TIME TO GET INVOLVED #TORIESOUT NOW
During this election campaign it's vital that we keep reminding everyone that it's the Tories who are to blame for the crisis in education and the NHS. With the NHS deficit at a record high and the Tories planning more privatisation, this could be the last days of the NHS unless we act now.
Bring the #OurNHS Roadshow to your area!
We're calling on all People's Assembly activists and supporters to set up NHS Roadshow events in your area, especially if it's a key marginal in the election, and are asking for events to be organised right up until election day on 8th June.
An NHS Roadshow event can be anything you like, call a rally, a meeting or even a protest, anything to get the message out!
Here's are some of the events we've got coming up already:
- Tooting - Tuesday 16 May - Public Meeting
- Bristol - Thursday 18 May - Public Meeting
- Morden - Monday 22 May - Public Meeting
- Colne Valley - Wednesday 24 May - NHS Debate

WEDNESDAY 5 JULY - WISH #OURNHS A HAPPY BIRTHDAY
#OurNHS Big Birthday Bash - 1st & 5th July 2017
Birthday wish list: No Cuts | No Closures | No Privatisation
The People's Assembly and Health Campaigns Together, the organisers of the massive #OurNHS demonstration, which saw 250,000 people on the streets of London on Saturday 4 March, are once again teaming up to celebrate the birthday of the NHS.
We will be organising street parties, festivals and protests as part of the #OurNHS Big Birthday Bash!
Times are tough right now: underfunding, cuts, closures of vital services, increased privatisation - all being sped up by the secretive Sustainability & Transformation Plans (STPs). NHS staff are facing attacks on their pay and conditions whilst working in teams with dangerous staff shortages. The greatest gift for our NHS on it's birthday is for the government to act now for a fully funded, publicly owned, publicly run NHS and social care service. The events across the country on 1 and 5 July will help to highlight these threats. Let's also celebrate our health service and say thank you to the thousands of dedicated NHS staff that look after us.
We want to transform Britain into a giant street party on the Sat 1 July 2017. Let's fill the streets and reflect the service the NHS has provided to each and every one of us for almost 70 years. We're asking everyone to put on a street party where they live. Get street performers, musicians, speakers, games, food and everyone you know down there.

“How dare the Tories come to our city?! A city annihilated by their cuts.” was how actor and friend of the People's Assembly Maxine Peake put it last year. 2017 is the time to remind the Tories they are still not welcome in this great city.
Last year the People's Assembly launched it's Take Back Manchester initiative which brought tens of thousands on to the streets of Manchester to say the Tories aren't welcome, and end austerity now.
We'll be calling a National Demonstration in the city to let them know that even though David Cameron is gone, George Osborne is no longer chancellor we won't rest until we have chased them out of office...
Put the date in the diary and join us to help us chase the Tories out of Manchester.
For a taste of some of the things we put on in 2015 take a look here.
