We were there I think we numbered 13 but we were spread about 🙂 It was a really great event with applause from the crowd. Bill took these pictures.
Gilda Peterson, one of the organisers, said the response from the public was “fantastic”.
“It was one of the biggest demonstrations we’ve seen in Leeds for quite a few years,” she said. “People clapped as we went by and number of people joined us – even the police said they were surprised and pleased for us that so many people took part.”
The group is campaigning about what they call “the privatisation by stealth” of the NHS, the demoralisation of staff and lack of financial support.
Fellow campaigners from across Yorkshire, including Airedale, Huddersfield, Wakefield, Dewsbury, Sheffield and Harrogate joined protestors, as well as representative from trade unions and the Labour and Green parties.
