Posted 29/3-11 at 17.19

On March 22nd, unions and organizations of Arab and Sudanese disabled people marched to the United Nations Headquarters in Khartoum to demand the protection of the human rights of disabled people. They also asked that March 22nd be declared a World Day for the protection of disabled people.

The Secretary of the Arab Organization for Disabled Persons, Ibrahim El-Khawad, said this in commemoration of Palestinian Islamic intellectual, Sheikh Ahmed Yassin, a founder of Hamas and a wheelchair user, who was assassinated, along with ten others, by Israeli forces on that day in 2004.
