Disability Activist Hunger Striking Against ATOS Until Friday
There will be a vigil against ATOS outside their Cardiff offices starting today Monday at 8am and ending on Friday at 5pm.
Disability activist Christos Palmer, one of the organisers of the vigil, is hunger striking until Friday.
Wales is a bit of a distance for me, so I can’t actually go to the event. But what strikes me about it is Christos’ hunger strike. If people are prepared to go to such extreme personal lengths to get rid of ATOS, the company’s actions are clearly having a very serious effect on their lives and/or the lives of those they know and love.
That’s why I’m writing this post and it’s why I’ve joined the event’s Facebook page. If you wish to keep up with the event, you can join the page by clicking the link above.
