Emergency NHS demo London 3 Feb – W Mids Unite transport arrangements

An emergency demonstration for the NHS has been organised to take place in London on Saturday 3 February in London:

The poster’s bloody, uncompromising design reflects the deadly seriousness of the plight of our NHS under the Tories – whose policies are driving nurses out of the NHS and preventing doctors from coming to this country to work in it. The NHS needs us to fight for it.

Union Unite is arranging transport from around the country for its members. As the West Midlands poster above shows, coaches will be leaving West Bromwich, Birmingham and Coventry and places can be booked by calling 0121 647 4832.

From other regions/unions? Put your arrangements in the comments and we’ll post those too.

More details on the demo can be found here.

  3. Let’s band together and give the Tory bastards a show of strength that they haven’t seen for many a year! But keep it in mind that one demo won’t do it, no more than putting a bunch of Xs on bits of paper when the ‘powers that be’ allow you to do so! Don’t forget that there are still too many Tory Lites in the present PLP and there’s still too many being selected by Labour in the South West who wouldn’t know a genuine Socialist policy if it got up and bit them! All they’re really into is getting elected so that they can become important and, despite what they may say, run Parliament in exactly the same anti-democratic way as it is run now i.e. as a club for the elite and not a democratic forum for the people! So, more than one show of mass strength needs to be shown and recall of all representatives in Parliament who go against the People (even if it is for our ‘own good’ – and ain’t it always?) needs to be on the agenda! Time to fight, and fight and fight again!
