Health Week  - organised by Labour Youth
organised by Labour Youth

Throughout this week Labour Youth has organised a health week on college campuses to highlight the crisis in our health service and the dangers of going down the privatisation route in our hospitals.

Among the various events organised over the week there will be public meetings with Labour TDs on campus and the screening of a film about the state of health care in the US.

Enda Duffy, Chairperson of Labour Youth, said: "It is a national scandal that Ireland despite years of economic boom has a rapidly deteriorating health service. Labour Youth is calling for taxpayer's money to be invested in a universal health system that is free at the point of access."

Last night Eamon Gilmore TD addressed students in Trinity and on Thursday, Jan O'Sullivan TD will be speaking in the arts block on Labour's ideal health vision.

Other events include a screening of Michael Moore's 'Sicko' and a protest tomorrow (Wednesday, Feb 6th) at 1pm at the Dáil to highlight the PD/FF health service failures.
