Act for healthcare reform    :)



Seven Arested at Cigna!    :)



Join our new campaign of non-violent, civil disobedience targeting the private health insurance industry.   :)



Take Action   :)


Seven citizens and healthcare providers who are fed up with the state of our healthcare and the healthcare debate were arrested at the downtown Chicago offices of Cigna today.

The sit-in is part of a national mobilization to end insurance abuse and build support for real reform Medicare for All, a single-payer plan.

Almost 700 people have already signed up to risk arrest at a health insurance company office, joining one of the largest campaigns of nonviolent civil disobedience since the civil rights movement. Many of these events are occurring next week on Thursday, October 15 in a dozen cities across the country.

ChiSPAN, the Chicago Single-Payer Action Network, was key in organizing this sit-in and rally.

Read a full account, and watch a video, of yesterday's action in Chicago here.

This is the third arrest of non-violent, single-payer supporters at a private health insurance company office building. Nine were arrested at Wellmark's offices in DesMoines, Iowa this past summer, and seventeen were arrested at Aetna's offices in New York last week.
