Remembrance Day for DWP/Atos deaths

Vox Political‘s friend Jim Moore is asking for people across the UK to stop and observe two minutes’ silence at 11am today (December 3), as a mark of respect for the people who have died as a result of the welfare ‘reforms’ administered by the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP), Atos and any other organisation involved in what he described as “this set of senseless deaths”.

Citizens of the UK have been paying their respects to the long-term sick and disabled people who have lost their lives while going through the DWP/Atos benefits process since 2012, when it was first revealed that 10,600 had lost their lives between January and November 2011.

Since then, the DWP has refused to provide any information on subsequent deaths, in spite of several high-profile Freedom of Information requests.

Please take the time to show your own respect – not only for the known deceased, but also for (it is feared) the many thousands whose deaths are, as yet, unknown to the public.
