National Day of Protest Against Benefit Cuts – Thursday

The Third National Day of Protest Against Benefit Cuts takes place this Thursday 14th April.

Actions, events and demonstration will be taking place around the country with many choosing to target Atos Origin, the company responsible for carrying out the health testing of sick or disabled benefit claimants.

In London protesters will be gathering outside Atos in Islington in the morning then later in the day heading to the head office of the Daily Mail, off Kensington High Street to protest against the constant lies and defamation aimed at claimants in the media. Finally at 5pm demonstrators will be making there way to Westminster City Hall on Victoria Street where they will be handing out free food in defiance of the plans to criminalise soup runs and also highlighting the Housing Benefit caps which are set to make many Westminster residents homeless.

Events are also taking place in Bristol, Leeds, Livingston, Poole, Brighton, Poole, Edinburgh, Truro and Burnley, with news of actions in other cities still coming in.  We do not know of any planned protest in Birmingham, but if you are unable to get to any of the other towns or cities that are then The Armchair Army (Now called Virtual Resistance) will be holding a virtual protest online and the 14th has also been declared the 3rd National Troll A Tory Day.
