The Peace and Justice Studies Program at Utah Valley University is excited to announce that on Saturday September 12th a new movement will arrive on campus to meet at 7:00pm in Student Center 206c.
Starting September 8 a caravan of Oregon doctors will begin a pilgrimage toward the US capital. Along the way they are stopping off wherever there are people who will listen to their message.
These doctors are mad as hell at a corrupted system of health care that cares only for its profits, not its patients. Their message will be recorded and broadcast worldwide and will also be available via Facebook, Myspace, Twitter, YouTube and the like.
The goal of this pilgrimage is to rally the voices, needs and desires of the citizens around them and create a veritable tsunami of nationwide activism in demand for the only answer that makes any sense: a single payer solution.
These doctors believe that there is only one way to control costs, one way to remove profiteering from the system, one way to reclaim the care of their patients, and one way to be sure everyone is covered: Americans must replace our current pay-or-die system with a comprehensive, publicly financed, privately delivered, Single Payer system that puts people first. This is our moment to take a stand for Single Payer healthcare, we may not have another opportunity like this in our lifetime. Please support this unprecedented road trip to real health care reform.
Consider yourself cordially invited to come, to hear their words, to ask your questions and to share your stories. These amazing physicians want you there to lend your support and your passion. They are doctors, and they are Mad As Hell.
