Demonstration: Birmingham February 26th
January 29, 2011
Birmingham City Council are implementing £320 million of cuts which will have a drastic and very negative impact on provision of care and support for disabled people.
The eligibility criteria are to moved again to extra-critical only which will exclude huge numbers of disabled people in Birmingham from receiving the support they need to live inclusive and independent lives. We have submitted a FOI request to get more idea of numbers this would involve.
This protest is only a few days before the council meet to vote through the cuts. It is vital that we as disabled people have a presence at this demonstration.
Assemble Victoria Square, noon Saturday February 26th
