Protest for PAS Monday 24th April. “42 Minutes Is Not Enough”

Alt Text: A two tone purple and yellow lightning bolt sit on each side of black text at the top of the poster. The text reads “42 Minutes is not enough” in all caps. Below are the words “Nothing about us without us” in all caps, with #42 minutes to the right of it. There is a purple circle with yellow figures in the middle, a wheelchair user and non wheelchair user high fiving. Below that are two white boxes with black text. One reads “24 April, 2023” in all caps and the one below it reads “4PM, From the garden of remembrance to gpo” in all caps

Join us this Monday 24th April, 4pm to 6pm from the Garden of Remembrance to the GPO, as we take to the streets in a disabled community-led procession.

The Disabled Community is rising up in protest to hasten legislation for the right to PAS (Personal Assistance Services) in Ireland and increase hours.

We are highlighting the important role of PAS to enable disabled people to live independently, and the failure of the State to provide adequate provision. 42 minutes a day was the average PAS time given to disabled people in 2017.

The march will symbolically retrace the route of the signatories to the Irish Republic, including the disabled Seán MacDiarmada and Joseph Plunkett, to the GPO, where the Irish Republic was declared 107 years ago. Here we will make our own declaration, envisioning an Ireland where disabled people have our rights realised.

We are also hosting a banner-making session in Mud Island Community Garden this Saturday April 22nd, from 5 to 7pm. To register or support please email us at:
