53 Disability Rights Activists Arrested in Washington DC by Obama White House

after they were told the US President would not hear their demands to stop housing the disabled in nursing homes against their will where they cannot experience life to its fullest.

Sound familiar?  Anytime the nursing home industry is threatened it seems someone gets arrested, from Barbara Stone and her heroic fight to protect her mother, to these 53.  People such as Glenda Martinez who recently won her fight to restore her POA rights and bring her husband home from such a nursing home after 1.5 years (complete with bed sores, a rash, deteriorated limbs and muscles for lying in bed all day without rehab, etc.)

150+ disabled rights activists storm the White House fence for their rights, and the US President has them arrested instead of looking at their demands.

The organization is ADAPT.
