People flocked to our Falmouth Labour stall throughout the morning for the National Campaign Day for Health & Social Care on Saturday 21 January to challenge the Tory government treatment of the NHS. Placards and petitions (around 500 signatures) were shared and commitments were made to join our local campaign. Concerns were voiced about a rumoured sell-off of Falmouth Hospital. Stories were told about the highly valued NHS staff and disgust expressed at privatisation and profits.
It is clear that the people of Falmouth, Penryn and the surrounding area are not prepared to sit by and wait for our precious Health Service to be dismantled.
The struggle will go on and we will continue to demonstrate. Leafleting door to door will be ongoing in all our wards, combined with introducing our new candidates for local council elections. We have many supporters now who are working hard and we welcome all who wish to join us to fight for the NHS and other public services that we desperately need.
Please contact us for information to share and ideas for action.
