Some Cuts Don’t Heal

Community Health Care workers, joined by Hilltop community members, staged a rally and march in the heart of Hilltop along Martin Luther King Jr. Way Thursday. Participants carried signs, noisemakers, and smiles.  One of the signs read, “Some Cuts Don’t Heal.”

Participants rallied against unfair budget cuts to healthcare. The event began at 6 pm in Hilltop’s People’s Park with a protest, followed by a walk down MLK to the new Hilltop Regional Health Center spot at 1202 MLK Jr. Way. There they chanted, “Hey hey ho ho, healthcare cuts have got to go.”

Community Health Care supporters of all ages participated in the rally and march.

Following the rally at the new Community Health Care building, workers and community members marched back to People’s Park chanting, “Ain’t no power like the power of the people and the power of the people don’t stop.” They left some of their signs on the building to leave a lasting statement.

Following the rally at the new location, supporters left their signs on the building.

  1. We just read on Community Health Care’s website that the groundbreaking ceremony scheduled for August 9, 2011, has been canceled. We will keep you posted on the date of the ribbon cutting ceremony once construction is completed.
