March against disability cuts in Oxford: TOMORROW

Lashings of Ginger BeerPosted by Lashings of Ginger Beer

My Life My Choice and Oxford Save our Services have organised a march in Oxford on Saturday July 23rd. They say:

"The banks caused the recession. It's the “invisible” people in our society that are paying the highest price, especially people with disabilities.

My Life My Choice and Oxford Save our Services invite you to join us on the streets of Oxford on Saturday July 23rd to show that we won't let the media and the politicians make real people and their needs invisible.

Come and be loud and proud and show them that we are together and that we want a fair society for all!

Assemble at 11 at Manzil Way, march at 12 to Bonn Square where there will be a rally. Speakers at the rally will be ordinary people talking about their experiences, not politicians and activists. If you'd like to tell your story, on the Oxford SOS blog or at the rally then please email

If you can help by delivering leaflets or putting up posters in your area, email back or text Jim on 07894 085505.
More details to follow, including a route map with accessibility info and details of the rally. Please get in touch with any questions. If you'd like a buddy to assist with any mobility or access needs then email or leave a post on the Facebook wall  saying what you need and we'll do our best to help. We're hoping to provide a BSL interpreter for the rally, if you know anyone who can volunteer to help with this please put them in touch :)

Please sign up to the Facebook group and let us know what you think."
