Chingford and Woodford Green – you can help the NHS!

From 38 Degrees…

Gloria who lives in Chingford and Woodford Green is meeting next Saturday, the 30th August, to spread the word about the sinister EU-US trade deal TTIP. Are you free?

Joining in on the day is easy. As soon as you sign up using the link below, you’ll be able to see the plans in Chingford and Woodford Green and chat to the rest of your group. So will you join in with Gloria and give an hour or two on Saturday 30th August? Please sign up now to make sure the office team has time to send you a pack of flyers.

If you aren’t able to join the action please donate here to help fund the materials.

Here’s a map of your area and the volunteers who have signed up so far. The plan is simple. The link takes you to a page on the 38 Degrees website where you can connect with Gloria near you. Once you’ve clicked the link you’ll need to pop in a few details, and then you can start making plans with the other 38 Degrees members in your area.

The 38 Degrees office team will send you a pack. It’ll include a badge, a poster, bumper stickers, and leaflets for you to hand out. The leaflets explain the dangers of the trade deal in plain English and lets people know how they can take action too.

Already, over 120,000 38 Degrees members have signed a petition against TTIP. There are lots of parts of the deal to worry about. It’ll make privatisation of our services like the NHS and National Rail irreversible. It’ll also allow big corporations to sue our government if they make changes to the law that affect the businesses’ profits – like raising the minimum wage. [1]

The government is not going to have a sudden change of heart on TTIP unless they’re bombarded with questions and opposition. The only way we can do this is through people power – making sure as many of us as possible know about it. Whatever you can do to raise awareness of TTIP where you live will help.

So can you spare an hour or two and join thousands of 38 Degrees members to campaign against TTIP?
