KINGSTON, ONTARIO -- (Marketwired) -- 05/10/14 -- The Raise the Rates Campaign is excited to announce Ellen Clifford from Disabled People Against Cuts (DPAC) UK will be speaking in Kitchener on Monday evening as part of a province-wide tour.

The British government's changes include a system called the Work Capability Assessment, which has been used to deny benefits to thousands of people. DPAC has mobilized disabled people in the United Kingdom to fight back and has formed alliances with community organizations and unions to resist the culture of austerity that is behind the changes. Atos, the company carrying out assessments of sick and disabled people for the government was forced to quit because of resistance from DPAC and their allies.
Ellen Clifford from DPAC's National Steering Committee will be in Kitchener on Tuesday, May 13. She is on a province-wide tour that includes Sudbury, Ottawa, Kingston and Toronto.
