Rights for The Affected
In 1979, five months after the medication was implemented nationally for all Affected, the pressure group ‘Freedom For Affected Rights, Transglobal’ took the British Government to court. They claimed that since the medication stops The Affected killing and they are not dead, they retain their citizenship and, accordingly, should be protected under law.
‘It’s not like the movies where everyone becomes John Wayne and kills all their friends and neighbours without a second thought. I could never pop a cap into my Stanley’s head. That’s hardly decent’ – Marjorie Fotheringham, Sussex.
FFART won the case but have not been able to take it to international level due to reporting and communication restrictions.
