Title: 1970s disability sit-in - disabled had upper-hand
Post by: Sunny Clouds on 25 Sep 2021 11:00PM
I've been reading an article in the Guardian about an American disability rights campaigner.  It described a sit-in he was involved in as part of a campaign.  The following made me laugh -

Quote
Then the government cut off the hot water and phone lines; the protesters got round the latter by communicating in sign language from the fourth-floor windows to the street.

I can just imagine the response of those who'd cut off the phone lines.

'Deafinitely' a case of disabled people having the 'upper hand', or is that the upstairs hand?

For some reason I read it as cutting off water and so was thinking of the poop and piddle going out of the window  :f_yikes: :f_whistle:
