Saturday 22nd October
Rally 12.30 – 13.30
Old Market Square
Disabled people in the East Midlands, along with their families and friends, are taking to the streets in Nottingham to protest against Government cuts to disability benefits and services. Join us and help to make sure all our voices are heard.
The rally is taking place in Old Market Square, just outside Nottingham Council House, from 12.30 – 13.30. There will be music and poetry from inspirational local group Moveable Feast and speakers who will join us to share their views on the proposed changes. We will also be joined by a number of local people who can speak from their own experiences about what the proposed cuts to benefits and services will mean to them as disabled people trying to live independent and fulfilling lives.

Please also help us spread the word about Hardest Hit. Nottingham is one of many cities across the Midlands that have been severely affected by budget cuts. Across the region people are seeing deep cuts in services such as social care and transport, which they rely on to remain independent. Please come along, and bring as many friends and family as you can. Help us to send a clear message to the Government: stop these cuts.
