I wonder if Howard University is aware that it is a co-sponsor of the
"Psychiatry: an Industry of Death" touring minstrel show? The Church of
Scientology front-group, the Citizens Commission on Human Rights (CCHR)
put out a flier proclaiming that Howard University is a co-sponsor of
their touring exhibit:

Psychiatry: an Industry of Death

The new Psychiatry: An Industry of Death touring exhibit & documentaries
will be at the Blackburn Center, 2400 6th Street NW, Washington DC, Nov
20 - 26 (closed for Thanksgiving Thurs and Fri) open from 9 am to 9 pm
daily. It is co-sponsored by CCHR and Howard University.


Howard University even has a medical school, so it seems unlikely that
it would participate in this Scientology nonsense that claims that the
holocaust and Nazism were created by psychiatrists.

Is there just some odd-ball professor at Howard that got involved, or is
the entire Howard University administration backing this nonsense?

I will write them to ask but did you notice that there is a spelling
error on the flyer?
It says:

Perhaps Howard University has not seen the "CCHR infiltration Plan" ? I
will ask this, too.

Thanks, Simkatu. Below is a list of the Howard University Officers.
This was an easy find.

Readers, consider writing these officers about their connection to
this flyer & CCHR:

I think it's important they get accurate information on just who CCHR
really is and what CCHR really believe in. Here's a link to the Perkins
story, and videos at CBS 48 HOURS.

Listed below are links to weblogs that reference Psychiatry: an Industry of

The whole content of the hate-filling cultic exhibition from scientology against
psychiatry is wrong and abusive; it should'nt be allowed in democratic

It is absolutely needed to realize that Hubbard, founder of the cult
scientology, was ordering in 1953 a device designed, to put some brutal pressure
into mental cases, in order to take control over them, and replace psychiatry by
this own evidence of "efficiency".

It's also very evident that a guy who wrote a "Manual of brainwashing" (while
attributing it to Beria, the then chief of the KGB), was not the best placed to
attack psychiatry, since his own group practices violent forms of brainwashing
(called "Rehabilitation Project Force").

People sentenced arbitrarily to go there for months or years at a time work 15
Hour at least every day, live in gulag's conditions, and have no rights. They
can die while in it, and are deprived of their family etc.

These people want to show that psychiatry is imperfect? Yes it is, but
scientology is much much worse.
