Friends of People First Rally
Date: Wednesday, March 31, 2010
Time: 4:30 - 5:30 p.m.
Place: The Manitoba Legislature (Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada)
On Thursday, March 11, 2010 Canada ratified the U.N Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities. Section 19 of the Convention guaranttees persons with disabilities the right to live in the community. We're calling on the Government of Manitoba to close all institutions for people with an intellectual disability. In particular, we'd like see the Manitoba Developmental Centre - MDC closed down and the residents moved to the community. On March 31st please help us to Free Our People!
