Having a holiday abroad might feel like a distant memory by now but something that is still entirely possible when you know your rights.
After all, UCD professor and human rights activist Dolores Cahill, one of the five founding members of FAFTA (The Freedom Airway & Freedom Travel Alliance), has faired regularly in the last year despite the obstacles and scare tactics provided by our respective governments. You may have seen her with the World Doctors Alliance pop up in protests against human rights violations recently in Sweden and Denmark.
FAFTA’s mission is to create customised trips through an exclusive network of natural health travel companies. By acting as a connector between members, the travel industry itself (which could really do with the lift), and of course, welcoming destinations. Brazil and Florida, who are not in draconian lockdowns, are advertised on the FAFTA website www.freedomairway.com.
She and her crew are embarking on a bold venture to create an independent airline to accommodate people that would like to enjoy one of their basic human rights. Freedom of movement.
Sounds great, but how does it work?
With the support of its rapidly growing membership spreading across over 40 countries, FAFTA is using a growing network of lawyers, doctors, scientists, human rights experts, and general good guys to create a collective voice to tackle things like masks, tests, quarantines, and mandates.
These mandates are not laws and can be fought and won. It’s just about knowing your stuff and having the right guidance. They are committed, informed, and here to help.
On a personal note, this was the first bit of news this year that actually put a hopeful smile on my face.
However pessimistic I get at times about the future, and however I struggle to position myself against this new normal, becoming a member and getting a bit of hope for a small fee of $100 (£76) was the easiest and best money I spent this year. These guys are on the front line pushing back and fighting for us and what’s right. I genuinely believe if we can come together on innovative ideas like this, we have the collective power to take back all our freedoms.
As was quoted in the members’ video by co-founder Kevin Jenkins “Build it and they will come.”
