Fluoride Action Network

Over 85 groups join Worldwide Alliance

FAN Bulletin | April 1, 2014

Dear Supporter:

Before we get to the very exciting news about the enthusiastic response to our appeal for groups to join the Worldwide Alliance to End fluoridation, we start with a few other items.

1) We have some disappointing news from New Zealand. Sadly, the councilors in Hamilton, New Zealand voted to restart fluoridation.  The group Fluoride Free Hamilton has responded to the vote with a press release, and the vote may now be facing a judicial review.

2) Here is a link to a 30 minute interview on Pacifica Radio out of Berkeley, California featuring spokespersons from three of the groups in the Worldwide Alliance: Jay Sanders (Clean Water California), Arlene Goetze (Say No To Poison, Sunnyvale, California and Paul Connett (Fluoride Action Network).

The response to our bulletin requesting groups fighting fluoridation to join the Worldwide Alliance to End Fluoridation has been fantastic. We have had over 50 more groups from 12 countries join the Alliance since we sent out the announcement last week.

Below is the updated list of the Founding Member groups of the Worldwide Alliance to End Fluoridation. We are working on a separate list of individuals and businesses supporting the Alliance.  If your group has a website or Facebook page please email the links to stuart@fluoridealert.org.  We would like to include this information on the official alliance list that will soon be found at www.fluoridealert.org .

Thank you again to everyone who has signed on and for everything else you are all doing to end this unethical and reckless practice around the world.
