"I don't want to minimize how difficult the situation is, especially for people who are being forced to choose between their jobs of many years and taking a jab that they don't want. People are being put in an odious, coercive [and] wrongful situation," says Holland during "The Robert Scott Bell Show" on Brighteon.TV.
Host Robert Scott Bell shows a video of Holland's speech during CHD's NYC-Broadway Rally for Freedom last Oct. 16 at Times Square in New York City.
"We are gaining, so let's keep in the forefront of our minds where we are going. We are going to a world with no medical mandates. Individuals and families make their own medical decisions with their own trusted advisors. We're going to a world with no segregation [and] no vaccine passports. We're going to a world where school districts listen to parents' concerns about their children's education and their children's health," Holland says.
An Oct. 18 Epoch Times report said CHD founder Robert F. Kennedy was also present at the event and spoke before thousands of attendees. "There is no pandemic exception to the Constitution and the Bill of Rights," he says.
Holland thinks the people are beginning to realize that they need to make a stand if they want to have full control of their lives moving forward.
"When you look at the level of resistance that's happening in the U.S., all of those things are really, really good news," the CHD president says. "We have to understand that the momentum is on our side and that's why they keep applying more and more coercion, but it won't last."

Holland cites in particular the efforts of Southwest Airlines employees to pressure the company's CEO to reverse his stance on vaccine mandates.
Southwest Airlines CEO Gary Kelly says he opposes mandatory COVID-19 injections for employees. "I've never been in favor of corporations imposing that kind of a mandate," he says, pointing his finger at the federal government.
Holland said during the Oct. 16 NYC event: "[We're] going to a world where the legislatures – not misguided mayors or governors – make the decisions. The people's representatives [should] make decisions about things that affect us all."
The CHD president points out that officials under the executive branch are behind vaccine mandates instead of legislators who represent the people.
"One of the thing that's we've seen during this pandemic worldwide is that none of these restrictions are coming from the legislatures. They're not coming from city council, state legislatures and the [federal] legislature," she says. (Related: Dr. David Martin: Biden's vaccine mandates mean nothing.)
According to Holland, these "incredibly anti-democratic" mandates come from officials under the executive branch. "They're coming from presidential edicts, governor's edicts and mayor's edicts. [They are also] coming from public health officers, the county executive or the mayor. They are not coming from the legislatures," she says.
Holland mentions an article by the National Vaccine Information Center (NVIC), which was republished in CHD's newsletter the Defender. "No state legislatures passed bills with COVID-19 mandates. The only COVID-19 vaccine mandates enacted so far were created by private employers, state governors and state or local officials," it notes.
In fact, the NVIC article states that majority of lawmakers in state legislatures across the U.S. were against vaccine mandates. It elaborates: "Out of the 30 passed bills [by state legislatures] that contained COVID-19 related measures, 29 were bills that had positive elements that protected vaccine informed consent rights. Twenty states have passed some form of protective language from COVID-19 vaccine mandates or vaccine passports in some capacity."
The article further points out: "Enlightened legislators are not only listening to concerned constituents in greater numbers, but many more are continuing or beginning to resist aggressive lobbying efforts by the vaccine industry."
"People do have a lot more common sense than individual executives who often really love power. We're dealing with power-grabbing authoritarians," Holland says. Bell agrees with her, adding that "we're dealing with pure authoritarianism."
