Wheelchair Guerilla

Posted by Marc van Gurp | 20-04-2011 20:10 | Category: Ableism



Great guerilla action in Curitiba Brazil. I don’t know much about this specific action done by Bruno Siqueira but it’s obvious what is happening here.
It is the world upside down from disabled people daily life experiences.

The most obvious excuse “I’m parking here only for one minute” is written on the note on the back of the wheelchair.

In Greece they said it in less subtile way a few years ago.
And also in Belgium in 2006.
Or place a sign with “go and break your fucking spine”.
