If you are feeling downhearted about the current political situation, what better remedy than to come out on the streets next Tuesday July 5th to celebrate the NHS’s 68th birthday, urge people to resist cuts and privatisation and support the teachers strike to boot!
At 10.30am on Tuesday 5th we will be taking our banner or flags and messages of solidarity to the teachers’ rally outside Leeds City Art Gallery from where they will be marching to a meeting in City Varieties starting 11.30.
At 11.30 some members of Leeds Hospital Alert will be giving out NHS birthday cards in Briggate and
At 4.30 – 6pm we need as many people as possible outside LGI ( opposite Millennium Square) for KONP’s NHS birthday event. We will have bunting, banners, balloons, snakes ( !) and fliers to celebrate the NHS and urge people to resist cuts and privatisation and ensure that our free, fair and public NHS does have “Many Happy Returns” . Draft flier attached
Please also note that the next Leeds KONP meeting at 6.30 on Wednesday 6th July will be at 11 REGINA DRIVE, LEEDS, LS7 4LR. We will start with singing – for up to an hour, then have a brief meeting/discussion accompanied by a little refreshment – outdoors would be great but not relying on the weather.
All the best
Gilda for Leeds KONP
