Senseless Irony: ‘Silenced’ Has Been Silenced

In a rather ironic twist, the recently released, beautifully filmed New Zealand documentary ‘Silenced’, about the censorship of important voices, has itself been censored by the platform Vimeo. We shared the documentary on 10 April 2023.

Samantha Blanchard’s film Silenced featuring broadcaster Peter Williams, former GP and NZDSOS member Dr Anne O’Reilly and sociologist Jodie Bruning was removed from the platform on 12 April 2023 just days after it was released.

Why Did Vimeo Silence ‘Silenced’?

This is what the letter from Vimeo said:

Hello Samantha,

I’ve refunded the amount of your purchase.  Please allow 10 business days for the refund to appear on your billing statement.

Your account was terminated for violating Vimeo’s Terms of Service ( and Community Guidelines (

We do not allow health-related content that might cause people to take dangerous or unproven treatments or refrain from taking indicated precautions or treatments that the U.S Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) or World Health Organization (WHO) recommend.  We also do not allow claims that an epidemic or pandemic (such as COVID-19) are conspiracies.

Specifically, Vimeo does not allow videos that:

  • Conveys false or misleading health-related information that has a serious potential to cause public harm
  • Perpetuates false or misleading claims about vaccine safety
  • Claims that the Coronavirus is a hoax or promotes various other conspiracy theories around the virus

This list is not exhaustive and we reserve the right to remove any content that we believe is harmful in order to protect the safety of our community.

We are unable to restore accounts that have been terminated for this kind of violation.  As this is our final decision, we will be unable to respond further.

We wish you the best of luck in finding a hosting platform better suited to your needs.


What sort of world and country are we living in that goes along with this sort of nonsense – in the true meaning of the word – non sense.  It doesn’t make any sense to censor and silence the voices of sensible, intelligent, articulate, ordinary New Zealanders. Moreover, Silenced was a documentary about censorship. It did not purport to be “health-related information”.

Do we really need ‘Community Guidelines’ that are surely concocted by the pharmaceutical industry to enhance their product sales and eliminate the competition?

The Pfizer vaccine is a ‘dangerous and unproven treatment’ yet there are multiple platforms still promoting it.

Those pushing the agenda are obviously terrified of free speech.  They know that people recognise the truth in their hearts when they hear it.  There can be no room for debate and discussion if you know that truth and science are not on your side.  The only option when truth is not with you is to silence dissenting voices.

We must all keep speaking the truth.

  1. Thankyou for all the great work youre doing.
    We bang into these people whove taken the poison juice every time we interact with a govt or private entity nowadays. Its almost as if theres an ‘idiot’ portion deliberately hidden in the vaxx.
    How can we trust anyone who didnt have enough ‘nouse’ to say no to a vaxx for a flu with a 99.97% recovery rate.
    Now many of them appear to be mentally challenged and are still in the same jobs they were in before they became mentally challenged. Its become quite a dangerous situation.
    Imagine a vaxxed mentally impaired psychiatrist trying to assess the mental impairment of another vaxxed mentally impaired medical professional – while both being too mentally impaired to realise theyre too mentally impaired to do this ethically or honestly.
    I reckon its time for all the vaxxed medical professionals and educators to be stood down and replaced with those who are unvaxxed – to keep us all safe.

  2. Unbelievable how the same old narrative plays out. No room for debate or raising tricky questions. NZ used to be known for it’s honest politicians. . Now we are all the same. So sad.

  4. Greetings to You All ,

    I wanted to tell you all that at our ANZAC dawn pde the end anyone had a chance to.lay a wreath .
    Id picked my own flowers and stood infront of the cenotaph
    And said ,
    ” my flowers from my own garden are to remember the living those from our forces who have lost their careers, both men and women in our Forces and the police .”

    Sincerely Robert mclean

  5. They are devoid of intelligence + they are the ones promoting dishonest, incorrect information!

  6. Obviously not
    No fines
    No arrests
    No prison time for peaceful protests
    That’s the central core of a democracy

  7. I’m gobsmacked! I shared “Silenced” with many friends. It was a brilliant piece of Journalism, people just telling it as it was.

  8. The “sliencers” will one day be deafened by the “truth” and there will be no rock they can crawl under to hide.

  9. Keep going all of us. They are going down. When they can’t talk they are losing cos they know they are wrong

  10. The WHO is not to be trusted. It is a political organization masquerading as a health champion.

  11. Greetings and many’s blessings to you all for your work in this time. Where then may we see the movie Silenced?

  12. Oh the censorship is only just beginning. For example a National party MP told me that they cannot reply to any E-mail correspondence without digital I.D. All governments are pushing a universal digital I.D. without which the much wanted CBDC cannot be fully implemented.
    The ‘drivers licenses’ in NZ are illegal because one thing was ratified by parliament,(illegally breaking a contract),and another implemented. Kiwis just rolled over and took it.
    Most people are stupid, ignorant, lazy and apathetic and politicians and the bureaucratic vermin in the IPU know it : – Yes NZ is run by them as well.
    It is all about control, these now being forced ’15 minute cities’ are another example.
    Even platforms such as Bitchute,(where ‘Silenced’ is still available),are censored on certain subjects.
    3C’s ‘Christchurch Call’ legislation is bring used world-wide in the West now.
    People need to be very careful how they vote, if that even matters now.

    I.R.T.C. – I Refuse To Comply. It needs to be a mindset and a lifestyle.

  13. Is Vimeo, Like Covid an acronym for something else, perhaps it starts with Vermin???

  14. Interesting that the entity that holds such honourable position, is the entity that is actually acting against their own principles by circulating and prompting known dangerous products

  15. The only rationale for removing the video is that it is factual and is exposing corruption. The corruption had been, and is still being carried out by New Zealand government.

  16. Can we have the email address for ‘Dustbin’ so we can email him/it/she/thee/them/they/ze our displeasure at this atrocity?
