  1. is there a demo in London?

  2. Leicester, Wednesday 18th April, 12- 2 pm at the Clocktower, Unite Community and friends supporting DPAC.

  3. Can Swindon not do a protest?

    • Unfortunately we don’t have a DPAC group in Swindon! If you would be interested in starting a Swindon DPAC, get in contact at It’s not as difficult as it sounds, we can assist with advice and such. It doesn’t need to be a big group either, a handful of like-minded disabled people working together can create a DPAC presence. That’s how DPAC itself was formed, ‘just people’ getting together to oppose something they could see as wrong, and it took off! Why not give it a go?

  4. I live in the north, almost in Scotland, and totally ignored by government as if anywhere north of hull or Manchester doesn’t exist so I won’t be attending either, but best wishes to all those who do
    Eric from Newcastle!

  5. I’m in scotland so can’t attend wish everyone the best of luck and hope for clear sky’s. This needs the media’s attention it’s turning into a human rights nightmare.goodluck

  6. I’m in Scotland can’t get to any of those places although I wish you all the very best of luck and hopefully it will be a nice day despite the thing that’s being protested which is horrible. Best wishes.

  7. Any demo,s taking place in cornwall?

  8. There is a Website that has been set up, which will have a lot of information about Universal Credit, including a serious matter that is likely to be introduced later on.
    Universal Credit will no longer be a benefit.
    The site is being built but is live. It is hoped that the UC information will be there by Monday 9th April 2018. So plenty of time before the demonstrations.
    I will also have posted the times and locations of each demo. Parliament returns from their Easter recess Monday 16th April 2018, so the demo will be ideal.
    Prime Minister’s Question time is 12:00 on the 18th, so as near or at this time the better.
    The website is

  9. DPAC Ceredigion will be having a demo outside the job centre, Cardigan. Please see our face book page for more details.
