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

We need your support for a new campaign of non-violent, civil disobedience targeting the private health insurance industry.

This past spring, 13 brave individuals were arrested for disrupting Senate Finance hearings on health reform, chaired by Sen. Max Baucus. They were disgusted with witness panels, filled with private insurance execs and their cronies, that did NOT include even one single-payer expert.

Since Baucus only listened to the interests of millionaire CEOs and their lobbyists, it should be no surprise that a former CIGNA exec. called the Senate Finance Committee's recently released bill, "a gift to the private health insurance industry that should be renamed the 'Insurance Industry Profit Protection and Enhancement Act.'"

We can't stand for this disaster. The Mobilization for Health Care for All

http://www.mobilizeforhealthcare.org/

is launching a campaign of nonviolent sit-ins at insurance company offices so we can stand up to end a system that profits by denying people care and puts insurance company bureaucrats between doctors and patients. Time for Medicare for all, a single-payer, national healthcare system.

Healthcare-NOW! has decided to support this effort, and to encourage local coalitions in our network that are ready and willing to participate.

The PHIMG (Private Health Insurance Must Go) coalition in NYC will begin this campaign on September 29th. Other local groups are planning subsequent actions.

Actions may vary, but the central idea is to target major private insurance companies because they must not, and can not, be part of any solution to our healthcare crisis.

We need your help. Let us know if you'd like to participate in, or organize, a civil disobedience action near you. Go here to sign up
