NEEDS YOUR SUPPORT
is a non-profit educational effort. Farces.org is in the process of building a list of links to antitobacco and antismoking
websites belonging to individuals and non-profit organizations that do not have the funding to hire full-time staff.
This site is dedicated to the "little people" who make the difference in combating
the Forces of Big Tobacco.
- Your support is needed to keep up the fight for the right to breathe clean air,
and so that we can keep
pushing back against the agenda of the tobacco cartel!
- FARCES (Foster All Restrictions
to Control and Eliminate Smoking) was
founded by ordinary citizens as a way for ordinary citizens to fight a new type of
propaganda crusade - anti-antitobacco, and hence against tobacco companies. This
is to say that Farces.org is anti-anti-antitobacco as first there were
antitobacco organizations warning of the use of tobacco and then there were anti-antitobacco organizations attempting to negate their warnings.
- FARCES is active in local political fights, in the media, and in
research. We believe that we have a huge internet base to recruit from. FARCES
members in several countries are involved in activism, recruitment and education. And our
numbers are growing every day.
- Many - but certainly not all - of our members and supporters are non-smokers. What we really
have in common is a concern that today's aggressive lobbying by the
tobacco cartel is leading to a number of highly undesirable consequences: a
"drug-war" style victimization of one-quarter of the population; onerous
taxation disproportionately aimed at lower income earners; run-away litigation resulting
in a massive transfer of wealth to lawyers and government; a de facto disrespect for the
idea of individual rights; the dangerous debasement and misrepresentation of
science in order to expedite a political agenda.
- FARCES is not a creature of the tobacco industry, and
certainly does not receive
funding from Big Tobacco. This means we do not have to "toe the line" within the
confines of some corporate agenda--or risk moneys not being laundered to
us. It means we are free to call 'em as we see 'em - and to
criticize not only the proponents of tobacco, but governments (which we frequently
do). It also means that your support is even more important, to ensure the
continuation of this independent voice against the corruption of the

our lives. Here is the list of links submitted so far.
