Join the People's March to Save the NHS from Jarrow to London on 16 August 2014.
All groups can participate in the event in a number of ways; welcoming events, press conferences, accommodation, publicity and, of course, join the march!
The People's Assembly Against Austerity is proud to support this march called by mothers in the North East to Save the NHS.
Hundreds of marchers are expected to leave Jarrow, following the route of the famous unemployed workers in 1936, to march through towns and cities the length of England arriving at Parliament.
The 999 Jarrow to London march for our NHS has already had a blitz of publicity locally and regionally. The Nottingham Post reports that hundreds of mums are expected to march through Notts with them and the People's Assembly will support them throughout their protest.
Their march is to raise awareness of, and opposition to, the private take over of our health service. Organiser Joanna Adams said
'We the ordinary people who the NHS takes care of, who can't afford the private healthcare...we are the people and we are going to march'.
The march will go through a number of towns where there are People's Assembly groups and we will have more precise dates soon. See the 999 March for our NHS website for the most up to date info.
