10,000 Cuts and Counting

The Atos Stories Collective is delighted to support 10,000 Cuts and Counting which will take place on 28th September, 12pm outside 10, Downing St.

Details of the event can be found on the organisers' facebook page, the salient points being as follows:

" the disabled and non-disabled community will gather to remember those who have died and those still suffering as a result of the Government's austerity assault, which particularly affects disabled people.

The memorial will remember those who have died and those living who are having their independence and dignity challenged as a result of austerity, led by disability activists, Occupy activists, David Ison - the Dean of St Paul’s Cathedral, Michael Meacher MP and other representatives."

"The gathering will demand an immediate end to the Work Capability Assessment, as voted for by the British Medical Association, and a New Deal for sick & disabled people based on their needs, abilities and ambitions as outlined in the WOW petition."

"Clothing. Please wear white clothing as a symbol of remembrance. If this is not possible, a white scarf or other small item would be useful. Please also bring a white flower if you would like to lay one in remembrance"

We would urge all who are able to come to London on the 28th and to join in via facebook  or twitter using the hashtag #10KCuts
