Postby claimantsfightback » Sat Jan 15, 2011 10:23 am

News is coming in of protests and actions around the UK as part of the National Day of Protest Against Benefit Cuts called for the 24th January.

With a call to focus on the poverty pimps set to make hundreds of millions out of benefit reforms, many groups have chosen to target Atos Origin, the company responsible for the punitive medical testing of disability and sickness benefits.

In London a Party and Picnic has been called in Triton Square near Euston from 2pm. Bring music, drums, whistles, banners, food to share and brighten up the faceless corporate wasteland that is home to poverty pimps Atos Origin Ltd.

In Livingston,not far from Edinburgh, protesters will be visiting Atos Origin’s Scotland Office. Visit the facebook page for more info, and be there from 10am.

Atos will also be the scene of a protest in Leeds called by local claimants and West Yorkshire Solidarity Federation. Be at 1 Whitehall, Leeds from 10 am then a group will be visiting notorious poverty pimps A4e at noon.

Even the Shires are revolting with a Protest Against Disability Cuts to be held in Lydney, Gloucestershire. Meet outside the Co-op at 1pm.

A call has gone out for protests in Burnley, whilst Hastings activists will be laying a trail of Red Drops from Hastings to London.

A few days earlier on the 20th Jan, Cardiff’s Unemployed Daytime Disco returns promising DJs, Live Music, Spoken Word Artistes, bands, light shows & happenings. And of course it’s all free.

Finally taking place everywhere the Second National Troll A Tory Day will take place on the 24th January for all those who can’t attend a protest in person. Tell the bastards what you think.

On Wednesday 11th May 2011 there will be a day of protests organised by "thehardesthit" which will comprise of a march at 11.30am at the Embankment near Horseguards Avenue,followed by a rally at the Methodist Central Hall in Westminster,then you can lobby your MP in Westminster Hall between 2.30pm and 5.30pm in protest against the harsh new Work Capability Assessment introduced by the Conservative Liberal Democrat Coalition followed the Chancellor of The Ex Chequer George Osborne's Comprehensive Spending Review on October 20th 2010.The Government plan to get about a million people off incapacity benefit and Disability Living Allowance,forcing them into jobs that probably do not exist and threaten them with removing them completely from welfare benefits if they do not co-operate. They say that everybody is in it together,when eighteen members of parliament are millionaires and are not affected by the cuts to benefits,will not be affected by the redundancies in the public sector and are not stopping the banks from paying out millions of pounds in bonuses.
This protest,rally and lobby is the chance for people with mental health disabilties to express their disapproval of what the government is doing,which is taking out the budget deficit and the alledged overspending by the Labour Party,on people who do not have the power to fight back.However people with mental health problems will not take these cuts to benefits lying down.One in four people in Britain suffer some sort of mental health problem in their lives.which is 25% of the population.If this number of people protest against the benefit cuts,they can start to believe that they can make an impact.Thank you for reading this,regards,David.

I think we should all send a letter to these people and complain about the high oil prices on the grounds of hardship. And see what the response is. What do you think?
