As much as I enjoy the chat on here, I have recently felt the need to be more pro active and recently decided to devote some of my energies creating a community driven project that hopes to be a voice to end the sanction regime whoever might be in power.

It is a very much work in progress and will not be ready to go live until January 1st, by that I mean the site is only visible to those who know about it, search engines will not be indexing it, but until then it is almost fully functioning.

The more people join the team and contribute content it could go live earlier.

Take a look around see what you think of the idea, Join in if you wish I hope along with Welfare Central and other sites that support the cause we can be another Voice to add to the debate.

End Sanctions Now

Im 100% in Favour of more Active involvement;
If we all do nothing except sit back, Chat, Moan & Bitch we will get nowhere;
As I see it we Need NOW;
The End of Sanctions; UBI Introduced in the UK as soon as Possible,
A Political system for the Many, not just the Rich & Powerful 10%, As
we have got in power now.

I also am experimenting with an On-Line outreach, And will happily work with
anyone with similar Views and aims.
Let's get active.

Totally with you Paul on all your points, Now is the time to stand up together and take the fight to them.

There is no need to create a account unless you wish to make a comment, if you wish to join to help out in some way, write an article whatever then use the link at the top and will get back to you soon as possible.

As it is, it is very much a Work in progress so get in early and help shape the Campaign and site.

I hope this becomes a community driven project, anything is open to change as the Team builds, then it is the Team that makes the decisions.

There is no hierarchy as such we are all in this together I just started the ball rolling and hope others Join in to keep up the momentum.

The whole site is based on a creative common licence so no one owns any material it is in the Public domain we are all free download the whole site and publish it ourselves.

So your not happy with the way the site is going, and think I can do better, grab a copy of the whole site, upload it to your own site make a few easy changes and your free to carry on and improve it the way you think it should be.

This is also useful as a backup for everyone should I vanish, lose interest or go mad, I am not planning on either but it does give some reassurance to other users that any energies you put to the site will not be wasted.

The Domain name will always be the property of the site owner that is not transferable.

Back from the wilderness still working on my latest project, still not finished, rough in places, still needs a lot of work, but it is coming along.

I am going to make another big push this week and hopefully have JSA covered at least lol, take me a lifetime to cover all benefits and scenarios, anyways if you happen to pop along and see something wrong or misleading let me know.

Really like the site dboy and it`s a great idea to bring sanctions to the forefront because it`s not just about being part of the benefits system, it`s about the punitive cuts and fear that is created by it. You wrote:

So removing the sanction element then makes the welfare state what it truly should be.
A safety net those for whatever reason who are not working could then have at least peace of mind they have some semblance of stability so they can concentrate their time and effort getting back to work with help from the job centre, rather than the stress and worry having to play cat and mouse at each interrogation.

Cat & mouse indeed. We shouldn`t be feeling fearful or feel the need to be fighting against the system, but instead feel `okay` about being unemployed and not the burden on the tax payer they make people out to be. Not having a job is NOT a criminal offence, but look closely and compare the two. You might be surprised to find that someone in a civil court has the right to more than `rights` than someone on Universal Credit who is sanctioned for a NON criminal offence. For daring to forget to update their CV, or to arrive five minutes late for a work coach appointment when their bus was late or didn`t turn up. It`s ludicrous and if we don`t stand up to this, nothing will change.

Changing the government might be a start, but the wheels in motion won`t come to a grinding halt unless people vote for it with DEEDS and not just WORDS. Something the women`s liberation stood for and changed. WE can do the same if we try.

Thank you for taking a look, I think sanctions are the one thing that binds us all on benefits and increasingly those in work.

My grammar is poor ,sometime when I read back it sounds like Golum has written the article, it also difficult to proof read myself,t but I will keep chipping away editing and improving the readability of the articles and home page over the following week , but at least I have the bare bones now.

Again when I look at all the different groups and permutations, JSA, UC, ESA, IS, under 25, over 25, couples part time workers and so on, it would be a lifetimes work for one person to cover them all, so at the moment I am concentrating on areas that affect my situation, single 25 and over on JSA, then do the same with Universal Credit but some information is transferable.

I`ve just posted an article in the Sanctions Mash section that I came across from Al Jazeera news. Sanctions in the UK are seen as punitive and acting against people rather than helping. The article gives a true reflection of life for people who are at the brunt of sanctions and how their lives spiral downwards as a direct result and for nothing more than trivial things. I can`t believe we now live under such a draconian system that is supposed to give people help and a `hand up` not a prison sentence.

We need a welfare system without sanctions if we (the UK) are to be seen as ethical and supporting our most needy. Yet even the high courts overturn sanctions they say are a breech of human rights. What do the government do? Change the policy. They need to be holding a serious debate now about ending all sanctions and making the benefits system a level playing field.
