#MillionsMissing Will Take to the Streets on May 12th – Join Them!

The #MillionsMissing are taking to the streets in 17 cities across the world on Friday, May 12th to once again demand change for people with Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (ME).
Five cities in the UK are hosting #MillionsMissing rallies – with London taking a stance before the department of health for the third time. Norway will demonstrate in five cities. Sydney will hold a rally on a beach, laying out thongs (instead of shoes) to represent the people missing from the lives from ME.
In Europe, actions will take place in Denmark, Iceland, Ireland, Netherlands and Sweden. One of the train stations will light up blue in Zwolle, Holland in solidarity with the international Day of Awareness for ME on May 12th.
The U.S. is planning a #MillionsMissing demonstration before the California capitol building in Sacramento on June 2nd.
Virtual protests will also take place in Australia, Belgium, Canada, Finland, France, Germany, Norway, Poland, South Africa Spain, Sweden.
May 12th will be the third #MillionsMissing Day of Action in just over a year. #MillionsMissing is an ongoing movement that began in May of 2016 when one woman approached #MEAction about using our platform to organize a protest in Washington, D.C. The protest spread to thousands of people across the world calling on their governments to respond to the millions of people missing from their lives due to ME – a disease that has long been stigmatized and is desperately missing adequate funding for biomedical research, as well as clinical trials, medical education and public awareness.

Join the protest virtually

Show your solidarity for the #MillionsMissing movement from your bed by laying out your empty shoes (to represent the life your are missing due to ME), take a photo and share it on social media with the hashtag #MillionsMissing. If you are comfortable, write a note about how the disease has impacted your life. For one day, let us be visible together.

  1. I have the city of Houston lighting up their city hall again for me this May 11, 12, 13 for MECFS Awareness Day. See my Facebook page USA MECFS Light Up the Night.
    Millions Missing should use this opportunity this year for a rally.

    Where is the nearest place go missing millions to me ,I live in Rugby Warwickshire Thnkyou

  3. Hi I’m from Baltimore, Maryland and I’m bedridden/housebound due to ME/CFS. The only time I leave my house with the assistance from my husband (full time caregiver) and my service dog is to go to medical appointments. Ive been seeing your #MillionsMissing T-Shirts on Instagram and other social media apps and would love to have one to wear to spread awareness when I go out to my appointments bc not very many people are aware of this devastating, disabling, debilitating, painfully intractable, chronic illness in Baltimore and I would love to educate and spread awareness in my city. How can I get one of these #MillionsMissing T-shirts? Thanks

A photo from Millions Missing Scotland of a group of 20 protestors outside the Scottish Parliament. They’re looking serious and holding signs that say Millions Missing, and a pledge signed by MSPs. Many are wearing red ME Action t-shirts. A yellow icon of a person is overlaid next to them with an arrow pointing to it and the words ‘Could it be your MSP?’ A red banner along the bottom says ‘Share your story and ask your MSPs to stand up for people with ME.’
