Two Nottingham residents, who were arrested on 30 September 2011 at a peaceful protest outside the Atos medical assessment offices in Stoney Street Nottingham, appeared at Nottingham Magistrates Court on Friday 25 November 2011. With a large number of protestors supporting them outside the Magistrates Court, both pleaded “​not guilty”​ to the charge of aggravated trespass. The “​Atos Two”​ are now waiting for their trial on Monday 27 February 2012.

The protest outside Atos Healthcare offices in Nottingham is part of a much wider campaign fighting against what many see as the government’​s unfair and unjustified attack on disabled people and people with long-term health problems. Atos Healthcare has been severely criticised for its treatment of vulnerable people and is viewed as having played, and continues to play, a significant role in the government’​s measures designed to undermine the very real and genuine needs of people with disabilities and long-term health problems.
