Following the launch in Westminster last week members of Bromley and Croydon DPAC got stuck in with the new #TrashTheTories campaign on Monday 8 May. We set up a stall outside the Bromley campus of London South East Colleges to encourage young students and staff members to register to vote in the general election and to use their vote to help stop Theresa May’s Conservatives on June 8th.

We had a great response with students committing to register and use their vote. Some were unaware of the election before talking to us but will now use their vote in solidarity with disabled people. Getting out there and talking to people about what 7 years of vicious cuts have done to us can make a real difference in building an anti-Tory vote.
Over 200 copies of our new election leaflet were distributed – you can download a printable version of it here. If you can why not print some to give out, or organise with your friends or local DPAC group to set up a stall outside your local college, in your high street, at a train station or anywhere else you might meet people who you can convince to help us #TrashTheTories on June 8th.

If you want help or advice on setting up a stall – getting hold of leaflets in bulk or anything else about getting involved contact us at mail@dpac.uk.net

If you are unable to participate in street campaigning due to your impairment or cuts to your support you can still get involved with our online shenanigans.

  1. Great work. It’s worth remembering that they will need a National Insurance number to register. They can make a 5-minute phone call to the NI people on 0300 200 3500 and they will receive their NI number in ten days.
