New Atos Cambridge Campaign Group
Join Action Against Atos:
A Cambridge-based organising group against Atos ‘Healthcare’, and in defense of disability rights and the welfare state at a time when they are unacceptably coming majorly under attack.
Atos are a private company who have been contracted by the government to declare people fit to work, hounding them off benefits while the Access to Work Scheme is simultaneously being limited.
We will be running weekly pickets of Atos’ assessment centre in Cambridge, gathering information and seeking to ensure that people know what is happening, seeking to strengthen links with service users, and participating in the national campaign to bring an end both to Atos’ profiteering and to attacks on disabled people and the welfare state.
You can join the facebook group here http://www.facebook.com/home.php?sk=group_145100512227980; watch this space for a mailing list!
UPDATE: A meeting to continue the campaign against Atos is also being held in Manchester on Tuesday 24th May 6pm at Rapar Office, Mount St, Manchester (next to Friends Meeting House).
