MS Society Protest - July 2000

On 27th July 2000, the MS Society and Jooly's Joint staged a protest outside the Dept of Health in London, during which people with MS wore gags.

We were protesting against the National Institute for Clinical Excellence, who are proposing that beta interferon should not be available on the NHS, while refusing to listen to people with MS.

6 members of Jooly's Joint joined the protest.

Here are the pictures....
