Die-In Against Trumpcare and For Affordable Coverage for All in New York City

PLEASE CONSIDER SUPPORTING MY WORK
 

New York - Health providers, patients, grassroots organizers, NYC Councilmember and co-founder of #GetOrganizedBK Brad Lander, NY assemblymember Richard Gottfried and concerned New York residents organized a Die-In against Trumpcare and for affordable coverage for all on June 4, 2017; at 33 Street Plaza, W. 33 St. between 7the and 8th Aves, Manhattan. People lying “dead” on the ground holding tombstones with messages such as: “Died from lack of health insurance,” “Killed by a preventable disease,” "Died. GOP plan helped the rich, not me". Protestors rally to warn US Senate of human toll of “repeal/replace” health plans 

The Die-In Against Trumpcare and For Affordable Coverage for All is one of 20 actions from Honolulu to Boston on June 4. The NYC Die-In is lynchpin of a nationwide coordinated action to say NO to GOP health care proposals. 

Patients and health professionals detailed the personal impact of GOP’s plans: ACA repeal, deep Medicaid cuts, de-funding Planned Parenthood, and pre-existing conditions exclusions. The grassroots protest calls on the Senate to abandon efforts to repeal ACA and ensure affordable health care, such as Medicare for All.
