People’s March for the NHS across England

People's March POSTER colourThis summer will see the biggest People’s March for the NHS take place across England. Following in the footsteps of the Jarrow marchers back in 1936 a group of mums are organising a people’s march for the NHS leaving Jarrow on the 16/8/14 and arriving to Parliament, London on the 6/9/14.

The march will cover approximately 300 miles with town stops along the way. The message is a simple one, that the NHS is owned by and loved by us and every effort will be made to stop it being sold off.

The organisers say:

‘We are angry and shocked at the Governments assault on our most prized inheritance. But, day by day, numbers of us folks willing to fight for the NHS are growing. We all need our NHS and we think it’s time to join up the thousands already campaigning and work together to keep it!

We are connecting people across our communities who are every bit as angry as we are, and who have decided to take up the fight to protect our hospitals and services from health profiteers.

If like us, you want your voice to be heard, if you are tired of silently watching our health service be dismantled and undermined, then the we ask you to take up the 999 Call for the NHS and join The People’s March for the NHS.’
