Notts SOS health campaigning stall ran from 12-2pm in Market Square, Nottingham.
There was also an opportunity to sign a ‘Keep the NHS public’ petition. A couple of thousand leaflets were handed out. So many people stopped to express their concern at these changes.
Nottingham Picket of NHS ‘Listening Exercise’ evening
Protect Our NHS
Future events: Notts Uncut Emergency Operation
transform one of Nottingham's high street banks into a hospital
Saturday May 28 @ 12:00
Outside Boots, Parliament St, Nottingham
Notts Uncut are answering UK Uncuts call for a national day of action with a fantastic day of fun, frolics and street theatre!!
Boo the greedy bankers as they pocket more and more of the money which should be paying for our public services. Hiss Andrew Lansley as he takes apart the NHS piece by piece.
“The NHS will last as long as there are folk left to fight for it.”
- Nye Bevan, founder of the NHS
“Andrew Lansley. Greedy Andrew Lansley. Tosser.”

This is an emergency. The welfare state is in peril. Under the guise of ‘efficiency’ and ‘reform’, this government is plotting to cut the NHS and sell off what’s left. Andrew Lansley has claimed the government is in a ‘listening exercise’ about the proposed NHS ‘reforms’. But despite widespread outcry from doctors, nurses and the public the government isn’t listening to anyone apart from private healthcare lobbyists.
Let’s make Lansley listen. We want to keep our healthy NHS and fix our broken banking system. Whilst the NHS is being dismantled, the banks that caused this crisis in the first place have been left untouched. Reckless gambling, obscene bonuses and a global financial crisis are symptoms of a disease that requires a drastic intervention.
The banks are due a check-up. On Saturday May 28th, join UK Uncut’s Emergency Operation and transform one of Nottingham's high street banks into a hospital. Tell the government to leave our NHS alone; it’s the banks that are sick.
We may turn HSBC into a hospital or fill Natwest with nurses. We might have to get bandaged in Barclays or operate in RBS. Join Notts Uncut on the 28th and let's do our best for OUR NHS.
