On Saturday 21 January 2017 we were delighted to be joined by Shadow Chancellor John McDonnell MP for the official opening of our office in Dorset Street, before heading back to stalls across Brighton for more leafleting and petitioning as part of Labour’s Care For The NHS campaign . You can still sign our petition calling on the Tories to give the NHS and social care the funding they deserve. #CarefortheNHS
In the morning John McDonnell MP and local Labour Party members joined Sussex Defend the NHS, socialists, trades unionists and NHS campaigners as a big march made its way from the Royal Sussex County Hospital to a rally outside Brighton station in defence of our NHS.
Labour Party members and other NHS campaigners were marching all over the country on a national day of action to highlight the crisis of Tory neglect and underfunding of the NHS and social care.
At the station, John urged everyone to show absolute determination, courage and solidarity with NHS staff, in campaigning to #SaveOurNHS.
Thank you to everyone who joined us for this fantastic day of action.
