What's the talk about?

Attention all active skeptics! On Saturday 30th January at 9.45 AM there's going to be a meeting at the Radcliffe Camera, just outside St Mary's Church, from where we will go on to take an overdose of Boots Homeopathic Remedies at a nearby site.

This protest comes after a Boots representative, Paul Bennett, attracted ridicule from the national press after admitting to a parliamentary select committee last November that Boots sells homeopathic remedies to the public even though they have no evidence the ‘treatments’ work. It is our intention that such a protest, which will be taking place in 12 hubs in major cities throughout the UK, will demonstrate to people that homeopathy does not work beyond the placebo effect, and that consumers are wasting their money and risking their health. Please, visit http://www.1023.org.uk and add your name to the letter soon.

If you would like to take part in 'overdosing' then please email rosie.olliver@city-centre.net. Otherwise, please come along and support, help hand out leaflets and have fun.
