VCJD campaigners protest at Number 10, in London

Hot Topics London, United Kingdom - 04 May 2010
"A group of campaigners who have been fighting for the government to release information on the extent of the spread of vCJD gathered at Number 10 in London on May 4, 2010, to protest as vCJD continues to claim victims over 10 years after meat products have been branded safe", our contributor says.

"The families of victims of vCJD gathered alongside campaigner Graham Bell, who was arrested last December. According to Mr Bell, a local MP of his constituency was offered vCJD feed 6 years after it was banned as well as information about vCJD having been suppressed from the public."

"Mr Bell claimed that he obtained evidence of banned feed and of infected meat products still circulating the market, as well as companies that produce such products operating above the law, which led to his arrest."

"Another campaigner, Anthony Seaton, whose mother died of vCJD claimed that he struggled to obtain his mother's death certificate who was initially and wrongfully diagnosed as having had a stroke. Mr Seaton claimed that a committee had to congregate to decide upon the release of his mother's death certificate. The campaigners also highlighted the danger of vCJD infection by blood transfusion as screening is still insuficient and ineffective."

"The campaigners then moved on to Parliament Square to protest in front of Parliament." .
