An emergency summit, led by the Prime Minister himself, will take place next week - on the agenda, the devastation caused by domestic violence. (Subscribe: bit.ly/C4_News_Subscribe)
In the first three weeks of lockdown it has been reported that 14 women and two children have been killed. The government says their summit will deliver an action plan to protect and support victims - and there's no doubting the need. Calls to helplines are soaring. We have had access to one women's refuge which has been inundated with calls from women desperate to escape living in lockdown with their abuser.

Why is there no men’s refuge? What about the men? Women annoy men through nagging and getting fucked by Chad an Tyrone 😤

My latest article on Oneworld.press: oneworld.press/?module=articles&action=view&id=1463 The Indian And Nigerian Cases Robert F. Kennedy Jr., the nephew of former American President John F. Kennedy, exposed Bill Gates' agenda in India and his “obsession with vaccines” in a lengthy piece. Kennedy Jr.'s message came days after Robert Kennedy’s granddaughter and her son were found dead under suspicious circumstances. Almost as if sounding a warning about an impending tragedy to the Kennedy family, legendary American singer Bob Dylan came out of a decade-long isolation to revive the JFK murder mystery with a cryptic song. Whatever happened in India remains a mystery, just like with the Kennedy's, and the rumors were quickly debunked by websites such as Snopes. The truth is still to be found in India, of course. It's the poorer Indian girls, usually illiterate, who got vaccinated and therefore they don‘t understand what happened to them. A month later, based on an intercepted intelligence report, a controversy erupted in Nigeria wherein it was revealed that Bill Gates offered a $10 million bribe for a forced vaccination program for COVID-19 to the Nigerian House of Representatives. So the richest man on the planet is playing “God“. Despite having no education in medicine, he wants to vaccinate the whole planet. I would call him a good merchant, without any real knowledge. Event 201 In October 2019, just two months before the COVID-19 outbreak in Wuhan, China: “The Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security in partnership with the World Economic Forum and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation hosted Event 201, a high-level pandemic exercise on October 18, 2019, in New York, US. The exercise illustrated areas where public/private partnerships will be necessary during the response to a severe pandemic in order to diminish large-scale economic and societal consequences." They were quick to issue a statement upon being asked many questions after the COVID-19 outbreak stating that Event 201 exercise had nothing to do with the current pandemic. The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation's Grants If you take the time to examine the foundation‘s lists of grants, which is an extensively long one, you will find a few surprises. Whoever thinks the foundation is only giving grants for medical research or vaccination programs is mistaken. Here are a few examples of journalism that he is funding: BBC, Guardian, El Pais, Le Monde, Endemol, Die Zeit, European Journalism Centre, etc... oneworld.press/?module=articles&action=view&id=1463

These violent men should be dragged out of the homes where they are hurting their women and children and put into metal cages in jails together. Let them beat each other up there, and let it last as long as necessary, i.e. until their families can find somewhere else to live, far away from the shithead, as well as getting divorces. Why should these men get away with it. Castrate the bastards!

A woman screeching like a 2 year old ! I nearly had a heart attack hearing that woman’s screech ! I was listening with my powerful headphones, C’mon you editors ! People watch stuff with a headphone these days and nobody likes a piercing screech at the beginning of a video , that terrible screech triggered a migraine for me !!!

I didn't write this but I do agree... Anyone who thinks social distancing is a good idea for the next few years, or thinks that a 'benevolent' dictatorship is for the good of the people, well good luck with that! I am a free Sovereign Human Being and if you want to stay home, stay home. That's your sovereign right to choose. If you want to wear a mask, wear a mask. That's your sovereign right to choose. If you want to avoid large crowds, avoid large crowds. That's your sovereign right to choose. I am not required to descend into poverty for you. I am not required to abstain from human contact for you.(I wish I could bold this part) -B I am not required to shop alone, without my friends and family, for you. I refuse to participate in "quarantine life" until there's an unsafe, untested vaccine released in eighteen months. I refuse to receive said vaccine to make others feel more safe. That IS my sovereign right to choose!!! If you're convinced the vaccine is safe and effective, you can get it. Some of you are allowing fear and policies devoid of scientifically accurate data to destroy our country and ruin your life. I can't control your self-destructive behaviors, but we all have a say in the once great USA and the planet we live on. We need to tell legislators that we demand options. We have a constitutional right to take risks. Life is full of bacteria and viruses--many of which spread before symptoms manifest and after they subside. We have a Sovereign right to receive OR refuse vaccines. The data was inaccurate at best; purposely overblown to justify government overreach at worst. Stop allowing the government to destroy: The Food Supply Small Businesses Medical Autonomy Access to Healthcare Religious Gatherings Privacy Rights Fellowship Our Mental Health Our Freedom When the "new normal" is filled with starvation, depression, suicide, child abuse, domestic violence, imprisonment, governmental spying, and pure DESPERATION, the virus is going to look preferable to the world you helped facilitate. I'm going to turn this around on people from now on. Those that say I'm (or anyone that supports the mission to get us back open) putting money over lives wanting the country back open for business... Hear this: -YOU don't care about the people that will kill themselves out of hopelessness -YOU don't care about small businesses that'll close their doors (THEIR LIVELIHOOD) permanently -YOU don't care about the children/women/men that'll be victims of domestic abuse -YOU don't care about people defaulting on their mortgages -YOU don't care about bills going unpaid by families with ZERO income right now -YOU don't care about people wondering where their next meal will come from -YOU don't care about the people that'll lose their sobriety and slip back into addiction -YOU don't care about the people that will starve -YOU support the inevitable looting that'll take place -YOU don't care about anyone that's murdered the longer this shut down goes on -YOU don't care about people's mental health -YOU don't care about the children that DO need teachers and educators to guide & educate them -YOU don't care about the economy crashing down around us -YOU REALLY DON'T CARE. -YOU love your shackles -YOU are pathetic, begging your leaders for MORE shut down and MORE regulations I will NOT tolerate another person telling me that I don't care about lives. I care about the situation in its entirety. But YOU don't care about any of that so... YOU stay home. YOU wear a mask. YOU live in fear. Authored by a group, those of us WHO GENUINELY CARE about HUMANITY. Please - Copy & paste if you agree!

For heaven's sake - save the life of a woman in danger of being killed! Don't worry about a bogus virus which is being hyped up by the globalist Deep State & MSM merely for the purposes of imposing a dangerous vaccine that, together with 5G, will not only kill millions (Agenda 21) and be blamed on a mutated cv, but will also contain nano technology that can track us all 24/7. End of all freedoms. The more people that wake up to the evils of the globalist agenda the greater the chance of stopping this from happening. Wake up!!!

I so respect these women refuge. You are saving lives. It's so hard to hear about all these women and children who need to suffer from aggressive and often narcissistic partners trying to destroy and control other people. The sad part is that they very often continues decades even if they have separated. Sooooo sad!

on the "plus" side, women and children are far less likely to die from Covid. So escaping abuse at risk of catching Covid is not really a tough decision to make

@H I'm not claiming covid had anything to do with the deaths or believing the government statistics.. It's for those who belive in the statistics to defend them or at least counter my point of the illness being primary or secondary

@H Please show me the scientific study that says the difference between covid in primary and secondary basis, as far as I'm aware all 30k people dead haven't had autopsies and even the "infected" haven't seen a doctor to official diagnoses, how are you so sure and what have you read?

@Catsnmi2 Covid often causes secondary illnesses, noticeably pneumonia, which would not have resulted in their death if they didn't have Covid. Also - proof?
Catsnmi2
Catsnmi2 2 months ago
Jimbo, the real doctors (ie not the evil globalist Deep State 'experts') say there is a 0.1% chance of dying WITH - not FROM - covid. Numbers are being fudged. Those registered deaths 'with cv' have been from other causes - terminal cancer, heart attacks, strokes etc.The DS has propagated this covid lie in order to impose a highly dangerous vaccine which will kill and control (via microchips) us 24/7. Agenda 21. These brave doctors speaking out are being banned from YT and gagged by the corrupt WHO. Some have already been murdered.

Sad to see that out of 18 comments several expressed hatred towards immigrants - nothing to do with domestic violence. Several more comments were "but what about the poor men"! Why would a video about a women's refuge be about men?! This video has only been up for a couple of hours at this point, but I'm so looking forward to reading a deluge of comments all about the poor men. 😑 .

@Todd Love1 If you care to research the statistics you will find that men are very rarely murdered by female partners. Women and children are murdered frequently enough - by male partners - that it is considered to be a problem in society that requires a solution. For the very small minority of men who experience DV in either gay or straight relationships provision should be made. It wouldn't cost the government very much to do this, because very few men are at risk of being murdered by their partner.

Yes, you're right. There cannot ever be a video of men's shelter, because they don't exist in the UK. That's why we focus on women's shelter in this video.

What about serious consequences for these violent partners? Surely they are the problem that needs to be sorted out. How about having prisons just for violent men who abuse their partners? Why should it be the women and children who have to take on the burden of suffering? Make these men pay by giving up their freedom!

Easy. Should say they're a foreigner in need of help & apply for asylum & they'll get accommodation & a living allowance right away. Saying you're a native in need of help is foolish, good luck with that.
