Young children are being exploited as ‘anti-vaxxer influencers’ to promote dangerous conspiracy theories.
Pupils denouncing the jab as ‘poison’ are appearing at demonstrations across the country as well as starring in online propaganda videos parroting their parents’ crackpot claims.
One ten-year-old has spoken at a string of anti-vax rallies – sometimes as the warm-up act for Jeremy Corbyn’s brother Piers – where she is hailed as a ‘child advocate’ and ‘future female warrior’.
Reading from a script with her father close by, the youngster claims Covid was a ‘fake pandemic’, that the vaccine contains a virus and anyone double-jabbed has a maximum life expectancy of five years. It causes infertility for 80 percent of women and girls, she claims.

Elsewhere, toddlers are being filmed for promotional films in which they are urged by adults to chant ‘no vaccine’ and ‘save our children’.
An anti-vaxxer group that targets schools across the UK using online footage has also been promoted, as exposed by The Daily Mail last week.
Medical experts have branded their claims ‘absolute nonsense’ and said using children to spread the falsehoods was ‘immoral’.
These revelations are made amid increasing concerns over anti-vaxxers spreading dangerous lies to schools and targeting schools.
In an event in Bristol in late October, a then-ten-year-old schoolgirl branded the jabs ‘kill shots’ and claimed: ‘Many people have simply dropped dead immediately after a vaccination.’
The schoolgirl insisted the pandemic never existed: ‘In 2020 all the deaths and all the case numbers were fake. Television showed that all hospitals in the world had been closed. They locked us down simply so we didn’t look outside.’

She told teenagers the vaccine was a ‘poison’ that would ensure they die at a ‘young age’, and added: ‘It has been said by many world experts that if you are double jabbed your life expectancy is three to five years.’
Francesca Dill, an ex-school governor and founder of Outreach Worldwide (an anti-vax organization that has been targeted in more than 100 schools across the country), addressed the Bristol rally.
Just last week supporters held an ‘outreach’ in Edmonton, north London. The group confronted hundreds of students as they made their journey home from school. Leaflets were given to them urging them against the injections.
The leaflets contained gross distortions of the number of deaths from the vaccine and falsely suggested children were being used as an ‘experiment’.
Outreach Worldwide promoted the ten-year-old’s speech online, describing her as ‘a courageous and gifted child’.
The ‘child advocate’ also spoke at a rally in Stroud, Gloucestershire, ahead of the notorious Covid conspiracy theorist Piers Corbyn.
Videos of the event posted online show her leading the crowd in a chant of his slogan, ‘Resist, defy, do not comply’.
She goes on to say: ‘They call it [the vaccine]It is not your choice, it is forced upon you. Soon, if you don’t have it, they will starve you to death by removing you from society and access to shops.’

Her false statements echo those on the Facebook page of her hypnotherapist father Ian Spence, 61, who has posted that there is a ‘vaccination holocaust happening now’, ‘thousands of children are about to die’ because of the jab, and that coronavirus is a ‘hoax’.
Other children were filmed for anti-vax propaganda at the ‘children’s freedom march’ organised by a former firefighter opposed to lockdown and Covid jabs.
A sinister online video of the event shows giggling toddlers being coaxed into saying ‘no vaccine’ and ‘save our children’ through loudhailers.
Other people stand next to the organiser, who is holding the speaker. They quote Dr Martin Luther King as well and call for an end of lockdowns.
Paul Hunter, professor of medicine at the University of East Anglia, said: ‘The fact is vaccines have saved many hundreds of thousands of lives around the world and will continue to do that. Most of the claims I’ve heard from these anti-vax groups… are absolute nonsense. This is a very moral way to abuse children.
‘There is a debate about vaccinating children but this has to be based on the science not conspiracies.’ Labour’s former schools spokesman Peter Kyle said: ‘Using children to propagate dangerous misinformation is a new low.
‘It illustrates the depths some have sunk. We need a fundamental think about safeguarding children both in schools but sadly in some cases in families too.’
The vaccine was responsible for only nine deaths in England or Wales, according to recent data from the Office for National Statistics.
Mr Spence said he and his daughter had been ‘studying’ Covid. ‘She’s been with me all the way through that research and if you said to her I’m exploiting her she’d say you’re talking rubbish,’ he said.
He described himself as ‘anti Covid-19 vaccine’ rather than anti all vaccines and vowed he would never willingly get the jab – although be believed there would soon be attempts to force people to have it.
