Summary: Featured speakers/guests:
More than a month before the new Congress meets and 7 weeks before the 2017 presidential inaguration AIDS activists kicked off a campaign to resist cuts to the healthcare system called for by congressional republicans and Donald Trump.

On December 1st in Washington, D.C. eleven AIDS activists were arrested while staging a sit-in at the office of Speaker of the House Paul Ryan in protest of his and Congressman Tom Prices plans to dismantle the U.S. healthcare system that the global HIV response depends on.

People living with HIV, students, nurses, and others took over the hallway outside Ryans office, holding signs and banners reading Ryan & Prices Healthcare Dream is a Nightmare for People with HIV.

AIDS activists delivered a letter to Ryans office and to the office of Congressman Price, who is the incoming Trump administrations nominee for Secretary of Health and Human Services (HHS).
