Protest of Electroshock: Mothers Day Weekend 2011

— filed under:

For several years, simultaneous protests, street theater and other events challenging electroshock human rights violations, have been held by activists in multiple cities on Mothers Day. That's because so many of those on the receiving end of abuse in electroshock are mothers and grandmothers, since shock targets older women.
