Wexford Council passes motion to remove fluoride

Our two executive members, who are running a specialised legal information campaign with all councillors in the country, would like to congratulations all the members of Wexford Council who on Monday became the latest council to add their weight to the campaign to remove fluoride from our water.

All Wexford councillors present, across all parties, voted unanimously to support of the motion to end water fluoridation.

The list of councils passing this motion is now growing larger and will soon reach a critical mass that we hope will force the government to repeal the 1960 Act.

We have been in contact with every councillor in the country and we are expecting a number of other councils to table and pass motions in January and February. We will keep you all up to date with how the campaign evolves in the coming weeks.

    Great that these Councillors have voted for this but isn’t it a bit late seeing as they have given control of our water over to a private company so they have no real say in what happens to it even though they are our elected representatives and know we don’t want Irish Water any more than we want fluoride. Double standards again. Praise where it is due. Not here I’m afraid.

      They have the power to make by laws remember

        Also the power lies absolutely with the Irish Government. People … even water suppliers … can’t just stick whatever they want in the water. They must abide by the law – which currently tells them that, for fluoride at least, they must do it – “mandatory water fluoridation” – with the toxic waste chemicals which the government prescribes. The Irish Government itself must be the ultimate target of pressures and protests.

          There is no such thing as a mandatory regulation, they are obligatory only the difference is subtle but real. However in the case of fluoride it is not mandatory because to do so would be unlawful to the point of criminal as it breached basic human rights that were established at Nuremberg. he government know this so they worded the legislation in such a way that although it looks like an order it is actually a choice. Apparently we via the concils choose to add fluoride, so we can choose to take it out. I wrote on this if you search the site for fluoride you will find an entry about the legal campaign

            Reading the notes I can understand why you say there is no mandatory fluoridation in Ireland. Personally I think this is a very reasonably arguably case. But – in practice at least and de facto – it is mandatory whilst everybody involved thinks it is mandatory. Needing either clarification in case law or Government legislation. I can’t imagine the Councils being able to order the water suppliers to end it without that clarification.

            You have it bang on. that is exactly how they have been thinking. However critical mass may get us over the line in the end

    You got me thinking about what makes a person “extremist”. Take myself – non-violent, never been in trouble with the law, not a single point on my 42 year old drivers licence, always trying to help my fellow man regardless of their beliefs. Yet here you are calling me “extremist”? Apparently because I had the temerity to help somebody who was being treated unjustly and who was a BNP candidate?

    Such fear, sneer and smear denunciations worry me. Many millions of such “miscreants” were similarly denounced by the likes of yourself, to be brutally murdered, disappeared or sent to their deaths in Siberian labour camps under “Uncle Stalin” who was of course a very non-extremist, nice type of politician in his day (lovely smile don’t you think?) typical of the loveable, friendly, middle-of-the-road politicians who currently control our lives (and put fluoride in our water!). And anybody that opposes them? “Free speech” outside the box? Well those people must be nasty fascists, terrorists and anarchists (oh … and let’s not forget … “extremists”) – and other similar phrases of accusative abuse. They deserve to be rounded up and “dealt with” by security forces in order to keep us all safe and cosy in our little cages where we may have free speech … just so long as it agrees with what we are supposed to think.

    That William is where your type of thinking gets us. Your unpleasant posts here (and I’m betting you do this on many other forums too) says far more about yourself than about me. I’m thinking Admin may be right – you are a troll.

    Thank you, Admin. It’s a shame about William, but if a person’s main argument is to constantly try to denigrate an opponent then he must have a very weak argument. And I do believe any argument for fluoride is very weak. Sometimes – without them realising it – something comes out in the news that shows just how useless fluoride is for children’s teeth. Here, the West Midlands and Birmingham have suffered fluoridation ever since 1964 – and this article from the Coventry Evening Telegraph highlights (without mentioning fluoride) just how useless (even harmful?) fluoridation has been.

    I know most people concede that fluoride may have some beneficial effect topically. But from the evidence I’ve seen it only works topically because it IS so poisonous (ie – kills the bacteria on the tooth surfaces) and fluoride toothpaste needs to be completely washed and spit out. But the other effect of fluoride is to leech calcium from the teeth (esp. in growing children), mottle tooth surfaces and leave them open to infection.

    I’m grateful to all the Irish campaigners and the important work they are doing – county by county! Brilliant! However, I would say one thing, I can’t help but observe that generally politicians do whatever is convenient. Hopefully your Irish ones are different? But I’d keep on top of them until the whole fluoridation thing is once and for all stopped.
