National Chemical Injury and Sensitivity Day Rally – September 20

September 7, 2006

Parliament HouseThe annual rally recognising National Chemical Injury and Sensitivity Day will be held on September 20 at Parliament House steps beginning 12 midday.

The rally will acknowledge the progress being made in South Australia in recognising the needs of people with multiple chemical sensitivity including:

  • MCS included in the Disability Action Plan for state government buildings.
  • MCS included in the Disability Action Plan for Adelaide City Council.
  • The Department of Health and Ageing soon to convene an MCS Reference Group to:
    • inform the on-going debate on MCS;
    • develop consistent hospital protocols for patients with MCS; and.
    • implement herbicide No-Spray Registers with local Councils.

The process of lobbying for recognition of MCS in South Australia has not always been a smooth one. But the efforts of everyone involved in bringing MCS to the attention of government authorities are starting to bear fruit. There is still a great deal more work to be done but the first steps have been taken and there is now no going back.

Join us at the rally on September 20 in support of the many thousands of people with MCS who are unable to attend due to chronic illness and environmental sensitivities.

Fliers for the event can be downloaded here:

Following the rally the Hon Andrew Evans, MLC, will give a short speech on MCS in the Legislative Council at some time between 3:30pm and 4pm.
