Disabled Protesters Blockade The BBC

Disabled protesters from DPAC, Black Triangle, Mental  Health Resistance Network and others blockaded a BBC building today in protest at the corporation’s shameful parroting of DWP lies.

Ever since this Government weren’t elected ministers like Iain Duncan Smith and Lord Fraud have misused statistics and even lied outright to smear disabled benefit claimants as scroungers or frauds.  These lies have been repeated without criticism by the toadying BBC who have become little more than a spineless mouthpiece for DWP spin.

This has all taken place against a savage backdrop of cuts to benefits, housing and local services which are forcing thousands of disabled people into brutal poverty, homelessness and tragically even suicide.  This side of the story has rarely been shown on the BBC.

Today disabled people fought back, blockading the entrance to their building in Portland Place.  Watch the video above.
