(en) Poland, INICJATYWA PRACOWNICZA - WORKERS' INITIATIVE: A decent life is not a fad - protest of disabled people [machine translation]

Date Sun, 8 Jul 2018 09:45:46 +0300

On July 3, our environment supported people with disabilities and their parents in the fight for demands that appeared during the occupation of the Seym - including for a subsistence minimum for people who are unable to live independently, an additional PLN 500 for living or for the institution of an assistant. Demonstration on pl. Freedom in Poznan attracted several hundred people, there were also samba. Some of the participants arrived straight from the Black Protest on this day regarding the tightening of the right of access to abortion. ---- Speaking parents, people with disabilities and their supportive ones. They gave feedback from the control at the clinics and hospitals they had carried out in the last days, that is, after the introduction of the right regarding access to treatment and physiotherapy, which was a direct result of earlier protests. It turned out that many promises remain empty, and access to medical services is still difficult. Of the 21 demands made during the occupation - two incomplete projects were implemented.

Two speeches - representatives of Dobra and Ruchomosci cafes (related to Vengeance) - concerned problems faced by social economy entities employing people with judgments. A debate was announced on 13 July, in which we will also take part, regarding the lack of support from the local government.

A representative of the Employee Initiative emphasized that in recent years we have witnessed many protests in sectors related to caring work - protested social workers, female nurserymen in Poznan, and also many mothers involved in the protest of disabled people. The care sectors are underfunded, while for many years large corporations in special economic zones have been subsidized in Poland, and in the near future tax privileges for business will be extended to the whole of Poland. Many problems of people with disabilities face in the labor market - the lack of possibility to match work time to their needs, fictitious work contracts, the need to obtain full ability to work under pain of losing a job and others. Only by supporting yourself, organizing from the bottom up and noticing common interests,

It did not go unheeded when politicians spoke, both from PiS and PO. When the first part of the protesters spoke, she turned her back, others chanted "40 days of fighting", or "women's rights", and samba began to play, disrupting the speech. When the senator from the PO spoke, explaining that in the current political situation they are helpless, from the crowd they were loudly commented that for many years they were equally helpless in the activities for the benefit of the disabled.

The environment of disabled people and their families announce that they will continue their protests. On our part, we would like to invite this environment to co-create the Social Congress of Women, organized by union activists and condominiums, which will take place in autumn.
