Abstract

Today, 2 April 2014, there are many people around the world trying to raise awareness for autism, with this date each year marking World Autism Awareness Day. There are many differing ways of raising awareness of a cultural phenomenon; some do so in a way that is not so useful for autistic people. This is perhaps why today many autistic activists will be celebrating ‘acceptance’ of autistic people instead. What I would like to draw the World’s attention to today however, are the campaigns of #JusticeforLB and #107days. On 19 March 2013 Connor Sparrowhawk (aka LB) was admitted to Slade House, an NHS assessment and treatment unit. 107 days later he died, having had a seizure whilst left unsupervised in a bath.
