Disability History: Access for Montreal, July 25, 2014

Because disability history is about the past, present and future, check out the photo posted above of people taking action. This photo captures the very real barriers that people with disabilities continue to face all over the world.

From Access for Montreal: “Montréal is one of the most inaccessible cities among Western countries. Only 7 métro stations out of 68 have elevators. On July 25 2014, disabled Montrealers and their allies protested at Place des arts métro station to demande change. Photos: Magdalena Olszanowski”
