Over 80 activists attended the Disabled People Against the Cuts (DPAC) national conference last Saturday.

The conference heard speakers from DPAC, Black Triangle, Right to Work, Inclusion London, Disability Equality National Council and Disability Equality North West.

Mik Scarlet, an NUJ member and TV presenter, spoke too.

The conference discussed political questions such as the generalised fightback against austerity and disabled peoples’ role within that movement.

It also focused on the practical aims and demands of DPAC. A charter was drawn up and a steering committee elected.

The emphasis was on looking outwards, stressing the links that disabled people fighting the cuts have with everyone else under attack.
