Hypocrisy in Greece over Special Olympics?


Kristina Chew over at autism.change.org recently raised an issue over Greece's role as host of the 2011 Special Olympics World Summer Games. She quotes blogger Emma, whose blog, The Iron Chicken, is about "Life in the weird lane, raising a child with disability in Greece and other things."

Emma writes:
"The irritation stems from the knowledge that Greek politicians are going to being doing their photo opportunities and making their postive statements about inclusion and acceptance and the progress that Greece has made etc, etc, etc, when in fact they are doing pretty much.....nothing towards inclusion and acceptance or anything else regarding disability."
