After the Easter break, the Royal wedding/Bin Laden mise-en-scene and the May Bank holiday, things seem set to gradually get back to the regular routine. The whole period reminded me of the Christmas season, when many, if not most of the services come to a stand still and people in need of assistance are kept on hold.
In a few hours, on Monday the 9th, the National Week of Action Against Atos Origin will start.
This is a week long of protests and events that are set to take place all around the UK, outside the offices and testing centres operated by Atos Origin. Here the list of a few locations: http://benefitclaimantsfightback.wordpress.com/

'This testing system has already led to people with terminal illnesses and severe medical conditions being declared fit for work and having benefits cut. GP’s are ignored in favour of decisions made by Atos Origin’s computer', the source says.
Obviously inventing a job full of rewards for ATOS workers, organise a grand wedding for the Royals and support wars in other continents are the key points of progress in the present society. What's the use in supporting society's parasites or keep them ALIVE?
There's rumors that say that ATOS workers are trained at Auschwitz's standards.
