Freedom from Fluoride in Melbourne

fluoridemelbourne

The growing Geelong anti-fluoridation campaign took to the steps of Parliament on Wednesday in order to strengthen the broader campaign, along with fellow groups throughout Victoria. The Barwon Freedom from Fluoridation organisation also presented an open letter to the Minister for Health, Daniel Andrews, demanding the immediate end to fluoridation in the whole of Victoria. The protest was over 100 strong at it’s height and included concerned individuals from Geelong, Melbourne, Castlemaine and various other parts of Victoria. Opposition to fluoridation is definitely not just a small issue hidden away in Geelong, many Victorians are angry that they have not been consulted, let alone given active consent.

National-Anarchists attended the event, taking video footage and distributing informative pamphlets to other protestors and passers by. It is a disturbing reality that since the beginning of this fluoridation campaign, National-Anarchists have been the only radical political movement to become involved and express support against such an attack on democratic and civil freedoms. There has been no support from the wider Anarchist movement, no other Nationalist involvement, the closest to broader political co-operation has been individual Greens members, a Democratic Labor Party MP and individual trade unionists. How can we truly confront the problem of “representative” democracy is we will only co-operate on the really big issues. Fluoridation is an issue that affects people in their local communities, directly in their homes, it touches them much more closely and critically than global capitalism or climate change.

Besides of the let down from fellow anti-establishment activists, the rally was largely succesful. Victorian National-Anarchists have continued to network with people from across the state, also conducting an interview with a popular YouTube journalist. The broader campaign against fluoridation has been let down by the complete lack of mainstream media attention but what more can we expect, the media has no intention of covering real issues – we have the means, we need to make our own media!

Our video of the days events is here, there will be more news on the forced fluoridation issue as it develops.

UNITED! FOR AN ANARCHIST FUTURE!

Melbourne Fluoride Rally

MelbFluorideThe Victorian National-Anarchists will be attending this rally and we encourage everybody to join us. We will be distributing Issue #1 of the new N-A Zine and other leaflets about fluoridation from a National-Anarchist perspective.

We hope to see a strong presence of radical activists at this protest, fluoride is just one aspect of the much larger anti-establishment campaign and is a good issue for showing the public just how false the concept of “representative democracy” really is.

We hope to see you there!
