Arm the hospitals not the Army!

Athens (Greece)
30 Nov 2010

On the 30th of November, 2 days before World AIDS day, World without Wars and Violence in cooperation with the NGO “Positive Voice” made a protest outside the Greek Ministry of Health through the standard “Invisibles” campaign that has taken place in the country throughout the whole of 2010. There were also representatives of two other organisations and all together we delivered a list with the demands to the Minister of Health.

This protest was mainly directed at the decision that the ministry seems to have under way for the closure of 7 (!!!) hospitals across the country due to the economic crisis… The main motto of the manifestation was “Arm the hospitals not the Army!” It was the 11th time the “Invisibles” made their appearance in the last 9 months.
