On Thursday November 21, Byron Shire Council will have a public meeting and vote on the issue of fluoridation. This public meeting will reveal whether some councillors will vote to medicate the people of our shire without consent, therefore putting themselves above the European Court of Justice decision of 9 June 2oo5: ‘Fluoridated water must be treated as a medicine and can not be used to prepare foods’.
Council will decide if our shire will join the minority of the mere five per cent of the world population (half of those being US citizens) who are still putting a ‘toxic waste product’ in their drinking water. While more and more councils decide to stop this madness, our shire is at risk of becoming a very sick place.
All concerned people will meet at 8.15am on Thursday 21 November outside Council Chambers, Mullumbimby, with their anti-fluoride posters to voice their opinion and greet our councillors before we attend the council meeting.
