Dear Friend of Human Rights in Mental Health:
Had a chance to check out the "Web of Link$" surrounding Ray
Sandford's life yet?
It's super-urgent to ACT on these links now.
In just two days, Ray is scheduled to be woken up early in his
basement room in a group home in a quiet residential neighborhood
just north of Minneapolis, Minnesota.
Against his will, Ray will be escorted the 15 miles north to Mercy
Hospital, put under anesthesia, and given another involuntary,
outpatient electroshock, also known as electroconvulsive therapy (ECT).
Ray's has had more than 40 of these court-ordered electroshocks to
his brain. No end is in sight.
By a rotten coincidence, this next forced electroshock is on USA Tax
Day, Wednesday, 15 April 2009.
So especially during these next 48 hours please *act* on Ray's Web of
*ALL* of these many groups and individuals involved in Ray's life
receive taxpayer funding, directly or indirectly. A few are helping
Ray, some are harming him, many are silent:
Like Ray, do not give up. Never ever give up.
For the months I've worked with Ray on his campaign, both he and his
mother have continued to clearly, passionately and reasonably argue
against his ongoing forced electroshock.
I'm spiritually disgusted that during a time of economic crisis, our
scarce taxpayer dollars are wasted torturing an American citizen.
I say it's time to peacefully throw some tea into the harbor.
Are you with us?
Please ACT with Ray Sandford, his Mom, and all of us now:
1) VISIT Ray's Web of Link$:
2) CONTACT as many of the agencies and individuals as possible with a
civil message of support for Ray. Yes, there are more than two dozen.
Just do what you can. A few are supporting Ray, many are not.
3) FORWARD this alert to others.
4) LINK to all of Ray's Web of Link$ if you have a blog, web site,
Facebook page, posting on web forums, etc. Your linking can help make
it easier for all to search for who is helping Ray, and who is not.
The updated list of links is in this message *BELOW*, or click here:
Thank you, everyone, for your emergency support of Ray, his family,
and his human right to say "no" to electroshock.
