‘AXE THE BEDROOM TAX!’
‘AXE, axe the Bedroom Tax!’ chanted protesters outside the Royal Courts of Justice yesterday morning, before the opening of an appeal against the hated tax being brought by five disabled men and women.
‘The government is taking away any consideration for disabled people, grandmothers who have grandchildren to stay, and dads who have kids at weekends.
‘We’re determined to stick up for what everyone needs.
‘Everyone should support people who have various needs in the community.
‘We all have different needs and they should be recognised.’
Ariane Sacco, also from WinVisible, was carrying a placard with a photo of Stephanie Bottrill.
Paula Peters from Disabled People Against Cuts (DPAC), declared over the megaphone: ‘Duncan Smith, we want justice, if we win this appeal you will be breaking the law.
‘We have the right to appeal. The government tried to stop us making it, they are cutting legal aid.
‘Wake up – tomorrow it could be you,’ she warned passers-by. ‘We’ve been hounded, we’ve been persecuted.
‘If it wasn’t for carers, disabled people wouldn’t have a life. We demand justice, we will never stop fighting for it.’
