Hundreds of people from all walks of life packed Manchester cathedral to back the Junior Doctors fighting back against the NHS cuts to services and privatisation of the NHS.
Dr Siema Iqbal speaks above, with a signer to the right. The Tory Government contracts will put patients lives at risk and will slash salaries. Many medical professionals spoke, all passionately, including Dr Gurshuran Johal. "If we don't do something now we're going to lose the NHS-this is the undoing of the NHS, it starts with us and then it'll be everyone else", "We ARE going to fight for it". "Unity is strength and needed".

First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out—Because I was not a Socialist.
Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out— Because I was not a Trade Unionist.
Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out— Because I was not a Jew.
Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.
