Irate demonstrators converged on the World Psychiatric Association Congress in Melbourne to protest psychiatric abuse.
Shouting slogans like “Stop drugging our kids” and “Leave our elderly alone,” the protesters demanded action.
Nearly 4 million Australians are on psychiatric drugs—drugs proven to increase the risk of violence and suicide, they said.
“Psychiatry has reclassified normal childhood behavior as a mental disease,” said one of the protesters. “It is time to bring psychiatry under the law.”
