Nurses, politicians and community members will be gathering on the steps of City Hall Sunday afternoon to voice their support for nationwide healthcare.

The official event page, which is hosted on Bernie Sanders’ website, describes the event as an opportunity to share concerns about the impending destruction of Obamacare. Similar events will be held on the same day in Sacramento and Los Angeles.

“At a time when the United States remains the only major country on earth not to guarantee health care to all as a right, the Republicans want to throw nearly 30 million people off of health insurance, make massive cuts to Medicaid and defund Planned Parenthood,” states event organizers.

Attendees will include House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi, Congresswoman Anna Eshoo, Congressman Mike Thompson, Congresswoman Zoe Lofgren, Congressman Eric Swalwell and Congressman Ro Khanna. The group will rally, the event page states, “to tell Republicans loudly and clearly: You are not going to get away with it.” Although the “it” isn’t clarified, we can only assume they’re talking about the Republicans’ efforts to eliminate Obamacare.
