Worldwide Lyme Protest

A Note from Eva Haughie:

Dear New York Lyme Friends,

Perhaps the World Wide Lyme Community will be the “Tipping Point” where together we will make such an outcry that Lyme disease will cease to be the awful journey that it has been.

We are hoping to hear that at least some advocates and support group leaders can do a poster-photo-support – this is important and hopefully won’t take too much effort – I understand completely how little energy and time all our leaders have. Hopefully this effort will not be too taxing and the results will be worthwhile.

We have support groups across NY state. My thought is that maybe members can get together – at a meeting – or on a different date – to simply hold up posters saying
“Our town (name, NY) supports the 2014 World Wide Lyme Awareness Protest” (WWLAP)
And then take some photos and send them to Lisa Hilton, the USA World Wide organizer, ( lisahilton4@gmail.com ) or you can send them to me and I will forward the pictures to Lisa. These photos illustrating our support will be shared across the world.

What great togetherness and real community we can show by doing this!

So far there are two separate events on Long Island, one in Manorville and one in Great Neck. We don’t expect a lot of people to show up – it will be local people and we will be holding each rally for only 2 hours each. The Great Neck rally might even take less time.

In Syracuse, they are combining a pre-arranged event on May 19, with a poster photo op to show their support.

By doing small events in locations where we have support groups, we will be giving many people an opportunity to participate where they couldn’t have if there was only one or two major events in NY, as we did last year.

In addition, the number of advocates and patients who will be able support the second annual WWLAP may even turn out to be greater than the total attendance at the first annual events in Union Square in NYC and Albany combined.
Individuals, groups and organizations from across the US and the world will be holding rallies and gatherings from May 16-18, 2014 and indeed throughout all of May.

NEW ADDITIONS!

UPDATE: There will also be a Worldwide Poster event in Syracuse, NY, on May 19, 2014 as part of the Worldwide….More details coming soon!

It would be great to add your region in NY to our list of World Wide Rallies but if you cannot do this effort, I understand and please forgive me for asking.

As always, thanks for everything you do!
Eva

The Worldwide Lyme Protest Team would like to THANK Empire State Lyme Association for supporting the Worldwide Lyme Awareness efforts. I’m sure an extra big thank you on behalf of New York Lyme Patients is appropriate too!
