The TUC are holding a ‘Save Our NHS’ demonstration outside the Conservative Conference in Manchester on September 29th. York People’s Assembly are working with local trades council York TUC and Defend Our NHS York to mobilise people to attend. We recently held a publicity event targeting commuters in the city centre (see picture). We’ve filled one coach and we’re close to filling our second – have you got your ticket?
The NHS is at a turning point: either it will become a two-tier system where the poor get second rate service and big companies make big money, or we can fight to save it and restore it to the national treasure it has been for 65 years. It promises to be a great day and probably the largest march Manchester has seen for many years. We hope you can join us, but if you can’t, watch out on twitter for the #nhs299 tag where people will be posting news and information.
