In fact, so great has been the response to the launch of this party in the US that the founders have been ovewhelmed:
We were not quite prepared for the response we got to the announcement of our party! We are so excited that so many are ready to work for integrity in medicine. Please be patient with us as we gear up for this new effort, and we will contact you soon!
So while waiting for them to catch up with themselves, you might want to find out a bit more – like, who are they?
We are a group of citizens who are disturbed by the increasingly failing health of those in our society. Among us are those who have been injured by the medical industry, those with children or loved ones who have been harmed and killed by the medical industry, medical professionals who are upset with what is happening in their field and those who endeavor to preserve human health in spite of increasingly corrupt and failing medical establishment.
In 2010, a group of parents of children who were suffering from neurological and autoimmune disorders, and who had been active for years in their efforts to get mainstream medicine to address the causes of, and find treatments for, their children’s poor health, faced the realization that ……… the medical establishment was not working in good faith with them. They decided that if anything was to be done about the epidemic levels of childhood chronic illness in the US, it would have to be a result of real political pressure to clean up the corruption in the medical establishment that was allowing bad pharmaceuticals, bad medical practices and bad public health policy to assault human health on such a wide scale.
……In the spring of 2011, it became clear that waiting to do something was no longer an option…….. It was time to stop asking the medical establishment to pay attention to the epidemic of illness, and demand that they do, or replace them with their betters who would. And so The Canary Party was born.
As UK citizens we cannot, obviously, take much active part in this movement but we may learn much from their effort and their progress that could be put to good use back home. Watch that yellow space….
