Disabled campaigners set up Brighton anti-cuts group

Posted On 16 May 2011 at 6:08 pm

A new group has been set up in Brighton to protest about the effect of government spending cuts.

The inaugural meeting of Brighton Disabled People Against Cuts is being held on Thursday (19 May) at the Brighton Centre, starting at 7pm.

The organisers said: “When the ConDems talk about us ‘in it together’, nothing could be further from the truth.

“Following the thousands-strong Hardest Hit demonstration on Saturday May 11, this Thursday’s meeting is a step towards continuing to unite all those affected by the government’s unjust, vicious cuts programme.

“With disability rights and welfare under attack, while bankers continue to receive tax breaks and record bonuses, it is vital that all those hardest hit and all those who oppose the ConDems’ cuts come together to show our strength and support for an alternative that truly protects the poor and vunerable and makes the rich pay.

“If you can’t take away my disability, don’t take away my welfare.

“Don’t disable disabled people.”
