Meer over de petities - al veel handtekeningen!

Dear friend and supporter of natural medicine,

Thanks to your action, we have already gathered no less than 1 284 269 signatures to our petition against the new European THMPD (Traditionnal Herbal Medicinal Product Directive), and in support of the legislative action being undertaken by the Alliance for Natural Health.
This is a success of historical significance.
Sunday, the 1st of May 2011, at 12 o'clock GMT, we had :
954 145 signatures to our petition in French ;
233 113 to our petition in English ;
97 011 to our petition in German.
Furthermore, the powerful citizen network action group Avaaz, just launched a huge effort similar to ours, calling the European Commission and EU Governments « to amend the THMPD Directive, suspending the draconian measures against herbal medicines and removing all barriers to traditional remedies with a long history of use inside and outside Europe. »

« We have a right to choose among all remedies and medicines that can keep ourselves and our families healthy », say Avaaz members, echoing our call to the European Authorities.
Avaaz has already gathered 469 000 signatures, making it a very significant participant to the movement against the THMPD.
There is no doubt that the size and strength of the movement we have created is going to force the European Union to back down on its outrageous attempt to limit our rights and freedom to choose natural medicine and remedies.
Augustin de Livois and our team in Brussels and Paris are presently taking steps to meet representatives and decision-makers. We will soon be able to announce what kind of concrete changes we managed to reach.
In the meantime, you can keep asking your friends to connect on to get more signatures.
Thank you very much for your support,
To your good health,
The League for Natural Medicine
