Fighting Privatisation and PFI
April 7 each year is a day of international solidarity against privatisation. For the last few years this date has not worked well in England, but a network of campaigners have taken up the fight. Click here for a short video promoting the idea.
European Day Of Action against Commercialisation of Health Care
A second European Day of action against Health commercialisation has been called for 7 April 2017. In 2016, action took place in Belgium, France and Spain, and several other activities across Europe have been shared through social media.

On April 7 in Brussels the European Public Services Union, its member unions and a coalition of anti-privatisation campaigns and NGOs from as far afield as Greece and Turkey came together in a Day of Action and a conference to launch a new website resource.
The website aims to chart the moves towards privatisation and relevant issues for union and campaign activists - across the continent. In the meantime the EPSU is also upgrading and updating its own website coverage on health.
