Thanet Petition: Stop Attacks On Benefits
THANET PETITION: Stop the Attacks on Benefits • Cuts in benefits are an unjust attack on the poor. Cuts concentrated on Housing Benefit are already breaking up families, communities and support networks. They will mean poverty, debt and evictions. • We oppose all cuts in benefits and tax credits. We did not cause the banking and economic crisis and will not be scapegoated to pay for it. • We reject false divisions and stigmatisation of people who are low-paid or unpaid. • We oppose all evictions and legal action against those hit by benefit cuts and support all actions taken in defense. • We support Thanet Benefit Justice Campaign in fighting all the cuts to our hard won benefits system. We call on Thanet District Council and local Housing Associations to not evict tenants due to the 'bedroom tax' imposed by the Con Dem government.
