Our campaign

It is no secret that the price of medicines is getting higher and higher, and that these prices are absolutely unjustified. That pharmaceutical companies make huge and contemptable profit margins on treatments for sick people, that the National Health Service cannot maintain. When it comes to health, should the market or the government make the law?

Our health is at stake. Spread the word.
