The 3rd National Day of Protest Against Benefit Cuts
at Government Buildings, Flowers Hill, Bristol BS4 5LA

Welfare as we know it is under attack. Those claiming disability benefits are facing severe pressure as record numbers are being assessed as fit for work when they aren't. ATOS, the company doing the tests, seems to be paid by results, putting unacceptable pressure on their workers. Bristol & District Anti Cuts Alliance (BADACA) and Bristol Disability Equality Forum (DEF) have decided as both workers & claimants to call a public protest to highlight this. All welcome

Come to the protest at Government buildings, Flowers Hill, BS4 5LA. Public transport: X39 Bus from Colston Street, ask driver for 'Flowers Hill Eastbound'

Want to get involved? Any other problems with benefits? Want to tell your story?
