Lords: please pass the NHS protection amendment IN TWO WEEKS!
Today, we are launching our week-long push to get the House of Lords to pass the NHS protection amendment - they'll be voting on the Trade Bill in the next two weeks we think!
The goal of the #DearHouseOfLords week is to have a week of campaigning, including phone-banking sessions, so that we're in their ears and minds when they go in for that vote. Sign up to help phone peers this week on Tuesday 27th, Wednesday 28th, or next week on Tuesday 3rd November and Wednesday 4th.
The Day of Action over the weekend put the government on notice that we will not accept our NHS being sold off to the US healthcare and pharmaceutical industries. Now we're in a good position to get the House of Lords to pass the NHS amendment.
We need you to make a video this week and send a message to the House of Lords.
How to make your video today - in a few easy steps!
Step 1: Record a 15-30secs selfie-video - start by saying: "Dear House of Lords, please pass the NHS protection amendment because..."
Step 2: Speak from the heart about why the NHS matters to you; tell your NHS story. It doesn't have to be expert - your voice is what matters!
If you don’t have a social media account, send your video to firstname.lastname@example.org. And if you can’t make a video, send us a quote of no more than 35 words, with your full name and where you live. We will share it on our social media account.
We have something for everyone to do because we need all hands on deck in this week-long campaign.
