Don’t Get Mad Get Political!

The new Mental Health Resistance Network is hosting a half day meet for us to get more organized.

The Public Law Project has been supporting the Network in trying to get a Judicial Review of the Work Capability Assessment which is designed to get sick and distressed people off benefits.

The Network’s solicitor, Ravi Low-Beer, will be speaking about Judicial Reviews.

Friday 19th August 2011 from 12.00pm to 4.00pm

at Goldsmiths Student Union(Student Union Bar)Goldsmiths, University of London,

Dixon RoadLondon SE14 6NW

(Near New Cross Gate and New Cross Rail stations)

All Survivors, Disabled People and Allies welcome on:

A Half Day conference

Facing enormous cuts to benefits and services, we mental health Survivors are stressed out bigtime.

We find ourselves demonized by the right wing press (again) and the ConDem government. How stupid and cruel politicians of all parties are being beggars belief. Or do they believe we should all be beggars?
