Emma Rees and Adam Klug seek British volunteers to back free healthcare campaign
Two of the founders of the leftwing pressure group Momentum are to launch a campaign asking British volunteers to back a campaign for free healthcare in the US by telling Americans about the benefits of the NHS.
The idea is to sign up activists who are prepared to talk up the British healthcare system as a good example of how a campaign such as “National Medicare For All” in the US would work. It comes as part of a campaign by America’s National Nurses United union.
Emma Rees, one of the original four Momentum organisers, said: “We are looking for people who want to help in the fight to build a public healthcare system in the US – they may well be people who are also concerned that it is under threat in the UK.”
