The 3rd National Day of Protest Against Benefit Cuts has
been called for
April 14th 2011.
Millions are set to be affected by savage cuts to
housing, disability, sickness and welfare
People with disabilities, illness, the unemployed,
single parents, carers,the low waged, part time
students, volunteers, homeless people and college
students are all likely to see a devastating drop in
disposable income with many slipping even further
below the poverty line.
The poorest and most vulnerable are being asked to pay for
the mistakes and extravagances of the richest.
Meanwhile poverty pimps like Atos Origin and A4e
are set to rake in hundreds of millions on government
contracts to bully and intimidate people from claiming
the pittance handed out in benefit payments.
Many disabled people have threatened suicide if
these cuts are allowed to continue.
Some have tragically already carried out that threat.
The first two days of protest against benefit cuts
have seen demonstrations, meetings, unemployed
public pantomimes and occupations in cities
across the UK. Atos Origin have been forced to close
offices, protesters have gathered inside and outside
workfare sharks A4e and demonstrations have
taken place from
Downing Street to local town centres such as
Lydney and Crawley.
This time we have two months to organise for the
biggest day yet.
We call on all claimants, as groups or individuals,
to organise and take action around the country on
