Medact North East group meeting: July

Wednesday 10th July @ 8:00 pm 9:00 pm

A group of people at a climate protest in the centre of Newcastle, including adults with prams and children, smiling at the camera and holding handmade placards including "Climate Crisis = Health Crisis" and "Let's paint the Toon Green".

Medact North East are a collective of health workers and students based across the North East, from Northumberland to Newcastle to Middlesbrough!

Currently we are working on a climate justice campaign, supporting a grassroots group to win the fight against a large waste incinerator on Teesside, which would pollute the air of the local community as well as accelerating the climate crisis. 

We are also exploring campaigns around migrant health justice issues through our new ‘Migrant Health’ group.  This includes supporting No to Hassockfield which is fighting to shut down a women’s detention centre in County Durham.    

The group meets monthly. Each meeting is facilitated by a different person and they welcome new members! The time is used to discuss current campaigns and anything else relevant.
