The New York Times reports on the “fledgling movement by former patients to hold the mental health system in Mexico accountable.” Members of Colectivo Chuhcan, an organization of psychiatric survivors that fights a legacy of neglect and abuse that is considered among the worst in the Americas, is touring psychiatric hospitals and pressuring the government to improve conditions.
It’s very inspiring for me me to read about the movement of our Mexican brothers and sisters for their human rights.
Too bad the Times doesn’t report sympathetically like that on our movement.
Maybe that’s because we don’t have a human rights movement to fight psychiatric abuse here.
Isn’t it time we have one?
“Maybe that’s because we don’t have a human rights movement to fight psychiatric abuse here.”
I’m upset today, I have been posting in the ‘anti psych forum’ for 2 years and now they put me on “mod preview” after I compared Abner Louima who was assaulted, brutalized and forcibly sodomized with the handle of a plunger by New York City police officers after being arrested in 1997 with a psychiatric assault with a needle.
They said I posted ‘sexual violence’.
They said psych forums is “family site” to justify there actions yet that site has section on ‘fetish disorders’ is full of all kinds of nasty stuff kids can read (and should not) including posts from pedophiles.
The whole fetish section on psych forums is just a porn chat room kids can read ! but they shut me up for comparing Abner Louima assault to a psychiatric assault ???
They shut me down for only one reason, I am very good at ‘anti psychiatry’, posting relevant links/writing. They would rather the forum be full of petty arguments, myths and sloppy topics that will never be found on a google search.
The ‘anti psych forum’ on psych forums is only there for one reason, they couldn’t handle all the posts from the rights activists, people complaining about psychiatric assaults and busting psychiatry’s lies who came before me writing over the site.
That I feel good about.
What is this forum you mention? I don’t know anything about it.
