Jarrow Crusade to save the NHS

This weekend, a group of Mums from Darlington will begin a March from Jarrow to Parliament, to send a message of outrage at the attacks this Government are making to our National Health Service.
Over three weeks, joined by other campaigners on the way, they’ll march more than 300 miles – because they, like so many of us, believe that our NHS is precious, and that we have to fight for it.
This Tory-led Government wasted £3billion on a top-down reorganisation of the NHS that was opposed by patients and health professionals alike. And now we’re seeing the consequences.
That’s why we’re launching a new campaign today, to take back our NHS. Will you add your name?

This campaign is being backed by the pro-Labour "unionstogether" campaign. Labour have betrayed us again and again and again. The privatisation orgy of the Tories was started by New Labour. They have torn up all the principles of socialism and they can no more be relied on to defend the NHS than any other capitalist party.

We need campaigns like this. We also need an independent working-class voice in the election. We have to defend the NHS against the Tories, against the Liberals and against the Labour Traitors.

The Trade Union and Socialist Coalition (TUSC) founded by Bob Crow is a step in that direction.
