Solidarity rally for the privatisation of the health care system

A solidarity rally will be held in Gorey to protest the privatisation of the health care system.

Cinnamon Blackmore, local People Before Profit representative, has called for the rally on Saturday, October 6, at 2 p.m., in Gorey Memorial Cross.

'We are fighting for a one tier system, one that provides care based on need and not on the size of your wallet,' said Ms Blackmore.

Ms Blackmore feels it's important to take direct action in Gorey on this.

'There is a national healthcare protest called by the Still Waiting campaign in Dublin on October 6, but we know how hard it is for parents and carers to get the time off,' she added.

Over the summer, Ms Blackmore held a meeting filled with parents and concerned locals that focused on the continuous attempts to run down the health service.
