Disability Rights at Stake in the EU Referendum

130John Evans OBE has fought tirelessly for over 30 years, for the rights of  Disabled People across the UK and Europe.

In this exclusive video interview with SPECTRUM, he explains why remaining in Europe is so important for Disabled People. He argues the EU has protected the rights of Disabled People and has pushed for more action to be taken on improving access. Not just physical access but also accessibility on the Internet which is increasingly important. John has already written extensively on this subject and we recommend you read our earlier blog post where John outlined the case for voting to remain in the EU.

 

 

As John points out, this is a decision that will not just affect us, we need to think about the young Disabled People who come after us. Do we want to risk the rights that we have fought so hard for over thirty years,to be chipped away at, or repealed all together?

John will be voting to Remain in the EU on Thursday. We hope YOU will too!
