Glasgow Against ATOS Picket

A break in the clouds this afternoon allowed the end of monthly picket of the Atos centre on Glasgow’s Cadogan Street to go ahead. Supporters of Fight Racism! Fight Imperialism!, The Socialist Party and the Accord, Black Triangle and 32 County Sovereignty Movement campaigns united to distribute advice sheets for claimants facing assessment and leaflets for the launch meeting of the ‘Glasgow Against ATOS’ campaign on Wednesday 10 October.

Over the coming months Fight Racism! Fight Imperialism! aim to escalate our action against Atos in Glasgow. We seek to do this in alliance and cooperation with all progressive groups and people – the Glasgow Against ATOS campaign can provide a framework for this unity. With a daily assault on the dignity and lives of the poor, sick and disabled across Britain and the 2014 Commonwealth Games in Glasgow, which Atos are helping to sponsor, fast on their way we say that now is the time to get organised!

To exploit the publicity drawn towards Atos through its involvement in the Commonwealth Games, to take a stand in defence of welfare services and rights for the present and future generations we urge you to attend and bring your views and ideas for action to the launch meeting.

Join and Build the Glasgow Against ATOS Campaign!

Oppose the war on welfare!

Send a message to the British ruling class – we won’t stand by and watch you destroy the lives of the young, middle aged and old!

Glasgow Against ATOS Launch Meeting
Wednesday 10 October, 7.30 - 9.30pm
Upstairs in the Piper Bar,             
George Square, Glasgow

  1. For information, the Daily Record has been campaigning over Atos this last week, an article every day. They have promoted the Labour party's supposed opposition to Atos- all without mentioning that it was the Labour party which laid out the plans for Atos and the cuts and the attack on welfare. While welcoming all and any campaigning against Atos we should never be silent about the Labour government's record.
