The AVN Takes Legal Action to Protect All Our Rights

Australia is in a tailspin – descending almost inexorably into tyranny.

We are not able to travel from State to State or overseas, work in our normal jobs – even when those jobs are part of our own business, go out to eat, drink, to the cinema, dance, sing, or do just about anything else without agreeing to take an experimental jab that has already killed hundreds of our countrymen and women and injured nearly 80,000.

It is obvious to anyone who has observed what’s been happening over the last 22 months that our governments – State and Federal – are determined to remove every right our parents and grandparents fought for in many wars over the last 100 years or so.

We at the Australian Vaccination-risks Network (AVN) have watched this with great dismay, as we know many of you have done as well. We have participated in protests, made submissions, written letters and for the most part, though these actions have put the government and their bureaucracy on notice, their course seems to have been set and unchanged through it all.

Court cases have arisen and been lost – and others are ongoing – we wish them all well. Though we have informed people of these cases and done everything we can to offer whatever assistance we can to the organisers, the AVN has not personally gotten behind any of them.

Until now.


We recently received a legal advice prepared by a retired barrister, that was informally reviewed by two eminent legal minds (a former Justice and current QC), where they were of the view the case should run. This has seen the AVN engage instructing solicitors for formally engaging a QC or SC to settle a final opinion based upon a complete brief. Assuming AVN is informed the case has merit, and the proposed Application is filed and heard, then if it wins (there is never a guarantee) .. there is every possibility of turning the current situation on its head!

The AVN feels so strongly about this case, we decided to start the fund-raising going by donating $20,000 already and directly into the AVN Judicial Review Fund of our instructing solicitors, Irish Bentley. We hope that will convince all of you reading this to also chip in. Whatever you can give – and we know that times are especially hard right now – would be very much appreciated.

We have set up an account at the Christian fundraising site, givesendgo.com and all funds donated will be transferred to the trust account of the Instructing Solicitor in this case.

Now is the time for ALL freedom-loving people – those who have taken the jab and those who have not; those who are staring down unemployment and those who are still able to work; those who want to protect their children and grandchildren and those who simply believe that the government’s rights stop at our skin – to pull together as one.

Whether you are able to donate $5 or $5,000, we need you now! And if you have no money to give to this cause, we need you to share this with everyone you possibly can – both here in Australia and overseas.

What we do here and now can have wide-ranging and positive influences on the entire world. There are more of us who believe in freedom than there are those who want to enslave us.

The AVN has fought for you and your family for nearly 28 years. Now, we are asking you to join in the battle for your family and community!

Please click this link to read more about why this case needs to go ahead. Our terms and conditions can be found at this link.

For our children; for our parents; for our community; for our very souls – we will fight to win and never stop until we are ALL free to live, to breathe and to be healthy on our own terms.


Australian Vaccination-risks Network, Inc.
Conditions Applicable to Donations
1. Australian Vaccination-risks Network, Inc. (AVN) is seeking donations (AVN is not a charity) to meet the legal and related costs of proceedings to be issued in the Federal Court of Australia. A legal Opinion has already been obtained from a retired barrister, which has been reviewed by a former Justice of the Federal Court of Australia, and a world-famous Queen’s Counsel (QC), where both have deemed the legal grounds for Judicial Review solid, with one remarking the Opinion “well argued”. Nonetheless, for the purpose of getting ready to initiate legal proceedings, AVN will formally engage one or more barristers to act, which senior barrister(s) or QC will be requested to review one final time the Opinion and return their written views on the Opinion, whether they agree or disagree, together with their final Opinion with respect to prospects of success, and the manner of how the proposed Application should proceed.

2. The only option is recourse to the law, hence legal proceedings in the Federal Court. There is no guarantee of success, but people who are fighting, care, and where the law and evidence reviewed to date, indicate a real possibility of success.

3. The government has a lot more public money than AVN. We are the “David”, they are the “Goliath”.

4. Please note that your contribution will be a donation to the AVN Judicial Review Fund. Other than for AVN’s internal administration purposes, the name of a donor will not be made known or publicly released unless otherwise advised by the donor.

5. Your donation will be placed with all other donations in the trust account of Irish Bentley Lawyers

6. Any donations made via the Give Send Go platform will incur a 2.9% service fee plus 30 cents US per transaction that will be deducted from your donation. The balance after this deduction will be the amount received in the trust account, and is what your receipt will reflect.

7. The conduct of the Judicial Review Application has two separate phases:

First phase: a QC or senior barrister will provide an Opinion, first with respect to the legal opinion already rendered, then generally as to the merits of a challenge to the failures by the Australian Government in not having already cancelled or suspended the vaccines. He will also be asked to provide Advice on Evidence.

Second phase: once it is resolved that the proposed Application has merit, the Judicial Review will be prepared, filed, and served upon the appropriate parties within the Australian Government.

8. The AVN has already engaged Irish Bentley Lawyers, and is the Client instructing Irish Bentley Lawyers for the purposes of the First Phase, and hopefully the Second Phase described in 7 above. The AVN currently envisages (subject to any further legal advices it may receive), that only AVN will be the Applicant/party for the purposes of the  proposed Application described in 7 above, where the AVN hopes to have sufficient Standing before the Court representative of members aggrieved by the failures of the Australian Government in not having already cancelled or suspended the vaccines. The total amount of money that is estimated to be necessary for both phases is $300,000. AVN has already seeded this Fund Raising Campaign with AU$20,000.

9. Irish Bentley Lawyers will only pay over, transfer or disburse monies from that AVN Judicial Review Fund for invoiced legal (and related) costs, expert fees, and related expenses or disbursements that have been reasonably and properly incurred. In addition, minor amounts related to the costs of fundraising and related public and community meetings organised by AVN may be met, where such activities expressly concern the Application for Judicial Review.

10. If at the completion or cessation (for whatever reason) of the proceedings (which may include appellate proceedings) there are monies exceeding AU$5,000 remaining in the AVN Judicial Review Fund (i.e. surplus funds), donors who have contributed an amount greater than $500 may elect to receive a pro rata return from the surplus funds (i.e. their total donation as a proportion of the total funds raised). Any funds remaining after such pro rata return will be paid to AVN.

11. AVN is first and foremost a volunteer-run community group seeking to act with individuals and other community groups in the defence of our health, especially at this critical time where People across Australia and the Globe, are being coerced by government mandates and restrictions upon freedoms to get vaccinated.


The original text of this page has been edited in order to:

a) Further clarify the legal steps and advices received leading up to the engagement of instructing solicitors; and

b) In light of the present likelihood of the AVN to be the sole Client required for providing instructions for this matter, and the present perception that the AVN is a sufficiently representative body with respect to the issues anticipated to be the subject of judicial consideration, should the Application proceed, then only the AVN will need to be the Applicant for bringing the proposed Application (subject to any further legal advices). In this respect it was deemed necessary to reflect the developing circumstances and advices received to date, by modifying appropriately Condition 8, and deleting Condition 9.


The Court Case Will go ahead! BREAKING: AVN v. TGA Federal Court Update
January 6, 2022
facebook twitter

The Australian Vaccination-risks Network (AVN) is excited to announce that extensive exploratory work from our legal counsel has come back in favour of pursuing a Federal Court case against the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA). 

Senior Counsel engaged by AVN believes strongly in these proceedings and has set forth a comprehensive plan for achieving a successful outcome. Due to the time-sensitivity and urgency of this issue, the legal team is currently actioning final items of importance needed to bring the case properly before the Federal Court within January 2022.

Update #5
January 2, 2022

Happy New Year all! 

Just a very quick update to let you know that our application to the Federal Court was not filed when we expected it to be due to the engagement of a new senior counsel with a great deal of experience in that Court. This is good news for the case but it has meant that things have moved a bit slower than we might have liked due to the time needed (understandably!) for counsel to read the brief which is more than 800 pages long, get his head around it and be ready to advise the rest of our team about options, chances and ready the application.

Once this is all finalised, we expect to make an urgent application for a hearing and we will let you know for sure once that’s done.

Stage 1 of our 2-stage court process is drawing to a close. It’s only been a few weeks since we started but we have gathered together some of the best medical, legal, and activist minds in Australia and the world in this short space of time. Thank you to everyone who has helped with this appeal and if you haven’t yet given but would like to support our fight for freedom, now is a great time to do so!

Update #3-An update on the AVN’s Federal Court Judicial Review
December 16, 2021

We are pleased to announce that the AVN has retained the services of a new legal team, ably headed by Mr Peter Fam of Maat’s Method. Peter is 100% on-side regarding the issue of individual bodily integrity and the right to make free and informed health choices. He is being assisted by a large team including Mr Julian Gillespie (retired barrister), and a most capable and learned barrister of Wentworth We are pleased to announce that the AVN has retained the services of a new legal team, ably headed by Mr Peter Fam of Maat’s Method. Peter is 100% on-side regarding the issue of individual bodily integrity and the right to make free and informed health choices. He is being assisted by a large team including Mr Julian Gillespie (retired barrister), and a most capable and learned barrister of Wentworth Chambers, Sydney, who is leading the team through unique legal waters.

Today, we have given Mr Brendan Murphy, Secretary of the TGA, until the 24th of December, Christmas Eve, at 3 PM to respond to our notice of demand for him to withdraw or cancel the provisional approvals for all currently provisionally-approved COVID jabs. If not, we are prepared to take the TGA to the Federal Court to litigate the issue. Please see the files on this page of the AVN’s website.

Every week, 20 or more Australians are being reported as dying following administration of one of these jabs and thousands are injured. These reports represent only the very tip of the vaccine-harm iceberg hiding below the surface of official government statistics which are understated by 30-50 times.
It is time to make Mr Murphy and his compatriots finally do their job of protecting the health and wellbeing of Australians – especially after the recent approval of Pfizer jabs for children aged 5-11 years of age, due to start in January, 2022.

We are ready to move on this and expect to be filing with the court (pending a negative response from Mr Murphy and the TGA) before New Year’s Eve. Even if the regulators are afraid to act, as we have done for nearly 28 years, the AVN will be fearless in standing up for the rights and health of Australians of all ages in opposition to government overreach and mandated medical procedures.

Below is a link to a copy of the letter and attachments that were sent by email and post today.
Remember that we estimate the total costs necessary to complete this action to be in the area of $300,000 and we are only half-way there. If you are able to help support this and/or to share this page, we would be so grateful for your assistance.

Kind regards,

The AVN team

Mr Morris shall now commence work expeditiously on Phase One, soon to return a final Opinion, where we anticipate the filing of the Application soon after.

We are incredibly grateful for the involvement and support of so many interested donors and persons affected alike, for their ability to maintain this matter of compelling need requiring determination.

Update on amounts deducted from donations
November 20, 2021
facebook twitter

Many of you have expressed concern regarding the amounts apparently being deducted from your donations to this campaign. GiveSendGo support has gotten back to me and to those of you who have written directly to them as well. We here at the AVN really appreciate how quickly they've responded! 

Apparently, there is an issue that concerns exchanging US to AUD and that is being fixed right now, but rest assured your donations have only had the 2.9% credit card processing fees and the 30 cents US per donation deducted. See below for the full reply and thank you again for your amazing support!


Thanks for contacting GiveSendGo! My name is XXXXXXX. I'm happy to help you today!

We appreciate you sending that over. It appears our receipts are not converting the amount correctly to AUD. The amounts shown in your donor's receipts are in USD. I will send this over to our team to fix asap. Several of your donors have contacted us about this today and we have clarified the issue with them as well. 

Please let us know if you have any other questions.
