DPAC Week of Action Logo with "DPAC Week of Action, September 4-10th 2016" underneathThe third day of our week of action is the National Day of Protest on Tuesday 6th September.

Previously we’ve had national days of protest about PIP and WCA, but this time we are widening the target of the action to anything and everything.

  • DPAC North East are holding a static protest in a public square in Gateshead to highlight Claimant Deaths
  • Croydon and Bromley DPAC are protesting at the local Job Centre to highlight the excessive level of Sanctions being handed out there
  • Bradford PA will be protesting at their ATOS PIP Assessment Centre
  • and Norfolk DPAC will be protesting against an inaccessible Disability Assesment Centre in Norwich

More protests around the country will be posted soon,, so keep checking back.

But if there isn’t a protest near you to take part in and there is an issue you want to raise in your area, consider organising an event yourself, It doesn’t have to be massive, it could be just you and some friends handing out some leaflet in a public place, all forms of protest count and make a difference.

If you are interested in organising a protest, we can send you some materials to help, and we can advertise your event on this page, so email us at for more info.
