Autistics Against Autism Speaks is a video about Autistics protesting for civil and human rights, and against Autism Speaks practices, misinformation and tragedy push.
It’s rough but was my attempt to get Autistic voices heard back in 2017 … I sent this video and information to every news outlet in any medium I could find.
Lilia Luciano of ABC10 in Sacramento, California responded and then covered the story and was published in April of 2017. (https://www.abc10.com/…/adults-with-autism-li…/103-433854658)
Now Autism Speaks wants to pretend their apart of the human and civil rights movement — while still ignoring and pretending the autistic community doesn’t exist and only supporting their self-created ‘autism community.’
This video shares voices of Autistics around the world protesting Autism Speaks being in our lives, our healthcare, our legislation and everywhere we ever turn to look whether doctor’s offices, politician offices, schools, churches and more.
This video and many of my others with Autistic civil rights focus have been removed from Facebook due to antivaxxer / bleachcult folks doxxing them.
Enjoy it while it lasts this round.
Info sent out with video in emails.
In 2005 Autism Speaks was founded to find a “cure” for Autism. The organization launched a massive wave of Fear Porn-styled advertising to raise an incredible amount of money in a very short amount of time.
#fact | Autism is a brain neurotype – not a disease. It can’t be cured.
#fact | The only “cure” for Autism is a genetic-marker test during pregnancy. This would result in the same “cure” society has for Down Syndrome: Abortion.
#fact | The only other “cure” for Autism would be complete human extinction.
#fact | The largest portion of Autism Speaks donations were funneled into research. Only 4% went to supporting existing Autistic children and families. Autism Speaks, until October 2016, main goal was find a cure. (this has changed to 1% since the video was created)
This video is an attempt to more clearly portray and explain through authentic Autistic Voices the true history of our people in the shadow of the Autism Speaks machine.
