International Week of Virtual Protest Against Atos Origin

Protest Day - Monday at 00:30 - 15 May at 23:30

As part of the National Week of Action Against Atos Origin we are calling for a virtual protest to be held across the world!
Please show your support for the thousands of benefit claimants who have been mistreated by Atos ‘Healthcares’ medical testing which has stripped benefits from people with serious illnesses or disabilities.
In the run up to the week of action please show your support by sharing the facebook group, blogging, tweeting, writing to local newspapers and helping to ensure that all events around the country directed at Atos are successful. Details of all events and protests can be found at:
Please also share this page and let’s make our disgust at these poverty pimps heard across the world.
Then during the week itself let’s make sure Atos Origin know exactly how we feel by contacting them, complaining and exposing their grubby money making scheme which has already led to suicides.
They can be found on twitter at: @AtosOriginBlog, @Atos_Origin, @AtosOrigin_News or search for more Atos twitter feeds:!/who_to_follow/search/atos%20origin
Atos press office can be reached on: Tel : +44 20 7830 4233 or the UK Press Officer is at: – keep them busy.
