Thousands in England protest against disability benefit cuts

Up to 5,000 disabled people marched on parliament today.

They were protesting against government attacks on the disability living allowance (DLA), the retesting of people claiming incapacity benefits, the removal of the mobility allowance for people in residential care, and cuts to local authority support services.

Can you imagine?
