Atos Medical Assessment Centre, Corunna House.
29 Cadogan Street, G2 7RD
Glasgow, United Kingdom
We will be handing out leaflets to those attending sickness assessments on how to deal with the medical. We will be giving advice on how to appeal against being turned down for Employment Support Allowance with the aim of reducing the profit Atos makes from forcing sick and disabled claimants off benefits. We will also be leafleting workers on their lunchbeak in nearby offices to publicise how Atos and the government are cutting benefits to pay for the greed of bankers and the inevitable booms and busts of capitalist economics. We have no illusions that the sickness assessment system was fair or humane under a Labour government or when it it was run by the DWP. There is only one reason for wanting the assessment system to be run by a public body - at least some corporation isn't making a profit from the misery of the sick and disabled. In the long-term we aim to live in a society based on the principle, 'from each according to their ability, to each according to their need'.
There may be some tea and nice biscuits.
If anyone wants to discuss what we are doing we can be available at the STUC building, 333 Woodlands Road, Glasgow G3 6NG on Thursday 29th September between 5.30pm and 8.30pm while we finish our new banner.
We Will Win!
Not even the wrong medication can stop us now!
