The 3 November demonstration in defence of the NHS will be the focus for the growing tide of anger at government attacks on the health service.
Local campaigns up and down the country which have organised communities the country against cuts and closures are building for 3 November. But, as ever, the union leadershi have been rather slower to act. There is however still time to organise in workplaces to get health workers out to London for the day.
The provisional details for the day’s protest are to assemble from 11am on Saturday 3rd at Temple Place on Victoria Embankment (Temple Tube), then at noon beginning a march through Westminster for a 1pm rally in Trafalgar Square.
The price of failing to build for the demonstration and reverse the government agenda will be not having free, universal healthcare in the future. Without the option of paying for private medicine like the rich, it does become a matter of life or death for most workers.
