Saturday May 12: Come to the feminist demo against electroshock taking place in front of Queen’s Park. Did you know that ECT causes massive brain damage and memory loss? Did you know that the industry has been lying to the public about shock (ECT) for years? Did you know that women are more harmed from it than men? Did you know that 2 to 3 times as many women as men are targeted for it? Did you know that elderly women are the favourite target? If you want to learn more about this horrific treatment and support survivors and their allies who are trying to rid the world of this draconian “treatment”, come to this year’s annual demonstration against ECT, called “Stop Shocking Our Mothers and Grandmothers”. Sponsor: Coalition Against Psychiatric Assault. Date, May 12, time, noon. Place: Toronto, in front of Queen’s Park. And yes, in light of the fact that this is an attack on women, and the fact this is commonly and absurdly given for post-partum depression this event as always is purposively the day before Mother’s Day. Come join us. Join with activists and survivors all over the world (for there are demonstrations that day in many cities, including Cork Ireland). Listen to survivors testimonials . Hear a clip from the new feminist anti-shock novel The Other Mrs. Smith. Raise your voices in unison with us. Chant with us “We are The Other Mrs. Smith. Stop shock now!” And help put the legislature on notice that this ongoing attack on women will not be tolerated.
