Green Party Health Spokesperson Larry Sanders speaking on how we get out of the coronavirus crisis and how this relates to Oxford.
The coronavirus pandemic is the biggest health emergency since the Spanish Flu. It's put more strain on our NHS than ever before - and the incredible work of our doctors, nurses and NHS staff have been vital in protecting the public.
But decades of privatisation and cuts has meant the NHS is fighting the crisis with one hand tied behind its back. Crucial funding is leaking out of the system into the pockets of private companies. Proper PPE hasn't been getting to frontline workers. And the government has used this crisis to funnel more and more contracts to their friends in the private sector.
If we're going to get out of this crisis, get out of lockdown safely, and hug our loved ones again, we need a new approach.
Join East Oxford campaigners and councillors Dick Wolff, Rosie Rawle and Chris Jarvis for a talk from Green Party Health Spokesperson Larry Sanders on August 14.
Larry - the brother of former US Presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders - will be speaking on how we get out of the crisis and how this should be done in Oxford.
