Threat to children justifies additional exhibit hours, says group

In order to better warn parents of the threat to children of psychiatric drugs, the Citizens Commission on Human Rights New York announced Wednesday that their free “Psychiatry: An Industry of Death” exhibit is adding extra hours for working parents.

A special “Evening Opening” event on Friday, Oct. 21, from 6:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m., will mark the extended hours for the exhibit, which is at 368 Broadway, in Manhattan.

“Parents are coming into the exhibit and finding their suspicions confirmed about the dangers to their children,” said Ms. Verlene Cheeseboro, spokesperson for the exhibit. “We are accumulating more and more stories of parents being told their kids have a ‘chemical imbalance,’ that has to be treated with drugs. Yet this is done with no tests, and in fact there is no science showing such an imbalance.”

“Psychiatry: An Industry of Death,” consists of 14 documentary video stations, and covers other sorts of psychiatric damage as well: Psychoactive drug damage to adults; electroshock (still very much in use in New York, and across the country) and other violent “treatments;” destruction of creativity; psychiatry’s ties with racism, and more.

“But the danger to children is especially concerning,” said Ms. Cheeseboro. “If our children are destroyed – labeled as ‘mentally ill’, or made into legal drug addicts, or sedated and ‘dumbed down’ because someone can’t cope with normal childhood energy — then the future of our society is forfeit.”

The group has thus extended the hours for the exhibit, to 8:00 p.m., for the last week of the exhibit, starting Oct. 24, and on Oct. 21 will have a special event with speakers to include Rolando Bini, executive director of Parents in Action, talking about “How to Safeguard Your Children,” and WCHR radio host, Brother Bill Defosses, about the assault on our children. Everyone attending will receive a free DVD as well.

“Psychiatry: An Industry of Death,” will be in New York, at 368 Broadway (Canal Street subway stop), through Oct. 29. Admission is free; call CCHR NY at 646-222-9102 for further information.
