The Conservative Party Conference is taking place at Manchester in October. Disabled People Against the Cuts are organising two protests on Monday 5th and Wednesday 7th October during the week of the Tory party conference actions, and would like to support as many DPAC members to come to Manchester and attend our demonstrations, the details of the actions can be found here.
Many of DPAC members need additional support in order to travel and take part in a protest. The coaches being supplied by the Peoples’ Assembly for travel to Manchester are not accessible for many disabled people, and accessible coaches are incredibly expensive and have space for one wheelchair user.
BAPS and CADDSS have been collaborating with DPAC and supported by this courageous organisation since it was formed. DPAC members had travelled to Barnet to speak in our public meetings and protests, have supported Maria Nash in her challenge of the council during the Judicial Review of the privatisation in Barnet and had marched with us on various occasions including in the blizzard of the Barnet Spring march in 2013.
Let us support them now! You can read more here about why sponsorship is needed, and donate from the same page.
