On Saturday 27 January we'll be holding our first street stall of 2018 outside the Guildhall on Market Square Cambridge, as part of a national day of action highlighting the multiple threats Brexit poses to the NHS. Please come along and join us!
Whether it's reduced funding due to slowing economic growth, the loss of vital staff from other EU member states, concerns about timely access to medicines and radiotherapy post-Brexit, and the ever looming danger that a desperate Government may sign a trade deal with the USA that leads to privatization of the NHS, Brexit threatens the future of an NHS that is already overstretched and under-resourced.
This day of action is being held in association with the European Movement.
If you would like to join us on the stall for an hour or two - and new volunteers are always very welcome - please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
We want to do more campaigning in other towns in our region, particularly those currently without active pro-EU groups, so if you would like us to organise a stall in your town we'd love to hear from you!
