Sign the Petition to

UK Government: Department for Work and Pensions

If you live in the UK please sign the offical petition @ http://epetitions.direct.gov.uk/petitions/38182

The government intends to abolish Disability Living Allowance and replace it with Personal Independence Payments. We feel the government is doing this because it is clear by awarding the contract to assess Personal Independence Payments to ATOS, it is a means to make savage cuts welfare to the most vulnerable in society. We believe peoples lives will be lost as a result of the scrapping of DLA for Personal Independence Payments assessed by ATOS.

Because it's the right thing to do.....

The Governments own statistics show that only 0.5% of claimants are getting DLA that should not be, yet they want to cut it by 20%. They say that they want to stop misuse of the system but the figures above clear show that it has nothing to do with misuse and everything to do with cost cutting and forcing people with a disability to not be able to cope. It has been shown that many people that have gone through assessments by ATOS in regard to ESA and told they are fit for work have then appealed and be told that ATOS was wrong. on top of all that many people that have a disability have been dying after being told they are fit for work or because the thought of going through the assessment/appeal has drove them to taking their own lives. Help us say NO to what the UK government and ATOS are doing. Profit should never come before life. thank you
