NHS nurses and doctors will lead the march against Donald Trump’s visit to Britain on Tuesday in a show of defiance against US privatisation plans, protest organisers said today.
On Thursday Labour released documents it said were “proof” that the NHS was “up for sale” under a new trade deal between the US and Britain.
One of the protest organisers, Global Justice Now (GJN), which has also played a role in exposing the planned trade deal, said that the demonstration would show Mr Trump that “Britain is not for sale.”
GJN’s Nick Dearden said: “This week we discovered just how great a threat Donald Trump is to our NHS.
“That’s why Tuesday’s demonstration will be led by nurses and doctors — to symbolise the millions of people who will stand up for our health service against a US President who simply represents the biggest, greediest corporate interests in the world.”
The demonstration will assemble at Trafalgar Square, London, from 4pm onwards before finishing at Canada Gate, opposite Buckingham Palace, at 5.45pm.
