the government are forcing employees from all walks of life to choose between getting an experimental vaccine and losing their jobs, which are their means to feed their families. Since mid-February, the city of Oakland has made it mandatory to provide proof of vaccination to be able to access most facets of social society, similar to the city of San Francisco, who started months earlier. Discrimination on a medical basis is being legalized around us, although the science does not support the notion that the vaccinated are any safer to be around in society than the unnvaccinated, because they are not immune from catching and spreading the virus. This basically translates into – the corporate and government’s policies are not protecting anyone, they are punishing those that will not comply.
Econzi Musa is a shero, who is standing up to government and administrative medical tyranny, she and others battling against this international corruption and mass experimentation should be supported. Here is her story.
JR Valrey: When did Merritt College begin to push for a vaccine mandate for all of its employees? What were the terms for exemption?
Econzi Musa: Merritt began pushing the vaccine mandate back in October 2021. In order to maintain your position, you needed either a medical exemption or approved religious exemption.
JR Valrey: Why do you refuse to be vaccinated? How did Merritt College respond to your exemption request?
Econzi Musa: I refuse to be vaccinated because I have no trust in their concoction, nor their intentions. As stated in our previous interview, my father served 25 years in the Air Force, and died of a cancer that had a number instead of a name. Merritt College, or at least the Vice Chancellor Richard McKinley had the audacity to say that my religious exemption is denied because they did not feel my beliefs were sincere, and according to their research there is no pork in the ingredients.
JR Valrey: Have Covid rates skyrocketed at the college since the pandemic?
Econzi Musa: Yes, Covid rates have absolutely skyrocketed. All of the colleges in the Peralta Community College District have been sharing updates, daily, on staff and students that tested positive and were recently on campus. My inbox stays flooded. I swear this looks like idiots on patrol. How are they concerned with people’s health and well-being while still enforcing a return in the midst of a rise in cases? The whole system of testing the Friday before you come to campus Monday is not working! There have been reports that a student or staff came on campus Monday through Wednesday and got late results that they were positive for Covid-19.
JR Valrey: Are there other employees that refuse to get vaccinated? Are they going through similar circumstances? Are y’all connected in any way?
Econzi Musa: Yes there are other employees that refuse to get vaccinated, and some that are vaccinated that still do not want to return to in-person teaching, if they can avoid it. A petition was signed from all of the Peralta colleges, demanding that they consider the number of recent positive cases reported, and close the campus again. Unfortunately I do not know of anyone else who’s exemption was denied. There is absolutely no connection, and I strongly doubt that Merritt College would try to foster it either. My guess is, I will figure out who refused vaccination by the ever increasing amount of job openings they have. Not to mention, the vaccine is mandated for students too, so it’s natural that those numbers will be on a steady decline. The pandemic stressors alone were enough to see student registration and retention drastically drop, thus their real reason for reopening. Money, not safety, is of importance. Please, if I am wrong, make it make sense.
JR Valrey: Does the college expect to fire the unvaccinated, and to just be immediately able to replace them? How will this mass-firing affect Merritt College’s ability to operate?
Econzi Musa: They have been threatening to fire me since October 2021. I have no idea what the plan is once the unvaccinated have been fired. Merritt’s method of operation is a whole other article in and of itself; an already lacking process has seemed to only get worse. Some of my emails from November 2021 still have not been responded to, processes that would take hours are taking days and longer. No doubt whomever the faithful vaccinated are, their health and well-being is of no concern to those who are now overworking them.
JR Valrey: Do you think that firing you and your unvaccinated co-workers was more about health or politics?
Econzi Musa: As stated above, it is not about health. I began working there at the beginning of Covid, and sat in on the meetings where declining numbers were a major focus. The return back to campus was nothing more than a mandate to put your life on the line, in order to meet their quota.
JR Valrey: What did this most recent letter that was sent to you by Merritt College say? How do you feel about what it says?
Econzi Musa: In the most recent letter it was full of blame toward me,stating that they gave me months to be in compliance with their policy. Termination process would begin if I did not have the first shot by February 16, 2022. Well shit, I gave them months to approve my exemption, but that did not happen. I responded to them, “I have not been punked into taking the vaccine thus far, you’ve had months to approve my exemption and yet you doubt my sincerity.” It pissed me off to see that letter, then it made me laugh. These ninjas think that they are God, and that I/we should fear them like so. Nah, my Creator Yah has my every need and concern covered, so I will not fear. Even as they have made their threats to fire the unvaccinated, I’m forever getting emails about campus flooding, systems down in the district, screening closures from the nurses providing covid testing on campus; they are dealing with the ten plagues dang near on campus, while boasting of their power. I guess they are waiting for the staff and students to die off from Covid and/or multiple shots taken to stay in compliance or the building to roll down hill due to their lack of regard for the times.
JR Valrey: Why is the unvaccinated having a right to control what goes in our body, an important fight?
Econzi Musa: Without this fight, it can easily lead to more control by the authorities to force whatever they want. They did it with our children first right, the religious exemptions were denied a few years ago, in order for the children to attend daycare and school. It made it all the easier to force this same practice on adults, don’t vaccinate = risk your job.
JR Valrey: How could people support your case? How could people support other unvaccinated people?
Econzi Musa: People can support my cause, by supporting a loved one near them that is fighting a similar battle; the freedom of choice when it comes to what we put in our body. There are some that have smirked at me for my stance, instead of respecting my choice as I have their own. Don’t be that person. Advocate, lend a hand, assist with resources and opportunities to keep one another afloat and motivated in these time. Just as the school mandates years ago, caused people to start homeschooling, these times may be a sign that it’s time to unplug from employers who truly have no value for life. May we pull together to make things happen, keep things progressing.
