London, 24/06/2015. Aftermath of the DPAC (Disabled People Against Cuts) and other organizations direct action in the Houses of Parliament protesting to save the Independent Living Fund (ILF) during the Prime Minister's Question Time. From DPAC's press release: <<Today (24th of June) severely disabled people who are set to lose their Independent Living Fund support in just seven days time along with protesters from Disabled People Against Cuts staged a protest inside the House of Commons Lobby, and attempted to break through into the commons chamber and almost succeeded in interrupting Prime Ministers Questions. The police response was at first confused, and then described as "rough" but none of the protestors was reported as being hurt and there were no arrests reported. After leaving the House of Commons, the protestors continued to block roads around Westminster […]>>. From the Department for Work and Pension (DWP) website: <<The Independent Living Fund (ILF) delivers financial support to disabled people so they can choose to live in their communities rather than in residential care. ILF is an executive non-departmental public body of the Department for Work and Pensions>>. The British Government's decision to cut ILF will prevent many disabled people from living independently and, accordingly, they will be forced into care homes and institutes.<br />
