Informing Woolworths about the Law

A member of the Commonwealth of Australia recently wrote to Woolworths to inform them that they are acting unlawfully by imposing the State government Covid-19 mandates. This was their response:

This typical gobbledygook is designed to deflect responsibility away from the company in the hope that people will just accept that they are ‘concerned’ about your health.

Companies are not there to be concerned about our health, unless it is in relation to the products they are selling, which must be safe to consume.

This is the response sent to Lauren Hilton today, 15 February 2022:

Dear Lauren Hilton, it has come to my attention that you are responsible for imposing the unlawful, unconstitutional Covid mandates on all stores. This makes you directly accountable for any breaches of the law, as a result. 

The Constitution States:
Part V – Powers of the Parliament
51 Legislative powers of the Parliament

The Parliament shall, subject to this Constitution, have power to make laws for the peace, order, and good government of the Commonwealth with respect to:

“with respect to” means they can’t go outside those sections. In other words, NO State government/parliament can make laws outside the scope of the Federal Laws contained in the Constitution. 

In fact, Section 109 specifically states, “109. When a law of a State is inconsistent with a law of the Commonwealth, the latter shall prevail, and the former shall, to the extent of the inconsistency, be invalid.”

This means that no State may make laws that are inconsistent with the Constitutional federal law.
You can download and read the Constitution here:

In 1946 we, the Australian people, voted in a referendum to amend the Constitution Section 51 (xxiiiA) to allow the Parliament to provide, “the provision of maternity allowances, widows’ pensions, child endowment, unemployment, pharmaceutical, sickness and hospital benefits, medical and dental services (but not so as to authorize any form of civil conscription), benefits to students and family allowances;”

In other words, the Federal Parliament is responsible for providing dental and medical services, among others, but no government may force anyone to accept or use those services. The Covid mandates are forcing people, and that is a federal Crime.

The State governments have lied to the people about their ‘mandates’. A mandate is not a law. In fact, if you look in the Oxford dictionary, a mandate is what the people tell the government what they must do for us. We are the supreme authority, not the Parliament. 

Knowing this, you can be held liable and responsible for any harm or deprivation of rights of any person wishing to shop in your stores if your company refuses them entry, or tries to force them to obey the illegal, unconstitutional mandates. 

You have two choices, now that I have told you what the law states:

  1. Resign, because you know that the policy puts you into a very difficult position and you could be taken to court and face a very stiff penalty. You could, in fact, end up in prison as a result.
  2. Meet with your bosses and explain the law to them and tell them that they can no longer enforce any “Covid 19” mandates the State government tells them to.

The penalty for breaking the Federal Privacy Act 94H is up to 5 years imprisonment and/or a 300 Penalty point fine ($63,000).

This is the official government website that lists all Federal laws, and it links to the Section 94H I referred to:

 I am a Commonwealth Public Official (CPO), sworn to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, the Queen of the Commonwealth (not the fake Queen of Australia created by Bob Hawke).

I am writing to inform you of the law so that you may correct your behaviour and take steps to put a stop to your, and your company’s, illegal and unconstitutional behavior.

Please take this seriously, as people have had enough of the unlawful behaviour of the State governments and they are ready to take you and others imposing the mandates to court. 

Warm regards,
Mike Holt
