I've made some banners:

ME/CFS target the cause, not the patient!

Frank, so agree - target the cause not the patient (we talked for too long to dead ears). Bestest wishes.

Just got back from the manifestation. Probably won't change a lot but it was good to connect with other patients and to get the word out. Here is a tv-report.

Your TV report is so inspiring! I didn't understand a word, but I cried anyway. Thanks to every single person who put forth their effort to participate.

Good job, guys! Not a huge crowd but good size. Whose the doc they talked about?

[Note to Americans: We should have tubas and horns, why not a whole marching band?, for US protests! Heck, throw in a few cheerleaders for good measure! Attracts attention, keeps the mood up.]

A lot of people with ME/CFS have noise sensitivity so might not hang around too long with too much noise/sound?
