His Excellency Thierry Rayer met His Excellency Adam Al Mulla, Ambassador Permanent of State of Kuweit to Unesco, to discuss the Right to Happiness issues.

PARIS, FRANCE, September 3, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — His Excellency Mr Adam Al Mulla will receive on September 21 at UNESCO Headquarters the dove with the golden clover for the World League for the Right to Happiness for the State of Kuweit, sponsored by Thierry Rayer, Ambassador of the Right to Happiness League in charge of Relations with States and their Representatives, Honorary Member, Golden Clover 2019.

Kuwait : Universal Art and Islam – the Al-Sabah Collection

The al Sabah collection began to take shape in 1975 when Sheikh Nasser Sabah al Ahmed al Sabah purchased the first object in the collection. It was an enamelled glass bottle from the mid-14th century that he had found in a London art gallery. At that time, the collection began as a hobby that he and his wife Sheikha Hussah Sabah al Salem al Sabah pursued – it soon developed into a full-fledged collection worthy of its place in a museum.
In 1983, as the collection grew, it left Sheikh Nasser’s private residence for its new location: the National Museum of Kuwait. The building was then known as Dar al Athar al Islamiyyah (DAI). Sheikha Hussah became the general director of the museum. The collection grew year after year to reach more than 30,000 objects today, all representing different chronological and geographical points of the Islamic world.

An impressive collection

The al Sabah collection is considered by international authorities to be one of the few most complete collections of Islamic art in the world. It has grown steadily since its creation, increasing its holdings in all categories: weapons and armour, calligraphy, carpets and textiles, coins, glass, hard stones, ivory, jewellery, manuscripts and miniatures, metal, stone and stucco work, and woodwork. The collection has a long history of publishing works that allow visitors to discover the works it holds. It regularly organizes exhibitions of international renown and has a tradition of lending certain objects to exhibitions elsewhere in the world.

Women’s right to vote, a victory for democracy

An “historic moment”. Kuwaiti women won the right to vote and stand for election for the first time in 2005, after an amendment to the electoral law passed on Monday (May 16) by the parliament of this conservative Gulf monarchy. The Islamist deputies, who were opposed to granting women their political rights, however succeeded, with their tribal allies in Parliament, in including in the amended text a clause stipulating that women must, in the exercise of their rights, to comply with “Islamic norms”. “I congratulate the Kuwaiti woman for obtaining her political rights,” Kuwaiti Prime Minister Sabah Al-Ahmad Al-Sabah said, announcing to reporters his intention to “appoint a woman to the government.

Traditional and modern at the same time, Kuwait is unique in many ways.

Traditional and modern at the same time, Kuwait is unique in many ways. In addition to its serious financial capacities, essentially provided by its oil revenues, the country stands out in particular by the solidity of its governmental institutions and its legal environment. Kuwait is also distinguished by its democratic institutions among the most advanced in the Arab world and by an active political life, notably through the media and civil society organizations.
The Kuwaiti market is reborn. Long known for its economic (and political) liberalism, Kuwait took a big step to improve its business environment by implementing, in 2013, a law for direct investments (FDI) aimed at alleviating the constraints of doing business. in Kuwait. Unlike some MENA markets, the Kuwaiti market is not saturated.

Happiness defined by the State of Kuweit

The right to happiness was born in France in the Declaration of the Rights of Man and of the Citizen of 1789. It is said in its introduction that the role of the State is to guarantee happiness to everyone, by fulfilling as much as it can the desires of every human being and allowing it to satisfy them in order to achieve happiness.
The state of Kuwait defines the right of happiness in two main concepts. First the concept of equality regardless of gender, race, special needs, and unprivileged. The second main concept is for Kuwait to provide the infrastructure for all those mentioned.

Art : a source of happiness

Works of art are a source of happiness but varying in degrees in individuals. We all know people who breathe art for a living, while others may be subconsciously enjoy it.
But the knowledge gap is still deep, and many art works are not sufficiently accessible to the citizens of the world.
Concrete initiatives lead by the State of Kuwait to stimulate individual and collective happiness
The State of Kuweit favors Art and creativity in all its forms, a sign of its dynamism, its world-renowned museum presentations and its international influence.

“The two disabilities I have don’t stop me.” – The inspiring story of Noah Long

Noah Long of Raleigh, North Carolina – Graduate of Governor Morehead School

RALEIGH, NC, USA, September 3, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Born completely blind and with cerebral palsy 27 years ago, Triangle native Noah Long is an inspiring role model – living independently, tech-savvy, well-spoken, and employed. “Noah is the most positive person I know,” said his father, David Long.

“At the age of 15, titanium rods were implanted on both sides of his spine from his neck to his hips,” said Noah’s grandmother, Joy Boyette. “After enduring multiple other surgeries, this was the only time I saw him cry.”

“My mother, she’s the one who mainly advocated for me when I was young,” said Noah. “But my grandparents, they’re the ones who pushed me, especially my grandfather.”

“Technology has been a big factor and equalizer in helping Noah cope with his blindness,” said grandfather, Bruno Toffolo. “If asked, he would probably tell you his only handicap might be his cerebral palsy which affects his mobility and ability to do some tasks as he’d like.”

“The technology exposure I received from Governor Morehead School was central to moving forward,” said Noah. “They’ve put in digital learning platforms and have an IT consultant. Public schools weren't exposing me to the new equipment we now have. The school is crucial to the visually impaired population with a core curriculum designed to teach blind students the skills they need to be independent and on their own.

“Governor Morehead School helped me with socialization, advocating for myself, training in mobility, occupational therapy, and physical therapy. I could easily relate to the other students, knowing that we have the same kind of visual-based disability. Class sizes are smaller, and this means more time can be spent with each student learning what he or she needs.”

Gifted with a great voice, Noah served as a receptionist while attending Governor Morehead School, and worked with Triangle Radio Reading Service on a variety of collaborations with the school. “The original goal was to create an opportunity for students to do a radio broadcast, which later evolved into an actual course. I believe the program is now in its sixth year,” said Noah.

“I am now happily employed by Easterseals United Cerebral Palsy. I’m responsible for answering phones, uploading documents to our residential service, creating consent forms in Microsoft Word, as well as using Microsoft Excel for tasks assigned by supervisors.

“The people I work with are amazed at the capabilities I have with technology and the fact that I can do the work. Once we got my software installed onto my PC, they were like, “Whoa! He can take off.” They saw my work in Excel. They didn’t know a blind person could use Excel. I’ve been showing them the equipment that I use to read in braille what they’re seeing on the computer screen.”

“Noah has a great attitude,” said Luanne Welch, President and CEO of Easterseals UCP NC & VA. “He has a passion for learning new things, and his big personality helps him connect with others and do his job well. I am truly inspired by Noah’s journey – personal and professional – and excited for his future. He’s an asset to any team, and I have no doubt he will achieve his career and life goals.”

“My plan is to keep my job with Easterseals UCP,” said Noah. “I work three days per week. Once I got this job, I was just happy. I don’t want to sit at home every day. Being a social butterfly, I hate to be socially isolated. You know what I’m saying?

“I know I have physical limitations, but my primary gift is my voice. In addition to Easterseals UCP, I’m hoping to connect with someone in the voiceover industry who can provide some guidance. I have the software and recording equipment at home and can easily send voice recordings to clients to put into their systems.”

“Noah’s dream job is to work in radio doing voice-overs,” said Casey Corder, Program Manager for Easterseals UCP. “This would be a perfect job for him because he has the perfect radio voice.”

“Outside of work, my goal is to find that special person to share my life with,” said Noah.

“As Noah’s mom, I hope he finds that special someone,” said Lamarr Scott. “No one knows what life has in store for them, but for Noah, he is forging his own path and not letting anything get in his way.”

“The two disabilities I have don’t stop me,” said Noah. “I’m up for any challenge. I’m very tech-savvy and able to easily help people when things go wrong with a computer. Another strength I have is teaching various technologies for the blind and visually impaired.

“A lot of companies don’t know how, and feel like they can’t accommodate someone with blindness and cerebral palsy. The best advice I can give to people with disabilities is to keep trying. Don’t give up.”

'Projection as Protest’ in front of UN Headquarters in New York on International Day of Disappeared: TGTE

Protest Outside UN in New York

Visuals of hundreds of Disappeared Tamils were screened outside the UN

UNITED NATIONS, NEW YORK, USA, September 2, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ —

Transnational Government of Tamil Eelam (TGTE) organized several protests in different parts of the world to observe the International Day of Disappeared on August 30.

This included a unique ‘Projection as Protest’ event in front of the United Nations Headquarters in New York where visuals of hundreds of Tamils who Disappeared were screened. Protests were also held in France, UK, Germany and Australia, while Tamils in Canada embarked on a 424 km ‘Walk for Justice’ to bring to public attention the issue of missing Tamil youth in Sri Lanka.

UN Ranked Sri Lanka as having the second highest number of the Disappeared in the world. According to Amnesty International, Sri Lanka has one of the world’s highest numbers of enforced disappearances, with a backlog of between 60,000 and 100,000 disappearances since the late 1980s.

The Office of Missing Persons (OMP) established in 2016 by the Sri Lankan government, under pressure from members of the United Nations Human Rights Council, had been done without any participation of families of those who had gone missing or of any international experts. After four years of existence, the OMP has not released even a list of combatants taken into custody during the armed conflict who later disappeared. Sri Lanka’s judiciary refuses to enforce an order to produce the list despite a senior military officer admitting to its existence in open court. Though Sri Lanka has also ratified the UN Convention for the Protection of All Persons from Enforced Disappearance, it had blocked the right of victims to be represented independently before the “Committee” established under the Convention by making reservation to article 31 of the Convention.

In January this year, Sri Lankan President Gotabaya Rajapaksa admitted that over 20,000 Tamil youth, who had surrendered to the Sri Lankan army at the end of the civil war in 2009, were dead – without explaining how they died or what happened to their remains.

‘The issue of missing Eelam Tamils is an affront to the entire international community and steps are urgently needed to bring those responsible to justice” said Ms Anuradha Mittal, an internationally renowned expert on development and human rights, who also spoke on the occasion. She further commented that the people who committed these crimes are back in power with complete impunity. What message does this send out to the world? If the Island nation with the 2nd largest number of disappearances can get away with complete impunity, it sends a message that any country can do the same. She further said if the government is not going to produce the list of those missing, it is up to us to create a database. When were they taken away? How did they disappear? Where are the ICRC reports? We cannot be silenced because if we are, that will happen again. Collect testimonies; continue to protest; Continue to send letters to the United Nation. She said it was wrong to see the problem as being that of only Eelam Tamils. Instead it should be taken up as a global human rights issue by all. Ms Mittal concluded by saying that it was vital to note that Anuradha, as an Indian, as a American, stood together with those families of the disappeared in Sri Lanka.

Mr. Koalaga Oumarou Paul, ONG-Diplomatie et Paix Internationale Executive Director, called for strong action because, living in 2020, it was not at all acceptable that we see enforced disappearances. He recalled similar situations seen in Africa, particularly in Algeria, Sudan and Zimbabwe. He concluded by saying that as the international community we supported you. You have a very strong voice from Africa and to the Tamil people, we say we are supporting your fight.

Mr. Vishwajit Sriramrajan, journalist and Human Rights Activist, stated that Amnesty International, Human Rights Watch and other groups have documented many of the disappearances and have attributed them to Sri Lankan security forces and other paramilitary groups that have been pro-government. The OMP was a wing of the Sri Lankan government that was created in 2016 in order to put an end to the disappearances. However, this was useless as the Sri Lankan government and the State were the ones responsible for the disappearances in the first place.

Mr. Visuvanathan Rudrakumaran, the Prime Minister of the TGTE, cited the OISL Report which stated that majority of the victims of the enforced disappearances were from the North East and the observations by Mr. Emmerson, the UN Special Rapporteur on Human Rights and Counterterrorism that “the Tamil community has borne the brunt of the state’s” well oiled torture apparatus, as the law is used disproportionately against them”. He went on to state that the human right violations, be it enforced disappearance or torture, were not ethnic neutral, but Tamil ethnic based. He further stated that Sri Lanka used enforced disappearance as a tool of Tamil genocide. He also cited the 6th Amendment to the Constitution which prohibited peaceful advocacy for an independent state which exclusively targeted the Tamils. ‘Ethnic centred systematic pervasive human rights violations warrant remedial justice’ he stated. LTTE combatants should be treated as Prisoners of War (POW) and be released immediately pursuant to Geneva Convention.

The UN Expert Panel Report and the OISL Report have recorded that the crimes were committed by the Sri Lankan State itself. However, to seek justice against the state of Sri Lanka in its domestic tribunals in foreign countries, the legal doctrine of “sovereign immunity” remained as an obstacle. Thus Rudrakumaran urged the international community to bring legislation to remove sovereign immunity as a defence to international crimes. He asked if sovereign immunity can be removed from being a defense to commercial transactions, why it could not be removed for international crimes. He further called on the Member States to the International Convention for the Protection of All Persons from Enforced disappearances to refer Sri Lanka to the “Committee” established under the Convention under Article 32 of the Convention.

Mr. Sinam Mohamad, a representative of the Syrian Democratic Council sent a message for the Webinar event. In the message he noted that “you and the Syrian Democratic Council actually share the same concerns as we suffered from the violations of human rights”.

Mr. Mahinthan Sivasubramaniam, the TGTE’s Minister for Human Rights and the Prosecution and Prevention of Genocide and Mass Atrocities and organizer of the Webinar gave the vote of thanks.

The event was moderated by Miss Abiramy Logeswaran and by Rathika Mampalam, both second generation Diaspora Tamils. The reverberating messag delivered by the young Tamil participants at the event was that until justice and freedom was obtained by Tamils, the struggle would continue.

Failure to Warn Claim Viable Despite Ethicon’s 2015 TVT-O IFU

An IFU must contain all warnings necessary to place doctors on notice of all material information when deciding the risk vs benefits of the medical device.

Degradation of polypropylene transobturator slings within the obturator internus muscle leads to latent injuries.”

— Dr. Greg Vigna

SANTA BARBARA, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, September 1, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Ethicon in 2015 largely re-wrote its Instructions for Use (IFU) for its polypropylene transvaginal mesh (TVM) mid-urethral slings used in the surgical management of stress urinary incontinence (SUI). An IFU must contain all warnings necessary to place doctors on notice of all material information required when deciding on the risk versus benefits of using the medical device. The doctors in turn can then pass on that information to their patients while determining whether to use the device at all.

Ethicon’s IFU for the Abbrevo and TVT-O devices—both transobturator slings—states the mesh material is “not absorbed, nor is it subject to degradation or weakening by the action of tissue enzymes.” The IFU also list “Adverse Reactions,” and those that relate to neurological injuries are as follows: “1) Punctures or lacerations of nerves, 2) Acute and/or chronic pain, 3) Pain with intercourse which in some patients may not resolve, 4) Neuromuscular problems including acute and/or chronic pain in the groin, thigh, leg, pelvic and/or abdominal area may occur.”

Greg Vigna, MD, JD, practicing physician, national pharmaceutical injury attorney, and Certified Life Care Planner states, “Polypropylene degrades and this has been known by manufacturers since the hamster study in the 1970’s, and this subject has been studied since the early 70’s with infrared spectroscopy and scanning electron microscopy. The conclusion is that polypropylene oxidizes and cracks over time. Either Ethicon doesn’t understand the medical definition of degradation or they continue to deceive the public for financial gain.”

Dr. Vigna continues, “Ethicon’s 2015 warning represents what the company knew in 2005 and doesn’t reflect what they know now as it relates to their dangerous TVT-O and Abbrevo transobturator slings. There is nothing in the IFU that relates to latent injuries to the pudendal nerve by way of traction or compression despite being outside the operative field. Pudendal neuralgia is directly related to perpetual inflammatory response from damage to the obturator internus muscle and the degradation of the mesh that passes through the muscle causing excessive scarification, contraction of the device, and ongoing free oxidative radical generation that cause pain.”

Dr. Vigna adds, “Obturator neuralgia can be caused by direct puncture or laceration of the nerve during implantation consistent with the warning listed in Ethicon’s IFU. This is deceitful for physicians as when they read the IFU this is not the usual mechanism for injury that causes obturator neuralgia from transobturator slings. In a vast majority of women who develop obturator neuralgia, during revision surgery the mesh is away from the nerve at a seemingly safe distance. Physicians are also largely unaware that the main branch of the pudendal nerve is at risk for injury or irritation from transobturator slings because the nerve is nowhere near the operative field. The pudendal nerve is, however, adjacent to the obturator internus muscle as it passes from the spine into the pelvis. Polypropylene devices that pierce and pass through muscles cause acute injury and spasms of the muscle. Every transobturator sling during implantation pierce and pass through the obturator internus muscle and will result in acute spasm and inflammation from direct injury. This may lead to traction or pulling of the adjacent obturator nerve and pudendal nerves and the result may be symptoms of acute obturator or pudendal neuralgia. Symptoms may be transient after implantation but in others the pain may continue chronically as the device degrades in the muscle causing further muscle shortening by way of fibrosis and spasm leading to traction and entrapment to the nerves.”

Dr. Vigna concludes, “Degradation of polypropylene transobturator slings within the obturator internus muscle leads to latent injuries. Latent pain syndromes caused by transobturator slings (TOT) include pudendal and obturator neuralgia, and these latent pain syndromes sometimes develop slowly over years after implantation in patients who initially had no pain. Ethicon provides no warning as to latent neurological injuries caused by degradation of its devices. The mechanism is clear as it relates to injury or irritation to the main branch of the obturator and pudendal nerve. The mechanism is likely mesh degradation within the obturator internus muscle. Clearly the design of pelvic organ prolapse devices with transobturator arms and TOT slings was not a good idea in back in 2005 or later when Ethicon continued marketing these devices into 2020 despite what is known. The damage that this company has caused a generation of women is unconscionable.”

Dr. Vigna is a California and Washington DC lawyer who focuses on catastrophic neurological injuries caused by transvaginal mesh devices including pudendal neuralgia, obturator neuralgia, ilioinguinal neuralgia, and Complex Regional Pain Syndrome. He has clients with these diagnoses filed around the country with Martin Baughman, a Dallas Texas firm. Ben Martin and Laura Baughman are national pharmaceutical injury trial attorneys in Dallas, Texas.

Watchdog Calls into Question Reliance on Risk Assessments During Suicide Awareness Month

“If suicide prevention programs and risk assessments are the answer then why is the rate of children killing themselves skyrocketing?” asks Diane Stein, President of CCHR Florida.

“If suicide prevention programs and risk assessments are the answer then why is the rate of children killing themselves skyrocketing?” asks Diane Stein, President of CCHR Florida.

Each year an average of 44,965 people commit suicide in the United States making it the 10th leading cause of death for Americans.

Each year an average of 44,965 people commit suicide in the United States making it the 10th leading cause of death for Americans.

Nearly two-thirds of the newspaper stories linking the holidays and suicide over the 2016-17 holiday season supported a false connection between the two, the Annenberg Public Policy Center has found.

Millions of children are given psychiatric labels for normal childhood behavior and prescribed psychiatric drugs that drive them to commit violent acts and suicide.

NBC News reported on April 22, 2018 that the Center for Disease Control (CDC) findings show that suicides in the U.S. are at the highest level in “almost three decades”.

Experts in the field have repeatedly concluded that there is not any one scale that can predict who will commit suicide to any useful degree.

Psychiatry has turned the labeling and marketing of normal human behavior as mental illness into an $80 billion psychotropic drug industry and they need to be held accountable for the lives lost.”

— Diane Stein, President CCHR Florida

CLEARWATER, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES, September 1, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Each year September is recognized as Suicide Awareness Month with September 6th through the 12th observed as National Suicide Prevention Week. The stated intention of these campaigns is to “inform and engage health professionals and the general public about suicide prevention and warning signs of suicide”. [1]

This year, in large part due to COVID-19, mental health advocates are predicting that “suicide is likely to become a more pressing concern as the pandemic spreads and has longer-term effects on the general population, the economy, and vulnerable groups”. One solution being offered up is suicide risk assessments. [2]

However, these advocates are ignoring the fact that a study of the past 40 years of suicide risk assessment research suggests that not only do these assessments not help but may actually cause harm by increasing the risk of suicide. [3,4]

Each year an average of 44,965 people commit suicide in the United States making it the 10th leading cause of death for Americans. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), suicide deaths were more than double those due to homicides in 2015, which means that for every murder reported in the news, there were at least 2 other deaths that occurred due to suicide. [5,6,7]

Additionally, suicide is the second-leading cause of death in young people in the US today and once again suicide risk assessment is often touted as the answer but experts in the field have repeatedly concluded that there is not any one scale that can predict who will commit suicide to any useful degree. [8,9]

Risk assessments, screenings, school mental health programs and more funding are often presented as the solutions to suicides rates and now with the current pandemic calls for more screenings are louder than ever, but according to the Florida chapter of the Citizens Commission on Human Rights (CCHR), a mental health watchdog organization, these so-called solutions are contributing to the problem.

“If suicide prevention programs and risk assessments are the answer then why is the rate of children killing themselves skyrocketing?” asks Diane Stein, President of CCHR Florida. [10]

CCHR’s recent analysis of available information from the Florida Department of Health, showed that the rate of youth suicides in Florida has continued to climb despite the time and money spent on programs to prevent suicide.

Could this be because suicide risk assessments don’t work and some assessments are even viewed as “junk science”?

Citing an article published in Scientific American which reported that a study of the past 40 years of suicide risk assessment research suggests that not only do these assessments not help but may actually cause harm by increasing the risk of suicide, CCHR believes that the misguided reliance on screenings, assessments and psychiatric drugs is clouding the search for real answers. [11]

“Why are suicide risk assessments still being used almost 10 years after the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence recommended that ‘assessment tools’ not be used?” asked Diane Stein. [12]

Even more alarming is a study published in February in the journal Psychology Science in the Public Interest by a group of lawyers and psychologists which found that many tests used in courtrooms are considered scientifically unreliable; in the headline, the journal dubbed them “junk science.” According to the study, a team of lawyers and psychologists reviewed 364 exams used in the legal system, finding a third of them don’t pass muster with forensic mental health experts. [13]

CCHR believes that normal responses to adversity are being labeled as mental illness and that instead of getting help people, including children, are being given dangerous drugs with side effects that include suicidal ideation and completed suicide.

This belief is not unfounded. Alison Escalante reported in an article this month titled “Researchers Doubt That Certain Mental Disorders Are Disorders At All”, how “in a compelling new paper, biological anthropologists call on the scientific community to rethink mental illness.” Escalante goes on to report that, “with a thorough review of the evidence, they show good reasons to think of depression or PTSD as responses to adversity rather than chemical imbalances. And ADHD could be a way of functioning that evolved in an ancestral environment, but doesn’t match the way we live today.” [14]

In addition to the risks when it comes to evaluating suicide through the use of unworkable assessments and screenings, CCHR is also alerting parents about the side effects of the drugs commonly prescribed when a child is labeled as mentally ill; side effects which include suicidal ideation. [15]

“There are almost 3.4 million children in this country taking psychiatric drugs for ADHD and almost 70,000 of these children are age 5 and under,” stated Stein. “It is known that children labeled with ADHD are at a greater risk for suicide yet the fact that the psychiatric drugs prescribed to ‘treat’ ADHD have suicidal ideation as a side effect is ignored.” [16]

“Parents need to not only know the risks associated with these drugs but also that they have the right in Florida to refuse psychological screening and drugging of their child,” said Stein. [17]

CCHR has challenged policy makers in Florida to start looking into the profession that has been charged with solving rising suicides, if they truly want to arrest the rate of suicides, especially youth suicides.

“Psychiatry has turned the labeling and marketing of normal human behavior as mental illness into an $80 billion psychotropic drug industry and they need to be held accountable for the lives lost,” said Stein.

To learn more about parental rights, suicide and psychiatric drug side effects please contact CCHR at 800-782-2878 or visit the center in downtown Clearwater at 109 N. Fort Harrison Ave.

Globale Führungspersonen rufen zur Beendigung von religiöser Unterdrückung im Namen der COVID-19-Bekämpfung auf

Donald Ramotar, ehemaliger Präsident von Guyana

Gemeinsamer Brief von CCLP

REPUBLIC OF KOREA , September 1, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Während die Verbreitung des Coronavirus auf der ganzen Welt zunimmt, erheben sich Stimmen aus der internationalen Gemeinschaft, um die religiöse Unterdrückung in Südkorea zu stoppen, einem Land, das als positives Beispiel bei der Bekämpfung von COVID-19 bekannt ist.

Am 17.August sandte die Coalition of Caribbean Leaders for Peace (CCLP), bestehend aus ehemaligen und gegenwärtigen Führungspersönlichkeiten aus dem karibischen Raum, einschließlich des ehemaligen Präsidenten des Menschenrechtsrates der Vereinten Nationen, einen gemeinsamen Brief an die südkoreanische Außenministerin Kang Kyeong-hwa, sowie die Hohe Kommissarin für Menschenrechte der Vereinten Nationen, Michelle Bachelet.

In dem Brief erklärten sie, dass die Regierungen trotz der Maßnahmen gegen Covid-19 weiterhin Verantwortung für den Schutz der Menschenrechte übernehmen müssten, unabhängig von Religion, ethnischer Zugehörigkeit oder sozioökonomischem Status. Sie äußerten sich besorgt über die fortlaufende Unterdrückung der Shincheonji-Kirche, einer christlichen Konfession aus Südkorea, die Anfang dieses Jahres eine unerwartete Masseninfektion erlitt.

Im Vorfeld der Briefsendung reichten 11 Nichtregierungsorganisationen, darunter die Coordination of Associations and Individuals for Freedom of Conscience (CAP-LC), beim UN-Generalsekretär ihren gemeinsamen „Jahresbericht für die Hohe Kommissarin für Menschenrechte der Vereinten Nationen“ ein, und bezogen sich dabei auf die gezielte Diskriminierung der Shincheonji-Kirche.

Der Jahresbericht trug den Titel „Shincheonji-Mitglieder als Sündenbocke für COVID-19 in der Republik Korea“.

Der Brief beschrieb die folgenden Tatsachen bezüglich Shincheonji und COVID-19:
o COVID-19 gelangte aus China nach Südkorea.
o Nach Angaben des Korea Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (KCDC) herrschte das Virus in der Stadt Daegu bereits vor der Infektion der Patientin 31 (aus der Shincheonji-Kirche in Daegu) vor.
o Die Verweigerung der Regierung, die Grenzen nach China zu schließen, trug erheblich zum Ausbruch bei.
o Angesichts der darauffolgenden, wachsenden Unzufriedenheit in der Bevölkerung gegenüber der Regierung, wies die Justizministerin Choo Mi-ae der Staatsanwaltschaft an, gegen Shincheonji zu ermitteln.
o Der Vizegesundheitsminister bestätigte, dass die Liste der Gemeindemitglieder der Shincheonji-Kirche nicht wesentlich von der Liste abwich, die die Regierung eingezogen und überprüft hat.
o Die Staatsanwälte haben die Führungspersonen von Shincheonji festgenommen, mit der Begründung, dass die von Shincheonji vorgelegte Liste der Gemeindemitglieder nicht vollständig sei.

Unter Bezugnahme auf den Bericht „Informationsblatt über die globale Reaktion auf das Coronavirus (COVID-19) und die Auswirkungen auf religiöse Praktiken und die Religionsfreiheit“ der U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom (USCIRF) bekräftigten die Organisationen in ihrem gemeinsamen Schreiben, dass Südkorea ein anschauliches Beispiel dafür liefert, wie Notfälle im Bereich der öffentlichen Gesundheit das Risiko der Diskriminierung von religiösen Minderheiten erhöhen können.

Sie wiesen darauf hin, dass das Schweigen der südkoreanischen Regierung über die aktuelle Situation einen gefährlichen globalen Beispielfall für die Ermöglichung ähnlicher Verfolgung, Gewalt und Schikane gegenüber anderer religiöser Minderheiten darstellen würde. Sie forderten die koreanische Regierung nachdrücklich dazu auf, „einzuschreiten, um dieser Diskriminierung ein Ende zu setzen”.

CCHR Honors Co-founder Thomas Szasz’s Legacy Against Coercive Psychiatry

thomas-szasz

CCHR dispels the myths attributed to Szasz, an iconic psychiatrist who defied “psychiatric slavery” and “totalitarian control,” and whose works against coercive psychiatry are now recognized the world over, even by the UN.

CCHR dispels the myths attributed to Szasz, an iconic psychiatrist who defied “psychiatric slavery” and “totalitarian control”

LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, September 1, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — September 8 marks the eight-year anniversary of the death of Thomas Szasz, professor of psychiatry, co-founder of the mental health industry watchdog, Citizens Commission on Human Rights and one of the most prolific authors against coercive psychiatry. With more than 35 books published since 1961, he challenged conventional psychiatry, including in Psychiatric Slavery, where he took aim at psychiatric interventions imposed on persons by force, including involuntary commitment and treatment.[1]

Hungarian born Szasz, who was a professor of psychiatry at the State University of New York Upstate Medical University and a distinguished lifetime fellow of the American Psychiatric Association, said, “Involuntary mental hospitalization is like slavery. Refining the standards for commitment is like prettifying the slave plantations. The problem is not how to improve commitment, but how to abolish it.”[2]

An estimated 400,000 Americans are involuntarily committed to psychiatric facilities every year and potentially forcibly drugged.[3] African Americans are disproportionately subjected to coercive and restrictive measures, including 72-hour involuntary commitment, seclusion, restraints and forcibly drugged.[4] Szasz’s works should serve as a warning to African Americans today facing psychiatric recommendations for more “mental health services” and government funds allocated to psychiatrically treat the impact of racism, CCHR says.

The collaboration between government and psychiatry results in what Szasz called the “Therapeutic State,” a system in which disapproved thoughts, emotions, and actions are repressed through pseudomedical interventions.[5] For example, during the 1960s Civil Rights movement, psychiatrists diagnosed Blacks marching against racism with “protest psychosis.”[6] Advertisements for powerful antipsychotic drugs in psychiatric journals used pictures of angry Black men to influence the prescriptions of these damaging drugs to African Americans.[7]

Szasz would have argued that such “classification” is an example of how psychiatrists define what they consider “(mis)behavior as illness,” which “provides an ideological justification for state-sponsored social control”—a form of totalitarianism.[8]

Szasz was often misquoted that he didn’t believe in “mental illness,” but psychiatrists were obfuscating the fact that he said behavioral disorders are not physical diseases, that unlike in medicine, there are no physical tests to demonstrate mental problems as “diseases.”[9]

He was very clear on this point, stating: “In asserting that there is no such thing as mental illness, I do not deny that people have problems coping with life and each other.”[10]

Today, Szasz’s view is accepted medical fact. As the American Psychological Society reported: “Diagnosing mental illness isn't like diagnosing other chronic diseases. Heart disease is identified with the help of blood tests and electrocardiograms. Diabetes is diagnosed by measuring blood glucose levels. But classifying mental illness is a more subjective endeavor. No blood test exists for depression; no X-ray can identify a child at risk of developing bipolar disorder.”[11]

The chemical imbalance in the brain causing depression theory has been completely discredited—invented by psychopharmaceutical makers to sell SSRI antidepressants. In February 2020, Philip Hickey, Ph.D., a retired psychologist, went a great deal further stating: “The spurious chemical imbalance theory of depression is arguably the most destructive thing that psychiatry has ever done.”[12]

Szasz maintained throughout his career that he was not “antipsychiatry” but was rather anti-coercive psychiatry. He opposed involuntary commitment and enforced treatment.[13] His legacy is now embedded in United Nations documents.

• 2013: The UN Special Rapporteur on Torture recommended to: “Impose an absolute ban on all forced and non-consensual medical interventions against persons with disabilities, including the non-consensual administration of psychosurgery, electroshock and mind-altering drugs such as neuroleptics, the use of restraint and solitary confinement, for both long- and short-term application. The obligation to end forced psychiatric interventions based solely on grounds of disability is of immediate application and scarce financial resources cannot justify postponement of its implementation.”[14]

• 2017: UN Special Rapporteur on the right to health, Dr. Dainius Pūras, called for a revolution in mental health care to “end decades of neglect, abuse and violence.” “There is now unequivocal evidence of the failures of a system that relies too heavily on the biomedical model of mental health services, including the front-line and excessive use of psychotropic medicines, and yet these models persist,” Dr. Pūras, said.[15]

• 2018: UN Human Rights Council (HRC) supported a ban on all forced medical interventions against persons with disabilities, including the administration of electroshock, psychosurgery, and mind-altering drugs. HRC strongly stated that countries “should reframe and recognize these practices as constituting torture or other cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment….”[16]

Szasz became a co-founder of CCHR in its forming year, 1969, helping release a fellow Hungarian from involuntary detainment when psychiatrists labeled him as “schizophrenic” when he was simply speaking Hungarian.

Szasz said of CCHR: “We should honor CCHR because it is really the organization that for the first time in human history has organized a politically, socially, internationally significant voice to combat psychiatry. This has never happened in human history before.”

CCHR is a mental health watchdog responsible for more than 180 laws that protect patients from damaging psychiatric practices. DONATE to support its work here: https://www.cchrint.org/cchrint-donate/
