HEALTH campaigners will retrace the steps of the original Jarrow Marchers as part of their fight to protect the NHS.
Several hundred people are expected to take part in a mass rally outside Jarrow Town Hall on Saturday, August 16, before a group of NHS campaigners head off on the 300-mile march to London.
Evoking memories of the famous 1936 Jarrow Crusade, when 200 jobless men marched from the town to Westminster to demand work, the event is billed as The People’s March for the NHS, with health protesters aiming to cover up to 16 miles a day, reaching the capital on September 6.
If you are able to join the march at any point then please do. Show your support for the NHS, show this Government that we are against their plans to privatise it and that it is our most prized, and best loved, national asset.
