Brutality and Horror

Disability rights, neglected, taken away.

Protection of human rights for persons with disabilities (PWDs) is a world wide problem…social problem across borders. Moreover, the public awareness about these issues is hardly existent, also across borders.

One of my favorite activists and journalists, Ann Curry, together with MSNBC made this chilling video as they went undercover to evaluate mental institutions in Serbia.

    I saw this documentary, and it really hit me. I couldn’t believe it, and the sad truth is that the neighboring countries might not be any better. I really had no words to describe it (but you are right, it is horrific and chilling).
