Post **Sticky please** 10:23 national homeopathic 'overdose'

Just a heads up guys, at 10:23 on June 30th, the 10:23 campaign is organising a nationwide 'overdose' on Boots homeopathic products to raise awareness. http://www.1023.org.uk/the-1023-overdose-event.php

*You don't have to be otherwise involved in 'Sceptics in the pub' to join in!!*

I found out through some people at uni, and am now attending the one in Oxford. (thus I don't represent the campaign in any way, I'm just spreading the word).
Get in touch with the relevant groups here: http://www.1023.org.uk/contact-us.php
And then maybe put them onto your relevant university science societies etc. (if applicable), get as many people involved as you can :D
Or otherwise just rock up on your own or with some friends, I'm sure it'd be appreciated either way.

Cheers everyone,
CM

This is actually taking place this month not in June.

Did you hear about the man who forgot to take his homeopathic medicine?


He overdosed...

Aaah, sorry guys for the typo... I kinda meant Jan the 30th : /

But yeh, just got back, and I'm not dead yet, so all's well.
It was really good fun though, took pills, handed out leaflets... I think we made at least a small impact.
Boots threatened to call the police, but we told them we weren't doing anything illegal, so they kinda didn't :P

But it was a fairly pleasant way to spend a Saturday morning. :D

I'm always torn when it comes to these. On the one hand, it makes a great point. On the other, you're giving them money.
