People not punchlines

The brilliant Nicky Clark (@dontplaymepayme on Twitter) yesterday launched a new campaign, called People not Punchline.  The aim of the campaign is to

have disability hate speech recognised under law in line with current legislation and protection.

I wholeheartedly support the campaign, and wish Nicky all the very best.

The folks over at Guardian Society – who, I have to say, do a great job covering disability issues – published an excellent article by Nicky on their Joe Public blog, as well as in Society Daily. Both are worth a read.

On a related topic, the band Heavy Load has produced a nice take on the Ting Ting’s “That’s Not My Name”, which you can listen to below:
