Disability activists prepare to protest against Atos
Wednesday, August 29, 2012
Protesters are preparing to launch a series of campaigns against Olympic sponsor and IT outsourcer Atos.
One of the campaigns will include a gathering outside Atos’ UK headquarters this afternoon, in remembrance of those who have died since being declared fit for work by the group.
The demonstrations are aimed at highlighting perceived failings of Atos’ role in assessing disability employment support allowance.
The Independent revealed today that more than 40 doctors and nurses employed by the French IT company, had been reported for professional misconduct.
