#SaveILF Urgent Call - mass action to save the Independent Living Fund on Tue Jan 6th 1.30pm at the House of Commons
Following the loss of our court case against the closure of the Independent Living Fund (ILF) we need as many disabled people and their supporters to join us for a mass visit to parliament. We need you to be there and be seen.
At the moment only the Green Party have said they willkeep the ILF open, Labour have shockingly refused to commit to do this. That is in spite of them paying lip service to the ideal of independent living when in reality all they offer is empty rhetoric.
We must stop disabled people being pushed back into the margins of society, we will not go back into the institutions, our place is in the community alongside our family and friends and neighbours and we are fighting to stay.
Join us for a DPAC- style lobby of parliament on January 6th 2015. Let’s kick of next year’s Revenge Tour campaigning by making sure we let politicians know we are still here and are neither going away nor allowing ourselves to become prisoners in institutions or our own homes.
We will meet in the central hall just through security and suggest people arrive for 1.30pm to allow time to get through security. Contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org if you want to meet up beforehand, have any specific access needs or need help towards travel costs.
‘Cos we’re not taking no for an answer'!
