Taylor Wessing, 5 New Street Square, London EC4A 3TW
On Tuesday 22nd November Disability Alliance will be hosting a conference on disability and poverty at the offices of Taylor Wessing, New Street Square, London.
Addressing the conference will be the Minister for Disabled people Maria Killer Miller and leading welfare parasites Atos who carry out the flawed Work Capability Assessment. Tens of thousands of disabled and sick people are being forced into poverty as a direct result of this government’s policies and the role of Atos as disability assessors, whose true purpose is to strip benefits from as many people as possible.
With the launch of the Personal Independent Payment this situation is set to become far worse as current Disability Living Allowance claimants are forced into a similar demeaning and stressful assessment regime. Around 20% of disabled people are set to lose vital benefits as part of the process.
Join us at 10am outside the conference to show out contempt for this government’s treatment of disabled people.
Bring placards, banners, leaflets etc
