DPAC protest against ATOS, Jan 2011

The Olympics are over, but get ready for the ATOS Games. Timed to coincide with (but not disrupt) the Paralympic Games, the activist group Disabled People Against Cuts (DPAC) have planned “five days of action against a company that’s sponsoring the Paralympics but wrecking disabled people’s lives.”

In advance of the action, Donnacha DeLong spoke to Andy from DPAC and Joe from UK Uncut, who are supporting the ATOS Games, to find out what the plans are and where the groups hope to go from there.

McDonald’s Corporation v Steel & Morris known as “the McLibel case” was an English lawsuit filed by McDonald’s Corporation against environmental activists Helen Steel and David Morris (often referred to as “The McLibel Two”) over a pamphlet critical of the company. The original case lasted ten years, making it the longest-running libel case in English history.  The trial delivered a blow to a corporate giant’s sense of invisibility and Morris tells us why community is so important in the struggle.
