The Board of the
at Voula had decided to close its Paediatric Clinic. The Asklipiou Hospital Union of
Employees and Doctors of Asklipiou organized a demonstration on the 4th

The Metropolitan Community Clinic at Helliniko supports the struggle of the hospital’s employees in the public health system. We were at their side on the 4th, supporting their struggle, not only to keep the Paediatric Clinic open, but also to open ALL the hospital to uninsured citizens.
We call upon all citizens to support the struggle taking place against the storm that has been sweeping through our public health system.
Please spread the word wherever you can – since none in the mass media as seen fit to do so
