Nancy, Thank you very much for writing this article. It is so very poignant and pertinent on so many levels it’s difficult for me to respond. Like you, I believe in the need to address this holocaust of psychiatric mal-practice from a civil rights/legal perspective. Fighting it out in the courts is very very important and necessary. I wonder if it would also be good to add grass-roots organizing (thank you Ted Chabasinski), to our arsenal of ways to support each other and simultaneously move toward the creation of a just system that would preclude a fascist corporatocracy that uses people like commodities and guinea pigs, and dismisses their value and humanity in the way you describe. I’m wondering if it would make sense to start in that direction by going or sending delegates to the upcoming US Social Forum Conference this summer. It’s being held in Philadelphia June 25-28, and in San Jose June 24-28th. For more on what it’s about, see https://www.ussocialforum.net/node/572. In addition to all the wonderful types of work people are already doing and have done for the “cause”, it may be a good idea to also reach out and join with with other activist organizations seeking a more just and humane system. It may be a way to provide mutual support and broaden our resources and power in this struggle. Maybe offering to do a workshop there would be worthwhile, as well. Though many of us are still sick, hurt, trying to recover or preoccupied with helping others to do so, maybe some can contribute in this way toward changing this sick system. I’d love to hear your thoughts about this.
