Two public protests will take place in West Cork in January as part of the West Cork Fluoride Free Campaign. The first protest will be held on The Fair Green in Macroom on Saturday, January 18 followed by one at Emmet Square in Clonakilty Town on Sunday, January 19. Both protests are at 1pm.

These events represent a significant development, as part of the West Cork Fluoride Free Campaign, whose mission is to have West Cork declared Ireland’s first Fluoride Free region assisted by six West Cork Towns serving clean, safe and healthy Fluoride Free water to the Public. The other objective of the campaign is to increase public backing for ‘The Girl Against Fluoride’ nationwide awareness campaign who’s team have brought awareness of the health risks posed to the public through the ingestion of fluoride to the whole country including the heart of the Government whose team made a presentation to Dail Eireann in 2013. This team in 2014 will also be initiating legal proceedings against the Irish State on behalf of the Irish people to have Ireland’s mandatory water fluoridation policy reversed.

Both of the upcoming public protests in Clonakilty and Macroom have huge local support and public endorsement from each of their respective town councils who in 2013 unanimously voted calling for the immediate cessation of water fluoridation in Ireland. The Campaign to end Water Fluoridation in Ireland also enjoys huge national support as well as backing from dozens of other cross party political representatives in West Cork and around the country.

Both events will also have public addresses delivered by a local Town Councillor and Aisling Fitzgibbon, AKA ‘The Girl Against Fluoride’.

People in the Macroom and Clonakilty areas are asked to come out and support these local West Cork Fluoride Free Events. Those around the country wishing to actively support the campaign to end Ireland’s mandatory water fluoridation policy can purchase ‘The Girl Against Fluoride’ naked calendar 2014 at www.thegirlagainstfluoride.com, all proceeds from which go directly towards funding the upcoming legal case being taken on behalf of the Irish People to have the mandatory water fluoridation policy reversed.
