    The team of MillionsMissing Deutschland designed a poster campaign with pwME, this is the first motive. It says "I want my life back, Jens Spahn" (Jens Spahn is the Federal Minister of Health).

    Some more pictures from the protest in Berlin.

    These little guys are so cute. One of the bedbound pwME who used them to take part, wrote: "It was awesome. I haven't had so much social interaction in years".

    If you're on Facebook or Twitter, we'd be very happy if you support the brave pwME who take part in our poster campaign with a like, share or comment. The posters are directed at the German federal minister of health and say "I want my live back, Jens Spahn": https://www.facebook.com/pg/mmissinggermany/photos/?tab=album&album_id=1867275806903832

    Every picture is posted with information about the disease or citations from researchers or the story of the shown pwME and tags the maximum allowed number of politicians and institutions.

    Examples:

    We uploaded many more single videos from #MillionsMissing Berlin on Youtube:
    https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCEaUZZDxY72llnlHmpZ2dJg/videos

    There are also dance performances and songs if you're not keen on talks in German. :)
    E.g. this song is from Unrest:


    We're also in the process of editing and cutting the material from the professional camera person who filmed, so many interesting videos and interviews still to come. :)

    Some more pictures from Berlin were uploaded. As I was involved in the planning but couldn't be there in person I'm superexcited about every new picture and video (what explains the overkill of pictures in this thread :)).

    Very pleased how the info booth turned out to look (will be used for future actions). The umbrella has different demands printed on the sides. The demand you can see says "Science instead of ignorance".

    We had made different info posters, that were directed at the German healthcare system, the German minister of health, the guideline tiredness committee, German doctors and one about PACE. [​IMG]
