For a fair blood donation (petition before 31 May08)

Anonyme, Miércoles, Febrero 27, 2008 - 09:57

In Quebec, as well as in Canada at large, every man who had a sexual relationship with another man since 1977 is automatically excluded from donating blood, regardless of whether or not they were monogamous and/or used protection. We consider this regulation discriminatory.

This is why we made a petition to ask Hema-Quebec, the Canadian Blood Services, and Health Canada to change their blood donor policy.

We urge you to print this petition and collect as much signatures as possible. When it is done, send it back to the address written on it. We plan on depositing the petition on June 14th, which is the Worldwide blood donation day, unless canadian elections happen before. Please return petitions before May 31, 2008.

We also wish to obtain organization support. If you wish to sign-on to the petition as an official support from a group, write to us and share your logo and web site.

Together, we can change things.
Help us save lives !

Ceci est un média alternatif de publication ouverte. Le collectif CMAQ, qui gère la validation des contributions sur le Indymedia-Québec, n'endosse aucunement les propos et ne juge pas de la véracité des informations. Ce sont les commentaires des Internautes, comme vous, qui servent à évaluer la qualité de l'information. Nous avons néanmoins une Politique éditoriale , qui essentiellement demande que les contributions portent sur une question d'émancipation et ne proviennent pas de médias commerciaux.

This is an alternative media using open publishing. The CMAQ collective, who validates the posts submitted on the Indymedia-Quebec, does not endorse in any way the opinions and statements and does not judge if the information is correct or true. The quality of the information is evaluated by the comments from Internet surfers, like yourself. We nonetheless have an Editorial Policy , which essentially requires that posts be related to questions of emancipation and does not come from a commercial media.
