Letter to the ICC at the Hague Re Mistreatment of the Disabled and Sick

https://you.38degrees.org.uk/petitions/letter-to-the-icc-at-the-hague-re-mistreatment-of-the-disabled-and-sick

To: Mrs. Fatou Bensouda, ICC Prosecutor

Dear Mrs. Fatou Bensouda

We are aware that Mr Samuel Miller has written to you to ask if it possible to file an ICC complaint against several British Ministers—namely, Iain Duncan Smith, Chris Grayling, and Maria Miller for their role in the draconian welfare reforms and the resultant deaths of our society’s most vulnerable.

We, the undersigned, are adding our voices to Mr Miller's request for answers to the following questions:

Are austerity deaths of the sick and disabled in the U.K. considered a crime against humanity by the ICC?

Would the UNCRPD be taken into consideration by the court?

Do you believe that the sick and disabled of Britain have a justiciable ICC case?

Why is this important?

I am sure many of you are aware of the measures that the Govt has introduced to root out the supposed fraudsters claiming Disability and Sickness Benefits. This is being carried out by a company called Atos, based on a system produced by an American Insurance Company called Unum, which has been declared unfit in the US.

The result of this decision by the Govt is the deaths of approximately 70 people every week who have been declared fit for work by Atos. It is alleged many of these people are dying in poverty, and many more are forced into poverty after being declared fit for work because they can't get work, or cannot complete the work fare element of JSA.

While you have your health, none of this matters. But one simple mishap could mean you finding yourself on the receiving end of this, and I am convinced you would not have to look too far to find someone in your social circles who is also suffering at the hands of this system.

The letter written by Samuel Miller has a long list of links to support this, and if a Canadian is going to put the effort into helping us, surely we need to speak up with him.

from what i gather the un rights lot are objecting to the cap giving families on benefits extra only for the 1st 2 kids, something i having been harrassed by such families agree with, they aren't interested in treatment of the disabled

I think someone must care or else there wouldn't have been the u turn on PIP. Certainly some people have sympathy for the physically disabled. Maybe the Tories realised even some of their voters thought it was a step too far. Not all of their voters are die hard Tories, though..
