Call to participate in the T4 protest march 2017

On Tuesday, May 2nd just as for the last 22 years, we hold our Day of Remembrance and Resistance

We gather at 4 p.m. at the Tiergartenstr. 4 at the memorial for the systematic doctors' mass murder from 1939 to 1949. This year we make special reference to the
World Congress of Psychiatry, 8. - 12. October 2017 in Berlin

Psychiatry: Fake science. Real harm.

German psychiatry: murdering back then, still torturing now

Together with the Bundesverband Psychiatrie-Erfahrener, Landesverband Psychiatrie-Erfahrener Nordrhein-Westfalen, Landesarbeitsgemeinschaft Psychiatrie-Erfahrener Niedersachsen, Landesverband Psychiatrie-Erfahrener Bremen, Landesverband Psychiatrie-Erfahrener Berlin-Brandenburg, Landesverband Psychiatrie-Erfahrener Hessen, Enthinderungsselbsthilfe von Autisten für Autisten, Auties, Weglaufhaus Initative Ruhrgebiet, Werner-Fuß-Zentrum, Irren-Offensive und der International Association Against Psychiatric Assault, we call to protest against this World Congress:

The choice of Berlin as a location for the 17th World Congress of Psychiatry is a provocation. Since 1939 the systematic mass murder in psychiatric institutions and asylums (the "Aktion T4") was planned and organized in Berlin. That was the blueprint for the subsequent murders in the gas chambers of extermination camps in occupied Poland starting in 1941.

The doctors used the Nazi regime to implement their plans for the elimination of
those who they declared to be untreatable. In professional circles these plans were discussed a long time in advance. The medical diagnosis led to a death sentence. The killings survived the end of the Nazi regime and continued until 1949. Thereafter lobotomy (brain mutilation) and electric shocks experienced their bloom, regularly taking place against the will of the victims. Today, coercion and violence is an integral part of psychiatric procedure. Forced incarceration, fixation, isolation, forced medications and forced electric shocks still exist until today. These facts have also been criticized in the assesment of the German State Report in Geneva.

A World Congress in Germany, and especially in Berlin, demonstrates solidarity with German psychiatry in order to whitewash its crimes.

We therefore call to protest against the WPA 2017 Congress in Berlin.

The route of the march is as follows: Tiergartenstr., Lennestr., dann über die Ebertstr. zum Brandenburger Tor, über den Pariser Platz, Unter den Linden, Wilhelmstr., Luisenstr., und bis zur Reinhardtstr. 27B, the Berlin branch of the DGPPN, where we demonstrate.

This call for protest is by the Bundesarbeitsgemeinschaft Psychiatrie-Erfahrener e.V. www.die-bpe.de and the Werner-Fuß-Zentrum www.zwangspsychiatrie.de both in the Haus der Demokratie und Menschenrechte, Greifswalder Str.4, 10405 Berlin

Königslutter: Remembrance only if forgetting is guaranteed! The coercive psychiatry of the Arbeiterwohlfahrt tried to use it's own right to prevent the commemoration of the psychiatrically murdered and the protest march on May 2nd, here the report on it. Here the link to the revised Call for the R&R Day in Königslutter and the documentation.
