Urgent Alert — In Less Than 48 Hours:
Activists Use Facebook to Create Instant Protest
of Heritage Foundation “Psychiatric Tyranny”
Fest in Washington, D.C., on Wed., 18 July
E. Fuller Torrey, Pusher of Forced Psychiatric
Drugging of Americans in their Homes, to Speak
by MindFreedom International
The Heritage Foundation web site claims it is for “limited government” and “individual freedom.”
But this Wednesday, 18 July 2012, this very same Heritage Foundation is spotlighting one of the main crusaders for the very worst of Big Government: psychiatric tyranny.
On Wednesday, July 18, 2012, the Heritage Foundation in Washington D.C., is hosting a talk by E. Fuller Torrey, M.D. (photo above) widely considered to be one of the top pushers for laws making it easier to force psychiatric drugs into Americans, even if they are living peacefully in their own homes out in the community.
With very short notice, Occupy Psychiatry, a new joint project by the Law Project for Psychiatric Rights (PsychRights) and MindFreedom International, will be at the presentation to counter Torrey’s falsehoods. With less than 48 hours to go before the event, activists are asking people to contact concerned people in the Washington, D.C. area.
People are gathering for a peaceful protest at 11:30 a.m. at 214 Massachusetts Avenue, N.E., Washington, D.C.

HERITAGE FOUNDATION MAKES BIG MISTAKE
The Heritage Foundation may find a lot of others on the right are not pleased. Right wing activists from Rush Limbaugh to Michael Savage have personally blasted the massive promotion of psychiatric drugging, especially in children.
Said David Oaks, Director of MindFreedom International, “There are right wingers and left wingers and libertarians who are true to their ideals, and who are outraged at the crime of extreme psychiatric drugging of the USA population, especially young people. Opposing psychiatric abuse unites a lot of red and blue voters. May the Heritage Foundation find out soon they made a mistake by promoting E. Fuller Torrey’s bizarre, tyrannical, anti-American values.”
ACTION – Please forward this news to others, especially in Washington, D.C. area.
