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

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?
