Well done and SOLIDARITY to our sisters and brothers in DPAC Cardiff on a fantastic demonstration!
(Commentary by Liza Van Zyl’s – one of the organisers)
The wonderful Jonathan Williams, disabled through military service and chucked on the scapheap by Atos.
Jonathan is the Cardiff spokesperson for Disabled People Against Cuts, and is a true hero.

Youtube footage of the end of the protest when the corpses are dispersing. The most striking image here is the complete absence of traffic in Cardiff city centre’s busiest through-road. The police had cleared out all the stuck traffic by then, but the knock-on must have brought chaos to the entire city centre. Not bad for a bunch of crips, nutters, and assorted Atos-Destroyed and ConDem-Discarded. We have lost everything, all we have left is our ill, broken, malfunctioning bodies. Which turn out to be pretty useful for blocking roads. We will keep doing this so long as Atos keeps killing disabled people: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=awl4HuPkXHo&sns=fb
