here for the "Freedom from Fear" tour in 1999 to
visit areas where exterminations took place in hospitals located
in different parts of Germany. Click
here for the international "Foucault Tribunal"
which took place on May 2nd 1998 in Berlin. As a reference to this
event the R&R Day is on the 2nd of May.
2 is the international day of commemoration of the crimes of Nazi
psychiatry and their accomplices and the Day of Resistance Against
Coercive Psychiatry. In Berlin we therefore also remember the victims
of the medical mass murder. Here from 1939 onwards began the so-called
'Aktion T4' in the gas chambers of the psychiatric institutions and
later by poison syringes and forced starvation up to the year 1948,
leading to the death of approx. 300,000 individuals. We likewise remember
the victims of psychiatry before 1939 who were tormented, forcibly
sterilized and murdered and also those, who (still) today in the psychiatric
institutions and also outside of them are tormented, harmed, slandered
and robbed of their liberty because of a so-called diagnosis. Thus
forced psychiatric treatment will never be an assistance, but rather
always is a crime.
