#MillionsMissing Visibility Action: Dublin, Republic of Ireland
#MillionsMissing is a global campaign for M.E. health equality. Help us make noise on May 10th, 2018 by joining our Visibility Action in Dublin!
On May 10th, M.E. Advocates Ireland (MEAI) will host the second Dublin #MillionsMissing event in front of Irish Government Buildings. M.E. patients, carers, advocates, family and friends will gather at 11:30 AM until 2:30 PM in front of Leinster House, Kildare Street, to raise awareness and demand health equality for the Millions Missing because of Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (M.E.),, and to highlight the total lack of appropriate medical and support services for people with M.E. in Ireland.
*Information Tag Display - We are creating an information display this year which will include Information Tags from people with M.E.
To involve as many people with M.E. as possible in this year’s event, the organisers have invited people with M.E., or their carers, to send us an Information Tag - a brief piece of information about you and your illness, or about the person you are caring for, and a photo too.
The Information Tag will be displayed for others to read at the Dublin Millions Missing event, e.g. Government Representatives, attendees, and passers-by.
The Information Tags will represent all M.E. patients, especially those who cannot attend the event. The more representation of the M.E. community we have on display the better.
Please see the event hosts’ (MEAI) blog on how to create an Information Tag with some details about yourself, or your sibling, friend, parent, child, etc. who lives with M.E. (with permission of course!) and a photo to be displayed at the Millions Missing Dublin event, and how to get it to the organisers.
This visibility action is part of a worldwide event to coincide with World M.E. Day.
Afterwards we will post pictures of this Visibility Action on social media along with others from around the world to inundate social media and demonstrate the mass collective action for ME health equality!
We are the #MillionsMissing, and we will take a stand together and be seen!
