Stop The Bedroom Tax/ Op Let's Get Shirty

We want Parliament to repeal the Welfare Reform Act of 2012.

The Act vindictively targets all benefit claimants disproportionately causing millions of people financial hardship, poverty and at risk of starvation and homelessness.
The Bedroom Tax, the abolition of Disability Living Allowance, changes to Social Fund, ending of Council Tax Benefit, draconian sanctions on those deemed to have not actively sought work and more are all measures that have and will cause severe hardship.
The Act, in particularly targets sick and disabled people causing them immense hardship and unnecessary suffering.The government are bleeding the people dry, what more do they want, well before they get the chance lets give them the shirts off of our backs.


You may already be aware that people will be sending their shirts to 10 Downing street.
Several people do not just want to send their shirts they want to go to downing street in person to rip their shirts off of their backs and leave at the gates of Downing street or if brave enough chuck them over the gates !
Obviously it would be advisable to have a spare shirt depending on the weather.
It is suggested that we meet at 1.30pm at Trafalgar Square and then make our way to downing street and 2.00p

COME ALONG AND GIVE CAMERON THE SHIRTS OFF OF OUR BACKS AND PROTEST AGAINST THE BEDROOM TAX ! 100's registered to attend: Join us!.

    Sadly I cannot go to this as I am working, but I think it is a very important cause and normally I would love to go. I hope all those who do make it enjoy it!
