Anti-vaccination political party loses Domain Name.

In recent weeks a group of anti-vaccination campaigners have attempted to start their own political party called the Involuntary Medication Objectors Party whose goal is to undermine public health initiatives. 

Recent so called No Jab, No Play, No Pay laws discriminating against parents who choose not to vaccinate their children have far reaching effects for the basic freedoms that we have enjoyed.
We object to the our elected representatives making and supporting laws that use financial coercion to compel struggling, loving, caring parents to vaccinate their children with questionable medication.
The injustice of the recent No Jab, No Pay law has motivated us to form a political party that will aggressively agitate for rescission of this undemocratic law. -Involuntary Medication Objectors Party

This party is a response to the Abbot Government “No Jab, No Pay” laws which closed a loophole that people have been using to claim benefits they aren’t entitled to. Under this new law if parents want to claim a payment that has an immunisation criteria they must ensure that their children are vaccinated before they can receive the handout.

The party did have a website setup at IMOP.com.au until auDA the government organisation that administers the .au namespace received the following complaint.

The domain imop.com.au is registered to Misty Mountain Health and Institute Ltd, ABN 61097939672, so the domain name is clearly not (as required) an exact match, abbreviation or acronym of the registrant’s names:
* Better Life Productions
* Misty Mountain Health Retreat, or
* Misty Mountain Aboriginal Healing Place.

Given it is being used to host a political party’s web site, I fail to see how it’s being used for domain monetisation, or otherwise closely and substantially connected to the registrant under the rules for that use in the guidelines. -Complainant

The registry is now reporting status: pendingDelete (Client requested policy delete)

As we have seen in the past Anti-vaccination campaigners have a psychotic determination to undermine public health. I have no doubt they will return after this setback, and we will be waiting when they do. Every victory against the Anti-vaccination movement is a victory for public health, and we are winning this fight.
