The ‘Hardest Hit’ are set to protest across the UK

 

Disabled people across the UK are being urged to take part in a series of protests across the country against cuts to services and benefits.

The local and regional protests will take place this autumn as a follow-up to May’s hugely successful national Hardest Hit protest in London.

The UK Disabled People’s Council (UKDPC) is again working with members of the Disability Benefits Consortium to organise the follow-up protests, which will take place on 21 and 22 October.

UKDPC hopes many of the protests will be led by disabled people’s organisations (DPOs).

On Friday 21 October, the aim is for disabled people and other activists to lobby MPs at their weekly constituency surgeries. The following day, there will be marches, demonstrations and other protests across the UK.
