Quite a few of us going to the Newcastle one
We are hoping to take part in the march too Rosemary,but in Birmingham. Have only Just heard about it, so do wonder how much publicity for it is out there? Have done as much publicising as I can.

Good luck on your protest Jeanette. Remember to take your camera Image
Hi just followed the link for info and read;
We know that not everyone will be able to attend an event, so information will be posted here soon suggesting other ways to get involved.
That's good because we'd like to be involved but these sorts of protests aren't autism friendly ...
