Have you heard that anthroposophical medical rememdies, biodynamic products, and Waldorf education, indeed, all the things out of anthropsophy that we love and hold dear are in danger, because the European Union does not recognize the validity of the products and services that are based on a spiritual view of the human being? Do you know that the EU is making laws that will make these products and services illegal? (For instance, the new EU guidelines mandate that ALL baby food must have synthetic vitamins added, even though the Demeter baby foods don’t need them because their own NATURAL vitamin content has been proven to be equivalent. And Hauschka sun screen will not longer be manufactured because it doesn’t have the particular CHEMICAL ingredients that the EU requires.) Just today we learned that now in Holland the anthroposophical medicines that are not classified as “homeopathic” are no longer legal.
The freedom of the consumer is being curtailed through these laws. And what happens in Europe could easily and predictably also happen here.
Our friends in Europe have been told that if they can gather 1,000,000 signatures (by Dec. 31, 2008), they will establish their identity as an interest/consumer group, and be guaranteed a positive review of their products under EU laws. Signatures gathered in North America will also be accepted, in the spirit of international commerce. We thus far have 630,000 signatures — a good start, but still less than 2/3 of the way there!
Therefore, PLEASE JOIN ME in supporting this movement, by going to the website listed below and signing this signature. AND PLEASE also forward this email — with my text if you like — to 3, or 5, or 10 of your friends this week, and urging them to get on board as well.

Dear supporters of the ELIANT campaign
One alone does not help, but
rather whoever unites with
many others at the right time.
We’d like to thank you very warmly for your online signatures for the ELIANT campaign. We have now received over 630,000 signatures, which encourages us to ask you for a one-off Christmas gift to ELIANT:
Would it be possible for you to send this email to 3 friends or acquaintances and ask them to sign online? If so, we could achieve one million signatures by Christmas!
In this way you will be helping to secure legal safeguards in Europe for DEMETER quality baby and infant foods without artificial vitamin supplementation, freedom of choice in education and full and free availability of anthroposophic medicines!
Your friends and acquaintances can sign online here: www.eliant.eu
And >here< you can print out a signature list and send it out with your Christmas post
With very warm thanks
and best wishes for Advent and Christmas
for the ELIANT Alliance sponsor group
