Growing condemnations: Australian health workers speak out against victimisation of medical practitioners for opposing Gaza genocide

The Health Workers Rank-and-File Committee (Australia) (HWRFC) continues its campaign in defence of health workers who have spoken out against the ongoing genocide in Gaza.

In a resolution passed on January 17, the HWRFC condemned the doxxing campaign orchestrated by Zionist forces against health workers who have publicly opposed the genocide and ongoing war crimes committed by Israel’s Netanyahu government.

At least 39 individuals who have opposed the ongoing Israeli war crimes have been reported to the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA) by Zionists who have weaponised medical complaints procedures to falsely accuse them of antisemitism. The careers, professional reputations and livelihoods of the reported doctors and other health workers now hang in the balance as a result of these bogus accusations.

At a recent meeting of the HWRFC, one of the victimised doctors from Sydney spoke about her experiences. She explained that when doctors sought to discuss the genocide in Facebook groups, they were suppressed:

“Everything was shut down, there was censorship. The only comment I made in one group was to just say that Palestinians have been dying for a very long time, they’ve been dying very quietly and that they were probably going to be annihilated after October 7, which is exactly what is happening. And for that, I was accused on social media of being antisemitic,” the doctor stated.
