Solidarity with DPAC against ATOS

Next week Disabled People Against Cuts (DPAC) (http://www.dpac.uk.net/) are staging the ATOS Olympics (http://www.dpac.uk.net/2012/08/atos-games-opening-ceremony-monday-august-27th/) to highlight opposition to the role of ATOS in denying benefits to so many disabled people (http://m.guardian.co.uk/society/2012/aug/02/atos-disability-benefit-tests?cat=society&type=article).



In a time when the response of the labour and trade union movement to the savage onslaught from the Tory Coalition Government has been generally less than inspiring, the emergence of new grassroots campaigning organisations have offered rare opportunities for optimism - and DPAC is a fine example of how those bearing the brunt of Tory attacks can organise, mobilise and fight back.



All trade unionists should do whatever we can to support DPAC.
