Disabled protesters 'bring London to a standstill'

UK Uncut has said that traffic was stopped in Marble Arch as disabled protesters took to the streets against the austerity cuts with the campaign group claimed that central London had been brought, "to a standstill."

Paddy Murphy of Disabled People Against Cuts (DPAC) said:

If cuts to benefits don’t kill you slowly by leaving you starving or freezing to death in winter, then massive cuts to care and support funding should finish off those the Government wrongly call “unsustainable.”
