A Tribute Post For Chris Hughes

November 23, 2018

I am very sad to read tonight that a Facebook friend and fellow Disability Rights campaigner, Chris Hughes, died this morning.

Chris worked in disability advocacy, protested with the Direct Action Network and was a member of Not Dead Yet UK, through which I came across him.

According to Liz Carr’s Facebook tribute, he contributed heavily to one of NDYUK’s biggest campaigns in 2015, in which 80 disabled people, including me, created posters which were taken to Parliament, explaining why we wanted assistance to live, not to die.

For me personally, that is an opinion I am passionate about and I will remember that campaign forever.

My thoughts are with members of NDYUK, members of DAN and everyone who knew Chris better than I did.

RIP Chris Hughes, thank you for your Facebook friendship and for all you did for Disability Rights.
