About Occupy the APA 5/5
On May 5, 2012, MindFreedom International is holding its Occupy the American Psychiatric Association protest at the APA’s annual convention in Philadelphia.
There are many reasons why people might join the Occupy the APA Protest May 5th in Philadelphia. One is the prospect of the DSM-V and labeling of our emotions as abnormal conditions, generally. Another is opposition to coercive psychiatry. Another is the harm caused by the drugs and psychiatry’s refusal to tell the truth about them. Another is for people in the Occupy Wall Street movement to understand how psychiatry in general, and the American Psychiatric Association in particular, is inventing diseases, etc., to sell ever more drugs, that on the whole are very harmful, with horrendous consequences for society and millions of individuals. There are no doubt more.
