Sunday Mirror 17 Aug 2014 Women on the March Against NHS Privatisation
Fed up with the rapidly increasing privatisation of the NHS in England 46 Darlington women set off from Jarrow Town Hall, yesterday on a 300 mile protest march to Westminster. They were joined, soon after starting, by another 400 supporters. The march will mostly follow the route taken by the, “Jarrow” marchers in 1936. It is anticipated other protesters will swell the group as in marches South. It is expected the marchers will arrive in London on 6 September.
Scot’s have been alerted to the creeping privatisation of the NHS in England and are aware that a, “No” vote, in the referendum will bring about similar changes in Scotland since a UK government would not tolerate, for long, any challenges to the dogma Westminster is pursuing.
