Health Care Is A Human Right!
‘New Mexico’s Medicare 4 All Rally’
Our Revolution New Mexico and PDA of Central New Mexico Team Up to Co-Sponsor this Solidarity Rally
This is the New Mexico sister rally, in support of the national "Millions Marching For Medicare 4 All" which is in D.C., on the same date, July 24th. New Mexico’s rally is being co-hosted by Our Revolution New Mexico & PDA of Central New Mexico in special collaboration with Albuquerque City Council Members, Pat Davis and Diane Gibson.
When: July 24th, 6pm - 8pm
Where: Civic Plaza, Albuquerque, New Mexico
New Mexico’s Medicare 4 All Rally will be a strong gathering of diverse voices unified under one reality; Healthcare is a basic human right, not a privilege for the select few!
With our nation’s president and majority leaders in the Congress and Senate, determined to strip Americans of their healthcare, while exempting themselves, at taxpayer expense, it is necessary to unify for health security through an improved system of Medicare for All. Congressional Majority Leader, Paul Ryan seeks to gut Medicaid, and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell intends to repeal the Affordable Care Act, without a humane replacement, only to provide huge tax cuts to the wealthy. It is imperative that we fight this cruel and irresponsible action to deliver this strong demand to all our elected public servants and current candidates for public office. “We will not go back to the days of ‘impossible access’ or bankrupting medical costs of ‘pre-existing conditions’. We demand #Medicare4All!”
