As many of you know the DWP are appealing against the decision that the WCA is detrimental to those with mental health issues. DPAC wants to be there to support the Mental Health Resistance Network who originally won the case
The vigil will happen outside the front entrance, Royal Courts of Justice (The Strand, London, WC2A 2LL) on Monday 21st October at 12 noon until 2 pm.
The appeal will be heard in courtroom 72 Royal Courts of Justice, the case starts at 10.30 am.
The WCA is detrimental to everyone, but the obvious added stress, anxiety and lack of Atos professionalism in gaining supporting evidence is particularly severe for those with mental health issues.
This system is breaking and we must keep up the pressure for the inhumane WCA to be scrapped completely, as DPAC has always argued.
