Local group 'Cornwall Anti Cuts Alliance' took part in a nationally organised day of action to support the NHS on Saturday. The theme for the day was 'Love your NHS' and was called by national group '999 Call for the NHS. The aim of the action was to raise awareness, show support and oppose privatisation. Several protestors came in costume and a giant inflatable heart  took centre stage. 'We have had massive support from  members of the public tooting their horns and waving to us' said Sue Farmer of Playing Place, Truro who dressed as 'Superman' for the event. 'We just want to make sure the issues stay in the public eye' added Sue, 'for example, since NHS cleaning services have been privatised here, there has been a massive rise in Complaints. Profit taking means worse services and worse pay and conditions for staff, and the NHS risks being cut to pieces'.
There will be another day of action on 28th Feb-this time in Camborne; called nationally  by 38 degrees. The group will meet at 12 noon in Camborne Town Square. Mebyon Kernow PPC Loveday Jenkin is a member of Cornwall Anti Cuts Coallition and endorses the protests adding 'grassroots action is an important way for the public to have their voices heard on the issues that matter to local people. We have had a great day and I will be attending again at the next event in Camborne'.
