IT'S NOW OR NEVER FOR SALFORD BABIES!
Demonstrate Against The Closure of Hope Maternity Unit
Wednesday 1st December 2010
Meet 9:30am outside Piccadilly Station in Manchester
"Disgusting…Appalling…Pathetic…An insult to the people of Salford"
55,000 Salford people have signed petitions against the closure of Hope Maternity Unit, yet the health authorities have ignored a whole city's pleas for babies to be born here.
The final decision on Hope's future is being made on Wednesday morning where it's being recommended that the closure goes ahead. The public has been banned from that meeting. Now former Salford MP, Ian Stewart, is urging everyone in the city to protest. He says…
"Every Salford citizen should be mobilising, voicing their opinion and doing something about this. If the people of Salford don't act with their feet and their voices this will be lost…We should do something, not just talk about it…Speak up for it! Act for it! Or lose it!"
