The Catalan (Spain) government has begun to withdraw the pensions of
those people with ME/CFS and MCS “who help people who are ill”.
The first one to lose his pension has been Mario Arias, president of
Aqua Tarragona, the association of people with ME/cfs and MCS in the
city of Tarragona.
Mario has been very ill for 20 years and had full disability since 2002.
Since then he had been helping other people through internet from his
bed who are sick with info and emotional support.
The goverment has taken away his pension alleging that if he can give
support to others, he can get a job!
How can you help?
We are asking people all over the world to send their photo by email
for the mural we are putting together for the press conference to
denounce this next Tuesday.
Please send your photo to firstname.lastname@example.org (aquatarragona @ gmail.com)
You might also want to include some words of support to Mario.
Today, it is Mario. Tomorrow it will be you and me.
