I am attending the 2909 demo on the 29 September because I feel very strongly about government destruction and dismantling of the NHS.
A strong message needs to be sent in a way that the government cannot ignore and that is by this mass demonstration in Manchester at their conference.
There are still many people who are unaware that the NHS they know and take for granted soon will be no more unless firm action is taken.
Strength of feeling, unity of all the unions on this demonstration will raise public awareness and get the message across to the government ‘HANDS OFF OUR NHS’.
