March with Medics Under Fire

On Saturday, 7 May, 2016, Dr David Nott will be one of the speakers at a march organised by a collection of medical charities to protest against the targeting of hospitals and healthcare workers in war zones.

If you were horrified by the attacks on hospitals last week in Aleppo, which killed the last remaining paediatrician in the city, please come and support us.

We will meet on the North Terrace of Trafalgar Square at 2pm.  A number of short speeches will be given before we march to Downing Street to deliver a letter calling for action against those who contravene international humanitarian law to target medical workers. You can find more information here:
