Starting Thursday 31st May, Manchester Against Benefit Cuts, alongside Manchester Coalition Against Cuts and others, will be supporting a week of action against Atos and their Tory friends. We hope to coordinate this with as many groups as possible, and make the week as big a success as we can. We will also be attempting to coordinate action with trade unionists in both Britain and France. If you are interested in getting involved, we will be having an open planning meeting next week , and will be meeting at the Manchester May Day march (see below for details). We hope to get as many people and groups behind this, and encourage everyone who wants to get involved to do so.
