Against DWP Reforms for the genuinely sick and disabled.
Government Minister for Health,UK Parliament
More Info at:
We believe that the constant vilification of sick and disabled claimants as work shy scroungers by the press has a great deal to do with increasing levels of harassment. We also believe that the DWP and successive government ministers and MPs have knowingly or recklessly fed stories and quotes to the press about claimants, which have drastically increased the levels of press hostility in recent years.
Amongst the example of what constitutes harassment, the EHRC include:
derogatory, demeaning or humiliating remarks
offensive or patronising language
threats and intimidation
We need all sick and disabled claimants and their carers to sign this petition and help us to place the blame for the increasing hatred and harassment of disabled people where much of it belongs at the doors of the DWP and its ministers.
