3rd National Day of Protest against Benefit Cuts

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 
April 14th.

If you are planning an event in your town or city 

please add details on the wall below to be added 
to this page and the website at:

You can also send details to

If you would like to see action locally, set up a group, event

 page or ask below. We will do out best to promote and 
co-ordinate all activity.

We are fighting for our homes, our livelihoods, our very

 survival. It's time to show these public school parasites 
and their poverty pimp collaborators we mean business.
