Hundreds of households across Thurrock will take a collective stand against the irreversible the sell-off of their health services to America by raising Cameron & Hunt Estate Agency boards with the clear message to veto the NHS from the EU US trade deal called TTIP.
The collective action is the continuation of a growing nationwide movement by the People’s NHS across thousands of households throughout England, Scotland and Wales.
Rows of houses in streets across Thurrock will have estate agency style signs outside calling for Cameron & Hunt Estate Agents to stop the sale.
A spokesperson said: "The UK’s entire health system is now up for sale because of the coalition government’s Health and Social Care Act. Since 2012 almost 70 per cent of NHS contracts put up for sale have gone to the private sector.
"The Tories won’t stop there, they want to make the sell-off irreversible through a trade deal called TTIP. But David Cameron did not tell us this sell-off was being planned when he was out campaigning during the 2010 general election campaign.
"The action is a strong message to Jackie Doyle-Price MP for Thurrock that her constituents oppose the Tory agenda to hand our NHS to the profit driven companies.
"The deal, known as TTIP, is being negotiated behind the closed doors, between the EU and the United States. It’s the biggest bilateral trade deal ever negotiated and threatens to make the sell-off of the NHS irreversible by giving the profits of corporations precedence over national lawmakers. TTIP could give US multinationals, or any firm with American investors, new rights to sue the UK government if it ever tried to take privatised health services back into public hands".
