Some 200 activists on Monday, April 29, took to the streets outside PhRMA’s Washington headquarters to protest the trade association’s alleged role in blocking “Medicare for All,” STAT reports.
The protesters later made their way through the building’s entrance, according to the report, plastering flyers and printouts supporting Medicare For All.
“I hate PhRMA,” Center For Popular Democracy National Field Organizer Darius Gordon said, speaking for activist Ady Barkan, who was unable to speak due to his ALS. “[Drugmakers] believe that they can stop us from passing ‘Medicare For All.’ They are wrong. We will beat them.”
PhRMA reportedly declined STAT’s request for comment regarding the protest.
