Fat cats storm DWP

UPDATE: New pictures

Thirty protesters have just occupied DWP offices in central London to protest against the new welfare reform bill. The protesters – from the London Coalition Against Poverty (LCAP) – are dressed as fat cats and bankers and are running about the offices throwing paper money around and thanking the DWP for bailing them out by taking money from the poor. Approximately twenty police officers have just arrived on the scene. Arrests are likely.

See yesterday’s post from Anne Marie O’Reilly, a member of LCAP, to find out more about them.
