Donald Trump has caused a storm of outrage with his plans to put the NHS “on the table” in a predatory trade deal with US private healthcare interests. Over 200,000 people in 24 hours have signed a petition initiated by Keep Our NHS Public member Dr Sonia Adesara, calling on the government not to offer up NHS services to the private US interests represented by Trump.
But signing a petition is just a start.
At KONP we believe that the long-term drive to privatise and carve up NHS services can only be halted by sustained campaigning at local and national level, bringing pressure to bear on politicians through mass public protest from patients, health workers and members of the public.
We’re clear that we want Donald Trump nowhere near our NHS. But Keep Our NHS Public doesn’t just want to stop one potential Transatlantic sell-off. We won’t rest until our NHS is fully back in public hands – free for all, forever!
We’ve also put together: FIVE QUICK THINGS YOU CAN DO TO HELP
The main thing though of course is we want to grow our campaign into a mass movement. If you agree with our vision, join KONP today! Membership can cost as little as £7.50 per year, and you’ll be joining a nationwide community of health workers with enormous skill, knowledge and determination, who work around a range of issues, from the closure of local hospital facilities through to racist immigration checks in NHS services.
We don’t only want to stop one potential Transatlantic sell-off. We won’t rest until our NHS is fully back in public hands – free for all, forever!
Another way you can support is by making a donation. Unlike the other side, we don’t have big corporate finance or professional lobbying firms to fight our corner – only millions of ordinary people who love and care for our NHS. Making a one-off or, even better, a regular donation to KONP directly helps us campaign in defence of NHS services.
