Make Some Noise with DPAC

Make Some Noise with DPAC

Action group Disabled People Against Cuts is hoping to make a big noise in its latest protest against Government policies.

Under the hashtag @AudioRiot, DPAC are urging people to ‘make some noise about the £20 cut to Universal Credit coming in September, about the reintroduction of sanctions and conditionality returning in October, about the discrimination against people on legacy benefits who did not receive the £20 to begin with, about the minimum income floor, the local area housing allowance and so much more including the disgraceful state of benefits in the UK overall.”

Although the @AudioRiot will be centred on a protest at Westminster on Tuesday September 28th, local branches – such as DPAC Sheffield – will also be taking part in a nationwide version on the Saturday before – September 25th.

DPAC want people attending the London protest to ‘bring everything you can that makes noise’ and those taking part in local actions to ‘mobilise in their areas to create an #AudioRiot of your own to resist the coming cuts and invite others to join the campaign’.

“Create your own orchestra with homemade instruments, create your own playlists and play them through phones/speakers, form a Samba band – whatever works for you!

DPAC would like you to send them details of your planned action, so they can promote it through their website, email network and social media channels.

You can find full details of the protest here.

Disability Sheffield is a forward-thinking, energetic organisation doing a lot of positive work in Sheffield. I have no doubt they will continue to do so for a long time to come.

When I moved to Sheffield nearly five years ago it was my "go to" organisation. I expect it to stay that way. All the staff and volunteers seem to pull out little gems of effort that disabled people like me couldn't do without. Professionally and personally - I love em :)

A fantastic presentation thought provoking and good questions from the floor around promoting this film/message to the general public not just professionals.
