DPAC #AudioRiot Campaign Days 24 September 2021 – 4 October 2021

DPAC #AudioRiot Campaign Days 24 September 2021 – 4 October 2021


I wanted to share the following post from the Disabled People Against Cuts website before their important #AudioRiot Campaign Days This government are not listening to us when we say #CancelTheCut to Universal Credit and give #20More4All

It is vitally important that as many of us as possible join this campaign to pile pressure on the government and assist those with the greatest needs in society.



DPAC hasn’t gone away you know!


We’re back to doing what we best and we are going to be louder than ever!

This government are not listening to us when we say #CancelTheCut to Universal Credit and give #20More4All

So we need to start an #AudioRiot to make the government hear us!

We will not be silenced.

Sadly, we have to announce that the legacy benefit court case that was due to be heard on 28-29 September 2021 is delayed due to a lack of a judge!

On Monday 4th October 2021 as Chancellor Rishi Sunak gives an important speech to the Tory Party Conference, Manchester DPAC have organised an Ad Van with a mobile video screen to show videos of disabled people to speak the appalling truth to Tory party delegates about the impact of austerity cuts and the impact of the Coronavirus pandemic.
