Time to end discrimination against people on benefits

What with millionaires evicting people who are up to date with their rent simply because they receive benefits and the abuse metered out following C4's Benefit Street, I think it is time for a campaign to end discrimination against people on benefits.

Almost all people who claim benefits, do so for very good reason. To label them as scroungers is simply wrong and to put them below others is blatant discrimination. The country has outlawed discrimination on the grounds of religion, race, sex and disability and it is time to do the same for people who require financial help to live (for whatever reason).

We need a campaign to end this discrimination!

In the meantime, please sign this petition: Channel 4 (@Channel4): Stop broadcasting Benefits Street and make a donation to a relevant charity for the harm caused
