Vigils against the NHS Bill across the UK

This Monday 19 March at 8pm, there will be holding a series of coordinated NHS Vigils, across the UK to draw attention to the importance of halting the Tory NHS Bill. Everyone interested in peacefully registering their opposition to the NHS Bill is welcome to attend (DETAILS BELOW).

The purpose of the meetings is to demonstrate to the House of Lords peers, the night before their crucial vote on the NHS, that people do not want this bill to become law. Only 14% of UK voters in the last YouGov poll actually wanted the NHS Bill to succeed. Two thirds of NHS workers also think the Bill will make things worse. We hope that peers look favourably upon the peaceful nature of the gatherings and give Lord Owen’s amendment, to halt the NHS Bill until the NHS Risk Register is published, the support it deserves.

    this goverment never wanted the nhs in the first place when labour announsed it was gonna bring it in,and opposed it,and have done everything possible to try and make it so its dosnt give value fa money,so theyve got an argument to privatise it,the tories have never given the majority of this country anything other than makin em pay more,labour for the many,tories for the few,and liberal for those undecided.
