Important workfare update: Sally Army look to Hitler for inspiration

The Salvation Army are sinking to new lows.  On the 7th March they released a statement which attempted to defend the indefensible: forcing the sick and disabled onto mandatory workfare schemes.  The full statement is here: http://www.facebook.com/salvationarmyuk/posts/547732655258369?comment_id=6130496&offset=0&total_comments=156

The most despicable part of this wholly despicable, whining self justification is this line:
“At The Salvation Army, we have a history of believing in emancipation through employment”.  Sound familiar? 

“Arbeit macht frei” – “work will set you free” – was the motto appearing over the entrance to many of Hitler’s concentration camps, where millions of Jews, Gypsies, and lest we forget, disabled people were murdered by the Nazis.  The Nazis similarly believed the disabled were a burden on society, rhetoric we are all familiar with in Britain in 2013.

I don’t make these comparisons lightly.  I know they’re shocking.  I know they’re outrageous. 

We should be shocked.  We should be outraged.

Join the online day of action.  Tell them what you think of a charity that purports to help the lowliest and most vulnerable colluding in this government’s war on the poor.

Peaceful protestors at the Elephant and Castle branch were also manhandled and falsely accused of assault.  Tell them what you think of that, too.
