NYSNA ED Jill Furillo, RN, right, and President-Elect Judy Sheridan Gonzalez, RN, left, were arrested on Wednesday alongside Long Island College Hospital nurses, caregivers, community allies, City Councilmember Stephen Levin, and Public Advocate Bill de Blasio to #SaveLICH and keep Brooklyn hospitals #open4care !

Nurses, doctors, and community activists have received no support from City Hall or Albany, and they are having to resort to civil disobedience in an effort to save LICH from closing. What does it say when police drag our nurses into jail, just because our nurses are fighting to save our hospitals ?

Activists are calling on LICH's operator, SUNY, to stop their unlawful and dangerous ambulance diversion and to stop trying to sabotage care for Brooklyn patients.
