Day of Action against Benefit Sanctions on the 19th of March

March 1, 2015

Mike over at Vox Political has this story, National day of action to stop benefit sanctions – Unite the Union. It begins

More and more people are facing benefit sanctions. Over two million people have had their money stopped in the past two years, according to Unite.

That’s two million people, many of whom have been plunged into poverty, unable to heat their homes or even eat. How is this meant to help prepare people for work?

He also lists the four ways to get involved, with links. These include joining one of the events in your area, telling your story, if you’ve been sanctioned, and signing the petition against sanctions.

Unfortunately, there doesn’t seem to be a demo in Bristol. There are, however, protests organised for further afield in Taunton, Exeter, Weymouth, Bideford and Truro further south, and Swindon further east.
