Psychiatry: a deceiving

Psychiatry is a belief that, though false, has been surrendered to and accepted by society, in general, as a truth.

This is no accident, psychiatrists in 1840, were accused of being false medicine, and attempting to 'delude' or cause 'a deceiving'. Causing deception was exactly what psychiatrists were doing, but not wanting to have themselves exposed as charlatans, they decided to use the term 'delusions of grandeur' as a psychiatric label, and accuse other people of not being who they actually are, when they attempted to expose crimes or truths that psychiatrists and their buddy criminal network were up to.
A deception, that's what psychiatry's main propaganda tool is (the meaning of perpetrating delusion):
  1. Psychiatry is an impression that, though false, is entertained provisionally on the recommendation of the medico theories.
  2. Psychiatry makes no sense nor has any imagination in its ideas, but enforces full societal acceptance to influence political action.
  3. Psychiatrists have a false belief of their own importance, when they’re the biggest scum-buckets on earth, preying on the vulnerable and violently exploiting them.
  4. Interesting that psychiatrists think that megalomania, is not a delusion because psychiatrists are all obsessed with power & money.
  5. Psychiatrists inflict torture on people and call it medicine, convince Government Legislators to enforce this, despite superior evidence to the contrary that their torturous ‘treatments’ are harmful and not at all helpful and in no way have any scientific basis.
  6. You could say that psychiatry is a cult, or you could say it is a pathology, though it is not distinct from a belief based on false or incomplete information, confabulation, dogma, illusion, or other effects of perception. The idea that psychiatry is a 'disease' within our society has long been a way of explaining the ugly thing that it is, even Freud once admitted psychiatry was a plague, though of course psychiatrists disease label the population, to cover up what the psychiatrists are accused of, without any kind of test to prove their theories on dividing up human traits into 'diseases'.
  7. Psychiatrists hold false beliefs and harm the population with their dangerous poisons and other abusive ‘treatments’. These views that psychiatrists hold with certainty, they are not changeable, to the psychiatrists, by compelling counterargument or proof to the contrary, even though psychiatrists ideas are implausible, bizarre and scandalously untrue and result in devastatingly violent actions being inflicted on people in their 'care'.
  8. Psychiatry indoctrinates a false belief into the population, via propaganda scams so extreme that the beliefs cannot be, or never can be proven true, but are enforced onto the population through threats of torture and dehumanisation, shame, financial and social disenfranchisement if people do not agree.
  9. Mental Health Acts are an exploit in misleading the population into believing victim-blaming propaganda has government approved validity. Look at what governs the perpetrators and know what the Mental Health campaigners are doing to cause the public to be deceived.
  10. The truth is, psychiatrists are deceiving the population into sending their loved-ones for violent, cruel, invasive forced and coerced human experimentation that until psychiatry is abolished and the Mental Health Acts repealed, the victims of psychiatrists will have difficulty escaping from the psychiatrists regime of cruelty.
Victoria, Australia is rather open about its human exploitation regime online. The population would be outraged, if they bothered to read this, instead the population are so used to 209 years of Mental Health/ Mental Hygiene/ Eugenics Campaigners, that they vilify the victims and worship the whitecoat perpetrators awarding those evil psychiatrists Medals of Australia, as if they've done something the population wanted! https://www2.health.vic.gov.au/about/clinical-trials-and-research/human-research-ethics-committee

Human Rights Activists vs Medical Research Campaigners

Those that call themselves 'Mental Health Campaigners' or even 'Mental Health Activists' are talking around the actual issue, the exploitation, and turning it into theories on victims to perpetrate blame and shame and further abuse in the guise of 'medicine'. Human Rights are what is needed, not what 'Mental Health' campaigns for , that is just more and more widespread Forced Human Experimentation, in the guise of medicine. Human Rights is about Equality before the Law, no more Forced Psychiatry, no more discrimination on the basis of perceived disability, supported decision making not substituted decision making.

Psychiatrists cause distress and interfere with functioning when they exploit people for human research in the guise of ‘medicine’ that SHOULD be considered socially unacceptable!

Society has developed victim-blaming as a sort of 'coping mechanism', sending people to psychiatrists to ‘fix’ for any accusation they do not wish to face-up-to.

Whenever someone has a question that is difficult to answer, or anxiety about something, or is wondering why something bad is happening the easiest 'solution' is created by bringing in a psychiatrist, as if they are some omnipotent being, when they're actually just a cruel manipulative exploiter of human lives.

Psychiatrists do not enable someone to function according to societal standards, they disable people and use them for experimentation.

Psychiatrists  decrease quality of life, break a person down, and disconnect them from their community.

When those running and directing society, are doing things that are really wrong, they should not be allowed to criticise shut up and shut down those who speak out against them and exploit them for horrific science experiments. But that's exactly what is happening in the guise of medicine.
Stop psychiatrists from their 209 years of playing a very deceiving game, that results in the arbitrary detention and 24/7 indefinite torture of so many, stop this murderous exploitation. Repeal the Mental Health Acts, that vilify the victims that psychiatrists exploit for Research Without Consent. Recognise the laws that the population should be having a conversation about: HUMAN RESEARCH codes, the unethical 'ethics' in legislations, force and coercion that is allowed, torture, murder, and 'in good faith' rule that allows psychiatrists to do what they want - that shouldn't be allowed.
Mental Health Campaigning (aka Medical Research Campaigning) that's just whitecoat advertise, they want to go and do more Forced & Coerced Human Experimentation on yet another sector of the population, nothing new, but what a ridiculous piece of propaganda for whitecoat profits. How deluded the population has become through their fear of not ahering to what psychiatrists want. Look at where our government allows Forced Human Experimentation on this massive, gross scale: https://www2.health.vic.gov.au/about/clinical-trials-and-research/human-research-ethics-committee

World-wide protests May 13th 2017

World-wide protests
Forced & coerced 
under General Anaesthetic
MAY 13th 2017.

There is no excuse for this abuse of human lives.

There is no excuse for Forced Human Experimentation, especially when it is cruel, inhuman, causing massive brain-damage to the person it is inflicted on.

Did you know that last year 640 people, in Victoria, Australia, were forced to undergo electrocution under general anaesthetic? (usually over a dozen times in a year, no less, but often more. Garth Daniels was had this forced on him 115 times in a year.)

General Anaesthetic is dangerous enough, without adding electrocution to the mix. What is society doing allowing medicos to call this 'therapy'?

How can anyone be so apathetic to be bystanders to this, when populations protest about so many things in large numbers? But psychiatrists torturing citizens, citizens that get bad-mouthed and victim-blamed by psychiatrists, and this is perpetuated by the prejudices of mainstream-media? suddenly everyone is afraid of standing strong with the people most violated, in the largest numbers in this country.

Every day you see campaigns in Australia to stop torture, placing trade sanctions on countries that allow torture, yet Australia has systematically tortured its own population for 209 years and profited by it.

Let's look at the definition of Torture in Australia's Criminal Code.

1  At the end of Chapter 8 of the Criminal Code


             (1)  In this Division:

Convention means the Convention Against Torture and Other Cruel, Inhuman or Degrading Treatment or Punishment adopted by the General Assembly of the United Nations at New York on 10 December 1984.

Note:          The text of the Convention is set out in Australian Treaty Series 1989 No. 21 ([1989] ATS 21). In 2010, the text of a Convention in the Australian Treaty Series was accessible through the Australian Treaties Library on the AustLII website (www.austlii.edu.au).

             (2)  An expression that is used both in this Division and in the Convention (whether or not a particular meaning is given to it by the Convention) has, in this Division, the same meaning as it has in the Convention.

             (1)  A person (the perpetrator) commits an offence if the perpetrator:

                     (a)  engages in conduct that inflicts severe physical or mental pain or suffering on a person (the victim); and

                     (b)  the conduct is engaged in:
                              (i)  for the purpose of obtaining from the victim or from a third person information or a confession; or
                             (ii)  for the purpose of punishing the victim for an act which the victim or a third person has committed or is suspected of having committed; or
                            (iii)  for the purpose of intimidating or coercing the victim or a third person; or
                            (iv)  for a purpose related to a purpose mentioned in subparagraph (i), (ii) or (iii); and
                     (c)  the perpetrator engages in the conduct:
                              (i)  in the capacity of a public official; or
                             (ii)  acting in an official capacity; or
                            (iii)  acting at the instigation, or with the consent or acquiescence, of a public official or other person acting in an official capacity.
Penalty:  Imprisonment for 20 years.
             (2)  A person (the perpetrator) commits an offence if the perpetrator:
                     (a)  engages in conduct that inflicts severe physical or mental pain or suffering on a person; and
                     (b)  the conduct is engaged in for any reason based on discrimination of any kind; and
                     (c)  the perpetrator engages in the conduct:
                              (i)  in the capacity of a public official; or
                             (ii)  acting in an official capacity; or
                            (iii)  acting at the instigation, or with the consent or acquiescence, of a public official or other person acting in an official capacity.
Penalty:  Imprisonment for 20 years.
             (3)  Absolute liability applies to paragraphs (1)(c) and (2)(c).
Note:          For absolute liability, see section 6.2.
             (4)  Subsections (1) and (2) do not apply to conduct arising only from, inherent in or incidental to lawful sanctions that are not inconsistent with the Articles of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (a copy of the English text of which is set out in Schedule 2 to the Australian Human Rights Commission Act 1986).
             (5)  Section 15.4 (extended geographical jurisdiction—category D) applies to an offence against subsection (1) or (2).

If you cannot stop torture in your own country,
where can you stop it?

Victims of Forced Electrocution Under General Anesthetic (Let's call that FEUGA, rather than the erroneous ECT, that tries to imply this is 'therapy'. It is NOT therapy, it is Torture. If people widely understood that ECT really stands for Electro-Convulsive Torture, then the acronym could stand. But let's use FEUGA to spell out what it actually is, what is actually done to the person.)

Note, the high-lighted parts of Australia's definition of Torture:
Yes, brain-damage is a very severe suffering, the pain caused by this to the victim of FEUGA is immense, and it is done (I know from my experience & the experiences of other psychsurvivors) to gain compliance, and a confession from the person that they are 'mentally-ill' and to force compliance with treatments, and force agreement that the psychiatrist is helpful.

'You must comply, you must be agreeable to the treatment regime, you must have insight into your mental illness,' is what was said to me, and many, many other people. To 'play the game' you have to agree that the torture of you is care, agree that you want to be tortured... it's horrible. You have to agree that you're 'sick' and tiny micro-expressions are condemned, as you 'mood' is monitored, as if having emotions is a crime.

Tortured, vilified, and disabled... friendly people find people that can better support their needs, their advancement in society, their status. They get bored with how shut-down you are, how afraid you are to exist. Then you're labelled with that horrible stuff that gets attached to murderers that get reported on the mainstream-media - 'loner, suspected Mental Health issues.'

Note that this Torture psychiatrists inflict, is also most likely done to gain INFORMATION (proof of this in research articles sold that contain the declarations: Research Without Consent/ EFIC Research/ Emergency Research. We're talking biological information from the victim, to be profited by in research, research that is done without the approval of the victim, and/ or their friends and family. Research that doesn't benefit humanity, but fattens the wallets of those who profit from using people in this diabolical way.

I know from my experience this Torture that psychiatry inflicts, is also intimidation and coercion. If you don't agree to what the psychiatrist wants, they threaten arbitrary detention, detain you, say they will put you on the depot, put you on the depot, they give a larger dose of chemicals, keep you in hospital longer, threaten electrocution, electrocute you, threaten to tie you up, tie you up in a 4-point, the psychiatrists also become more and more verbally abusive, the more you attempt to free yourself from them.

And what breaks people most to agree to a certain torture that psychiatry is dishing out? the dehumanisation - the constant bombardment from the treating medicos, to the effect that the victim's life is treated merely a specimen in a petri-dish. People under the psychiatric regime are treated, as just a bunch of symptoms, a case, to study. And the fact that the population is oblivious, fighting for the rights of convicted drug-dealers, while victims of psychiatry are being tortured to death and members of society (to a large extent) just believe the propaganda and call that 'health care.' It is just horrible. Silencing. You get more empathy if you're a convicted drug dealer, in Australia, than you do if you're being tortured to death by the psychiatric regime.

I know (from my experience & the experiences of other psychsurvivors) that psychiatry forces worse and worse torture on people, until the victim agrees to be compliant, until they say, 'Yes, I agree that I need this treatment. I agree that I'm mentally ill.'

I've also found, when I was a victim of psychiatry's regime of cruelty, if I gave an anecdote as to why I used to be 'ill' but am no longer, when I said something that I knew to be their medical paradigm and they wanted to hear, like, 'It was horrible I was hearing voices now I'm not thanks to your treatment' they let me out of hospital sooner. This is what I'm talking about. If that's not extracting a 'confession', then, you're thinking too narrowly. Psychiatrists demand that you speak in their whitecoat paradigm, and carry through with their threats, because they are backed up by Public Officials, who allow for the legislation of MHAs.

Who needs to repeal the Mental Health Acts? Who is responsible if we don't? Public Officials. Yes, the population is as well, but the population didn't sign and ratify the UN CRPD and agree to Equality Before Law for persons diagnosed with perceived/ actual disabilities. Public Officials also signed the Convention Against Torture, and will ratify it at the end of the year. For Australia to make agreements and fail to stop their most horrendous torture regime, that is Psychiatry, is very dishonest.

This torture of the psychiatric regime is entirely discriminatory against persons diagnosed with perceived or actual disabilities, and it is so degrading. Not only are the labels forced on the person, the dismissing of the person's point of view, the denying that these forced treatments cause massive damage, and the forcing of a person to agree to treatments, and visit the abusive psychiatrists they want nothing to do with, then the degrading forced injections that a person will eventually pull their own pants down to receive, so they are not forcefully held down and injected in the butt, or have electrocution forced on them, or be held in detention, or 4-point ties.

Note how Psychiatrist Paul Katz was electrocuting victim Garth Daniels (115 times in a year) likely because Garth & his family were stopping his attempts to force Clozapine on Garth. And it looks even more sinister when it is noted that Paul Katz received a grant from Pfizer, the manufacturers of Clozapine, to do Human Research. Exception to Informed Consent Research, or Research Without Consent it seems forms the regular fat in the wallets of these whitecoat criminals.
It didn't matter that to the whitecoat researchers that this was all Forced on the person, who actively, along with his family said no and meant it enough to get United Nations involvement to stop the abuse, enough to go public on the 7:30 report (ABC), where Paul Katz advertised his wish to force Clozapine on Garth.

Garth Daniels and his family escaped to Queensland, and there, because of his trauma at being a victim of Forced Human Experimentation, that was, and still is invalidated by the general public, and those with a vested interest in keeping the lucrative slave-trade in FHE going, Garth naturally had difficulty being able to express his OUTRAGE at what had happened to him for a huge portion of his life, and was taken into the psychiatric wards again, due to his attempts to be heard. This time they forced Clozapine, which has now caused a devastating heart condition (this is verified by the cardiologist and the Clozapine has been stopped, when it should never have been started.)

Garth Daniels was taken in his prime, like millions of other Australians, and subjected to the disgusting FHE of the psychiatric regime. The difference between Garth and other people, is that his family had survived South African apartheid, and could see-through Australia's 209 year-long thick propaganda routines, that dehumanised Garth in the public eye, so to more easily use him in FHE.

Electrocution under General Anaesthetic must stop. All forced psychiatry must stop, it is cruel, inhuman, degrading... and contradicts not only Australian laws of Torture & Servitude (under our Criminal Code), but for the States to keep up discriminatory Mental Health Acts that allow people to be tortured under the guise of medicine, and enslaved into Human Experimentation, is a Frustration of the International Conventions Australia has signed.

Join in telling our MPs, particularly our Prime Minister, our Health Minister, our Attorney General, our Human Rights Commissioners - to actively urge all States and Territories to repeal Mental Health Acts. (if you live in another country, let's make the action world-wide.)

Equality before law, is what we're asking for. There should be no laws in a democracy that discriminate on the basis of actual or perceived/ diagnosed disability, especially in this diabolical manner that Australia, and other so-called 'democracies' do.

There is no excuse for this abuse of human lives. No matter how many plainsfolk are brainwashed/ indoctrinated into vouching for their oppressors, in offensive propaganda spews that get them petted by whitecoats, for parroting the psychiatry's spiel. (That is what some people tortured and enslaved will do, in attempt to survive. And most people have to do at some point, even if not brain-washed, we know we 'play the game' to escape and humiliate ourselves by pretending to be compliant, but often there is no other choice.)

Let's give people a choice to protest against the abuse, that has happened to them, is happening to them, is threatening to be done to them. Let's make the psychiatric regime end in 2017.

There is no excuse for this disgusting abuse of human lives. No one deserves to be subjected to FORCED HUMAN EXPERIMENTATION. We need to end this.

Stopping Oppression Globally

I am obsessed with getting reachers.org off the ground and happening big time, any twinge of want for a macchiato, is directly linked to wanting to drive reachers into a successful fundraiser to change things globally for women & girls… and most especially stop Forced Human Experimentation.

I am not shy about promoting what I deem to be as one way forward to getting something done, I don’t think you should be either.

The idea that I’m not ‘acknowledging’ that people have human crisis, is ridiculous, when people get lumped into psychiatry’s Forced Human Experimentation for all sorts of reasons… when there’s no reason for them to be ever harmed in that way.

Female Genital Mutilation, can result in a person then being ALSO being subjected to psychiatric Forced Human Experimentation.

A person who is Homeless, often gets placed in the psychiatric system and subjected to FHE.

A woman or child subjected to male-violence/ family violence, often ends up being then subjected to forced psychiatric drugs, electrocution (referred to by psychiatrists as ECT) & arbitrary detention.

1st Nations People who have transgenerationally been oppressed and whose families and people have been subjected to genocide, are more likely than the rest of the population to then also be subjected to FHE, not only via psychiatry, but often via other medicos.

Acknowledging that Medicine is an Industry, rather than just a charitable organisation, is the first step towards acknowledging that Forced Human Experimentation has always occurred under the guise of ‘medicine’. And reading up on the loop-holes in the law that allow this enables us to understand that the term ‘emergency’ is used for psychiatry in an on-going basis, to allow Forced Human Experimentation to be indefinitely forced on quarter of the population, and perhaps more than quarter of the population, if this systematic abuse of human lives is allowed to continue.

So, this is my hope behind this grassroots organisation. Please sign up and make a page on reachers.org, spread the word, to other people, make this happen. It’s been over 3 years in the making. Board Members are all lived-experience/ Experient, like myself, of various forms of oppression. I don’t want to live in a world where women and girls are horribly oppressed and medicos are allowed to forcefully experiment on people.

More info about the site, including required Government approvals (ACNC) as well as benevolent gift status here: http://reachers.org/info/about.html

Just a reminder that this fundraiser is not connected to any government, nor a church-based organisation… reachers Philanthropy is an organisation set up to be run by PEOPLE POWER. 99.9% going directly to the organisations that are driven to make changes happen. And a (government approved) ‘benevolent gift’ going to one of those lucky $4 donators.

Make it happen!

When governments are oppressive and protests don't work, you need something that will drive funds to make huge changes globally for women. http://reachers.org/info/about.html

reaching potential with www.reachers.org for the self-empowerment of women & girls

Activism, petitions, commissions...

Feb 28, 2017 — Petition update
I sent this petition to the new Commissioner Edward Santow, at the Australian Human Rights Commission.
He has your comments & signatures, but has not yet responded to our petition. So, let's REALLY let him know.

AHRC needs to hear from victims of psychiatry & those advocating on behalf of people who cannot gain access to internet to make a complaint, or are so shut-down by the torturous drugs & of psychiatric violence they cannot think what to say.https://www.humanrights.gov.au/complaint-information

I filled the form in as an individual complaint, and said that needs to be recognised as one person among millions of Australians abused systematically by govt-psychiatry for Human Research purposes.
I ticked this:
*My human rights have been breached by a Commonwealth government agency. 

I pinned the culprits as RANZP & Alfred Burnet Viral Load Laboratory (Alfred Health), though, I could've looked at other organisations that are involved. This would not be the same for everyone, but RANZP is the governing body for psychiatrists in Australia.

I must also remind anyone who wants to make themselves heard about the widespread Forced Human Experimentation in the psychiatric regime, that asking for Research Without Consent/ Exception From Informed Consent research/ Emergency Research... to be recognised as an unethical, must fill in the online form before 11:59pm 28/02/17 https://consultations.nhmrc.gov.au/submission-guidelines

Know also, that Psychiatrist Andrea Walker at Prince Charles Hospital Brisbane Queensland Reported to Federal and State Health Ministers et al for Potential Death-Risks

Australia has signed & agreed to ratification of the Convention Against Torture

Text for question to Q&A ABC program panel on video:
'George Brandis, congratulations on finally ratifying the CAT. How long will it take to come into effect? Australia signed and ratified the UN CRPD in 2008, which strictly forbids forced medical treatments, and Research Without Consent, yet millions of Australians are subjected to forced psychiatry every year. People who say no and mean it enough to take action by going to a tribunal hearing, often without legal representation, because innocent people aren’t entitled to a lawyer. 9 years is a long time to take before enacting section 51, especially when people are being tortured in the guise of medicine, under EFIC research. How much longer? Are you frustrating the convention?'

Not exactly ratified yet... but a promise

Australia hasn't yet ratified UN OPCAT, but has declared that ratification will occur at the end of 2017.

The Federal Government has announced it will ratify an international treaty to improve the oversight of Australia's prisons and detention centres. Attorney-General George Brandis said the Optional Protocol to the Convention against Torture and Other Cruel, Inhuman or Degrading Treatment or Punishment (OPCAT) would be ratified by the end of this year.

What does that mean for people on a Compulsory Treatment Order, being threatened with arbitrary detention if they don't turn up to appointments, told pull their pants down to be injected or have someone else do that, and told to comply with blood tests to verify they are taking the poisons the psychiatrists require in order to do invasive Human Research Without Consent?

Do quarter of Australia's civilian population subjected to Forced and Coerced (under duress) invasive cruel inhuman psychiatric treatments, that qualify as 24/7 indefinite torture & arbitrary detention, count as being allowed FREEDOM FROM TORTURE? They haven't for 209 years that the state violence inflicted under the psychiatric regime has been in place. Innocent people in this country don't have the right to legal representation, and if they're lucky enough to get legal representation, Medicos are considered beyond reproach; even though psychiatrists are known to harm children, even paedophile children, certainly they forcefully drug them, electrocute them, tie them up...  as well as harm the elderly, harm people in their prime. No one deserves this. It doesn't matter what kind of victim-blaming, or dehumanising excuse that is come up with through whitecoat propaganda, no one deserves to be tortured like this.

There has to be more awareness of psychiatry's abuse of human lives. It is wide-scale systematic state violence that causes a slow poisoning to death in the person inflicted by psychiatry's cocktails of forced drugs.

What would you rather? Be chained, or poisoned, or electrocuted? Know that psychiatry uses mechanical holds, in 4-point, not chains but Velcro, that said it's the same effect. Garth Daniel was held in this position for over 69 days in Victoria by psychiatrists. He was also being poisoned and electrocuted and his suffering belittled. Why? Because he said no, and meant it, and had parents who fought for him way better than most can. His parents understood South African Aparthied Regime, and survived it. Which makes this all worse, because you'd think if you at least had people petitioning to stop State Violence being inflicted on you, the psychiatrists would back off or start to be reasonable. But, psychiatrists are not reasonable, if you think they are, you obviously really don't read or listen to anything the people who are abused by psychiatry say, or their allies, or experts who cannot be bought or easily threatened into silence by the scam industry that is psychiatry.

Human Rights Commissioner Ed Santow said it was a good day for human rights in Australia. "When a person is detained in prison, a mental health facility, anywhere, they remain human," he said.


Yes, that's what people subjected to forced psychiatry say most, they just want to be treated like human-beings, not tortured, not belittled, not forcefully used in Emergency Research. But that's not what is happening.

If we cannot stop torture

in our own country,

where can we stop it?

Australia you need to be outraged!

Australian government policy on Conventions (brief)

Australia does not generally agree to be bound by a human rights treaty unless it is satisfied that its domestic laws comply with the terms of the treaty. Australia has agreed to be bound by the ICCPR and the ICESCR as well as other major human rights instruments, including:

  • Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide
  • Convention on the Political Rights of Women
  • International Convention on the Elimination of all forms of Racial Discrimination
  • Convention on the Elimination of all forms of Discrimination against Women
  • Convention against Torture and Other Cruel, Inhuman and Degrading Treatment or Punishment
  • Convention on the Rights of the Child
  • Convention on the Reduction of Statelessness
  • Convention relating to the Status of Stateless Persons
  • Convention Relating to the Status of Refugees
  • Slavery Convention of 1926
  • Supplementary Convention on Slavery
  • Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities

9th February 2017 at the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade’s annual NGO Forum, the Foreign Minister and Attorney-General announced that Australia would ratify the Optional Protocol to the UN Convention Against Torture and Other Forms of Cruel, Inhuman and Degrading Treatment or Punishment (OPCAT).
