GEELONG's anti-fluoride lobby is organising a lunch-time protest march along Moorabool St next month.
Organiser Peter Linaker urged people to join him in the march on April 17 to protest against the fluoridation of Geelong's water supply.
Victoria's chief health officer Dr John Carnie last week gave the green light to the fluoridation of Geelong's water supply.
Announcing his decision, Dr Carnie said the dental health benefits for young people from drinking fluoridated water were proven.
He added that children in Geelong needed the same benefits as those in the rest of the state.
``In particular, children who live in fluoridated areas of Victoria experience considerably less decay than those in non-fluoridated areas,'' he said.
Mr Linaker said fluoridation was mass medication and was not necessary. He said the community would reject fluoridation if given a vote.
