DLA and AA fight-back begins


An astonishing 5,254 people have signed up to our No More Benefits Cuts campaign in the first 24 hours since it went live.The campaign aims to shame politicians into dropping proposals in the care green paper to abolish DLA and AA and hand the cash over to local social services to administer instead.Already, all over the country claimants and their supporters have begun to raise opposition to the planned cuts. We’ve received literally hundreds of emails from people who have posted on forums, contacted everyone in their address book, emailed their MP and written to the local press.
