This is what Inclusion Europe’s President Jyrki Pinomaa said:

“We cannot accept this.

Self-advocacy organisations speak up for

people with intellectual disabilities and their rights.

If governments don’t give money to these organisations

people with intellectual disabilities don’t have a voice anymore.”

This is what Inclusion Europe’s Vice-president László Bercse said:

“Self-advocacy organisations

like the National Platform of Self Advocates

fight for inclusion of people with disabilities.

If these organisations stop working,

we have less inclusion for people with disabilities.”
