You don’t need to take part in a direct action to be part of the Atos Games. Here we have a list of ways that you can be involved even if you only have a small amount of time to spare and from wherever you are.
i) Order a free sticker pack from DPAC and spread the message of opposition to the cuts and to Atos in your home, on your windows or wherever you go.
ii) Order or print off and cut out a stencil to create a piece of street art to carry the anti-cuts message across towns and cities throughout the country. We suggest that you stencil using damp sponges or brushes and water-based paints or chalk to avoid accusations of damage and be environmentally friendly – still a great effect!
iii) Make a black triangle badge to proudly wear the symbol that was once used by the Nazis to label the disabled people they exterminated. Easy to make using black card, a safety pin and selotape.
iv) Send us suggestions for chants or placard slogans to use on the actions next week.
iv)Write to your MP asking him/her to sign up to Early Day Motion 295 condemning the International Paralympic Committee’s promotion of Atos as its top sponsor and deploring the trauma and injustice caused by Atos’ Work Capability Assessments.
v) Sign Pat’s petition asking the government to stop and review the cuts which have been made to the benefits and services that are provided to disabled people. http://epetitions.direct.gov.uk/petitions/20968
vi) Join DPAC and be part of the growing resistance to government attacks on disabled people.
vii) Print off and hand-out information leaflets to let raise awareness about what the government’s welfare reform actually means for disabled people.
viii) Cut out and wear this ‘red peter’ Atos medal.
ix) Just a minute….tell a friend or stranger who knows nothing about ATOS exactly what’s happening.
x) Send us photos and stories of how you have been part of the Atos Games for our website and Facebook page.
