Saturday 3 February – MIGRANTS MAKE OUR NHS! – Join the Leeds Stand Up to Racism bloc on Leeds ‘NHS in Crisis: Fix it Now’ march on Sat 3 February

On Saturday February 3rd meet at 12.30 by the mini roundabout outside Jubilee Wing / A&E at LGI for the nation-wide day of protest.

Join the Leeds Stand Up to Racism bloc to send the message – blame cuts and austerity not migrants for the NHS crisis.

The NHS is in crisis. The press and politicians tell us it’s migrants who are to blame. We’re told that ‘health tourism’ and immigrants are draining the NHS. The reality is it’s Tory cuts and austerity that have decimated our health service.  Migrants make the NHS. Since its inception, migrant workers have played a crucial role in the health service as doctors, workers, nurses, cleaners and more.

Leeds Stand Up To Racism Action Meeting – Tuesday 6 February 6.30pm, Laidlaw Library café, Woodhouse Lane – all welcome
