EVENT - Singing Flash Mob - Friday February 15th - Kings X station


A group of Keep Our NHS Public (KONP) activists and Velvet Fist, a feminist and socialist choir, together with members of various other socialist choirs, are organising a singing flash mob event on Friday 15 Feb at 5.45pm at Kings Cross station in the new (departures) foyer

11 February 2013

The singing will last for about an hour and we warmly invite you to join in if you enjoy singing (and even if you don't - we need people to give out leaflets).

The idea is to try a new and different way of publicising what is happening to the NHS with the coming of the Health and Social Care Act and cuts to the service.

We will start with a a couple of instruments and few singers, positioned in strategic places, gradually building up numbers of people singing until the whole of Kings Cross is ringing to the sounds of a big choir singing about the NHS and privatisation - or that's the plan anyway! There should be lots of commuters and other passengers there who will hopefully join in or at least sit up and take note....

Here's a great example from Madrid.

If the event's successful we can repeat it on other occasions and with other songs ....

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?
