Gill Thompson’s petition to David Cameron: ‘Hold an inquiry into benefit sanctions that killed my brother’

Some time ago we published a response from a social worker to one of our pieces on homelessness. She wrote:

If a homeless woman comes into my office on a Friday afternoon I’m required to give her what she asks for, whether it’s accommodation, food, clothing or money. All four, if she asks for them.

If a homeless man comes into my office on a Friday afternoon, I’m required to send him back onto the street with nothing.

The state’s brutality towards men in crisis situations knows no bounds. I ask you to join me in signing this petition, relating to a former soldier killed by the state. Thank you.
