The Derbyshire Direct Action Now Network (DDANN)

In 1989 the Derbyshire Direct Action Now Network (DDANN) was formed by local disabled people to protest against the pedestrianisation of Chesterfield.

A proposal which would have meant that many disabled people would be excluded from accessing the town centre because in-town designated parking for disabled people had not been included in the design.

These protests resulted in police arrests and court hearings, where disabled people refused to plead guilty, all reading out the same defense to the court.
