WAKEFIELD ON TODAY SHOW - MAY 24
Supporters To Gather Outside NBC Studios at 8:00 a.m.
Please join Dr. Andrew Wakefield in a show of support on Monday, May 24 at 8 am at 30 Rockefeller Center (30 Rock) in New York, NY in front of the NBC Studios on 49th St. between 5th and 6th Ave. Shortly after 8 am, Wakefield will be interviewed by Matt Lauer on the Today show. Immediately following the Lauer interview Wakefield will rejoin our gathering outside the studio, hopefully for further media interviews. Your attendance is requested; please bring signs supporting Dr. Wakefield.
Dr. Wakefield believes the General Medical Council in Britain will issue a decision that morning that will deprive Dr. Wakefield of his ability to practice medicine in the UK. The decision will be the culmination of a four-year show trial in the UK of Wakefield and two of his colleagues, Dr. Simon Murch and Dr. John Walker Smith, who have been prosecuted for trumped up charges to punish them for a 1998 paper that suggested a possible connection between autism, bowel disease and the measles, mumps rubella vaccine.
The significance of their finding has been overshadowed by a concerted systematic effort to discredit the work and the researchers. This effort and an intense desire to subvert the inquiry into the issues of vaccine safety, and legal redress for vaccine damage, has culminated in the longest running and most expensive fitness to practice case ever in the UK, and serves as a totalitarian warning to other researchers who might consider questioning vaccine safety
