"The CAMarathon" - 5th and 6th July 2013

EVENT

Friday and Saturday 5th/6th July 2013

The “CAMarathon” – London-Witney 65 mile ultra-marathon to mark the 65th anniversary of the NHS

EVENT
8 April 2013

To mark the 65th birthday of the NHS and highlight the role of David Cameron and the Conservative party in abolishing the NHS, our co-leader Dr Clive Peedell and colleague Dr David Wilson will be running again! This time they aim to run 65 miles to mark the 65 years of the NHS, from the Department of Health at Richmond House, London, to David Cameron’s constituency in Witney.

They will be dressed as undertakers, wearing Cameron and Clegg masks, and will lead a Hearse containing the coffin of the NHS all the way to David Cameron’s constituency of Witney, where the coffin will be buried in a special ceremony followed by a rally and speeches from leading NHS campaigners.

Once again, National Health Action Party supporters will be asked to leaflet the entire constituency of Witney, to inform Mr Cameron’s constituents about what the Conservatives have done to the NHS.

Sign the petition: save our Freedom of Information

The UK government is running a secretive unit inside Michael Gove’s Cabinet Office that’s accused of ‘blacklisting’ journalists and hiding ‘sensitive’ information from the public. Experts say they’re breaking the law – and it’s an assault on our right to know what our government is doing.

We’re not going to let it stand. We’re launching a legal battle – but we also need a huge public outcry, showing that thousands back our call for transparency. Will you add your name?
