from the organizers: 

The Coalition Against Psychiatric Assault with the official endorsement of Occupy Toronto is proud to announce:

OCCUPY PSYCHIATRY

On May 6, 2012 at 1:00pm, the Coalition Against Psychiatric Assault is organizing Occupy Psychiatry: A nonviolent action during which survivors and activists will occupy the front grounds of the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health, Ontario’s shock shop located at 250 College St (near College and Spadina). In the spirit of the Occupy movement, we will be taking up space with tents and other Occupy symbols complete with speeches, testimonies, entertainment, and food in protest of psychiatric imperialism.

We are holding this action in solidarity with “Boycott Normal: Occupy American Psychiatric Association” (in Philadelphia) in an effort to have global resistance to psychiatry.

Please join us on May 6, 2012 to Occupy Psychiatry in the fight to end fraudulent diagnoses, forced drugging, forced electroshock, and psychiatric incarceration. For more details on the event, click the attachment below:

Dorothy Dundas

While institutionalized for three years as an adolescent in the 1960's, MindFreedom member Dorothy Washburn Dundas was labeled a "schizophrenic" and forced to undergo 40 combined insulin coma-electroshock "treatments." Dorothy says, "I experienced and witnessed many atrocities. I believe that luck, determination, and my own anger and one compassionate advocate were my best friends on the road to my ultimate survival and freedom." Through a number of op-ed pieces, she has voiced her opposition to abusive psychiatric practices. Her poster, "Behind Locked Doors," which she created from her hospital records, is used in training programs. Dorothy lives in the Boston area where she has raised her four wonderful children. She founded and is the sole driver in her "safe, friendly and reliable" car service called The Crystal Lake Express.
