  1. A magnificent effort by all the protesters and organisers of the occupation. You should all be very proud of yourselves for really putting yourselves on the line on behalf of the countless thousands of sick and disabled people who weren’t able to attend. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
    I will donate to DPAC right now.

  2. Have shared this on twitter and on, and urge everyone to share as widely as possible. There were BBC and ITV crews there yesterday but they were prevented from filming on Cameron’s orders.

  3. What another excellent representation by DPAC, as to how the Conservatives have treated people with disabilities in the last 6 or so years; Daily Politics even made a reference to your demonstation; maybe you should contact them, and ask if you can go on to their programme! Well done to everyone involved.
