Nurses, Doctors, Patients to Protest Health Insurers at National Day of Action - June 19th
Date:6/13/2008

Thousands in San Francisco and Around Country Will Demand Guaranteed

Healthcare Now

SAN FRANCISCO, June 13 /PRNewswire/ -- Asking what a life is worth, thousands of Americans will gather in San Francisco and 18 other cities this June 19th to protest health insurance corporations-and to advocate guaranteed, single-payer healthcare, such as an improved "Medicare for All."

This national protest targets the annual convention of America's Health Insurance Plans (AHIP), the insurance industry lobbying group dedicated to blocking healthcare reform; former Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist (R-TN) and former Chair of the Democratic National Committee Terry McAuliffe are featured guests of the insurers. Patients and their families victimized by AHIP members will be on hand to tell their stories.

The protests, the largest related to healthcare in many years, will be extensively covered at the new Guaranteed Healthcare Blog, http://www.GuaranteedHealthcare.org/blog, a project of the Leadership Committee on Guaranteed Healthcare.

WHAT: Thousands Protest Insurance Companies in San Francisco, nationwide

WHEN: Thursday, June 19th, 12 Noon to 1 pm

WHERE: San Francisco, CA-4th St. @ Howard St.

Malinda Markowitz, RN, a co-President of the California Nurses Association/National Nurses Organizing Committee said, "We march for those who can't-for those who have been denied care by the insurance companies, or bankrupted by their practices. The American people are ready for guaranteed healthcare through an improved 'Medicare for All,' and it is time to pass Rep. John Conyers' HR 676 on the federal level and State Senator Sheila Kuehl's SB 840 in California in order to finally end our health care crisis."

The Leadership Committee on Guaranteed Healthcare is composed of California Nurses Association/National Nurses Organizing Committee (CNA/NNOC), Physicians for a National Health Program, Healthcare Now!, and Progressive Democrats of America, working in coalition with the California School Employees Association, the American Medical Students Association, the California Universal Healthcare Organizing Project, the Courage Campaign, United Educators San Francisco, AFT 2121-4, American Patients United and Senior Action Network.
