A flash mob against Richard Branson will take place tomorrow outside the Virgin Media shop in Brixton at 2pm.
The action, organised by Lambeth Keep Our NHS Public and Flash Mob for the NHS, aims to let people know that “Richard Branson’s Virgin Care Ltd has taken over at least 279 NHS services, running them for profit, using our taxes,” as Gay Lee, secretary of Lambeth Keep Our NHS Public said.
“It’s all part of a government plot to privatise the NHS, sell it off, and eventually get rid of it altogether. Most people are unaware of this – and they need to know,” she added.
For this reason tomorrow they will sing anti-Virgin songs, collect a ‘penny for the NHS’ and give leaflets to shoppers, asking them to boycott the Virgin Media phone shop.
This action is part of ‘The Peoples’ Assembly, Bonfire of Austerity’.
