Justice Mail Action 16th March 2015

Dear Justice Mail Friends,
 
If you commit a crime, no criminal court in the UK is allowed to make you go hungry as a punishment. But if you’re late for an appointment at the Jobcentre, they can remove all your income and leave you unable to feed yourself or your family for weeks at a time. 
 
In 2013-14, around 100,000 children were affected by benefit sanctions, and nearly seven million weeks of sanctions were handed out to people claiming benefits.
 
Please use the link below to email your MP. Ask them to press their own party to commit to reviewing the unjust benefit sanctions regime.
