‘Creating a Movement: the struggle for Inclusive Education in the UK 1990 – 2006’ DVD

The videos on this DVD are also about political activism from direct action to the slippery process of legislation. They are of interest to everyone involved in or who might think about social change. The direct action featured is one of the few published video records of the many actions organised and led by DAN, the Disability Action Network. The demo and subsequent sit-in is co-led by the young people’s group, Young and Powerful, featuring Lucy Mason.
In the government consultation video people with disabiliites speak-up about their experience of being segregated into special schools and is a remarkable document for that reason alone. But it also shows how government officers will tend to wriggle out of the truly progressive implications of democratically won legislative reforms.
Finally there is an interview with a key leader of the movement, Micheline Mason. Micheline is well-known in the field for her talks but this interview by Tara Flood should make her thinking more widely available and is of interest to anyone involved in organising for social change.
