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.

About Mike Buchanan

I'm a men's human rights advocate, writer, and publisher. My primary focus is leading the political party I launched in 2013, Justice for Men & Boys (and the women who love them). I still work actively on two campaigns I launched in early 2012, Campaign for Merit in Business and the Anti-Feminism League. In 2014 I launched The Alternative Sexism Project, aiming to raise public understanding that the sexism faced by men and boys has far more grievous consequences than the sexism faced by women and girls.
