BARWON Freedom from Fluoridation will launch a community “mandate” to stop fluoridation tonight at Skilled Stadium.

The group is aiming to collect thousands of signatures, with full contact details, for its “mandate”, which will be sent to the State Parliament.

The “mandate” calls on the parliament to stop all fluoridation of any water supply within the Barwon Water District and to prohibit the implementation of the Health (Fluoridation) Act 1973 within the Barwon Water District by any entity.

BAFF spokesman David McRae said the State Government did not have a mandate to introduce fluoride.

He said the group used the term mandate because it was different to a petition. The people had sovereignty over the parliament and the politicians were meant to serve the people.

The launch will be addressed by leading Adelaide dentist and a past Australian Dental Association president Dr Andrew Harms.

BAFF said Dr Harms would speak on the scientific evidence for fluoride health damage, and the fraudulent way authorities claimed dental health benefits.

The launch is at 7.30pm in the Fred Flanagan Room, Skilled Stadium.
