London NHS demo to march on Parliament!
Meet 11am at Kingston Station on Saturday 18th May.
Assemble 12 noon at Jubilee Gardens, near Waterloo station.
Keep Our NHS Public has called a London-wide demonstration on Saturday 18th May. NHS campaigners from around the Capital will march on Parliament against cuts, closures and privatisation.
Already the demonstration has been backed by London Labour Party conference, Unite the Union, Save Lewisham A&E and the Defend the Whittington Hospital campaign.
There is the clear potential for an absolutely massive show of anger against the attacks on our health services – but we need to go all out to build it as big as possible.
Five ways to build the demonstration
1. Why not print off some leaflets for the demonstration. Get them out in your workplace, school, college or GP's surgery. We’ll be regularly updating our website with more leaflets as we get more details about the march.
2. Share the facebook event and invite your friends!
3. Are you a trade unionist? We need the backing of local trade union branches and national unions. Pass the KONP motion in your union branch. Or get your organisation to donate to Kingston KONP - we need money to pay for materials, meeting space, banners and all the other things we need to push forward the fight for our NHS.
4. Come to the Kingston KONP stall – it’s every Saturday at 2pm, outside the Bentall’s Centre. You don’t need to be an expert on NHS cuts – you just need to be passionate and willing to help leaflet and petition the public.
This is where we will try to publish anti-cuts news we receive
