WHY COMPULSORY TREATMENT ORDERS ARE A LOAD OF BOLLOCKS.

COMPULSORY TRATMENT ORDERS WILL FORCE PEOPLE TO TAKE 'HEAVY' NEUROLEPTIC 
DRUGS WHEN THEY HAVE BEEN DISCHARGED FROM HOSPITAL.

Remember the Poll Tax? When has coercion ever been beneficial? It has always 
driven people underground.
Psychiatric Patients have been campaigning for over 750 years for the right 
to be treated as an equal, not as an object of sympathy, but a fellow 
citizen with all the rights that go with it. In our society, you've got the 
right to be a curry eating BNP Leader but not to go 'Mad'. Being 'Mad', 
means forcibly being detained by the State, at its whim and released when 
you're seen to conform.
Because Drug Companies conduct 85% of research, no wonder that 'treatment' 
is now purely drugs. For NHS Patients, there's no therapy of 'bonking 
celebrities in the Priory'. Infamous for their GM Foods, xeno-transplants, 
(putting a monkey's head on a pig's body or vice versa), Novartis. Producers 
of the 'wonder drug' for schizophrenia, Clozaril.   Not-surprisingly, 
Novartis have seen a market in the 'captive patient' on Compulsory Treatment 
Orders. Ritalin, produced by Novartis, conveniently medicalises our kids for 
a lifetime of prescribed chemicals.
Do drugs really deal with the problems? Short term, maybe, but in the long 
term they cause further addictions. Valium, once thrown at every Housewife 
in Britain, with the washing powder, is more addictive than Heroin.
MAD PRIDE is not anti-drugs but we are wary of who's pushing them. Novartis 
made over £40 billion profit last year. Did they invest that in your 
community?
There are many self-help groups all over the country where people have 
managed to wean themselves of Psychiatric Drugs and lead successful lives. 
These groups are mostly unfunded and unpublicised, because guess who 
controls the funding?………….Drug Companies!
Whilst there is a child or pensioner in poverty, there will always be 
………….….Tony Blair.
Whilst there are Psychiatric Patients, being forced to take drugs, there 
will always be……MAD PRIDE.
