Whitecoat thugs get into the VOP's home

They never 'just want to have a chat' they want to force themselves and their products on you, they want you to be their laboratory specimen, they think you're easy and even when you're not, they play extremely hard. Horrible monsters. They need to be stopped. The truth is they are evil & corrupt.

When are the Statute Laws that enable these abusive monsters going to be repealed? When is forced psychiatry going to be abolished?

Sterilisation & Human Research

Chemical sterilisation through psychiatric drugs, is something that many Australians are not aware of. They are not aware that eugenics-stigma-targeting exists even more than it did early last century.

Half the people that die in Australia each year access PBS psychiatric drug prescriptions. The average person of those 4 million people, that were on the PBS psychiatric drug list, is on 9 different psychiatric drugs. PBS does not include 1st Nations Peoples in the NT, or the Military. 

AND THE PEOPLE THE AUSTRALIAN GOVERNMENT SUBJECTS TO Forced Human Experimentation, are called 'BURDENS'. The Au govt gets $8 for every $1 invested in #FHE 

#FreeGarthDaniels #FreeJillJolliffe and millions of other Australians from the eugenics-stigma-targeting violations done under the Mental Health Acts in Australia.
PBS drugs prescriptions are just one kind of Human Research that psychiatrists in Australia forcibly perpetration on people who say no they don't want it and mean it.
Women who take contraception devices and drugs end up also being prescribed psychiatric drugs. The devices are then recognised as an experimental fail, when they were marketed as 'safe' and 'effective.'
Choice, is about actually choosing, in a system of force such as people are under in Australia, with the  State/ Territory Mental Health Acts, there is no choice, only force and coercion under duress of force.

40% of Australians get mentally-illed

Greg Hunt, the Health Minister is peddling the idea that 40% of Australians being used forcibly for human experimentation, is a great idea.

Near half a billion is being given by the Australian Government for Human Research.

How many people in other funded research areas besides Mental Health, are suffering iatrogenic effects of forced psychiatric drugs? 
- Exploitation & oppression rort Mental Health $ 53,357,755
- Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health $ 31,345,012 (1st Nations Peoples are 5 times more likely to be subjected forcibly to psychiatric torture.)

human research on people who potentially are suffering due to iatrogenic harm caused by forced psychiatry *Cloud Studies*
- Psychdrugs cause Cancer $ 109,372,127
- Psychdrugs cause Cardiovascular Disease $ 96,807,391
- Psychdrugs cause Diabetes $ 48,138,328
- Psychdrugs cause Injury $ 28,487,333
- Psychdrugs cause what is seen as Dementia $ 14,278,383
- Psychdrugs cause Obesity $ 13,078,741
- Psychdrugs cause Asthma $ 12,335,400
- Psychdrugs cause Arthritis and Osteoporosis $ 10,397,697 (a psychiatrist told me about this one, but still kept me on the drugs claiming 'we must weight up the balances')

There is no reason for forced psychiatry, psychiatrists are unreasonable exploiters
I was told repeatedly by psychiatrists from 1998 to 2012 that I had a 'chemical imbalance'. I asked those psychiatrists to prove it. They said they couldn't do that without taking samples of brain tissue. And I asked how they knew, and the one psychiatrist said they only knew because of studies on rats and people who had died. From my understanding psychiatrists hated it when I spoke metaphorically, they saw that as 'diseased' thinking. Psychiatrists are just exploiters, violent exploiters. To say they cannot see the pain and suffering they forcibly put VOP through, is to say that psychiatrists are machines that cannot sense. The point is psychiatrists know exactly how horrible the torture they put VOP through is. It's just that they choose to use substitution (something actors do for performance of fiction or historical characters). Psychiatrists choose to substitute us for specimens in a petri-dish, or some kind of 'pest' that society wants eradicated.  Is this something 40% of the Australian population should be subjected to? No! No one deserves that, no one deserves to be subjected to forced human experimentation

Robert Whitaker- Les racines de l’épidémie psychiatrique - PsykoVision -...

 In 2011 - 2012,
the psychiatrist that held me in bondage to him, he wanted total submission to
his use of me, utilisation of my body for his tests of chemicals. He put me
into a constant state of threats of much worse, fear of being accused of
‘deteriorating’ or ‘not complying.’ He didn’t want to detect any reaction from
my body that might indicate I disproved of his violations, he wanted to be at
ease that I was thoroughly indoctrinated, trusting and venerating his every
command. If he could smell a whiff of fear sweating from my apocrine glands, I
would be called to account for my ‘hygiene’ and would be threatened with
arbitrary detention and increased dose of torture, he dubbed 'required
medicine' if I didn’t wear deodorants that stung and blistered my underarms.
That psychiatrist, he forced me to pull down my pants as he got his staff to
stick pricks full of poison in me each fortnight, or I would be put in
arbitrary detention, dose increase, tied down, maybe even electrocuted. I
feigned that I had an epiphany, that I needed his abuse, and with much measured
interrogation, he was suitably satisfied I’d do his bidding without giving him
trouble, and if I didn’t, he could just easily get me again, so I got to go on his
pet research project on a new drug. Horrible drug too, but with a pill, I could
pretend I took it, and only take a little when I saw him, so I could clearly
look him in the eye and say I’d taken it, because if he suspected I didn’t a
blood test would be ordered.

Neuroleptics are the most horrible torture, that shuts
down your ability to communicate, as well as your physical ability. It’s worse
than any other torture, it deprives you of yourself.

Please makes sure that Australia repeals the Mental
Health Acts, that enable psychiatrists to forcibly exploit millions of people
for invasive, cruel human experimentation . I have until Jan 3rd to get
signatures on this Government e-petition

Please think of those #VOP who are, or are yet to be
arbitrarily detained & tortured 24/7 indefinitely during the holiday
season, while the rest of Australia is feasting and laughing.

Petitions to abolish forced psychiatry!

My NEW PETITION to Abolish Forced Psychiatry by repealing Mental Health Acts in Australia

 *please sign & share*

Petition number:             EN0422
Date submitted:               13/11/2017
(wait ten seconds ignore the 'results not found' script, it is a glitch. the blue dot will eventually stop pulsating & settle on the site)
•             Reason: This petition of certain citizens of Australia draws to the attention of the House that Victims of Psychiatrists (VOP) are subjected to brutal persecution, violent exploitation for the purpose of invasive, cruel, lucrative forced human experimentation. Psychiatrists, are wrongly given statutory power in Australia to arbitrarily detain, torture with poisons 24/7 indefinitely, indoctrinate, interrogate, electrocute, tie a person up… until the person breaks under torture, complying under duress. Victim-blaming propaganda, threats of further torture and disenfranchisement are employed to silence VOP who speak out against forced psychiatry. Many victims of crime, corruption and pollution are silenced by forced psychiatry, allowing horrendous abuses, such as paedophilia, to continue. Many intelligent, inventive, artistic people are murdered, maimed and their creations never allowed to reach fruition. Half the population dies in Australia each year, dies iatrogenic deaths from forced psychiatric drugs. The Mental Health System is a system of diabolical Eugenics-Stigma-targeting, violation in the guise of 'protection.'
•             Request: We, the Victims of Psychiatrists (VOP) and allies, therefore ask the House to request the Prime Minister and the Attorney General to abolish all State/ Territory Mental Health Acts and Federal Legislation that perpetrates Forced Psychiatry, stop discriminating (on the basis of perceived disability, financial and social disenfranchisement, atheist beliefs, religious and creative expression of the unknown or undefined) and if necessary replace these State/ Territory Mental Health Acts with a Federal Human Rights and Reparations Act, equivalent to the signed and ratified United Nations Convention On The Rights Of Persons With Disabilities.

This petition was considered by the Standing Committee on Petitions at a recent meeting, and was found to meet the petition requirements. It is now available for signature online.

Signatures open: 6/12/2017

Eugenicists are not legitimate in debates

Eugenicists are not normal, a construct designed to target groups of the population for exploitation, utilising science-is-golden campaigning as well as religious preaching to achieve control over the population, enabling a range of scam marketing to occur. Terms like 'hygiene' and 'health', as well as 'care' and 'protection' and of course 'medicine' have been totally perverted by eugenicists' propaganda, put into government advice, not just advertise. 

Eugenicists target what they term 'human stigmas' and made handshakes with government legislators in the mid 20th century, in order to profit from the violent exploitation that is Forced Human Experimentation.
read Emily Jane Wilson's book, Eugenic Ideology & racial fitness in QLD here

For a public broadcaster, or anyone to say that they should not censor any debate conducted ‘in good faith’ is to not realise the in good faith rule is used to exploit millions of Australians every year forcibly for human experimentation in the guise of ‘care’ and ‘medicine.’ The term 'in good faith' gives medicos that violently exploit people for cruel, inhuman degrading medical experiments a status that is 'above the law', that is they cannot be charged with the crime of torture, assault or servitude, that they regularly inflict on people under Mental Health Legislation ( in Australia each state/ territory has a Mental Health Act that likely can only be repealed should a Federal Human Rights Act come about to over-turn these nebulous, exploitative, cruel Mental Health Acts.)

Is it okay, or not okay to victimise some people on the basis of perceived disability? That's not even debated, the ABC is FULL bias on that. There is little thought for Intersectionality of those Sectioned. Just more campaigns to sell cruel experimental products as 'health' and 'cures'.

It’s not okay, however, to put people into this Sectioned (under the Mental Health Act) category anymore on the basis of the being same-sex attracted, though there are still attempts from the eugenicists/ psychiatrists/ psychologists to do just that. That said, while there is still a group of people being targeted for victimisation under statute law, there is no real equality before the law, not for anyone. Government Eugenics laws for 'protection' have even arbitrarily detained journalist and human rights defender Jill Jolliffe, who can articulate her rights very clearly. Eugenicists have really, really worn out that word 'protection' in Australia, what with the repealed Protectionist Act, but it doesn't make the public wise to the eugenics antics, of those the public see as 'elite scientists' chattering the psychobabble illogical of eugenics.

                Eugenicists will always claim to want to deny equality for some groups of people in the name of ‘protection’ of something else. So when lobbyists for equality ask to be afforded ‘the same rights and protections’ as everyone else, it is a laughable construct for the eugenicists who swoop in and babble the need to ‘protect’ this or that, as a reason for inequality, or for violent, horrific intrusions on human lives.

okay, here's a game...
Being ____ is not against the law in any state. ____  are normal people. ____ should be treated equally. It’s simple. ____ are not exempt from the Anti-Discrimination Act.

You can’t breed us out of existence because we do originate mostly from _____ people. We are 25 to 50 %. But it’s not like there’s an army of us who are going to take over. We just want to have the same rights, and not be discriminated against on the basis of _______.

(Acknowledging Magda Szubanski here for the sentence modelling, and YES YES YES definitely YES.)

And now I think of it 25% to 50% is a large number of people to dehumanise, so there is in a way an army of VOP ready to take over, but psychiatrists kill us off 25 years earlier than the rest of the population, keep us in arbitrary detention, torturing us with drugs that have our nervous system shut-down 24/7 indefinitely, then vilify us in the public eye, so we're either pitifully discredited as 'consumer burden' or vilified as violent and resistant. VOP army? Na. There's all of two or a few at the State Library at best, who dare say the forced treatment must be stopped, even though there are 1.5 billion world-wide that would definitely protest if they didn't fear far worse happening to them via violent eugenics-based Mental Health Acts, than has already inflicted on them. 

Please sign Bernard Daniels petition. His son is still being tortured by psychiatrists, and vilified for standing up for his rights, vilified for iatrogenic suffering. But Garth Daniels is not the only VOP being maimed, there are around 100,000 VOP murdered by psychiatrists every year in Australia, who of course murdered in good faith. Who has faith in that? Those people indoctrinated by eugenicists do. Get stuffed if you are one of them and you 'other' VOP, or any other group of people that has been targeted by eugenicists for vilification, exploitation and denial. Please also sign Canada's Petition to stop Electrocution under GA. And Japan's Petition to stop people being put into mechanical ties for months.

Julie Greene: My Experience With an Eating Disorder

Whenever I listen to someone talking about eating disorders, I get a bowl of something I've cooked from scratch & eat it. No propylene glycol or other preservatives in it to make me feel like not eating it. Cheers. Studies on little animals, bigger animals & humans in the early to mid 20th century have statistics to say that Propylene Glycol causes loss of appetite in large doses, and larger appetite in smaller doses, of course there are variants to that rule, because animals/ humans vary. Propylene Glycol is a petroleum-based substance that is put into nearly all food-based products, especially confectionery (not something you can eat after starving because it is an unfood). Cooking from scratch can mean avoiding a lot of that. Breathing Propylene Glycol in the air is a different matter. I'm currently petitioning the government to get this poison out of personal products & workplaces. Please sign & share if you can:

Also Forced Psychiatry must be stopped, no more forced human experimentation:

'Health Department Rejected Media Release October 17, 2017 Mental health consumers have won another battle against the use of forced medication. After years of being subject to Community Treatment Orders (CTO), 71 year old Kerry O’Malley today won agreement from the Mental Health Review Tribunal to reject the CTO against her. A forced injection is the antithesis of health care disgracing all who say nothing. This afternoon Kerry said “There were a number of prayer requests that went up from my friends but I still needed all of you to get Victory. I am very grateful”.'

Peerly Human: Insider Secrets: The Recipes for Well-Being

Peerly Human: Insider Secrets: The Recipes for Well-Being: Each of the four paradigms has their own recipe for well-being. Let's take a look. 1. Disease model psychiatry    According to ...

Countering MHA Propaganda Day 10th Oct

In Australia psychiatrists are responsible for causing half of all deaths, every year. That'll be around 100,000 people killed by psychiatrists in 2017 when the statistics come out. This iatrogenic killing is not given the attention it should be given, the deaths are covered-up, but what is irrefutable is that half the people who die each year in Australia are on PBS psychiatric prescription medicines. And how many of those people do you think would voluntarily take what is killing them 25 years younger than the rest of the population? killing them 24/7 with poisoning that makes them twitch and suffer as the drugs do a 3/4 or more shut-down of their nervous system, causing something similar to stroke, only 24/7 indefinitely...
• Numbness, tingling, weakness, or inability to move a part or all of one side of the body (paralysis).
• Dimness, blurring, double vision, or loss of vision in one or both eyes.
• Loss of speech, trouble talking, or trouble understanding speech.
• Sudden, severe headache.
• Dizziness, unsteadiness, or the inability to stand or walk, especially if other symptoms are present.
• Confusion or a change in level of consciousness or behavior.
• Severe nausea or vomiting. 

... none of the people subjected to psychiatry would choose to take those drugs. Torture, it breaks people into compliance. No one wants to be enslaved as a laboratory specimen. No one wants to be one of the millions of people used in neuroleptic trials in Australia. The victims of psychiatrists get nothing but harm from it.

No one wants to be arbitrarily detained, without charge, let alone taken to a place where they're forcibly tortured 24/7 indefinitely, for the profit of those doing human experimentation. But for 10,000 Victorians last year that's exactly what happened to them. The ghouls who do it try to dehumanise their victims, but it is those ghoul violators, the psychiatrists & coterie who should be seen as UnAustralia, and not fit to be called a human. That's why you need to listen to Victims of Psychiatrists (VOΨ) not those who are too scared to speak out against their violators (who adhere to the derogatory term 'consumer'), and certainly not the violating psychiatrists & coterie, who run the Mental Health Association eugenics propaganda bandwagon, to vilify and silence anyone who dares apposed their disgusting abuse of human rights.

I was subjected to 14 years of forced neuroleptics, I'd never choose it, no matter if they paid me billions. I'd have paid whatever I could to stop them from forcibly injecting me.

The Australian Government, Psychiatrists & coterie make a lot of money through investments from pharmaceutical companies to do these forced human trials. Escalating the torture on a person, until the victims comply is what psychiatrists do routinely, to keep the exploitation seeming like people volunteer to take psychiatric poisons. They do not. Compliance under duress, is not compliance. You cannot have a system of Forced Psychiatry, enforced by government Statute Law, Mental Health Acts, that discriminate on the basis of perceived disability, and say you have a consumer market. To call victims of psychiatrists 'consumers' just adds insult to our injuries, silencing and making out we are complicit in our own deaths.

In Victoria, 10,000 people were subjected to Forced Psychiatry last year. This means those 10,000 people were held down and injected, until they agreed to take the drugs orally (yes they check under your tongue, then they ask for a blood sample), if the person doesn't agree they are injected again and again until they do, tied up in a 4-point on a stretcher, electrocuted under General Anesthetic, held in arbitrary detention longer, have more psychiatric drugs added and doses increased, be subjected to ritual interrogation and verbal abuse from psychiatrists determined to break their will with dehumanising labels... until they comply.

Please do all you can to repeal not only the Victorian Mental Health Act, but all the Mental Health Acts in each State/ Territory of Australia. These are nebulous acts, designed to exploit around quarter of the population forcibly for human experimentation.

As a nation, Australia needs to be thinking of Intersectionality of Sectioned, that is those sectioned under Mental Health Acts, who are more often than not whistle-blowers and victims-of-crime. Too much is covered-up when the population allows a sector of the community to be dehumanised, victim-blamed and silence forcibly for disgusting violent exploitation, that contravenes the International Covenants Australia has signed, such as the UN CRPD. People who are civilians, not charged with a crime, because they haven't committed one, but are being arbitrarily detained and tortured in the guise of medicine. These people innocent civilians do not have a right to Legal Aid, they literally do not have the same right to Legal Aid as people charged with crimes do, therefore less than 9% of people in Victoria, Australia can get legal Aid for a Mental Health Tribunal, let alone a VCAT challenge, or a Supreme Court challenge. That said, PBU & NJE are in the 9% and a legal challenge is still underway in the Supreme Court, for the 1st time, to stop Electrocution under General Anesthetic being forced on these two people. Meanwhile many more people are electrocuted, injected, arbitrarily detained and don't even have access to Legal Aid. And even if PBU & NJE won, would it stop Forced Psychiatry? Because that's what's needed, abolition of Forced Psychiatry, a repealing of the Victorian Mental Health Act.

Perhaps if 100,000 people marched in every city of Australia, in solidarity with all those killed by psychiatrists this year, perhaps then, there might be some kind of conversation towards stopping forced psychiatry.

There should be no forced medicine. There should be no discrimination on the basis of perceived disability. Countries, such as Australia, that have nebulous, discriminatory, violent Mental Health Acts that exploit in order to make billions from forced human experimentation, are not in any way a democracy for those who are being exploited.

Please consider countering the Mental Health Association propaganda week in early October, particularly the 10th of October, in solidarity with Victims of Psychiatrists (VOΨ/ VOP).

Say it:

  • Forced Human Experimentation is not okay
  • Iatrogenic killing must be exposed and stopped
  • Forced Psychiatry must be abolished
  • The Victorian Mental Health Act, and all Mental Health Acts in Australia, and in the world must be repealed.
  • Equality Before the Law, the most important part of that is freedom from torture. And torture is what psychiatrists do to their victims, it doesn't matter that the perpetrators call it 'medicine'. Psychiatrists are using people Forcibly for Human Trials. Please see that it stops, and these monsters, these ghoul psychiatrists are put on trial, and there is some kind of justice brought about for people who have been subjected to forced psychiatry for years, decades, a life-time, maimed and killed.
  • Do not allow for laws that discriminate on the basis of perceived disability, and commit violent crimes under the guise of Medicine, IN YOUR NAME.
  • Solidarity with Victims of Psychiatrists (VOΨ/ VOP)

It was 11th Sept when I sent a petition to the Australian House of Representatives Standing Committee on Petitions and they gave a receipt of reply. Let us hope that the petition appears before Oct 10th.
  • Reason: This petition of certain citizens of Australia draws to the attention of the House that Victims of Psychiatrists (VOΨ) are subjected to brutal persecution, inhuman exploitation for the purpose of invasive, cruel, lucrative forced medical experimentation, causing millions to be maimed and die from arbitrary detention and 24/7 indefinite torture. The perpetrating psychiatrists, are given statutory power in Australia to forcibly detain, poison, indoctrinate and use torturous procedures while conducting research without consent on innocent citizens, in the guise of 'medicine’. Victim-blaming propaganda, threats of further torture and disenfranchisement are also employed to silence VOΨ who speak out against forced psychiatry.
  • Request: We, the Victims of Psychiatrists (VOΨ) and allies, therefore ask the House to request the Prime Minister and the Attorney General to repeal all State/ Territory Mental Health Acts and Federal Legislation that perpetrates Forced Psychiatry, discriminating on the basis of perceived disability, financial and social disenfranchisement, atheist beliefs and creative expression of the unknown or undefined.

In front of the State Library of Victoria, we will stand and sing, until the Victorian Mental Health Act is repealed. Please join us on Saturday Oct 7th, and if possible Tues Oct 10th.

Putting up a fight

Don't allow the State of Victoria, Australia, to perpetrate this horrendous crime against NJE. No one deserves to be forced into invasive, cruel, human experimentation.

When someone says they do not want to be tortured by psychiatrists, and the State Government insists that the victim doesn't know what's good for them, that's just disgusting violence, for any country to perpetrate, let alone a country that wants to claim it is a democracy.

24/7 indefinite torture and arbitrary detention. That's what psychiatry is.

The State of Victoria, Australia, is disgusting. NJE has appealed VCAT's decision in hope to not be tortured like this. 

How horrible it must be for NJE to be told by VCAT that she must be able to weigh up how good being inflicted with electrocution under GA is for the economy, and stop being so selfish as to not want to be tortured, for the profits of whitecoats.

Most people in Victoria, Australia, are never able to get free from psychiatrists, they are held in the most horrifying kind of servitude for the rest of their lives. The servitude of being a human laboratory specimen, that yields very lucrative profits for the Australian economy, but makes the life of the person being used in that manner unbearable.

It is a really disgusting thing to know, that your economy is run, and has been running for over 200 years, through the exploitation of humans forcibly for invasive, cruel human experimentation, under the guise of psychiatric medicine. 

Look at the history of psychiatry, the miracle cures of surgical lobotomies that won Nobel Prizes, the Insulin Shock, the LSD tests and tests... and before that the ice-baths and hot sheet wrapping that gave people 3rd degree burns, the injections of animal hormones... the lauding and praising of these monsters that have only found out one thing: how to torture people into being so afraid they dare not speak out against their perpetrators, or defy them.

NJE has the fight still in her. She's speaking out against psychiatry. 

Don't let her be maimed and killed by psychiatrists. Too many Victims of Psychiatrists just disappear, unnamed unknown this way.

The Supreme Court will hear the appeal on August 14 and 15.

OPCAT paper for AHRC

response to questions posed at part 5.1 of The Australian Human Rights Commission Consultation Paper on the Convention Against Torture (optional Protocol)
-          Ms Initially NO


1. Inspection framework

Crucial gaps

The exploitation of citizens for invasive, cruel, forced human research, that is done by psychiatrists, hand-in-hand with government legislation, such as the Victorian Mental Health Act, is not just wide-spread legislated torture, but systematic torture in the guise of medicine. This deliberate inflicting of torture under the guise of medicine, for the purpose of lucrative human experimentation, cannot be seen as rogue psychiatrists, or facilities, given that the Australian Government profits from pharmaceutical donations into human research in psychiatry, as do psychiatrists and coterie.

Staffing without vested interests

In investigating Psychiatric Facilities where people are being tortured 24/7 indefinitely and arbitrarily detained without charge, there must not be Mental Health Professionals included on visiting teams, as this might mean that the status quo of psychiatrists’ world-wide exploitative practices continue in Australia, despite signing and ratifying the Optional Protocol of the United Nations Convention Against Torture (OPCAT), in December 2017. Conflicts of interest, vested interests are well-known to be prohibitive to exposure of exploitation and torture. Should investigations cover-up, rather than expose what is horrendous systematic exploitative torture in Psychiatric Facilities, that means Australia would continue to frustrate OPCAT, and bring the UN into a very challenging position, as to whether countries that sign conventions and have inspections actually make any kinds of real changes to the most disgustingly widespread exploitation of the millennium, which is forced human experimentation, in the guise of care/ medicine, when it is neither care, assistance or medicine, it is torture.

Government Legislation needs to be repealed for OPCAT compliance

·        Australia needs to repeal all State/ Territory Mental Health Acts, so that people are not discriminated against on the basis of perceived disability, subjected to arbitrary detention on that basis, and subjected to the psychiatrists’ intentional escalation of painful, disabling, abusive, murderous treatments, until that person agrees to the psychiatrist’s labelling of them and agrees to take the treatment the psychiatrists prescribes.

·        Australia needs to also look at the laws that guard against human research being forced upon a person by medical practitioners. There must not be any more Research Without Consent, Exception From Informed Consent Research, Emergency Research… or any other terms that subject a person to human experimentation against their will. The sale of hospital information gathered from forced psychiatry must also be retrospectively held in question, and there must be no more perpetrators profiting from this.

·        Victims of Psychiatrists, subjected to forced treatments, who were/ are being broken-down under the pain-thresholds of arbitrary detention, painful chemicals injectiond, fettering of limbs, isolation, electrocution, interrogation, dehumanisation and indoctrination… must be given some sort of reparations for their grief and assurance that no more torture, exploitation of people for the purposes of forced human experimentation, arbitrary detention on the basis of ‘mental illness’ that is perceived disability, hearsay and conjecture from third-parties, cognitive and social diversity, will occur.

·        The medical perpetrators must be charged under the Crimes Act for the torture offense inflicted, and/or government officials must be held accountable. There must be future disincentive for similar torturous exploitation to occur. At the moment medicos cannot be charged for conducting medical experimentation. This loophole in the Medical Treatments Act that allow for Forced Psychiatry must be repealed.

2. Implementation & Documentation

Victim-blame & silencing

The silencing of people who are/have suffered forced psychiatry is widespread in Australia. To speak out against torture under this government-psychiatry exploitation racket section via the Mental Health Acts, means ostracization, denial, condemnation, job loss… and threats of future violations should the person be financially and/or socially disenfranchised again. This silencing of those who have experienced Australian Government Legislated torture under State/Territory Mental Health Acts must not continue.

Consulting with Victims of Psychiatrists
(NOT consumers/ users even though the Australian government terms all people sectioned under the Victorian Mental Health Act ‘consumers’ or ‘users’.)

At what point are victims of State Legislated torture consulted, such as victims of psychiatrists who are or have been tortured 24/7 for a number of days, weeks, years, or nearly their whole life without reprieve? At what point do inspectors look at the torture going on in the Community, under Treatment Orders, that threaten further arbitrary detention if the person does not appear for the appointment the psychiatrist demands and the fortnightly injection, or blood test?


Do inspectors of psychiatric facilities have any means to ensure people that are interviewed  won’t be subjected to an escalation of pain-thresholds in the guise of ‘treatment’ or ‘management’ should the person being tortured tell the inspectors that they do not agree with the physical torture inflicted on them, or the verbal abuse the psychiatrist subjects them to in demanding they adhere to mentally-illing terms, or the isolation, deprivation of their liberty, personal autonomy, and removal of items such as: shoe-laces, phone, belt, pens, paper, books, computer, visitors, food (usually for fasting bloods, but also specific food that people need).

Humiliation/ Sterilisation/ Dehumanisation/ abuse of women

Inspectors need to think about how-to ask women if the chemicals they were forcibly injected with caused their body to immediately lose their uterus-lining, and how long the drugs they were forced on suspended their menstrual cycle for? This is a considerably cruel, sterilising effect of neuroleptics and humiliating. Humiliating, when the women aren’t even able to stand up straight on these drugs, let alone try, be able to find a way to stop the blood flow after being injected; when nurses are too busy to even supply sanitary napkins, then write up complaints about the women bleeding, in her file, as if she were somehow immoral, or incapable of hygiene before they injected her and arbitrarily detained her.
Inspectors need to think about ways of asking if women have been assaulted while forced into psychiatric detention and placed on major tranquilisers in mixed wards. Lewd violence has been recently reported to have been inflicted on 75% of Australian women in mixed psychiatric wards. The per cent may be higher, as psychiatrists and nursing staff readily deny the women in psychiatric facilities the validity as a human beings and so cannot be trusted to be confided in. Besides, women are used to not being believed by psychiatrists and nursing staff, even when they talk about effects of the drugs that are very obviously effects of the drug and indicated as effects of the drug on the drug company’s documentation. Women subjected to forced psychiatry are used to not being believed by psychiatrists about anything and many women who do report assault, are dismissed as deluded. This means that women become even more vulnerable to perpetrators, not only psychiatrists.

Chemical Sensitivity, medical emergencies ignored and aggravated by psychiatric facilities

Hospitals are very toxic environments for people who suffer from petroleum-based chemical sensitivities. This is totally ignored, even when a person forced into the hospital setting tells the psychiatrists, and the Assessment Team. In fact, it seems that psychiatrists are diagnosing a person who is sensitive to toxins in the environment as ‘mentally-ill’. This is a huge oversight given that 38% of the population react to petroleum-based substances in foods, medicines, toothpastes, cleaning products, as well as second-hand tobacco, perfumes, deodorants, and hospital air-conditioners that sterilise the air with propylene glycol. Psychiatrists knowingly increase a person’s suffering by dismissing the person when they tell psychiatrists they have a chemical sensitivity, and psychiatrists intentionally increasing the dose of the chemicals that the person says is harmful, to force the person to comply with what they tell the psychiatrist they do not want; what is hurting the victim, horrendously disabling the victim, and increasing their sensitivity permanently to these substances.
Both Multiple Chemical Sensitivity and Electrical Sensitivity are undeniable environment sensitivities, that psychiatrists ignore, do not prepare hospital spaces in any way to accommodate people suffering this (when they arbitrarily detain), and make a person further disabled through their interventions. Psychiatrists also ignore other important medical emergencies such as blood disorders, cancer, hernia, physical brain injury and people who have been victims-of-crime that need to find someone they can trust to report these crimes.

3. Urgent Issues

Specific places of detention that are of immediate concern

Psychiatric hospitals/ facilities/ clinics where people are forced into human research servitude. In particular: Alfred Burnet Viral Load Laboratory (Alfred Health) ABN: 27 318 956. (From 1st hand experience of 14 years of forced psychiatry under the VMHA, as well as conversations with other victims of Alfred Hospital Psychiatric Unit (Prahran, Victoria) who were tortured while in those facilities and forced to comply with Community Treatment Orders, under the threat of more arbitrary detention.)

Broader issues

Under State/ Territory Mental Health Acts –
·        Arbitrary Detention of persons who have not been charged with a crime, in psychiatric and aged care facilities, and 24/7 indefinite torture, is systematic and government legislated.

·        The use of police force to arbitrarily detain persons who have not been charged with a crime (often not even read the Section under the VMHA) when they refuse to go with the medical staff, is systematic.

·        The forcing of torturous drugs and procedures on people, that harm the person, do not help, increase sensitivity to petroleum-based chemicals, cause brain-damage… and all those effects listed on the drug company’s website is systematic.

·        The profiteering of government, psychiatrists and biopharmaceutical research companies from the use of people by force, under government legislation, for human research and the acquired Medical Information, the sale of this research/ information is systematic and has a well-oiled propaganda machine that victim-blames and oppresses those who are subjected to torturous forced psychiatry.

·        Less than 20% legal representation for persons subjected to arbitrary detention and forced psychiatry on the basis of perceived disability under the Victorian Mental Health Act is horrendous, yet other States/Territories in Australia are not much better. It seems criminals in this country have more rights than victims do.

·        The threat of being put in a forensic psychiatric facility, without charge, for people who physical defend themselves against forced psychiatry.

·        The Mental Health Tribunals decision-making slanted towards a person needing to adhere to the psychiatrist’s treatment and labelling before Treatment Orders are revoked, or the person is allowed out of arbitrary detention, means the person has to agree to be compliant with appointments and treatments they do not want or need, because the threat of further arbitrary detention will occur. This slant of the Tribunals also means that a person who is being subjected to forced psychiatry dare not tell the truth of how they feel about the treatment, lest they are subjected to more arbitrary detention and higher doses all over again. If a person does tell the truth of disagreeing with the psychiatrist, they are not given freedom from detention and State Legislated invasive, cruel, degrading, inhuman, maiming murderous treatments. Mental Health Tribunals are a farce to rival Nazi Courts.

Current practices of seclusion & escalation of torture to extract compliance

Current psychiatric practices under the VMHA of escalating seclusion, isolation, fettering, increasing doses and number of chemicals injected, electrocution, abusive/ dehumanising forced interviews designed to break a person down and press upon them the need to be in agreement with the psychiatrists labelling or treatment, even goes as far as to put a person in a forensic psychiatric facility, potentially forever, with people charged with a crime, if the victim physically tries to defend themselves against forced psychiatry. This intentional torture of breaking a person down into compliance is systematic, as it is cruel. Once a psychiatrist has gained a forced agreement/ pretence/ indoctrination with their treatment, the psychiatrist can say that they are no longer forcing treatment, that the person has ‘stabilised’ and this means the data gathered can be more easily utilised in research and sales from that Medical Information research, given the verbal ‘compliance’ that was got through via intentional physical torturous duress being imposed.

4.  National Preventative Measures engaging with civil society representatives

Consultation and liaison

Consulting with all the people who have attended Mental Health Tribunals to try and stop arbitrary detention and the torture of forced psychiatry is necessary. At the moment consultations are only with those people who have suffered coerced/ forced psychiatry and are willing or indoctrinated into reinforcing the imposed status quo of maintaining forced psychiatry. It is important to actively engage with the people who have suffered forced psychiatry that know it was torture, why it was torture, and that it was inflicted on them deliberately, with intent.
Given that ‘intentionally’ means, ‘without accident’, and it is no accident that a person is held down and injected with substances that cause Tardive Dyskinesia, Akathisia, Dystonia… that psychiatrists can easily see, easily hear the victim complain of, and also easily recognise are documented in medical journals to be torturous for the person, there should be no argument that forced psychiatry is torture, and that drugs that temporarily mask this suffering, are documented to increase torturous effects of forced psychiatry rather than decrease and make the injury, such as Tardive Dyskinesia permanent.
There are over a million Australians alive who have been or are being tortured 24/7 indefinitely by psychiatrists. This Government Legislated interference in human lives must stop. And those who wish to speak out against the perpetrators must be allowed without any fear of the torture being increased, of being arbitrarily detained, or held longer, or being vilified for doing so.
The risk for Victims of Psychiatrists that gain freedom, of being tortured again by psychiatrists is high, this government legislated torture via psychiatrists is systematic and silencing in its fear inducing cruelties. People are very afraid to speak out against psychiatric treatments, so when they do, they need to be listened to.

Problems in places of detention

When people are not even charged with a crime, because they have not committed one, to have forced psychiatry and arbitrary detention forced on them, in increasing pain-thresholds to gain adherence to what a psychiatrists wants, is a huge human rights breach under OPCAT and the CRPD OP. This is torture done for lucrative exploitation of human research and it must be stopped. Mental Health Acts are nebulous arbitrary legislation, laws that are not about enforcing any kind of legal sanctions… because what is the crime a person is sectioned under in the Victorian Mental Health Act? Human traits of cognitive and social diversity? That’s not a crime. And though the lay person thinks that a person sectioned under the VMHA has to be ‘a harm to self or others’ that is not how that law is written at all, the person need only, ‘appear to be mentally-ill’ (according to the psychiatrist) and ‘in need of immediate treatment’ (according to the psychiatrist). This is all very nebulous, all very discriminatory, all very violent and exploitative, this VMHA; especially when you consider the suffering inflicted on the people Sectioned by psychiatrists under this violent government legislation, and the profits that industries make out of the people that are subjected to forced psychiatry through sales of Medical Information gather from the forced human experimentation.
The VMHA clearly needs to be repealed, reparations for those tortured under this government legislation need to replace the exploitation that is the Mental Health System in Australia.
Problems in places of detention are most easily solved by communicating with the people who are being subjected to torture in these places, rather than 2nd and 3rd parties, or the perpetrating psychiatrists. Communicating with Victims of Psychiatrists will be the only way to stop 200 years of torturous, exploitative forced human research under the guise of psychiatric medicine.

5. Working with key government stakeholders

Address the needs of vulnerable groups of people in detention

All people subjected to forced psychiatry are vulnerable. These forced treatments must be stopped, it is iatrogenic killing, it is horrendously cruel maiming, this Government Legislated abuse of human lives.
People with Multiple Chemical Sensitivity must have their Advanced Directives recognised (as should all people who make Advance Directives), they must be listened to. This should be the same for people with Electrical Sensitivity. These people with MCS and ES must not be mentally-illed for attempting to communicate what is happening to them. They should not need an intrusive, painful, potentially dangerous, medical test either.
The cruelty of arbitrary detention and forced psychiatry must be replaced with reparations, for those in need, choice-based services only. Psychiatry must not continue to be an arm of the law, discriminating against perceived disability, detaining and torturing whistle-blowers and victims of crime all too easily, under the guise of ‘medicine’. This is not a democracy for those who are shut-up and shut-down by psychiatrists and government legislation which allows psychiatrists to torture people 24/7 indefinitely, and sell the information they gather from this torturous experiments.
When perpetrating psychiatrists torture and then are given a status of ‘expert’ in courts of law over their victims, this is how exploitation for human experimentation has been allowed to thrive in Australia for over 200 years too long, while victims are murdered, maimed, disfigured, dehumanised and silenced – as if they were the violators.

6.  the role of the United Nations Subcommittee on the Prevention of Torture

It is likely that over quarter of the population has suffered arbitrary detention and torture under the Australian government-psychiatrist exploitation of humans for research. There are people from the 1960s that are still alive that suffered forced Insulin Shock, forced LSD in psychiatric hospitals… and other forced human experiments that cannot be denied to be torture, yet they’ve neither received adequate apology or reparations, or assurances that persons will not be subjected to the new array of experiments that government-psychiatry inflicts upon a person against their will, under the ‘in good faith rule’ and the idea that it was a reasonable thing for government-psychiatry to inflicts upon a person against their will in that era. ‘In good faith’, it seems, is a phrase allowing for psychiatrists to get away will serial killing and maiming.
Please press upon the SPT that there is a need for Victims of Psychiatrists to be experts, in regards to this widespread arbitrary detention, forced 24/7 indefinite torture in the guise of medical treatment, care, management. It is time to stop ignoring the people who are being harmed, because it is profitable exploitation to continue. Stopping this horrendous crime is necessary and difficult, and what must be done. Victims of Psychiatrists will be the best people to assist in this (just please don’t expect VOPs to volunteer their services without remuneration, as is often the case. Victims of Psychiatrists are people that have to earn a living to survive just like everyone else, and they are so marginalised and oppressed that all too often if they get paid it is in Gift Cards. Some respect please.)

7.  More detailed decisions to be made on how to apply OPCAT in Australia

Australia must repeal all laws that allow forced medicine, research without consent, and arbitrary detention on the basis of perceived disability, most especially the Victorian Mental Health Act, as well as all Mental Health Acts in states/ territories. To allow medicine to be forced is to allow torture in the guise of medicine to continue.
Australia still does frustrate the UN CRPD, though it was signed and ratified in 2008 by continuing to have forced psychiatry in 2017.  Forced psychiatry must be stopped, all MHAs must be repealed.

Australia, in the last 200 years has had a history of covering up exploitation that is done through Government Legislation, rarely compensates victims, and official apologies generally occur some 50 years after the exploitation is stopped, or really doesn’t occur at all. This is not okay. Government Legislated torture under Mental Health Acts, needs to stop now, reparations need to happen now, or Australia is not honouring the conventions it has signed and ratified and therefore cannot be trusted on Government word or signature.

Victims are not ‘users’ of perpetrators

‘We can only address concerns about a person's experience using the mental health system.’
Kaaren Dahl
Manager Resolutions and Review
Mental Health Complaints Commissioner

Victims are not ‘users’ of perpetrators. To have a false idea perpetuated in governing bodies that are meant to oversee corruption and abuse, to have a false idea that there are only ‘users’ of a system designed for exploitation, that arbitrarily detains and tortures 24/7 indefinitely, escalating the torture on those who do not submit and adhere, escalating pain-thresholds of human endurance until the person breaks down and submits to agree to the perpetrator’s wishes to perpetrate that false idea that victims are users of those perpetrating violence is horrendous. There are no ‘users’ of such violence upon their person. It is just such a ridiculous notion to say a victim asks for what they are assaulted with. Those who are government funded to do forced psychiatry are the exploiters. The exploited are not users or consumers of the forced psychiatry, that kind of horrendously violent, diabolically cruel exploitation can never be a consumer market.
                Hand-in-hand with the government, psychiatrists’ exploitation racket is designed to get overseas investments for human experimentation, forced human experimentation. ‘The clinical trials sector is worth around $1 billion per annum to Australia with direct foreign investment of over $450 million per annum. The pharmaceuticals industry has estimated that pharmaceuticals clinical trials alone are worth $450 million each year in Australia,’ pharmaceutical representatives of human research boasted in 2011.
The victims of this exploitation are told again and again that they must be agreeable to the treatment. These victims are agreeing under massive duress of 24/7 indefinite torture inflicted on them by government funded and legislated forced psychiatry. The cruelties inflicted are horrific for even one minute of enduring them, let alone knowing the 24/7 abuse is indefinite and the more the victim challenges the oppressing psychiatrists treatment, the more the poisons injected in will increase in dosage, additional electrocution will be added, isolation, increased dehumanisation, verbal disfiguring, interrogation, indoctrination, deprivations and fettering of limbs.
The person oppressed by torture, is not a user of torture, they are a victim, and though they may be a survivor, if the focus is on survivors, never victims, then those who fought and died are never acknowledged. Those whose potential is ruined by psychiatrists is not even given much thought, and the persecution, torture and oppression of victims is all too easily dismissed with victim-blaming mentality, that reverses the truth of the exploitation racket.
                No one enjoys saying that what was done to them has destroyed their life, especially people who fight, and don’t get totally destroyed, they get redirected down a very harsh, unpopular and financially unrewarding path of activism.
When life’s paths are blocked-off due to a person not being allowed to tell the truth of government legislated medico exploitation – that’s when a person should think about starting to use the word ‘victim’, because they are a victim of oppression.
Until the oppression shifts, the continual crushing of abilities, threats, violent exploitation and silencing will continue. Members of society (that have been taught to victim-blame, silence and oppress) need to start reaching out, supporting and enabling the oppressed to be acknowledged, heard, seen, made sense of, rather than attempting to speak for those they dub ‘voiceless’ (when talking over the top of some very loud voices, that have much to say when allowed, rather than denied, abused, threatened and belittled for speaking the truth). People must stop dismissing the outrage the victim suffered and is suffering and desperately trying to communicate as something else other than what it is. To dismiss victims of psychiatrists as ‘medical complaints’, is one of many ways the victims of psychiatrists continue to be silenced, and the corrupt medic-government exploitation racket continues.
Is there any limits to the pain-thresholds psychiatrists can inflict on persons that stand-strong and continue to say they have human rights? Even when a person dies, the data gathered from their exploitation by government legislated medico exploitation is sold and resold as ‘science.’
Who are the people that have lived in this society and have done nothing to stop this diabolical exploitation racket continuing? Too many, for too long, over 200 years too long. How cowardly is our society? How easily people just take to the propaganda, that can easily be seen for what it is, given the history of this government-medico exploitation racket. What kind of fools are the people the allow this to go on and on and on?
It is not ‘medicine’ just because the perpetrating psychiatrists say it is. This torture for the purposes of lucrative human experimentation is what Psychiatric Treatment is. The systematic cruelties are not inflicted by rogue psychiatrists, this is the Government Legislated Psychiatrists exploitation racket that’s been going on over 200 years too long, that is called ‘Mental Health Care’.
There is no way of reforming exploitation, it has to be stopped. No one is a USER of psychiatrists. If they say they are, it is only to be compliant, so that they are not subjected to more torture, oppression, denial, ostracization. The person who says they are a USER or CONSUMER, does it to please and they will continue to do so until there is another paradigm within which they can feel safe enough to survive without submitting and complying with violation. Exploitation is not a consumer market for those being exploited by force, or coercion that force will be used if they do not submit their bodies to be used by the exploiters. You cannot hold a person down and inject them with your product and demand that they agree it is good for them and increase the dose of the product that causes the person intense suffering, intense harm, and intentionally increase the dose or add other kinds of torturous ‘treatments’ until that persons submits to your will, then call that person a ‘consumer’ of your product. Yet, that’s exactly what psychiatrists hand-in-hand with government legislators and those commissioned to resolve and manage do. And, that is bloody ridiculous cruel, absolutely false concocting of public opinion to oppress victims further into a ‘consumer burden’ status.
The MHCC tell me that they only look at complaints from ‘users’ of ‘publically funded mental health services’. Users of psychiatrists? Where do these people get off calling victims that! Persecution-factory more like it. To be complicit in this exploitation racket, how disgusting! You’re afraid you’ll lose your job? Unless you’re being tortured, or under threat of potential torture, you’re part of the problem, particularly when the organisation you work for is set-up to sweep all the exploitation into the ‘medical complaints’ basket, and summarily dismiss the diabolical cruelty inflicted on victims by high-paid government-funded psychiatrists, as ‘consumerism’, when people who are subjected to forced psychiatry have no rights under consumer law as far as choosing to stop being subjected to torture.
Humans do not enjoy being tortured, they just do not want it, torturing a person the way psychiatrists do, is painful and is a slow death and maiming, without any kind of financial or social benefits. But yes, it is very easy to silence and victim-blame those who are exploited by psychiatrists and get them to submit to a term like ‘user/consumer’ if that is the only way they can survive the totalitarian dictatorship of their lives, that the rest of the population chooses not to recognise because they are not currently being oppressed by it.
If everyone was free to protest, then you’d see victims of psychiatrists in the street crying for freedom. When VOPs are not free, they’re trying to gain freedom and the most likely path to freedom, for a VOP, at the moment, is by pretending compliance. To openly defy psychiatrists you cannot be on a Treatment Order, financially and/or socially disenfranchised. To openly protest against psychiatrists you cannot be vulnerable in your workplace to dismissal for your activism. In effect rarely does a VOP have the right to protest without a very real threat of swift arbitrary detention and torture in the guise of care and medicine, when someone who knows they can be got at reports them for their activism. Any kind of criticism, protest and resistance to psychiatrists treatments is trained into nurses, medicos and social workers to be a ‘sign of being unwell.’ VOPs are literally not allowed protest without that being diagnosed when they are on treatment orders.
People must start standing with VOPs who are free enough to protest. Start making noise, particularly if someone is speaking out when a person is being arbitrarily detained and tortured.

The compliance pathway must not continue, its path to potential freedom, is not a pathway to follow, it is a perpetuation, a covering-up, a fearful shutting-down of the truth, and leaves a person open to the threat of forced psychiatry the rest of their life. Forcing people on mass to pretend compliance, or be indoctrinated into compliance is a massive silencing and victim-blaming that keeps Mental Health campaigns floating their disgusting scum propaganda funded by the bodies of those exploited, humans whose lives are disabled, ruined, destroyed, murdered… all for the mercenary government-medico legislated forced invasive, cruel, disabling murderous human research.

Australians can send OPCAT responses before 21/07/17

Yes, ALL forced psychiatry is TORTURE, no matter what the perpetrating psychiatrists call it. Psychiatrists torture systematically, intentially and knowingly causing harm. For a psychiatrist to say that they do not know of the effects of the drugs, is to say the psychiatrists have no knowledge of their pharmaceutical products, no listening skills when the people they are exploiting tell them of the harm happening to them from the drugs, and no observational skills to even observe harm caused by their forced treatments.
 Psychiatrists have an intent to cause increased harm to a person, until the person submits to the psychiatrist, a technique often used by torturers to gain various kinds of compliance with a cruel regime. The psychiatrists wants compliance so that the human experimentation inflicted, is done with the person’s agreement (the psychiatrist will say, it took the patient 2 weeks to ‘stablise’ and agree to their diagnosis and medical treatment.) Forcing agreement, is no agreement at all, particularly when you torture a person in the most cruel manner to get it, then use that to tick a box for human research sales. DISGUSTING.
