Kennedy Will lead CDC March
Minister Louis Farrakhan, leader of the Nation of Islam and convenor of the Million Man March has lent his support to Attorney Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., who will lead a march on Friday, October 23, 2015 on The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) at 7:00 am. Farrakhan is making good on a promise to be more actively involved in the community, that he made at the “Justice or Else March two weeks ago.”
According to organizing materials, the march in front of the CDC, which is located at 1600 Clifton Road, Atlanta, Georgia is dubbed the “Truth, Transparency and Freedom March.”
At issue is the MMR (Measles, Mumps and Rubella) vaccine which contains trace elements of mercury. According to Farrakhan’s Justice or Else website:
“Last August, Dr. William Thompson, a SENIOR SCIENTIST AT THE CDC, made serious allegations that the CDC conducted scientific misconduct and threw away data that showed a 240% increased risk of Autism in black boys after being administered with the MMR vaccine.”
Kennedy believes the CDC is withholding valuable information from the public about the harmful effect of the MMR vaccine. He has been trying to get congress to investigate the drugs companies who produce this vaccine and the CDC, and to create legislation that will allow parents to decide whether their child receives certain vaccines.
Conservative white Americans have long held the belief that the MMR vaccine cause autism in their children. The CDC has said that there is no reliable science that supports this contention. At the last Republican Debate, the front runner, Donald Trump , said that vaccinations caused autism. On the stage with Trump was Republican contender, Ben Carson, a former neurosurgeon. Carson did not dispute the truth of Trump’s claims.
Following failed efforts to get Congress to enact legislation to regulate the CDC, Kennedy traveled to Chicago to speak with Farrakhan to discuss his belief that mercury based drugs represent a clear and present danger to black male children. As a result of Kennedy’s conversation with Farrakhan he was able to bring two diverse groups of Americans together for this weekend’s march on the CDC, conservative white Americans and Black Muslims.
Farrakhan will not attend any of the events in Atlanta this weekend. However, Kennedy will lead the march on Friday, attend the rally in Grant Park on Saturday and play an active role in the 9:00 AM Interfaith Prayer Service at Muhammad Mosque #15, which is located at 3642 Campbellton Road, Atlanta, Georgia.
