ATOS is a private European company hired by this Government to cut the Welfare Benefits by 20%. Most of these cuts have been aimed at the chronically sick and disabled. 40% of people seen by ATOS have had their benefits cut and had to go to appeal. 70% of these decisions were overturned on appeal. That means that ATOS are making mistakes and denying benefits to the sick and disabled. Some people do not have the wherewithal or the strength to fight these decisions and are left destitute and starving. We ask you to come down and support the chronically ill and disabled by highlighting this company's greed, and lack of humanity towards the most vulnerable in our society. This situation will only get worse as the government are cutting legal aid. This means that those taken off of benefit, by mistakes made by ATOS, will not be able to appeal against these decisions. HELP STOP THE ROT NOW.
This is an ongoing campaign, ATOS will be picketed once a week
The next action will be on Friday June the 10th 4-6 pm.
