Although Bromley Cuts Concern's blog here has been offline and without new posts this month, friends and supporters have been active out there in the real world. Here is an extract from a short report by Lynne Chamberlain, Secretary of Greenwich and Bexley Trades Union Council.
(On Tuesday July 24th) at the Old Bexley & Sidcup Labour Party HQ around 30 representatives of all the major local pro-NHS campaigns, CLPs and supporters, including the Greenwich & Bexley TUC, sat down to form and agree, in a spirit of unity, a co-ordinated campaign to protect our local hospitals. The campaign willl be called Save Our Local Hospitals and this is a major step forward in the fightback that will be essential if we are to stop our local hospitals being privatised or even worse.
A committee was formed and the meeting voted unanimously to support the Greenwich & Bexley TUC Save our Hospitals march from Woolwich town centre 1pm on Saturday September 15th 2012. Agreed by the council but exact details to be defined.
In addition Greenwich & Bexley TUC activists and Bromley Against the Cuts supporters have held two Save the NHS events meetings and taken hundreds of leaflets and postcards for public distribution among local residents and shoppers since the beginning of August.
