January is a busy month for us here at LDNNow, due to the success of our petition to 10 Downing St, we have a panel meeting coming up on in Southampton at the NIHR to discuss whether there should be further research/trials into LDN, so thanks to all who supported/signed this.
We now have a link set up to collect signatures for LDN to be available to all through trials/research (focussing on the human rights issue) to the European Parliament. I have spoken to the person responsible for approving/disapproving whether petitions go through to the relevant committee which it has, and I am pleased to say we have now worked out a system to collect signatures. Due to technical difficulties they have requested we set up the petition link and forward all signatures to them (they were having technical difficulties in Dec and don't know when it will be resolved).
The person I spoke to who is in charge of approving petitions has heard LDN is now making "big waves" (her expression) and a friend of hers has MS and knows all about LDN. So please if you can take half a minute and add your signature that will be great. All that is needed is your name and email address and anyone can sign in the world. We got over 13,000 signatures for the 10 Downing Street petition (which only British citizens can sign), so please support this important campaign and add your name to the list. It literally takes 30 seconds. I believe they will be discussing the petition at the end of January so if you can pass the link on to any of your family and friends that would be greatly appreciated.

Many thanks for your continued support!
Jayne (at the risk of sounding like some petition fanatic) - but this one is of vital international importance so please help.
