The dates for Hardest Hit action this October have now been confirmed. The TUC are holding a march on Saturday 20th October in London and we are planning for a large contingent of Hardest Hit activists to join this.
The following week will see widespread protests that make clear to the government the strength of feeling that exists across the UK against their unjustified and unfair cuts to benefits and services.
We hope to get strong media coverage during the week, not only of local and regional campaign actions but also of two pieces of research. The first will highlight the impact of the cuts (current and future) on 50 disabled people, providing a face and voice to the 500,000 who will lose their DLA/PIP. The second piece of research will seek to challenge the negative public attitudes towards disabled people that the DWP and some sections of the media have been peddling.
More information and details about how to get involved in your area is coming soon.
