European Independent Living Day – May 5th

As part of the “Stop Disability Cuts” campaign, the European Network on Independent Living (ENIL) celebrates the first European Day for Independent Living, in order to raise awareness of the impact of the financial crisis on disabled people and to show that, despite all the cutbacks, they remain proud, strong and visible. A press conference will be hosted today by the European Foundation Centre, one of the Zero Project’s partners. In 2014, the Zero Project will focus its research on Independent Living and Political Rights.
