The European Network on Independent Living (ENIL) would like to invite you to a hearing in the European Parliament entitled 'Defend the Right of Independent Living - How the EU's Austerity Policy Is Undermining the Lives of People with Disabilities'. The hearing will take place on 9 February 2012 (15:00 - 18:30, Room A1G2), and will be hosted by the European United Left/Nordic Green Left Parliamentary Group.
ENIL and its partner organisations will present evidence about the impact austerity measures are having on people with disabilities in the European Union, and will set out actions that can be taken by the European Parliament and the European Commission to address this situation. These will include the ENIL Proposal for the European Parliament Resolution on the effect of cuts in public spending on services for persons with disabilities in the EU.
