New York, NY (Nov. 15, 2011) – Activists from Hands Off St. Vincent’s are proud to join #OccupyWallStreet, the labor movement, and the global movement for economic and social equality during the November 17th Day of Action in New York City.
Members of the Healthcare for the 99% Working Group from #OccupyWallStreet will join this action. Activists are undertaking their action on :
DATE : Thursday, November 17, 2011
TIME : 1:00 – 1:30 p.m.
PLACE : St. Vincent’s Hospital, Seventh Avenue South and West 11th Street
At St. Vincent’s, activists will stage a SPEAK-OUT and a DIE-IN. After that, activists will march to Union Square, so that they can arrive before 3:00 p.m.
Activists want to force billionaire Bill Rudin from the Rudin Management Company to take the lead in building a Trauma Level 1, full-service hospital to replace St. Vincent’s.
Did you know that the residents of the Lower West Side of Manhattan below 57th Street have no hospital ?
Did you know that Bill Rudin wants to offer us a two-bed “hospital” in a phony health care facility ?
