Rallies for Single-Payer in 50+ Cities 5/30

by Chris Sturr | May 29, 2009

From Healthcare Now!—important rallies this weekend, in a city near you (visit the website for a long list of cities and events–most are on Saturday):

May 30th: National Day of Action
Nationwide Rallies for Improved Medicare for All

Join thousands of single-payer supporters in a nationwide week of action to support improved Medicare for all (HR 676). Single-payer activists will be gathering all over the country to say, “Healthcare, yes; Insurance companies, no,” and to show solidarity with demonstrations at the AHIP (American Health Insurance Plans, a private health insurance lobby) conference in San Diego.

If an action isn’t already in your city, plan your own day of action! It can be a town hall meeting, demonstration in front of a local insurance company, film showing, vigil, or your own unique idea. Let us know what you’d like to start planning by contacting info@healthcare-now.org.

47 million Americans are uninsured. Private insurance rates are rising faster than inflation and our incomes. By 2025 the cost of private health insurance will exceed our projected income.
