Just wanted to add my support to the Hardest Hit protest being held today in London. My son isn't well enough to travel that far and I need to stay here to help with care. I'd be there if I could but like many disabled people and carers it just isn't possible. Thank you to the disabled people who are protesting against the cuts for us. There is a virtual protest on Facebook if you want to support that way - on.fb.me/lcs3jh
The reports seem to show a good humoured march with a few high profile people, people 'chanting' in sign language etc. Wish I could have been there. Having said that, there's so far little report of it in the mainstream news - I suppose that comes of not breaking windows. I believe this is the beginning of a movement where disabled people and carers start standing up for themselves - even if they need a frame or a chair to do it. The cuts for us are real and hitting already with local authority service reductions, closure of facilities already happening, care packages being called in for 'review'.
If you're disabled, stand with us, if you're not, stand alongside us.
