  3. I have made these chants/ slogans if any of the organisers want to use them for any of the millions missing protests , and by ME Acrion themselves for any posters to express protest aims and key issues as seen fit .
    Chant :
    First do no Harm !
    No more CBT and GET
    No more ME patient deaths
    No More !
    Dr Mark Van Ness, proves the harms of GET
    The Workwell Foundation, proves we arnt faking
    Damaged aerobic system . When will you listen
    We don’t have fear . The science is clear
    We’re fighting for our lives , biological treatment is denied
    NICE recommend CBT and GET , because it costs the NHS less
    Patients have to go private , the GMC remains silent
    GMC, stop looking the other way , it is time for change
    GMC , update the education of our GPs , so they stop ignoring patients needs
    People with ME , can’t get treatment for Free
    People with ME die , because investigations are denied
    NICE , stop ignoring the Facts , give psychiatrists the sack
    AHRQ review , Says CBT and GET have no proof
    Remove ME from the static list NICE , stop ignoring biological researchers advice
    NICE needs more than Psychs
    Psychologists don’t have the skill set, to study a mutisystemic disease
    If you ignore biological research , your not an ME Expert !
    The research is there , but NICE doesn’t care
    Recommending GET is Medical Neglect
    CBT and GET , are not the only options left
    Treat the biochemistry , that underline the biological abnormalities
    NHS , POTS is not an alternative diagnosis , Orthostatic Intolerance is in the IOM diagnostic criteria
    NICE stop refusing to test for Orthostatic Intolerance .
    The NIH says get rid of the Oxford criteria . Use diagnostic criteria that is superior
    Stop calling ME , CFS .
    ME is a mutisystemic disease not a syndrome
    The Biophycosocial model doesn’t work , when you ignore the biological Research !
    GPS , Not informing of harms of GET….. is breaking Uk law on consent !
    GPs , that follow NICE , don’t follow the Science
    GPS , don’t be caught short , read the IOM report
    GPs , put NICE Guidelines back . Learn the research Facts .
    GPS , Get Invest in ME , DVD , it counts toward your CPD
    Pediatric and Adult ME , have no proven difference , says the GMC
    biological ab- nor – mal – li- ties , are not corrected with CBT
    A multisystem disease, is not corrected with CBT
    Mitochondrial dysfunction is not corrected , with CBT and GET
    The gut microbiome is not corrected ,with CBT and GET
    Methylation function is not corrected , with CBT and GET
    A damaged aerobic system is not corrected , with CBT and GET
    Chronic bacterial and viral infection is not corrected with CBT and GET
    Toxicity is not corrected with CBT and GET
    First do no Harm !
    No more CBT and GET
    No more ME patient deaths
    No More !
