PROTESTORS SAY NO TO MAXIMUS AND THE WORK CAPABILITY ASSESSMENT

Over 30 towns and cities held protests on 2nd March against the involvement of sinister US based outsourcing company Maximus in the despised Work Capability Assessments.

In Edinburgh protestors braved freezing temperatures to besiege the Maximus Assessment centre at Argyle House, Lady Lawson Street. Protests took place as far away as Canada where Ontario Coalition Against Poverty took to the streets in  solidarity.
