“Under-staffed, under-funded and under attack” – time to defend our NHS!
Members of Coventry Socialist Party were out campaigning in Jubilee Crescent, Radford this Saturday in defence of the National Health Service and building support for the national demonstration on Saturday 4th March, 2017.
Hundreds of leaflets were distributed and petitions signed against the extortionate car parking fees at Walsgrave Hospital, all part of the Private Finance Initiative. Thank you to everyone who signed our petitions, donated towards our campaigning work, bought copies of The Socialist or took away leaflets.
As the front page article in the current issue of our newspaper The Socialist explains, “The Tory plan to privatise the NHS via the back door has given way to smashing in via the entrance”.
The NHS is under-staffed, under-funded and under attack. The national demonstration called by Health Campaigns Together is already backed by the UNITE and PCS trade unions with more set to follow. The “It’s our NHS” demonstration can show our opposition to Tory plans, but crucially it can be a springboard for the fight of our lives to defend our health service.
There will be transport from Coventry – please fill in the form below if you would like to book your place on the transport or want leaflets to help build for it!
