Who’z Defining Mental Illness?

Originally posted on Moorbey'z Blog:

Psychological diagnoses made in bourgeois society seek not only to isolate and treat mental illness on an individual basis, but also says the illness neither affects, nor is affected by, others.

Taking isolation in prisons into account (where research shows that being locked up in itself can cause mental illness) one begins to see the so-called facts in bourgeois reasoning behind individual diagnoses as fallacious. Individual diagnosis benefits the bourgeoisie by separating the individual from h environment, forcing the illness to be considered through the biological lens where it is said to be internally developed. This method negates a persyn’s social and cultural influences, economic plight, outside forces acting upon h social milieu, as well as individual interpretation of all the above.

Inside isolation pods in U.$. prisons we are subject to sensory deprivation, restricted movement, lighted cells 24 hours a day, the constant clanging of…

Single parent? Attend the Jobcentre and get referred to social services as a troubled family. New trial at Ashton Jobcentre.

Originally posted on The poor side of life:

Yesterday I heard something very disturbing. A lady contacted me, she was very upset. She attended the Jobcentre for her signing on appointment and was confronted with something totally unexpected. She’s a very intelligent lady and thankfully she acted quickly and appropriately. She said hello to the advisor or job coach as they call them now. I don’t know why because they don’t coach you into anything except desperation. She’s been attending a mandatory work related course and had despite this completed all her Job searches correctly. The meeting then took a totally different atmosphere. The advisor suggested to her that she should be willing to get involved with a trial that they are running with Tameside Council. They are asking single parents to be assigned a social worker and a key worker so they can keep an eye on her… The reason for this? Because they said she hadn’t…

The country’z petition 4 Politikal Prisoner Oscar López Rivera

Originally posted on Moorbey'z Blog:

 
The hearings in Washington of the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights, dedicated to Puerto Rico and focused on the defense of individual liberties, must be interpreted, among other purposes, as a summons to the Obama Administration to finally end the prolonged political imprisonment of Oscar López Rivera. 
 
The human rights violations that leave the worst impression on a society are not only those that imply crimes or physical torture, but also those that exude the poison of intolerance and psychological abuse. 
 
But the claims revolved not just around López Rivera, since the petitioners, who traveled from Puerto Rico to the event of the organism of the Organization of American States (OAS), were members of civil rights groups, women’s organizations and law school clinics from three universities. There has probably never been a better stage for exposing the inequalities that emerge on a daily basis on the…

The John Birch Society opposed the Civil Rights Act of 1964, claiming it violated the Tenth Amendment to the United States Constitution and overstepped individual ‘states rights’ to enact laws regarding civil rights, not comprehending that civil rights is a national/federal issue and a right for all Americans and not a state issue for the caucasian privileged.

John Birch Society

The John Birch Society (JBS) is an American political advocacy group that supports anti-communism and limited government. It has been described as radical right.

Businessman and founder Robert W. Welch, Jr. (1899–1985) developed an elaborate organizational infrastructure in 1958 that enabled him to keep a very tight rein on the chapters. Its main activity in the 1960s, says Rick Perlstein, “comprised monthly meetings to watch a film by Welch, followed by writing postcards or letters to government officials linking specific…

Nothing to Lose But Our Chainz

One person involved in the Eric Garner case was indicted. Interestingly, it wasn’t white NYPD officer Daniel Pantaleo, who killed Garner by placing him in an illegal chokehold for allegedly selling “loosies” (untaxed cigarettes). It was Ramsey Orta: the 22-year-old Latino onlooker who filmed it. The police department responsible for killing Garner in July of last year is the same one that not only failed to arrest any of the officers involved but succeeded in arresting and indicting Orta for weapons charges less than a month later.

So let’s get this right. A white cop was filmed killing an unarmed black man in broad daylight. And what happens? Nothing. The officer walks free. Meanwhile the person who filmed it was arrested under suspicious circumstances just weeks later, only a few blocks away from where Garner took his last breath. And, as if…

Dear Mr Cameron,

The Human Rights Act 1998.

The right to life contained in Article 2:

imposes an obligation on the State to protect the right to life;
prohibits the State from intentionally killing; and
requires an effective and proper investigation into all deaths caused by the State.

Protects the right to life

Article 2 requires that the Government take steps to safeguard the lives of everyone within the UK’s jurisdiction:

by having effective criminal legislation (i.e. making murder and manslaughter an offence) and properly enforcing it;
by requiring the police to take reasonable steps to protect an individual’s life if they know or ought to know that there is a real and immediate risk to a person’s life – although this should not impose an impossible or disproportionate burden on the authorities; and by requiring the State to take appropriate steps to prevent accidental deaths by having a legal and administrative framework in place to provide effective deterrence against threats to the right to life.

The sanctions regime imposed by Iain Duncan Smith and your government are a clear violation of Article 2 of the Human Rights Act. Every sanction imposed for whatever length of time deprives people of the means of survival and poses a real and immediate risk to life.

It is irrelevant whether Iain Duncan Smith believes there is a link between sanctions and food bank usage or not, the violation of Article 2 is the act of imposing a sanction.

The state has an obligation to protect the right to life and the police are required to take reasonable steps to protect an individual’s life if they know or ought to know (my emphasis) that there is a real and immediate risk to a person’s life. This requirement applies for every sanction imposed. Your government is in breach of the humans rights act, why have not the police taken action and, at the very least, brought to a halt your inhuman sanctions regime until a thorough and proper investigation has taken place? The state is not above the law, though clearly you behave as if you are whilst knowingly and wilfully violating peoples right to life.
