ACT UP celebrate the NHS – Join the 70th birthday party / ‘NHS – Death by a Thousand Cuts’ Film Premier

Saturday June 30th – Dress as Virgin Scare robber for the NHS Birthday Demo! / When -Saturday, June 30 at 12 PM – 3 PM / Where – Portland Place, London, W1B 1, United Kingdom – 

The NHS is in crisis, while presented as ‘business as usual’ the involvement of companies such as Virgin Care in the NHS strikes us as daylight robbery. Branson’s Virgin Group pay no corporation tax in the UK. They have however been awarded over 400 NHS contracts, worth over 2 billion pounds.

The NHS Anti-Swindle Team refuse to believe that your entitlement to healthcare should be dictated by the size of your bank balance, so rather than being alienated and powerless, let’s remember who it really belongs to and that nothing is irreversible. We are the majority and we will fight for the renationalisation of our health service. The NHS Anti Swindle Team want you to dress as a NHS robber, costumes will be provided for those who don’t own a stripy black and white top!

Tuesday July 3rd 7.30 – 10pm – “Dan Glass presents redfish’s grassroots report: ‘Death by a Thousand Cuts: The Great NHS Sell-Off’ – Film Preview, discussion panel and performance to celebrate the 70th anniversary of the NHS. facebook page here

Britain’s National Health Service, widely regarded as one of the finest public healthcare systems in the world, is under attack. The Conservative government has driven the NHS to the edge of ruin through chronic underfunding and repeated spending cuts. This is all part of a broader privatisation agenda designed to undermine public faith in state institutions, so they can be replaced with private sector alternatives.

To mark the 70th anniversary of the founding of the NHS, healthcare activist Dan Glass teamed up with redfish to present a grassroots report on how tax-shy profiteers are trying to seize control of public healthcare services and what we can do to stop them.”

Join us at the Redfish film premier of ‘Death by a Thousand Cuts – The NHS Sell-Off’ alongside key healthcare activists and performers to celebrate the 70th anniversary of the NHS and ‘Docs not Cops’ ‘Patients Not Passports’ campaign*. All donations go to ‘Docs Not Cops’ –
