NATIONAL DAY OF ACTION ON SANCTIONS

n t sanctions

Join us on Wednesday 9th March for our National  Day of Action against Sanctions.
We’ll be demonstrating outside Body Shop on Briggate at 11.00 Wednesday 9th March in what we aim to be the biggest demonstration against benefit sanctions ever.

More and more people are facing benefit sanctions. Half a million people have had their benefits suddenly stopped by sanctions in the last 12 months.

That’s half a million people, many of whom have been plunged into poverty, unable to heat their homes or even eat. How is this meant to help prepare people for work?

Benefit sanctions must be fought against

These sanctions are cruel and handed out for ridiculous reasons such as:

  1. Share your story – we are looking for people who have been sanctioned to tell their story.
  2. We want to show the reality and impact on people’s lives – show your support – share on Twitter and Facebook #No2Sanctions Like us on Facebook.
