NYC Joins Nationwide Healthcare Day Of Action ‘Our First Stand’
“Health Care is a Human Right, Fight, Fight, Fight!”
NYC joined the Our First Stand Rally with PNHP, HealthCare-Now, NYSNA, NNU and other allies on January 15th. On a brisk Sunday early afternoon, Democratic members of Congress, trade unions, senior groups, health care activists and all those who believe in economic and social justice joined nationwide to tell Republicans loudly and clearly: we won’t let you throw nearly 30 million people off of health insurance, make massive cuts to Medicaid and defund Planned Parenthood.
We created a short montage of the rally, and below you can find a link to NYS action to create a cusion in the absence of the repeal of the ACA underway by Republicans.
