Lobbying the new Federal Government on MCS
Friday 14 December 2007
Dorothy Bowes, President of the Allergy Sensitivity and Environmental Health Association of Qld, has commenced a letter writing campaign to lobby the new federal Labor government for recognition of MCS and completion of the promised review of MCS by theOffice of Chemical Safety.
We all know the very serious problems that people with MCS face when trying to access basic services that most Australians take for granted. Several months ago in Queensland a very elderly woman with severe MCS was subjected to intolerable chemical exposures at her local public hospital, where she died still begging hospital staff for a breath of fresh air. The Queesland MCS community has been devastated by this incident, which is not an isolated one. If you suffer from MCS and do nothing to alert our politicians to the problems we face it may only be a matter of time before this kind of abuse happens to you.
Please show your support for recognition of MCS by sending the form letter to the new Prime Minister Kevin Rudd (pictured). If you don’t like the content of the letter please feel free to alter the text to reflect your own circumstances and opinions.
