    ABSTRACT

    This exhibition is a collation of images, videos and photographs used in social media for the protest movements in the UK, with a focus on disabled people, during this era of austerity. It shows the importance of citizen journalism when mainstream journalism is said to have ignored the voices of disabled people engaging in protests. This is a look back into the protests held in the last five years of Conservative Lib Dem Coalition government from 2010.
