999 CALL FOR THE NHS – THE PEOPLE’S MARCH FOR THE NHS – Day 16

peoples march sheffield 1Rehana, our National officer and the ‘DarloMums’ are now well into their Jarrow March to London.

Today is day 16 which they have walked from Leicester to Market Harborough.

When they reach London, they will have walked 300 miles to SAVE OUR NHS.

The March is to highlight the fact the NHS is being slowly privatized by stealth through the back door.

THIS IS OUR NHS, PAID FOR BY OUR NI CONTRIBUTIONS.  NOT FOR SALE AND NOT FOR PROFIT.

Nye Bevan said, THE Peoples March Sheffield 2NHS WILL ONLY LAST AS LONG AS THEIR ARE FOLK LEFT WITH THE FAITH TO FIGHT FOR IT.

Now is the time to fight, before it goes for good.

I had the honour of walking from them in the Sheffield to Chesterfield leg – Day 11.  The gang are an amazing bunch of folk, from all walks of life including a retired NHS consultant.  It wasn’t easy to walk the 15 miles and my legs hurt for days after, they are walking 300 miles for our NHS.

I am also updating via the GMB Union S35 Branch Sheffield Health page, which you can access from the home page here.

They will finish on Saturday 6th September with a Rally in Trafalgar Square.

Wish them luck and think of them.
