Sunraysia's Anti Fluoridation Network

We are a group of concerned citizens fighting against an anti democratic campaign by the Victorian Government & Mildura Rural City Council to introduce the S7 poison Hydrofluorosilicic Acid (Fluoride) to our vital drinking water supply.

94% of surveyed resident's say NO!

Why are they going ahead with expensive and dangerous Fluoridation when the people clearly don't want it?
Last time I checked I thought we lived in a democracy?

The following is a list of articles and commentary intended to educate people to the truths of Fluoride - Make up your own mind!

Anti-Fluoride hunger strike in Mt Gambier

Mount Gambier anti-fluoride campaigner Alex Young is now one week into his hunger strike.

He's lost almost six kilograms, but the government shows no sign of budging on the issue.

Alex Young was arrested after chaining himself to the Blue Lake gates early last week.

His protest wasn't heard by the Minister for Health so he resorted to a hunger strike.

"Definitely not as much energy as I normally have but that is to be expected," Mr Young said.

He's longing to have a hot dog once the strike is over.

Mr Young claims to have only left the Blue Lake for 30 minutes in the past week.

"It has been cold to say the least and I look forward to returning home at some point back to. Everyone likes their own bed," he said.

Choice Mount Gambier collected almost 7000 signatures calling for a referendum on whether fluoride should be added to the water.

The Health Minister John Hill is on leave until the end of the month.

"As most people say it's been a very convenient move," Mr Young said.

But the Minister's spokesperson says the leave has nothing to do with the fluoridation project or Mr Young's protest.

"I think the Government has been right through this process before and are very determined that we should have fluoride in our water and a lot of people within Mount Gambier also support that fact so I think it's a fait acompli," Mr Young said.

Mr Young says he'll reassess his position come August 15 when a support Choice day will be held at the Blue Lake.

"I support him 100 per cent," one resident said.

"Bigger fool him for not eating I think," another said.

"Personal choice I suppose if he wants to go that far I myself wouldn't do that because I don't think it's going to do any good to be quite honest," another remarked.

"There should be a referendum. If he's gone to the trouble of getting six or six and half thousand signatures there should be a referendum on it," a resident commented.

"Madness," another said.

A booklet explaining the petition and the Government's response is available at the Library and Council.

SA Water says fluoride will be added to the water late September.


  1. Well done Alex. You are doing this for all Australians. We have all lost our democratic right to freedom of choice. Without poisoning me the pro fluoridists have lots of options, toothpaste being just one. Leave my public drinking water alone!

  2. NO POISON in our water !

    The 'punks' who put this stuff in our water, don't care about little babies kidneys, or old people's brittle bones, or anyone's intelligence (coz F messes with the Thyroid).

    NO POISON in our water !

  3. Alex Young....kudos to you.

    But please re-think the "hot-dog" when your strike ends. They've got nitrates in them - a proven carcinogen.

    Don't fight to remove one toxin, just to ingest another!!
