Pat's Petition

Pat Onions has submitted an e-petion to the government website. Pat who is blind, is also a carer. .
There is now just less than month before this petition expires on 1st November,  it has been signed by 50,000 but urgently needs to get another 50,000 by the end of the month - we have to keep pushing, this government needs to be told the depth of feeling in this country that is against their punitive policies. Every voice counts. If they still do not listen we must do everything that is available to keep up opposition to their deeply flawed, policies. Together we can win.
Pat's petition calls on Parliament to:

"Stop and review the cuts to benefits and services which are falling disproportionately on disabled people, their carers and families"

it can be signed here


And after you have signed keep sharing the petition as wide and as far as possible, because we still have a long way to go.Up and down the country it is also noticed that the Work Capability Assessments are simply failing the most vulnerable sections of our community and that Atos the company undertaking these tests are simply not fit for purpose.
Hopefully the 100,000 target will be reached, and perhaps their will be some kind of debate in Parliament. If we get enough signatures at least we can shame them.
And when they carry on not listening, we carry  on together too, in solidarity, resisting them every inch of the way. We will not be silenced.
