Out on the streets to ‘Save our NHS’ in Crouch End
By Cara Bevington
Building on the great success of the national ‘Save our NHS’ day of action in February, 38 Degrees members took to the streets of Crouch End in north London on Saturday 28th March.
38 Degrees member Alex organised the stall and was joined by her granddaughter and 5 other local members. Together they gathered over 200 signatures for the massive national petition to ‘Save our NHS’. The petition calls on all candidates standing to be an MP in the May general election to do everything they can to protect the NHS, including:
- Stopping privatisation
- Making sure it has the funding it needs to provide high quality healthcare to everyone
- Protecting it from US health corporations by keeping the NHS out of TTIP
The group spoke to hundreds of people from across the Hornsey and Wood Green constituency about why the NHS is such a critical election issue. They had such a successful morning collecting signatures that the group ran out of petition sheets!
Want to get involved in future ‘Save our NHS’ actions? 38 Degrees members will be back out on the streets in Crouch End and Wood Green from 11am on Saturday 11 April building even more community support for this important campaign (there will be enough petition sheets for everyone this time!)
