#SavetheWhittington update – 24 April, Day of Action in #Islington

The Day of Action is almost upon us. We are hoping that EVERYONE feels that they can do something to stop these awful cuts. If you are at work you could go to your surgery or local school before you have to leave for work and wear your mask and tell people about the dreadful cuts at our local hospital and the effect that privatisation is having on the NHS – ie cuts across the country and the selling off of our NHS.

You can take cards and tell people about about the all London demo on 18th May, which links up action across the various London Hospitals. We are far stronger if we join together.

Please let us know what you will be doing and where.

You can get cards and masks from the Whittington Community Centre in Yerbury Road. Or email, defendwhittington@gmail.com

These are the activities we know about:

  • 8.15 Goodinge Health Centre
  • Something at St Johns Way Surgery
  • Protests at Hungerford School NUT and GMB, Highbury Grove School and Islington Sixth Form Centre
  • Protest at Highbury Grove School
  • 12.?? Sing 4 the Whitt to rally and after rally
