National Health Action Party MEP candidate and East Londoner Andrew Sharp is calling on his fellow East Londoners to join the fight for the NHS.
In a letter to NHAP supporters this week, Andrew Sharp said, “we really need your help. NHAP is still a new party and we urgently need to get the word out that we are here to protect and improve our NHS. We want people to vote for us and the NHS in May. We are gaining support quickly but with the elections less than 6 weeks away time is not on our side.
How can you help? We need you to get personally involved:
Join the Waltham Forest local group
If we have enough people from different areas we can expand it to become the East London group. Please email me at NHAPartyWF@gmail.com.
We need more people out on the streets, leafleting and talking to people about what we are trying to achieve. When I’m out campaigning I find people are eager to support us, relieved that “finally somebody is doing something sensible about the NHS” and want to find out more.
The Waltham Forest group is not big enough to do this on its own. Many of us work full time so we target our campaigning for maximum impact in a short space of time. This may be an hour on the way to work or on the way home, or a little longer at weekends – although there’s no pressure to stay for the duration. If you can help at just one of these sessions every week you’ll be making a difference.
There are various other ways you can help NHA to save the NHS.
Follow us on Twitter @NHA_WF and spread the word. We’ll get an East London Facebook page up and running soon.
Stick Up for the NHS!
Put up the election poster in your windows. Get busy with those ‘Stick Up for the NHS’ stickers – let’s decorate East London!
If all this has got you in the mood and you are asking, “when do I start?” then be outside the Royal London Hospital at 5pm on Friday 25th April and/or outside Whitechapel tube at 1pm on Saturday 26th April. If you are happy to do so then please let us know your mobile number so we can confirm with you that you’ll be there.”
The European election will be held on 22nd May. You can learn more about the National Health Action Party and our election campaign here.
