One afternoon in late June, the members of JAG took over the streets of Stockholm. Together with an authentic samba orchestra, we offered a carnival procession, which exuded pride, joy and self-esteem.
About 200 people, members in JAG, personal assistants, relatives and supporters, participated.
The members in JAG want to show that we who have the greatest functional limitations and limited autonomy are active members of society that govern our lives. With personal assistance we can live life and enjoy the summer!
In Sweden the government once again is investigating how to save on personal assistance. The assistance users in Sweden are portrayed as victims of cheating and fraud while those with large and extensive disabilities at the same time lose all or part of their personal assistance.
