Over the next month WE will be protesting for a total of 91 hours to protest the fact that Disabled women were as much as #91Percent more likely to die of COVID.
One of the Government’s first acts when the COVID crisis hit was to roll back councils’ duties to support Disabled and older people. Then the plan to support those shielding was created as an afterthought, in under 48 hours; blanket Do Not Attempt Resuscitation orders were issued to people in care homes without consultation; and many of us were initially left off the vaccine priority list despite being at far higher risks of death.
Now, it has been revealed that even after adjusting for socio-economic background, poor health and housing, Disabled women with higher support needs are still 91% more likely to die from COVID-19
We cannot let this injustice be ignored. We must raise awareness and hold politicians to account. Over the next month we will be protesting outside Parliament for a total of ninety one hours to show politicians that we cannot be ignored.
Show your support by joining our protest in Parliament Square at 5pm on Tuesday 20th July.
