Tell the world what is happening to disabled people in the UK. Join Disabled People Against Cuts to protest against the grave and systematic violations of disabled peoples rights by the UK government through welfare reform, as evidenced in the United Nations inquiry findings published last week.http://www.ohchr.org/EN/HRBodies/CRPD/Pages/InquiryProcedure.aspx

For DPACs response see: http://dpac.uk.net/2016/11/dpacs-rebuttal-of-damian-greens-denials-about-the-un-report/

I, Daniel Blake is in cinemas across the country and a UN inquiry, has found reliable evidence of grave and systematic violations of disabled peoples rights by the UK government due to welfare reform.

However we still have welfare reform and things are worse now than they were when the UN conducted their enquiry and set to get even worse; we still have the WCA, the bedroom tax, changes to Access to Work and a social care support system in crisis but everyday more disabled people are losing essential income through PIP assessments, the benefit cap is about to be lowered and the introduction of Universal Credit will make thousands of households with disabled members worse off.

With people from all over the globe tweeting and looking at the hashtag #IDPD2016, this is our chance to tell the whole world what is happening in the UK – this is our chance to embarrass and shame the government over the atrocities they have perpetrated against us.
