Hagai Aviel (Tel Aviv, Israel) and René Talbot (Berlin, Germany) started co-operating on projects fighting psychiatric coercion in the 1998 Foucault Tribunal in Berlin (www.foucault.de). This led to the 1999 Freedom From Fear Tour in 4 of the 6 German institutions where psychiatric inmates were murdered in gas showers during the Nazi regime, a tour that culminated in a counter congress to the World Psychiatric Association congress in Hamburg (www.irren-offensive.de). Later projects were the Russell Tribunal on Human Rights in Psychiatry (www.freedom-of-thought.de/index.html), the 2002 establishment of the International Association Against Psychiatric Assault in Basel, Switzerland and much more.
