Hardest Hit Protest comes to Newcastle

STOP THESE CUTS is the message from disabled people across the North East as people are encouraged to demonstrate, along with their families and friends in the streets of Newcastle on 22 October 2011. The Hardest Hit march will start at 10:30am, from the Bigg Market to the Monument to protest against Government cuts to disability benefits and services.

Join the demonstration and help to make sure all their voices are heard. Speakers include MP for Wansbeck Ian Lavery, Clare Williams from the Norther Public Services Alliance and Kevin Rowan the TUC Regional Secretary who will share their views on the proposed changes. The Demonstration will also be joined by a number of local people who can speak from their own experience about what the proposed cuts to benefits and services will mean to them as disabled people trying to live independent and fulfilling lives!

Please click on map of Newcastle City Centre showing where the Bigg Market and the Monument can be found.

The purpose of the Hardest Hit is to bring together disabled people from across the North East to allow them to stand against the cuts to DLA and unfair changes to Employment Support Allowance.
Whether your disabled or not you can show your support by joining Hardest Hit demonstration and listening to the stories of disabled people and hearing of the support of key local figures from politicians to civil society leaders. Together the North East can show that the people across the city and wider region are very supportive of the Hardest Hit campaign and send a clear message to this government.
