NHS Bloc at No to Trump demonstration
3rd December 2019 - 4:00 pm - 8:00 pm
On Tuesday 3 December, US President Donald Trump is coming to Britain for a summit of NATO leaders, with a reception at Buckingham Palace.
Trump’s government is one of the primary threats to our NHS. He let the cat out the bag during his visit earlier this year when he said the NHS is “on the table” in a proposed US-UK trade deal, with our health service potentially facing disastrous price hikes for basic life-saving medicines. His Health Secretary, Alex Azar, calls British patients “freeloaders” and claims that charging more to UK users of basic medicines will allow for lower prices for US patients.
A bloc of NHS workers and health campaigners will be joining the anti-Trump demonstration organised by a coalition of other groups, and marching at the head of the march to highlight the threat posed to our NHS by the Trump Administration.
4pm – Assemble on south of Trafalgar Square for speeches & music.
5pm – March leaves Trafalgar Square to Buckingham Palace via The Mall.
5.45pm – Arrives at Canada Gate opposite Buckingham Palace.
6pm – NATO reception begins.
7pm – R3 Soundsystem: Dance Music Against Trump at Trafalgar Square.
