EVENT
14 May 2013

Join the protest - Saturday 18 May, assembling at Jubilee Gardens at 12 noon.

There will also be feeder groups meeting at local underground stations, see here for details.

This demonstration has been called by a broad coalition of Save Our Hospital campaigns, London residents, medical staff, and trade unions to raise the alarm about planned closures and privatisation across the capital. A&E departments, maternity departments, and thousands of hospital beds are threatened.

 

How is the British police crackdown bill a threat to democracy?

The Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill creates new stop-and-search powers, allows the police to put more conditions on protests, and threatens Gypsy and Traveller rights to roam.

It's been met with mass protests from Bristol to Belfast. Is this bill a threat to our human rights – and is there any stopping it now?
