Betty, a nurse who has been working for the NHS for the past 20 years, is on the demonstration with her daughter, a teacher.
She says “I felt I had to be here because we cannot let them privatise the NHS – and they lied.
I met a guy from Brazil who’s been here for a week and he was so impressed at our democracy. I said ‘we’ve got a proper democracy here but we won’t have anymore if we let them continue’.”
