The Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) is constantly in the news. It is also frequently the subject of protests. So far, people have struggled to change the notorious department’s ways. But now, activists have launched a new campaign. And they’re calling for a “Welfare Rebellion”.
The DWP: time to rebel

Alex Tiffin is the writer behind the Universal Credit Sufferer website. A claimant himself, he writes about the DWP and welfare-related issues. But now, he’s turned his attention to campaigning.

As he wrote on his website, he thinks we need a Welfare Rebellion. He said:

On average 48 people die a day because of austerity, that’s roughly 16,000 a year. To me, even 1 death because of a political choice is too much. That’s why I’m calling for what I am calling a Welfare Rebellion. The #PeoplesVote march proved that A to B protests matter little to the government. Therefore, we need a more proactive campaign.
you may have heard of the climate campaign group Extinction Rebellion (ER) and their highly public campaign in London over the past few weeks. Through peaceful non-violent acts of civil disobedience, they have gridlocked central London and blockaded government buildings amongst other things. People are talking about it.

And it’s Extinction Rebellion’s methods that inspired Tiffin. He told The Canary:

After seeing Extinction Rebellion and their highly effective campaign, I asked why people aren’t doing something similar about the effects of austerity. People are literally dying, yet it’s a struggle to get people out as those affected are usually vulnerable or unable to.

Most campaigns always centre on London, and I 100% do not want that.

We need to act up and down the UK. Disrupting one city is an inconvenience; doing it nationwide will have to draw a government response. Marching up and down does nothing.

Looking at what`s happening over in France too right now is a mirror image of Conservative rule. Macron is a Tory, May is a Tory, TRUMP is a Tory....to name but a few and isn`t it not surprising that all three nations are split? Money talks and if you don`t have any, you will be the one paying the price. What we need here is not just radical action, but to gain momentum from those who are in the `JAM` camp, Just About Managing, groups because they are sitting on the edge of austerity as we already see it and more and more WORKING people will be finding their lives under some, if not total control of Universal Credit at some point.

We need far more coverage, not just of how people with addiction or those who we see on the news speaking about homelessness, but a PROPER DEBATE about the reality of UC and not just the soundbites of `We are supporting more people into work` or `They are using a TEST & LEARN` approach`. That`s what you do in experiments, not on people.

Walking through the door of a job centre should not feel intimidating, EVER. Yet this is what they (The Tories) have created.
