Both Swansea and now London will be joining our vaping friends from around Europe

to stand up and tell our governments they MUST SAY NO to TPD article 20 (posted on behalf of @markm, AAEC)

Here's some more information about the Swansea protest:

And some of the content of the Facebook European Vapers Protest - Wales - Friday May 29th 2015 event page:

The time has come again to make our disgruntled voices heard as we have done on previous occasions. The difference this protest will mark 1 year until the targeted date for implementation of the TPD.

So what should you do? GET YOUR FEET TO CASTLE SQAURE ON FRIDAY MAY 29TH!! APATHY WILL NOT BE TOLERATED!!

The previous advocacy/protest gathering have been poorly attended due to day or location. So, what is there in the pipe line to get more people there? Here is what is currently in the pipeline.

1 - RAFFLE!
Vendors have already been approached and are willing to donate. Tickets will cost 20p or £1 a strip. All raffle proceeds will go to a vaping related cause. Cause to be confirmed.

Prizes! (Will be updated when donations are received)
= Stainless Steel Manhattan Mech & Siren Song RDA - Uplands Vapours, Swansea
- Arctic Tank & Spare set of 0.5ohm BDTCs
- Smok Pro M45 http://www.ecigarettedirect.co.uk/smok-x...vv-vw.html
- 5 x 10ml 1.8% (18mg/ml) Assorted Flavour Halo Eliquids
- 5 x 10ml 1.2% (12mg/ml) Assorted Flavour Halo Eliquids

2 - POST PROTEST PUB SESSION - THE OFFICE, CASTLE GARDENS
The Office, one of Swansea's primary live music venues is vape friendly. The manager is 100% behind us and will let any protesters warm up with hot drinks and use of loos [Image: smiley17.gif] We are fully welcome in the evening until late. We also have free use of the PA to announce our raffle winners too. For all you Real Ale drinkers there is Hobgoblin, Doombar and Trooper. [Image: smiley17.gif]

3 - MEDIA COVERAGE
Local media will be contacted about this protest gathering. This will surely be a missed opportunity especially as e-cigs are becoming more and more public. If anybody has contact with media, please pass on details to them [Image: smiley45.gif]

4 - MEET YOUR POLITICIANS (subject to free time)
By the 29th of May, the General Election will have its result for all local MPs. These elected MPs will get an open invitation. Local AMs will also receive an open invitation. This will be the perfect time for MPs and AMs to get told all your vaping related concerns and make sure they realise that vapers do not hide behind emails & social media.

The current behind-the-scenes team:
Rhydian Mann - raffle, Health & Safety, pub session
Bernice Evans - flyer/promo material design and printing

Come On People.... If you live in the UK get to one of these protest.. A good way to keep cost down is to organise to car share with fellow vapers who live in the same Town/City or live somewhere on route...
