Join Stroud Against the Cuts at the national ‘Save Our NHS’ protest march against government cuts and privatisation in Manchester on Sunday 29th September.

A coach is leaving Merrywalks bus station at 8.30am on Sunday (please arrive by 8.15am at the latest so we can leave on time. We will not be able to wait for you as same coach is picking up from Pulman Court in Gloucester at 9am). Phone Steve Hunter on 07799 812633 or Sue Powell on 07947 632 437 As Soon As Possible to book your seat. More details below...

The ‘Save Our NHS’ protest will highlight the impact of huge job losses and spending cuts across the health service, as well as the way in which private companies – many of whom are also Conservative Party donors – are taking over our NHS. The demonstration will also raise concerns about the wider effect of the government’s policies.

Please do as many of the following as possible this week:

  1. Book your seat on the coach if you can attend. The coach will leave Merrywalks bus station at 8.30am on Sunday and is FREE. We will be asking those who can afford it to make donations to cover costs and for us to campaign, but if you cannot afford to make a donation you are still more than welcome – no-one will be turned away for lack of funds. Phone Steve Hunter on 07799 812633 or Sue Powell on 07947 632 437 ASAP to book your seat.The organisers are asking people to dress up and/or bring things that will make a noise (see NHS 299 back.jpg, attached). We will have a few vuvezelas etc, but please bring what you can.
  2. Pass this information on to friends and family - and let them know there are also coaches from Gloucester, Swindon, Bristol, and all around the country (click on the appropriate area of the map)
  3. If you use twitter, retweet this tweet and/or send versions of it to other people on twitter.
