In June, we’ll be taking part in Labour’s Rail Campaign Day on 25th June and going to the NHS 70th Birthday demo on 30th June.
Labour’s Rail Campaign Day
Join us to share Labour’s message on ending rip off rail fares and bringing the railways back into public ownership. If you’ve not been leafleting before, now’s a great time to start. We usually get a positive response, it’s a lovely way to meet other Hackney Labour members and sometimes manage to recruit new people. We’ll be out on Monday 25th June from 5-7pm as to talk to commuters as they arrive home – locations to follow.
NHS 70th Birthday Demo
#OurNHS is a loved and cherished part of every community. Come out and celebrate with us on 30 June. Bring your family, your friends, your loved ones and anyone who cares about the future of healthcare in this country. To travel with other Hackney activists, meet at 11am outside Dalston Junction station.
Say yes to:
– A publicly owned NHS that is free for all
– Proper funding and proper staffing
– Support for our wonderful NHS workers
– World class services for every community
The NHS belongs to us. Access to healthcare is a human right. Our post-war generation created a National Health Service that delivered world class care to all on the basis of need.
For 70 years #ourNHS has set a shining example to the world of what can be achieved when we make the choice to look after the collective good. But #OurNHS is under attack. A decade of austerity, underfunding and top down reforms have stretched our health service to breaking point. Services are being cut and cancelled, hospitals and wards are closing, there are staffing shortages across every part of the system and increasing parts of our health service are being outsourced to private companies.
Never has there been a more urgent time in her 70 year history to stand up and defend what is yours. For what the last generation built. You have paid for it. You deserve it.
