Knot in the Throat

From Mad in Brasil: Psychologist Vanessa Furtado writes that our fight is a struggle against a form of society that medicates and imprisons the hungry woman, but denies her the right to access basic conditions for her and her children’s survival. As Basaglia said, “we must oppose this society that destroys people and kills those who have no means to defend themselves. In a sense, we live in a society that looks like an asylum and we are inside this asylum, interned fighting for freedom”. We are fighting for the right to conditions to live our human experiences with dignity, having respected our diversities that make us unique: “we fight for the right to be alive!” Read in Portuguese or a google translation into English.
