EVENT - Hunt the Hunt, Saturday 15 June 10am-8pm


Join health campaigners and workers as they Hunt for Jeremy Hunt in his South West Surrey constituency. Transport from London available through Unite the Union.

10 June 2013

Jeremy Hunt, Secretary of State for Health, has been keeping a very low profile as hospitals and NHS services close units and sell off services. 

Join campaigners and health workers as they search the streets of Farnham for the elusive health secretary, giving out posters and flyers and petitioning against the closures of local hospital services and the privatisation of the NHS. Watch out for fun, balloons, and perhaps a surprise from some London drama students before everyone comes together for a big demonstration in the heart of Hunt’s constituency...

For more information, flyers, and if you want transport from London, see the Unite event page here or the Save Lewisham Hospital campaign page here

Who's getting rich from COVID-19?

Boris Johnson's government stands accused of 'COVID cronyism', after handing out staggering sums of money to controversial private firms to fight COVID-19. Often the terms of these deals are kept secret, with no value-for-money checks or penalties for repeated failures which cost lives. And many major contracts have gone directly to key Tory donors and allies – without competition.

As COVID rates across the country surge, how can we hold our leaders accountable? Meet the lawyers, journalists and politicians leading the charge in our free live discussion on Thursday 1 October at 5pm UK time.
