March on Psychiatry prohibited

Tages-Anzeiger Zurich/December 14, 2000

Embrach, Switzerland - The municipal council has not granted approval for the Swiss Citizen's Commission on Human Rights (CCHR Switzerland) - an organization founded by the Scientology Church - to hold an anti-psychiatry rally.

According to municipal president Albert Berbier, leaflets distributed by CCHR Switzerland contain false and libelous statements about consumption of medication, drug abuse and medical treatment in the Hard clinic.

Fifty to a hundred sympathizers were to have taken part in a "silent march for the victims of psychiatry." The Scientologists plan on gathering in Embrach on Saturday despite the decision.
