The UK is the first country to have been investigated by the UN for systematic failures in our treatment of disabled people. This has been largely ignored by the National Media
The UN published its report in the week of the US election, and the media has ignored it. The government plans to ignore it too, their only response has been to accuse the UN of being offensive!
As a result of being investigated by a United Nations committee for not fulfilling the terms of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of People with Disabilities, the government have been found guilty of grave & systematic violations of the rights of disabled people as a direct result of austerity policies introduced into welfare & social care.
The UN committee has made 11 recommendations. Lets fight as hard as we can to stop the Government from sweeping this under the carpet. So please, all, sign and share this petition as far and wide as you can.
