The European Disability Forum (EDF) has launched a Signature Campaign which aims to collect at least 1 000 000 citizens’ signatures to combat discrimination in all aspects of the lives of disabled citizens in Europe. Supporters are asked to sign on the campaign Website before 3 October 2007.
"The European Union must respond to the call of at least 1 million citizens. This is stated in the draft European Union Constitutional Treaty. The campaign "One million for Disability" runs from 23 January to 3 October 2007. On 4 October 2007, the signatures will be officially handed out to the European Commission and the European Parliament. At the same time, a gathering of disabled persons, their families, friends and allies will take place in Brussels, in the heart of the European Institutions area".
