London DPAC will be running a workshop on disability, austerity and resistance. Disabled people have been at the forefront of the fightback against the Coalition government for the past three years. Our rights and freedoms are facing an ideological attack of unprecedented magnitude under the excuse of austerity that is resulting in misery, poverty and death. Disabled people are not letting this happen to us without a fight. This workshop will explore the range of campaign tactics and alliances that have been built and what more we need to do in our struggle for an alternative to austerity founded in social justice and fairness.
