Disabled campaigners launch protests to urge people to vote against ‘nasty, benefit-cutting’ Tories.
DISABLED activists protested in Westminster yesterday as part of their campaign to oust the “nasty” Tory government from office in the forthcoming general election.
Campaign group Disabled People Against Cuts (DPAC) is urging people across Britain to register and vote to ensure that the Conservative government, which was shamed last year by the UN for its “grave and systematic violation of the rights of disabled people,” is booted out on June 8.
DPAC’s Ellen Clifford said: “The cowardly bully Theresa May wants us to believe that she offers strong and stable leadership but there is nothing strong or stable about persecuting disabled people.”
She said DPAC was unsurprised that Ms May was trying to avoid public debate in this election “as she would be called upon to defend the indefensible actions of her nasty government.”
