This Mayday: film night & event to fight for Lewisham Hospital

As government pushes through the cut to Lewisham hospital, we need to meet them with a campaign of effective collective resistance

The campaign to save the hospital has done a fantastic job at
showing the government how unpopular Kershaw’s plans are, but the whole campaign depends upon the government being reasonable and listening to people’s concerns. How likely is that?

Hunt has proved that he will not listen to reasoned argument. His department have made a mockery of their own ‘consultation’ process. The only thing left to do is take action – to prove that cuts at the hospital are simply not an option we will accept.

How can we make this happen?

Solidarity Federation once again invites you to a screening of “Running Out of Patience” – a documentary on the 1986 Victoria nurses’ strike in Australia.

The film will be followed by a discussion session aiming to assess how we can put these ideas of direct action into practice to save Lewisham A&E and end this disgraceful attack on the NHS.
