In January 2015, the National Health Action Party organised a mass-whistleblowing inspired by a tweet from then-leader Dr Clive Peedell. NHS campaigners and staff united to send 30,000 tweets exposing the Tories, with the hashtag #PublicDuty trending UK-wide on Twitter that day.
In March 2016 we repeated the feat, reaching an estimated 350,000 people. And a third Twitterstorm before the 2017 General Election was so popular that Labour started using the subtly-altered #MyPublicDuty hashtag.
Now we’re calling for a repeat performance. Once more, the Conservatives have done nothing in the last year but anger and upset thousands of NHS staff, patients, and members of the public. It's time we all spoke out.
Here’s how you can help:
- Sign up to our Thunderclap campaign, which will schedule an automatic tweet for you at the start of the Twitterstorm.
- Join us on Twitter at 8pm Sunday 28th January and tweet with #PublicDuty. We suggest tweets along the lines of "As a (job) with (number) years NHS experience, it’s my #PublicDuty to inform you that the Tories are dismantling and privatising the NHS".
- Use the Twitter search box to find and retweet other #PublicDuty tweets.
Thank you again for your support.
