Join the People's March for the NHS

999_Call_for_the_NHS_banner_650px.jpgThe NHS is our birthright. We made it. we use it. we own it. We love it. Now it's under threat and we have to stand up for it. A group of Darlington mums are following the Jarrow marchers to walk from Newcastle to London to save our NHS. We'll organise a series of events on their arrival in Nottingham including a rally from 5.15pm in Nottingham's Old Market Square. Use the Facebook event to promote it.

The march will arrive in Mansfield on the evening of Wednesday 27 August. It leaves Mansfield on Thursday 28 August and travels through Sutton, Kirkby, Newstead, Hucknall, Bulwell and arrive for a rally in Nottingham sometime around or shortly after 5pm. We're working out the exact route with exact timings but in the meantime we have done a flyer which you can distribute. Email us to get some flyers sent out to you.

    A warning to our generation. Harry Smith writes about life before the welfare state and the NHS. Harry is 91 now and fought for the life we have today. However, his sister died of Tuberculosis because his family couldn't afford health care. He grew up in slum conditions. We don't want to go back to that.

    Lilian Greenwood has just signed our open letter to the local papers about the march for the NHS. Have you? If we can crowdfund enough money we can put full page ads in all the local papers. We're already a 3rd of the way there, but we still need to raise £1,000!

    We're lucky enough to have the support of our Labour councils in Nottingham and Nottinghamshire. In Northampton the Tories have turned against the NHS marchers. Let's make them pay for their callousness with a huge march through Northampton.
