Four year demo anniversary, man sanctioned for 96 days, food parcels handed out. 

Charlotte, and her hardy group, have been protesting every single week, for the last Four Years, outside Ashton Under Lyne Jobcenter!
I wish someone in authority could explain to me how they think it right – or even okay – to take away the very little, allowed by Law, for a person to live on, in order to punish that person for not trying harder to find a non-existing job?
They call it Sanctions, but I call it abominable!

The poor side of life

Today was the day of our yearly anniversary and we had decided on a theme… Prisoners of the DWP. Claimants are treated by the DWP like criminals and every aspect of their life is effectively controlled by them. If you don’t believe me just ask someone who is a victim of this regime. It’s cruel and horrible and has the ability to destroy a persons life at the push of a button. Hence our demo theme.
I arrived slightly early awaiting the delivery of the pasting table that we were using today, the big flask donated by Ray Woolford when he visited, and also tea, coffee etc.

I arrived early, I was expecting Roy early, but I wasn’t expecting anyone else to be but they proved me wrong, everyone was either early or on time which was amazing. Thank you folks it is appreciated it really is, you guys are…
