Outraged Parents and Advocates Call for Multi-City Protests Against Microsoft Chairman and Billionaire Bill Gates After Being Called “Child Killers”

Press Conference to Take Place Tomorrow, Thursday, February 23rd at 12:00 Noon Across From Microsoft Executive Offices in Manhattan

(New York, N.Y.) Vaccine safety and autism advocates Louise Kuo Habakus and Mary Holland, Esq. will join other citizens, parents and organizations at a major press conference on Thursday, February 23, 2011 at 12:00 noon to announce the start of a multi-city protest involving tens of thousands of outraged parents of children who have vaccine injury, autism and other chronic disabilities. The protest and press conference against Microsoft founder and Chairman Bill Gates challenges his controversial remarks on national TV that those who question vaccine safety “kill children." The attendees are demanding an immediate apology from Gates. The press conference will take place outside the Microsoft Executive Offices at 1290 Avenue of the Americas (corner of 52nd Street) in Manhattan.

These groups will hold additional protests in Manhattan, Long Beach and Omaha where Gates will be speaking publicly. The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation has pledged $10 billion over the next decade for global vaccine development, production, and distribution. Although vaccines have contributed to the reduction of some infectious disease, the recommended doses of vaccines for children have exploded. Parents in New York City schools are required by law to give their children 35 vaccines to attend school.
Habakus and Holland are co-editors and authors of recently released book Vaccine Epidemic and both are national leaders in the autism and vaccine safety movement.

When: Thursday, February 23, 2011, 12:00 noon

Where: Microsoft Executive Offices
1290 Avenue of the Americas (corner of 52nd Street)
New York, NY
