The President of the United States, Donald Trump has tweeted about #OurNHS Demonstration this Saturday. The People’s Assembly Against Austerity and Health Campaigns Together have issued this response:

Dear Donald Trump

The NHS has existed since 1948 in the UK after the devastation of the second world war. The British population demanded the right to have access to healthcare which they deserve as human beings which is absolutely affordable when the right political decisions are made.

It has been a shining example to the world of what can be achieved when we put the needs of the collective good over the interests of a few wealthy individuals. Unfortunately, our current government have been persuaded to increasingly adopt policies which represent those of your Government, they have decided to move us more to an American-style system which is widely acknowledged to be one of the most expensive, inefficient and unjust healthcare systems in the world.

This is why our NHS is currently struggling and why leading Professors including Professor Stephen Hawking are bravely battling politicians who wish to turn it into a system like yours.

This is what our demonstration was about on Saturday 3rd Feb and tens of thousands of British people want to show their love for the principles of universal and comprehensive care free at the point of use, paid for through general taxation. We don’t agree with your divisive and incorrect rhetoric. No thanks.

Your sincerely

The People’s Assembly and Health Campaigns Together


Our NHS gives Trump a headache

Trump wrote: “The Democrats are pushing for Universal HealthCare while thousands of people are marching in the UK because their U system is going broke and not working. Dems want to greatly raise taxes for really bad and non-personal medical care. No thanks!”





60k demonstrated in London whilst events took place in 50 other towns and cities in England, Wales and North of Ireland


Please tell Trump to get his hands of #OurNHS!

  1. I do not think it was a mistake on Trumps part to get the facts wrong, i believe this plays into his & our current government plans. Hands off OURNHS.

  2. There are enough American voters, it seems, who will take Trump at his word and read no further. It’s even more important then, to publicly question his lack of clarity and misinformation and to bring it to world attention.

  3. This man is so ignorant and dangerous. He has no understanding of our NHS and its value to us. The American people must get rid of him. They have given him power which he is misusing. He should not enter this country because it would be an insult to our beliefs and standards.
