Today several members from Defend Our NHS York travelled to Darlington to support their “999 Call for the NHS” rally. The rally was organised by Johanna Adams a local mother concerned about the changes in the NHS.
Joanna Adams (center), whose vision led to the event, gave an excellent opening address – you can read a great summary of her address here. It is important to note that this was Johanna’s maiden public address. I am sure we speak for all who listened that we hope there will be many more opportunities for her to speak.
Following Johanna, the list of speakers included: Rehana Azam – GMB NHS National Officer Chair; Natalie Bennett – Leader of The Green Party; Ian Mearns – Labour MP for Gateshead; Dr. Clive Peedell – Leader of the NHA Party and Steve Walker-Blogger and Political Researcher.
