Photograph shortlisted for "Democracy in Action", a competition organised by the Welsh National Assembly and displayed in the Senedd (Senate). Disabled parking - one of many democratic decisions to follow that will grant the disabled people greater access to all those places able-bodied people take for granted. Where I come from (Finland) the areas for disabled parking aren't even half the size of the large areas you find in Britain. While this may not be typical of Wales, I am hoping that the Welsh assembly makes wise decision about accessibility for the disabled and supports the equality of everyone regardless of their condition.
