Silent Vigil To Protest At The Decimation Of Health Care Services In The North West

category sligo | worker & community struggles and protests | press release author Tuesday September 14, 2010 17:34author by Cancer Campaigner - SAVE OUR CANCER SERVICES-NORTHWEST. Report this post to the editors

Brian Cowen is visiting Sligo on Friday next the 17th to attend a Chamber dinner. A vigil is being organised to meet him and to demonstarte against the continued attack on our health services and health workers. If you are nearby come and join us for an hour of silent dignified protest.

SAVE OUR CANCER SERVICES-NW

Press Release

The Save Our Cancer Services campaign is satisfied that the present government has no intention of changing its disastrous policy regarding Sligo General Hospital and believes that for the services to be restored to the hospital a change of government is required and this will occur following the next general election.

Not only is the government destroying our cancer services but it now appears that they are determined to downgrade Sligo General and all healthcare services in the North West. The campaign wish to express disappointment that Sligo Chamber decided to invite Mr Cowen to Sligo under the present circumstances especially as they had fully supported the efforts to save the cancer services in the past which Mr Cowen’s government took away.

To mark the visit, a demonstration to show solidarity with Sligo General Hospital, and all hospitals in the North West region and their staff and to give clear notice that the campaign to have our cancer services restored to the region remains strong and focused, it is intended to hold a silent vigil at the Clarion on Friday night to coincide with the Chambers event, at which Mr Cowen will be guest, commencing at 7.00pm to run for approx 1 hour

We also intend to have a letter of protest handed to Mr Cowen to draw to his attention the failure of the Minister for Health to honour all the promises she made regarding the provision of a bus for patients travelling for radiotherapy, the promise that all follow-up care would remain at Sligo and the promise that a hardship fund would be made available for those with particular difficulties meeting transport costs, child care cost etc. during their treatment.

All are welcome to join with us in this silent vigil to demonstrate against the health cuts and to show support for all the staff working to provide healthcare in the region

Best of luck to our friends in Sligo and the northwest with their campaign, they have stuck at it and they will get their reward. We will send a group to stand with you on Friday night.

It is because the people of Ireland have stayed silent that Fianna Fail have brought our country to it's knees. They take no notice of any kind of protest because they know that they can do whatever they like and get away with it.
The health of the people is of no concern to them, if it was they would not have allowed Harney to ruin the health service for the interests of her wealthy friends.
WHY NOT CHANT SOME OF THE FIANNA FAIL SLOGANS FOR HIM RISE AND FOLLOW CHARLEY ( he is 6ft under) OR ALOT DONE AND MORE TO DO.

I could be wrong in what i am writing , i have been known to be wrong before .

However consider the facts , most people have gotten to the stage where they do not
seem to care about anybody but themselves , in their closed minds , and from past
experience's they too have gone without whilst nobody cared , it is probably to do with
the materialistic society in which we live & the old tried and trusted cliche comes to the
fore when the infamous sentence (s) are sprouted > ''Its nothing to do with me'' / '' its
none of my business '' , '' i dont want to get involved '' & so on .

We have become a Self preservation society , Like it or Lump it ; Sad but true .

There was a good turnout of local opposition councillors at the demo,however it was disappointing to note that Susan O keefe was conspicuous by her absence,she has been to the forefront of every photocall lately,any local dogfight or cat fight she's present.Fair play to Veronica Cawley,Marcella and Wee Jimmy McGarry who stood shoulder to shoulder with the protesters.
