Selection of some major events from the past

2015 - Hackney Empire played host to a fundraising NHS comedy extravaganza. Comedians and celebrities gathered to both celebrate and support the NHS. We were guests of honour along with other campaigners and NHS Staff who are still fighting to save our health service.

 

NHS IN STITCHES

2016 - Together with over twenty local and regional campaign groups we organised two meetings with then Shadow Health Secretary Heidi Alexander and John McDonnell.

 

In the process we presented evidence from all over the country that bore witness to the damage being done by privatisation.

HEALTH SELECT COMMITTEE DUBIOUS IN ACTIONS

Cross Party Health Select Committee seemed to be ignoring the obvious in 2018. We felt we had to ask "Democracy, what Democracy?"

Campaigners quickly rallied together when we understood the full impact of the STPs.

GLORIA & ALEXANDRA

Party politics is driving the country to ruin- allegiances overriding common sense and moral duty. Gloria and Alexandra are two former Tory party supporters who have turned away from party politics.

REBUTTALS & ALLEGATIONS

Politics has been a confusing and emotionally charged arena over the last 5 years.

 

And we have found ourselves (despite best efforts) embedded and embroiled in the dirty game. This is one such incident where we were accused - along with other campaigners - of bbigg a rogue lefty group planting dangerous seeds in the Labour party...
