National Day of Protest Against Health Insurance Corporations

Personal Health

More than 47 million Americans don't have health insurance (with millions more under-insured), employer-based health insurance is on the decline, and soaring medical bills are a leading cause of bankruptcy in the United States.

The statistics are sobering. The time for action is now.

Thursday, June 19 is a national day of protest and your chance to push back against health insurers that put profits before people. Protests are being planned in locations across the United States, from California to Kentucky, and will coincide with the annual convention of America’s Health Insurance Plans (AHIP), a powerful lobby that wants to stop health care reform efforts.

Visit www.guaranteedhealthcare.org to join the fight and www.healthcare-now.org/june19.html to find more information on exact locations and times of protests in your area.
