Share Politics: Peter Tatchell
Protesters led by Peter Tatchell have disrupted a speech by Jeremy Corbyn, calling on the Labour leader to demand action to end the conflict in Syria. Corbyn halted his speech while several protesters held up banners with slogans including: “Step up and demand action in Syria” and “End the suffering in Aleppo”. Tatchell, a human rights campaigner who has previously supported the Labour party, shouted over the party leader to demand he do more to condemn the actions of Russia in the Syrian conflict. He told Share Radio's Colin Bloom why he felt drastic action was needed.

Share Politics: NHS cuts 'planned across England'
A joint investigation by the Guardian and the group 38 Degrees has revealed that NHS England bosses are discreetly planning for radical changes in hospitals, including funding cut-backs and closures. The proposals have been designed to cover the increasing funding deficits and swellling demand in the health service. The plans have attracted both positive and negative reactions from the political and professional community. Colin was joined by Eric Watts, chair of Doctors for the NHS, a organisation which pushes for restoration of the NHS as a fully public service.
