On your marks, get set…
for a week of Paralympic fun and games against Atos!
From Monday 27th to Friday 31st of August, join Disabled People Against Cuts for The Atos Games – five days of action against a company that’s sponsoring the Paralympics but wrecking disabled people’s lives.
We are calling on disabled people, disabled activists, families, colleagues, friends and supporters to come together and fight back against Atos’s attacks. Atos represents as dangerous an opponent as any government, law or barrier the disability movement has faced in its long history. It’s not just welfare, but our very identity and our place within society that is under attack.
And we are asking the whole of the anti-cuts movement to join us in our opposition to the company most responsible for driving through the government’s brutal cuts agenda. Let’s make it Games over for Atos!
Tuesday 28th, 1pm, by 5-ways in Birmingham – please note that 5-ways train station is not wheelchair accessible, and the nearest train stations are New Street, Moor Street or Snow Hill. Full details will be posted later. If you are on facebook, the best thing to do would be to join the facebook event where DPAC will publish updates.
There are also actions taking place on others days in the week, including ones for people who are unable to attend the demos which are happening nationally on Tuesday 28th, or in London on Friday 31st – see the DPAC website for more details.
