Grande-Bretagne : la révolte des carers

Pour pallier le manque de structure d’accueil des handicapés, la Grande-Bretagne a mis en place depuis trente ans un système unique en Europe : celui des carers - des proches de malades ou de handicapés qui deviennent auxiliaires de vie à domicile. Un système menacé dans un pays qui compte près de sept millions de carers, soit plus de 10% de la population du pays.

#Grande-Bretagne : la #révolte des #carers

Sean s’occupe de sa femme Barbara victime d’un accident de voiture, Kathy veille sur sa fille polyhandicapée. Mais depuis deux ans, le gouvernement conservateur de David Cameron a décidé de réduire drastiquement les allocations des personnes handicapées et des carers qui veillent sur eux.

Sean, Kathy, comme tous les carers, travaillent 7 jours sur 7 au chevet de leurs proches et doivent survivre avec quelques centaines d’euros par moi. Pire, désormais les services sociaux sont en mesure de forcer un parent proche à devenir carer... quitte à ce qu’il quitte son premier métier. Aujourd’hui, les carers ont peur de l’avenir, et surtout ils sont en colère.

Mazloom, une pièce théâtrale

Mazloom is a portrait of a young refugee, Asef, alone in London, whose life is being torn apart by the impending prospect of deportation to Afghanistan.

The script came about as a result of an 8 month project run by Kieran Sheehan Dance Theatre in collaboration with Merton and Wandsworth Asylum Welcome. Sara Masters (writer) and Kieran Sheehan (director/choreographer) worked with a group of six young Afghan asylum seekers to create a piece of performance. This explored their experiences both before and after coming to the UK and their responses to turning 18 and losing their protection - their right to remain - in the UK.

Fearful of their fragile positions in the UK and terrified of what life would be for them in Afghanistan, Mazloom is an intimate portrayal of an isolated young man on the brink. This was workshopped and performed at The Old Vic Tunnels and went on to be seen at a variety of venues, raising awareness of the dangers unaccompanied asylum-seeking children face, as they turn 18.

Mazloom - having been further developed by the Media Arts and Drama departments of Royal Holloway, University of London, and with new film footage and sound track by film-maker Sue Clayton (Hamedullah: the Road Home) - is now going on a national tour. Playing the part of Asef is actor Priyank Morjaria.

The tour has been made possible through the financial support of RHUL, National Coalition of Anti-Deportation Campaigns, Dover Detainee Visitor Group and Kent Refugee Action Network.

Mazloom is touring as part of Young People Seeking Safety Week 2013, the third annual week of celebration and action of the YPSS network.
