Today – ‘Life or Debt’ – A Day of Free Healthcare and Education

Join Strike Debt, Healthcare for the 99%, Occupy Town Square, and MANY others on March 23 for a day of free healthcare, radical education and a march to highlight community hospital closings.

In response to our broken and 559906_358323064280474_459491265_nbankrupt health care system, Strike Debt’s Rolling Jubilee initiative has just made a big announcement: Strike Debt has bought and abolished $1 Million in medical debt. They are using this “buy” to highlight the profound inhumanity and inequality of our medical payment system and to create a vision of a world where healthcare is truly treated as a right.
