George Rolph is now on his 14th day of hunger strike in protest against the UK Government’s ongoing cruelty to the vulnerable people in UK society through medical assessments undertaken by French IT firm ATOS on behalf of the DWP.
Today, Facebook decided that George’s page held no positive worth to them, that truth has no place and that the people of the UK should suffer in silence…they removed George’s page and in turn, obliterated his support network. This has only served to anger his supporters further, both nationally and internationally, as his fight gains further momentum.
George had his benefits reinstated several days ago and the DWP also made an arrangement to visit him at his home to see if he would qualify for an extra benefit. It seems they thought that this tactic would silence him and they would prevent any further bad publicity…but as George has stated many times, his hunger strike will continue until the government review their policies so others will not have to suffer what he has endured. He is doing this for us, for those who have already died, through suicide and stress-related illnesses as a direct result of how ATOS has treated them.
The BBC have been contacted by many people urging them to run this story in their National News (including myself) and so far, we as people have been conveniently ignored.
So it is with urgent need that I request you read all of the links below and do what you can to support George and of course, the people of the UK, while there is still time for George to experience the triumphs…for that is one thing NOT on George’s side – time.
