A few days ago, fourteen people ended their Hunger Strike for Health Care with a small victory: hospitals began negotiations, issued small promises to not turn away patients who are undocumented and uninsured. Yesterday, Sarai Rodriguez passed away while waiting for promises to turn into actions. Although the hunger strike ended, the struggle for Health Care continues!!!
Join us in supporting the Hunger Strike for Health Care campaign as it begins a new stage of the struggle.Theuy are asking for solidarity at a funeral procession to Northwestern Memorial Hospital, the one that denied care to Sarai Rodriguez. We will march to the hospital and stay there all night and all day Monday.
