Picket of Atos Glasgow May 12th

Over a dozen claimants and supporters managed to get our message out about Atos, that 'They Rob From The Poor To Give To The Rich' to hundreds of shoppers and people going home from work outside the Atos offices at 45 Gordon Street in the centre of Glasgow between 5pm and 6pm. Banners proclaimed that 'Atos Are Making The Sick Pay For The Greedy Bankers Debt. 'Atos Make A Profit Out Of The Misery Of The Sick' was screamed out to passersby. Many people were supportive and stopped to ask more about Atos. Many others who stopped to talk already knew about Atos having been through the distressing process of the medical assessment themselves or they knew someone who had been in the same situation. Passing postal workers said that they supported us 100%. Even a Community Support Officer stopped to ask for advice. New people signed up to take part in the next anti-Atos demo on Monday 6th June between 6pm and 8pm at the Atos recruitment evening at the assessment centre, Corunna House, 29 Cadogan Street. Hits on our website are going through the roof again.
