Saturday December 3rd at 1 pm. Shop St. Galway, outside Brown Thomas, beside the Oscar Wilde statue.

Announcing a Speak-out to END EXCLUSION and to demonstrate the lack of access in the city streets for people with disability.

  International Day of Persons with Disability  

 Saturday December 3rd at 1 pm.

 Shop St. Galway, outside Brown Thomas, beside the Oscar Wilde statue.

 

There will be a Public Awareness Speakout,  TO END EXCLUSION, highlighting and demonstrating the obstacles that people with disabilities, particularly the visually impaired and the wheelchair users, have to encounter every day in Galway – pavement kerbs, potholes, cobble-stones, access to public toilets, access to buses , access to legal parking spaces and many more.  

December 3rd is the International Day of Persons with Disability, a global call for practical action to make a better world for all; where speakers in many different countries will tell the stories of their good and bad experiences and their struggles to end exclusion and their demands for effective change. Wheelchair users, others with disability, relatives and carers will make their voices heard, an historic occasion for the spoken word and effective action.  

People with disabilities make up an estimated 15 % of the world’s population. Almost one fifth of the global total of persons living with disabilities encounter significant difficulties, while a quarter of the world’s population is directly affected by disability, as carers or family members. There are thousands affected in Galway alone. 

Come along and tell your story to END EXCLUSION.
