The People’s March, launched on Mother’s Day 2014, which already has more than 500 participants signed up, will cover about 300 miles from Jarrow to Westminster. It is a grassroots, non-party-affiliated initiative, and the organisers hope that it will be one of the biggest mobilisations of people across England in defence of the NHS. From modest beginnings, the #darlomums have won the support of the GMB union and NHS campaigning groups nationally, such as Keep Our NHS Public.
They are planning the march to start on 16 August and arrive in London on 6 September.
