We have returned in a era where some disabled people are feeling the need to chain themselves to things is a form of unlawful protest. The last time disabled people did this was the early 90s when disabled people has no right not to be discriminated against and it was about moving away from being objects of pity and becoming citizens. Now people are protesting to remain objects of pity.
The issue is society has moved on the since 9/11 the world is less tolerant to act of violence, however non-violent they are seem. When we have social media and people have an independent voice to see how they feel, like how I am now, can ‘direct action’ really be accepted? It is indeed borderline terrorism and maybe it should be treated as such, especially if disabled people want equality and inclusion. and the crimes against them taken so seriously.
