Protest in Wymondham this Friday 3rd March, 12 – 1.30pm. We will assemble at the Market Cross, Market Place, Wymondham, NR18 0AX and will make our way to George Freeman’s constituency office where his surgeries are held. Protest organised by Equal Lives
We need to let him know the strength of feeling about his comments and let him know that we won’t accept more cuts to PIP or any other welfare benefit for disabled people.
Mark Hartrison, CEO of Equal Lives said:
‘His comments about disability are crass and ignorant and belong in the last century. I suggest George reads the UN Inquiry judgement on the grave and systematic violations of disabled people’s rights by his Government and then implements the recommendations. This Government is continuing with the failed austerity policies of the Coalition which targeted disabled people for the harshest treatment. I really don’t understand why disabled people are being singled in this way for more cuts to our independence and living standards. What happened to this Governments commitment only made last year that cuts to PIP would not go ahead and there would be no more welfare cuts?’
We will be producing a flyer for the event which will be circulated ASAP.
If you are a constituent of George Freeman please try and fix an appointment to see him at his surgery this Friday morning.
