#92~ ME Blood Ban Protest+UK "Policy Change NOW"

A LOT is happening in the UK right now..

Location: Department of Health, Richmond House, Whitehall, London SW1
Time: 12:30PM Monday, November 1st

UK "Policy CHANGE NOW" campaign.
Worldwide Participation Encouraged !

Officially starting TODAY the UK is Banning ALL blood donations from patients that have been diagnosed with M.E. (while they STILL tell them that it's ALL in their Heads and that CBT 'Cognitive Behavioral Therapy' is the Best Treatment) RED Alert.. "Bull-S*^# Alert"...

There are Blood Ban Demonstrations taking place all over the UK.
The largest one is in London, while others are taking place in other towns
near their local Red Cross or Town Square, near radio stations, etc..
So far this morning there are 40 in attendance at the London location
while this is early..MORE are expected SOON.

There has been a TV interview and a radio broadcast (that can be rePlayed HERE) with many ME Callers .... "Esther Rantzen talks to Dr. Charles Shepherd the medical advisor to the ME Association and finds out why ME sufferers will no longer be able to donate blood in the UK under new safety guidelines." and one of our very own "Vikki ♥ Walker" and she "STANDS UP to the BS" they Handed her about the "ME 80% Cure Rate" BRAVO♥Ms. Vikki ~ and others also ...

In the UK the ME patients are FORCED to these kinds of Actions to Help INFORM the Public because of the Governments "Lack of Transparency" with Regards to Public Health Issues.

There is an official Government 'inside' notice called a DA Notice which was set up by the MOD - it's an official request to news editors not to publish or broadcast items on specified subjects for reasons of national security. This extends to issues of public safety such as blood supply threats and pandemics.

They have made signs they are placing ALL OVER THE PLACE to inform the Public.


The First Photos from the UK Demonstration are slowly coming out...
Here is our own Paul Gray "Standing UP for ME"♥
Paul says that many more pics will be coming later...

Paul says "Met some real pro-active people today and saw some... real courageous sufferers."

When Paul did this interview below "He was TOLD he could NOT mention XMRV."

Actual mention of the word XMRV/MULV not yet approved by UK government's Department of Health (DOH) for political reasons. Consequently the discovery of XMRV/MULV is referred to as 'the virus'. Why?

ME/CFS is treated as a mental illness in the UK and people are told to alter their mind and alleged faulty illness beliefs with CBT and exercise. Yet since 1969, the World Health Organization (WHO) has classified ME as a disease of the brain - ICD:10 - G93.3.

More news + reports + pics will be coming later. ♥♥♥ Good Job everyone ♥♥♥ 

 More pics that have come in and are posted HERE

XMRV is a "RETROVIRUS" not simply "a virus" = HUGE DIFFERENCE !!!

Thanks Ms. Vikki for handing your blog over to  Sarah as she reports on HER Action in Glasgow, Scotland HERE.

Thanks to the Organizers all of you Everywhere!

(until Nov. 12th, 2010) 




For over 25 years, all evidence of viral infections and immune abnormalities in M.E patients has been suppressed. Ignored. Buried.

Instead, the Government shut the files away in a secret Medical Research Council vault, locked for over 70 years, and listened to a group of unconventional psychiatrists, authorizing them to control policy for patients.


In 1991 a researcher at the University of Pennsylvania discovered a brand new retrovirus in the blood of M.E patients. This information was deliberately buried for 18 YEARS until in 2009 the retrovirus XMRV was uncovered by the Whittemore Peterson Institute in 67% of M.E/CFS patients.

Further evidence of Murine Leukemia Viruses in 86.5% of M.E/CFS patients was confirmed by the US agencies Food and Drug Administration and National Institutes of Health in August 2010.

The Department of Health has BANNED the donation of blood in M.E patients from 1st November –stating it “as precaution to protect the donor's safety by ensuring their condition is not made worse by donating blood" and that “there are no plans to screen already stored blood (Anne Milton Minister for Public Health, October 2010).


The current treatment guidelines for M.E were developed by a steering group dominated by psychiatrists, who state of M.E patients:

“Those who cannot be fitted into a scheme of objective bodily illness yet refuse to be placed into and accept the stigma of mental illness remain the undeserving sick of our society and health service”.

Most M.E treatment centers are funded by mental health authorities within primary care trusts and placed within mental health units of hospitals and headed up by psychiatrists.

We are not mentally ill. We are sick.

Not only is XMRV prevalent in our blood, researchers have also found immune system abnormalities and EIGHT infectious subtypes of M.E. Antiviral trials have been a success in America yet these drugs are banned under the NICE Guidelines in the UK.


The US NIH has recruited top pathogen hunter Dr Ian Lipkin to carry out further XMRV research.

The UK authorities state “no public health action is required at this time.”

It seems the UK Government is quite happy for this cancer-causing retrovirus to be infecting the blood supply; already it is estimated that between 3% and 7% of the healthy blood supply is infected and cancer has increased by 4% annually since 2008.

M.E/CFS patient community, sufferers, family members and friends - it’s time to join together once again and demand policy change in the UK!!

The “UK POLICY CHANGE: NOW” campaign has just four simple steps or AIMs and taking part in our campaign is easy:

1. Address your email
2. Inform the campaign: Bcc:
3. Message: copy and paste our message
4. Start over: repeat these actions once each day.

Sample message: (adjust as necessary)

Dear …...,

"Stop allowing policy to support the refuted psychiatric model of ME/CFS, which presumes that ME/CFS has no organic basis and is therefore contradictory to current science and research on XMRV and other viruses. Pledge to make a definitive policy change NOW. Patients and their families are waiting."
