Ken Loach screening at Bethnal Green Save NHS meeting
A free screening of award-winning film director Ken Loach’s ‘Spirit of 45’ is being shown on Monday evening as part of a discussion about the threat to the NHS from privitisation.
The event at St Peter’s Church Hall, Warner Place, Bethnal Green, is organised by Tower Hamlets branch of “Keep Our NHS Public.”
Campaigner Stephanie Clark says:”Today the NHS is facing the biggest threat in its history.
“A & E closures and out of hours scandals have been in the news. But how many people are aware that, bit by bit, the NHS is being privatised?
“Or that soon it may be turned into an insurance-based system, as found in the USA?”
