  • "2009 Stimulus Money Used For Nanny-State Lobbying and Propaganda.

    There are many that just don’t get it still. The current
    antismoking crusade is much like previous crusades. It is a social-engineering,

    eradication crusade decided upon in the 1970s by a small, self-installed clique
    operating under the auspices of the World Health Organization. This little,
    unelected group decided for everyone that tobacco-use should be eradicated from
    the world. Secondhand smoke “danger” is a concoction to advance the agenda. The
    bulk of what comes out of the Tobacco Control Industry is lies. For those who
    still think this is about pubs and just having to step outside for a cigarette,
    the current phase of propaganda/denormali
    zation is to introduce bans outdoors
    as well. In a number of countries there are already bans on entire hospital
    grounds and university campuses, on beaches, and in parks that have nothing to
    do with protecting nonsmokers from SHS “danger”. Those who smoke are also being
    denied employment, housing, and medical treatment"

Dramatic anti-tobacco street performance takes place in Carlisle

Dramatic anti-tobacco street performance takes place in Carlisle

First published in News

AN anti-tobacco street performance took place in the centre of Carlisle yesterday.

Four performances – featuring 12 dancers and a street poet who delivered an anti-tobacco rap titled ‘Last Man Standing’ – finished with a sinister twist: half the performers ‘died’ during the piece, falling to the ground.

Each performance, was filmed, and will be promoted to young people online in Cumbria as part of a 60 second viral campaign.

Other performances took place across the North West.

Andrea Crossfield, Chief Executive of Tobacco Free Futures, the anti-tobacco social enterprise who organised the performance, said: “At Tobacco Free Futures we do everything we can to turn off this tap of new smokers in Cumbria.

“This street performance will not only be seen by people on the day, but by thousands of young people online.”

Patricia Bell, Cabinet Member for Public Health and Community Services said: “In Cumbria, we are committed to doing everything we can to educate young and old alike about the dangers of smoking.

“Smoking is extremely dangerous for your health, with tobacco smoke containing over 4,000 toxic chemicals including arsenic and polonium.

“However, often this message can get lost. That’s why it’s great to communicate this in an inventive and exciting way that will hopefully help young people understand, before they are tempted to enter into a lifetime addiction.”
