News ::
8/30 Cambridge Hunger Activist to Speak on Radio (english)
29 Aug 2003
Modified: 30 Aug 2003
EXPANDING AWARENESS on WZBC, 90.3 FM, Saturday August 30, 9:30 a.m., will feature an interview with a local psychiatric survivor and activist to discuss the solidarity striker freedom in mental health she began since mid-day August 19.
Challenging the coercive agenda and endorsement of biopsychiatry by the American Psychiatric Association, the National Alliance for the Mentally Ill and the Surgeon General, Support Coalition International began a hunger strike on August 16 to force recognition of their list of demands

On Day 11 the core strikers met with the American Psychiatric Assocation and yet the response of the APA remained unsatsifactory to them.

Four core strikers in Pasadena as well as solidarity strikers worldwide now continue with their plea.

On the show I will speak of the strike, its motivations and her own involvement in the story. If you would like to interview me please contact me.
