#WelfareCeasefire

We would like all supporters to sign our Thunderclap and share on Facebook and Twitter, Email to all on their friends list . Don't forget to include #WelfareCeasefire on your messages. Thank You for supporting us. This is UK wide

Welfare reforms are causing both distress and harm to sick & disabled people and carers  & their families across the UK. We believe this should be halted while inclusive discussions take place with Grassroots Campaigners.


Motion from the Scottish Parliament: That the Parliament welcomes the campaign by Pat’s Petition and CarerWatch for an immediate "ceasefire" on welfare reform; notes their call for an immediate truce on the use of sanctions, timing people out, the use of the bedroom tax for disabled people and repeated assessments for those deemed unfit for work; believes that, throughout the Hamilton, Larkhall and Stonehouse parliamentary constituency and across Scotland, disabled people are being punished by welfare reform, and notes the view that, until a system is introduced that supports carers and disabled people, welfare reform should brought to an end

    PRESS RELEASE FOR EMERGENCY CEASEFIRE ON ESA

     

    Employment and Support Allowance (ESA) is the new out of work benefit for sick and disabled people. It has caused incredible fear and hardship and has not achieved any of its objectives.

    Pat’s Petition and CarerWatch have been calling for an Emergency Ceasefire to create a safe space and protect sick and disabled people while the benefit is made fit for purpose.

    http://www.disabilitynewsservice.com/campaigners-call-for-next-government-to-cease-firing-on-welfare-reform/

    The Call for a Ceasefire has received strong support from the SNP, the Green Party and Plaid Cymru.

    However the larger parties seem unwillingly to raise issues of welfare in their election campaigns.

    So Pat’s Petition and CarerWatch are asking everyone who cares about welfare reform to join this Thunderclap on social media -

    https://www.thunderclap.it/projects/24346-welfareceasefire?locale=en

    It is timed for just before the next Leaders Debate. Please support Thunderclap and make sure that welfare reforms for sick and disabled people rise to the top of the agenda for the next Leaders Debate
