Occupy the APA - October 6, NYC

I'm working on a multi-part series on problems in the arguments of Erich Fromm, which is itself a preliminary to another multi-part series expanding his revolutionary ideas about science and "the art of loving" to nonhuman beings, which all in turn is but part of a much larger project, so I'll just post some quick announcements and short pieces for a bit.

An Occupy the APA rally/march is planned for the 6th of October in New York. Here's the announcement with basic information (contact information at the link):


Saturday October 6th, 2012, 12:00 P.M., New York City

Rally & March from the United Nations


American Psychiatric Association Meeting!

Freedom from Forced Treatment and Abuse in the Mental Health System!

End Psychiatric Treatment That Denies Human Rights!

Every day, people young and old are forced into harmful treatment that they don't want and that they don't need. Join The Center for the Human Rights of Users and Survivors of Psychiatry (CHRUSP), MindFreedom Int’l, PsychRights, The Icarus Project, We The People and more to rally for human rights in mental health treatment, policy, and culture!

Listen to some of most powerful voices from the psychiatric survivors movement and get inspired to stand up for human rights in psychiatry!

What do we want? Human Rights!

When do we want Them? Now!
