Protesters in Albany, New York

WHAT: Protest against the use of ECT on children

WHEN: 14 July 2009

On Bastille Day, Tuesday, July 14, 2009, protesters spoke out on the East Lawn of the Capitol Building (at State and Eagle Streets) for most of a 24-hour period, from 9 AM - 2 PM and 5 PM - 9 AM. (Bastille Day has been a traditional day of protest by psychiatric survivors for decades, at the suggestion of MindFreedom member Myra Kovary, thus leading to the designation of July as Mad Pride month!)
