New Campaign for Autumn 2010
Welfare Benefits under Threat from the new Coalition Government!
Those cuts, many of which are not yet announced sound really scary right? Putting mental health suvivors in the UK under extreme stress - adversely affecting our mental health. This is not good.
So Mad Pride folk have decided to join in with other survivors to plan an Anti-Benefits Cuts Campaign of Direct Action in 2010. We can't just do nothing until we find ourselves living in cardboard boxes (remember them?).
Planning is Happening
About thirty people attended a meeting in Pogo's Cafe in Hackney, East London in July 2010. Loads of ideas for the shape of a Campaign were put forward. A small group is now going to meet on 14th August to work on ways of supporting the Campaign.
Meanwhile new on this site is a Forum where everyone interested in joining or helping the campaign can meet up, leave messages, give opinions, support the campaign and each other. And other stuff. GET INVOLVED.
And whatever you do: DON'T LET THE BASTARDS GRIND YOU DOWN
