The campaign against the Bedroom Tax and other benefit cut is gathering strength and anger after 1 April.  50+ protests round the country on 30 March drew up to 26,000 people see Mirror report  and  BBC report  

As Ministers stoop to new depths in trying to stigmatise people claiming benefits, Benefit Justice is helping to build united protests and campaigns locally and nationally, linking disabled peoples organisations, tenants, trade union, Workfare and other groups and campaigners.  

Action dates:

13 April UKUncut action against the Bedroom Tax – see ukuncut.org.uk  or www.facebook.com/ukuncut 
            Haringay (North London)  1,000 Mothers march 

20 April Further Bedroom Tax protests are planned including: Cardiff, Corby, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Leeds, London, Kidderminster, Manchester, Plymouth, Redcar (more are likely so please check locally)

11 May Benefit Justice Summit2 at Central Hall Westminster
With Welsh Tenants Federation, Billy Hayes (CWU), John McDonnell MP, DCH, DPAC, Unite and PCS unions and Bedroom Tax/Benefit campaigns from across England, Scotland and Wales.  Sign up now: benefitjustice.wordpress.com and see leaflet here
