This video is produced by north London Fight Racism! Fight Imperialism! as a record of our unremitting and principled campaign on the streets and in the communities against the plan for a sell-off at Whittington Hospital. The proposal, launched in January of this year, to sell-off £17 million worth of buildings, halve in-patient beds to 177 and cut jobs by 570 and put a cap on maternity services of 4,000 a year, has now been cancelled. In July the hospital board was forced to tell the local press that this original plan was ‘just and idea’. There can be no doubt that the mobilisation of local protest against the sell-off plans must have influenced this retreat which is to be seen as a victory for the people.
