Get organised! Join the march on parliament!
THE ANGER at the cuts, privatisation and closures threatened in the National Health Service shows no sign of slowdown. Last weekend, there were huge demonstrations in Huddersfield, Worthing, Huntingdon and a number of other towns and cities.
Most people on these protests want to see more action against the attempted destruction of the NHS, particularly from the trade union movement.
The TUC has organised a lobby of parliament on 1 November. The National Pensioners' Convention Greater London Region has called a feeder march to this lobby to show the anger and determination to fight back of the many campaigns across the country.
The number of local trade unions and anti-cuts campaigners sponsoring the march is growing rapidly. The latest examples include TGWU 1/372 branch, Manchester NUJ, Hackney UNISON and Knowsley UNISON.
If you support this initiative, contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information and leaflets. Help build a mass turnout on 1 November by booking transport to both the march and the lobby.
The 1 November march will assemble at 11.30am at Forum Magnum Square, London SE1 on London's South Bank.
It will go across Westminster Bridge, to join the lobby at parliament.
