Independent Left stands in full solidarity with DPI and disabled activists as we march to mark Disability Pride month’s campaign for basic rights, destigmatisation of disability and to celebrate being disabled and the positivity of the community. Disabled people are so often ignored pushed aside and their issues and campaigns are often argured for by non disabled people; this why it is crucial to support groups like DPI and disabled people who are leading the charge for change. We encourage all who can to attend the DPI march on the 22nd of July at 2pm gathering at Trinty College Dubin, before heading on to Dáil Éireann. Please share DPI’s messages across social media and to come together to protest for change and also celebrate the positivity and joy of the disabled community.
