To the streets – again. We refuse to cooperate!

“Health care workers should be deciding what care people need based on their illness—not their income, refugee status, religion or anything else.” – Dr. Tim O’Shea, 2012

Following last week’s show on the cuts to refugee health care funding in Canada, we attended the “We Refuse to Cooperate” campaign in Bayfront Park on Saturday September 29th.  Dozens of community members, students and health care professionals gathered to demonstrate their support for equal access to services.  It was an event aimed at mobilizing awareness and enacting change for the many patients affected across Hamilton.

Today, we hear from three passionate activists about the clinical and financial effects of the cuts, and where things may go in the future.
