Please retweet and support "THE ATOS TWO"

Unread postby Miss Ben E Fit » Mon Nov 21, 2011

Two Nottingham residents, a pensioner and a wheelchair user, have been charged with aggravated trespass. The pair, dubbed the “Atos Two” by supporters, were arrested following a peaceful protest the offices of the Atos “Healthcare” on Stoney Street on September 30th. Campaigners accuse Atos of participating in a government-led attack on people with disabilities under the guise of “austerity.”

Upcoming event: Protest outside Bridewell Magistrates Court, Friday 25th November, 9.30am

http://nottingham.indymedia.org/articles/2168

Disabled people, some of them terminal, are being forced off incapacity benefit onto employment support allowance by a private French IT company called ATOS who is paid a commission by the Government for every person they kick off.  Disabled people are being forced to attend assessments (often by staff who are not fully qualified e.g. midwives) and being asked “trick questions such as “Do you watch Eastenders” and then concluding that if the person can sit still long enough to watch a soap they can sit in a job that required they stay in one place.

***************************************************************

ATOS set to subvert GP care for patients

This week we heard that the Government are considering a report to take away the ability of GP’s to write sick notes for longer than 4 weeks, this is very concerning for people with mental health issues such as depression, bereavement and those who have recently been diagnosed with a long term illness such as multiple sclerosis.  The GP knows the patient, they know the family, they know the situation and have gained the trust of the patient to confide.

What we have seen is that when such people are confronted in the wrong way, they often commit suicide.  So is ATOS what we have to look forward to for GP patients?  Currently ATOS ignore GP input and choose to use their own assessment software, but many many cases are being overturned on appeal.  So this is costing the state a fortune in appeals and causing huge stress for people with genuine disabilities.  This story shows what happens when anyone complains, they need your support, please help in any way that you can, ideally attend the court hearing, get the press involved or just tweet about this to your friends and write about it on your facebook wall.
