Ray Alert #15: Ray Sandford in Online Video Against Forced Electroshock!

— filed under:

You can now watch a new five-minute online video of Minnesota resident Ray Sandford -- along with his mom and a volunteer -- speak out against his ongoing, forced, outpatient electroshock (also known as "electroconvulsive therapy" or ECT). A Minnesota social service agency charged with protecting Ray had their lawyer issue a letter trying to stop the video created by IndyMedia of Minnesota.

Agency Demands Tape, Tries to Censor Ray's Video


You can now watch a free five-minute web video of an electroshock survivor and his allies speak out against his ongoing forced electroshocks.


Ray Sandford lives in a group home out in a community just north of Minneapolis, Minnesota. Every three weeks he is woken up early, and under court order brought 15 miles north to Mercy Hospital for a forced electroshock under court order.

Ray has had more than 40 forced electroshocks so far.

Ray's next scheduled forced electroshock is Wednesday, 25 March 2009.

IndyMedia, MindFreedom and volunteers worked together to help Ray tell his story to you, on an online video.


You may watch the video on any of these three locations:


Indy Media web site -- which includes IndyMedia news release, and personal statement by mental health advocate Daryl Trones:

On YouTube -- where you can add public support comments:

On this MindFreedom web site:


http://www.mindfreedom.org/shield/ray/ray-video


Ray, his mom, and Daryl speak in their own words, and for themselves, uncensored.

But Lutheran Social Service of Minnesota, which is funded by taxpayers to protect Ray, has had their attorney George Borer issue a letter dated 4 March as a "final notice" trying to seize the original tape, and prevent "dissemination" without their approval!
