I, Daniel Blake is a powerful new film directed by Ken Loach highlighting the bureaucracy and humiliation those claiming Employment and Support Allowance (ESA) and other benefits have to face and the sanctions culture.

John McDonnell MP and the Labour Party are supporting 'I, Daniel Blake Day' on 17th November with hundreds of special screenings around the country to show #WeAreAllDanielBlake, the week before Tories introduce their plans to cut ESA. We are calling on the government to reverse those cuts.

We are facing what Diane Abbott has called 'the deepest ever crisis in the NHS'. Almost every target is being missed and waiting times are lengthening for ambulances, for A&E, for cancer referrals and for elective surgery beyond 18 weeks. Now budgets are being slashed and health facilities may be forced to close, and new Tory cuts may mean up to 3,000 pharmacy closures across England, up to 470 in London alone.

On 26th November, we will be campaigning across Southwark as part of Labour's #CarefortheNHS National Campaign Action Day. Please join us at one of the events below to speak to residents about this important issue.
