"I am very angry about it!"

K-san: "I am very angry about it!"

"I didnft know there are homeless people like us in other countries. (He was looking at Geofffs drawings of homeless people from Rochdale.) My right hand doesnft move, and I cannot walk without a stick either. My income support was stopped recently, and the welfare officer said "Try to live by yourself - your physical difficulty is not so serious." Can you believe it? I am very, very angry about it!

Now, I have welfare accommodation and facilities, but no money for food, and I do not know when I will be thrown out from there. How is it in England? In Japan, disabled people are classified as to the extent of their physical difficulties, and our income support is getting cut down. But how can I find a job? How can I live without any support?"
