There are two big demos coming up in London, with coaches organised from Manchester.
NHS still underfunded – 30th June
The NHS remains underfunded and over-stretched despite the increased money announced over the weekend, and the cutbacks and privatisation are set to continue. This statement by Keep Our NHS Public explains more.
So we’re going ahead with our national demonstration on Saturday 30 June “NHS at 70: free for everyone forever” and we need you to come with us! The demonstration is in London, it’ll be wholly peaceful, and we’ve got a coach going from Manchester to/from it as with previous protests. If you’d like to come, get back to me for details, and if you or your organisation can donate to the coach costs to help subsidise the low-income discounted rates, then likewise please contact me so we can talk details.

Oppose Trump – 13th July (4th July, banner making)
When Donald Trump was first elected, people were horrified. When he brought in his ‘Muslim ban’ tens of thousands of people protested at very short notice. But over a year on, there’s a danger that Trump’s hateful politics become the new normal.
We are organising a return coach for anyone wishing to attend the Carnival of Resistance in London, on the American President’s visit to Britain.
– Bus Leaves 7:30AM and returns 11:00PM on the same day
– Banner making session held at Partisan Collective on July 4th from 6-9PM: There will be cake!
– Walking protest starts at 2PM outside the BBC building in Portland Place
– 5-7PM Rally
– 8PM Leave London
Unwaged – £15
Waged – £30
Solidarity rate – £35
Global Justice Now Youth Network will specifically protest Donald Trump’s promise to force feed us chlorine chicken through his secretive, proposed trade deal with the UK. We plan to dress up as chickens and hold a chicken welfare protest demanding that their rights be protected. Anyone joining will be able to take part in the demo and banner making sessions, should you wish!
This is a fun event and first time activists, as well as seasoned organisations, we encourage to join us!
