Disabled people fight back with call for U-turn on cuts
Wednesday 23rd March 2016
DISABLED people will gather at Parliament today to demand George Osborne’s resignation and a full reversal of benefit cuts that have “driven people to death.”
Disabled People Against Cuts (DPAC) has called a snap protest in the wake of a Budget in which the Chancellor cut personal independence payments for people who need help getting dressed and using the toilet.
Mr Osborne was forced to scrap the cruel cut this week in the face of a Tory rebellion which risked bringing down his whole Budget.
But DPAC will highlight today how disabled people are still suffering from cuts to employment and support allowance (ESA), cuts to local councils’ care services and the closure of the independent living fund.
Spokeswoman Paula Peters said: “Many disabled people have died due to the constant fear and mental distress caused by ‘welfare reforms’.”
The MP for Preseli Pembrokeshire is a patron of Pembrokeshire Mencap, which represents people with mental-health issues. Yet he voted for the cut to ESA which will deprive many of the charity’s clients of £30 a week.
“You should hang your head in shame,” it states.
A protest demonstration will be staged outside Mr Crabb’s constituency office in Haverfordwest from 11am to 1pm on Saturday April 2.
Britain: Work is the government’s snake oil cure for disabilities, says LINDA BURNIP.
Tory disregard for the United Nations Disability Committee’s damning report on governmental violations of disabled people’s human rights is despicable but not unexpected, writes LINDA BURNIP.
