People with disabilities and their carers protested in Warsaw. – We still have a very serious dysfunction of the Supporting Benefit Act, it kicks half of the people who are currently entitled to this benefit out of the system. This is what we have never accepted – said Katarzyna Kosecka, co-organizer of the protest.

On Tuesday afternoon, a protest of people with disabilities and their carers took place in front of the building of the Ministry of Family and Social Policy. They manifested under the slogan “It was supposed to be support, not denial!”.

TVN24 reporter talked to Katarzyna Kosecka, co-organizer of the protest. She said that the March talks, which the ministry described as a success, “was not an agreement with us, it wasn’t a success, it was the beginning of talks”. – The ministry announced it so, but we deny it – there was no success, there was no agreement. They were just conversations, she added.

– We always said during every conversation that all people with disabilities and their carers should be supported. This has always been our opinion, we stick to it, this is what this protest is about – stressed Kosecka.

“We had 15 demands. One fulfilled, and the rest are completely distorted”

– We first proposed a photo of the guardians banning work. This has been accepted, but we still have a very serious dysfunction of this act, it kicks half of the people who are currently entitled to a nursing benefit out of the system. This is what we have never accepted – said the co-organizer.

According to her, the law “needs to be amended”. “It doesn’t include all people with disabilities,” she pointed out.

The amendment, she explained, “accounted for the fact that carers can work”. – But this is one thing, and we had 15 demands as a protest. One is fulfilled, and the rest is completely distorted and carried out the other way. That’s not what we meant at all, she said.
