Look, I’m not going to reblog every new post about the ADAPT protest in Albany, NY. If you are reading this you can follow events as easily as I can on the Community First Choice In New York blog. But I just had to post this YouTube video of the protesters, who are escalating their occupation of the New York State Nurses Association.
The man who says, “We want them to move the Assembly now. We’ve been dicking around too long!” is Bruce Darling, Executive Director of the Center for Disability Rights in Rochester, and someone I knew when I was an ILC director in New York State. This brings back memories, though none quite like this!
By the way, Bruce was probably speaking off the cuff, but “We’ve been dicking around too long!” could be the new official slogan of the disability rights movement.
Disability life, ideas, identity, culture, commentary, and politics.
