    Save Vaping Rally - Melbourne -Tuesday 16th

    Save Vaping Rally in Melbourne on Tuesday 16th of August on the steps of Parliament House 1 Spring Street, Melbourne 12.30pm
    The Rally is organized by New Nicotine Alliance AU and EROS Association. So if you are in Melbourne please come and support the Rally and your Vaping Rights.
    Bring your family, friends and tell your fellow vapers. Take the day off work, call in sick, take an annual leave day, whatever it takes to be there so you can take a stand against the proposed Tobacco Amendment Bill 2016 (VIC).
    Hope to see you there
    Cheers, Jason

    Is this the same EROS Association who last year was lobbying pollies to only allow the sale of tobacco from "Adult Shops" or age restricted premises, (who strangely they purport to represent) and urging their members to obtain tobacco licenses?

    Adult industry lobby group Eros Association, Australian Sex Party want tobacco sale restricted to adults only premises - ABC News (Australian Broadcasting Corporation)
    Take tobacco out of supermarkets and into R18 premises, Eros Association urges

    While I can agree to an extent that it could be seen as a "denormalisation" exercise regarding tobacco sales and getting rid of cigarette sale points from supermarkets etc ... it surely also implies "their" members would be the ones making a killing out of a "protected industry" (or as at least one article points out , a monopoly) and growing their own membership base ?

    good luck with that the closest porn shop is 4hrs 15mins and 25 secs from my house in a different state.
    if they made a law like that out here in the bush the farmers would lynch the local politicians.

    I can see some aussie juice & mod makers getting behind this regardless- (esp if a few more external (non NNA) negotiations happen)

    If there is a potential for a monopoly by sex shops on vaping - Some juice and mod makers may also stand to benefit by creating monopolies within those shops... (even if its bt or bp based)

    Curious times....

    Yes it is strange, I have to agree with your last paragraph there fatman and I cant help but wonder what their motives are exactly, I may quiz the NNA about it on the day. I will be taking plenty of photos and a few videos too, maybe an interview or two.

    I hope the rally gets some positive media coverage, I had few people come and talk with me at the Caribbean Market on Sunday after the doco on vaping aired on SBS the previous Monday night, it was great to see a positive response to vaping from the general public that had watch the documentary.
    I urge anyone who can make it to do so, the rally will need a good show of strength from vapers on the day to send a positive message to the the government, Be there people ... or I will come around and Dry Burn all of ya wicks when your not looking

    1983: Malcom Fraser couldn't go to any public place to speak without getting hounded. Eventually he stopped going and sent his wife instead. Mind you the change was already pretty well inevitable by then, and he was running against Hawkie. No Contest.

    I think finding out beforehand would be a better option. Links with EROS could keep people away.

    I fondly remember the first time I went there, strange place I thought. But I was not there for those shops but a retail chain store that I supported (IT wise) which was there also.

    I left there with a this. It's an industrial type estate with every second shop selling adult goods and every third selling fireworks.
