Great Success at Stormont | Voices from the Shadows

“What ME Patients Wanted: “Don’t import psychiatric mismanagement of ME into Northern Ireland” they asked.

What ME Patients Got: Mr Jim Wells, the Health Minister-elect told them: “We are the converted. ME is NOT a psychiatric disorder”.”

Karina Hansen

Taken from the Justice for karina Hansen Facebook page:

“Karina Hansen is a 24 year old who is suffering from, a misunderstood and much maligned illness called, myalgic encephalomyelitis. She has a very severe form of the illness, which leaves her bedridden, in terrible pain, and constant exhaustion.

February 12, 2013, Danish doctors from the Hammel Neurocenter forcibly removed her from her home and family. She has not been permitted to see her parents, or lawyer and so far the family has been given no valid explanation as to why they cannot visit.

The psychiatrists involved appear to believe that M.E. is a psychological illness, when it has been a proven to be a medical illness since 1969. There are international guidelines available for treatment, but still, Karina has not been released.

Karina is too sick to stop them mistreating her, even though she does not wish to be there. She called her mother via her cell phone on February 13th and said ” How can I get out of here? I can’t take this.”

Please visit the Facebook Page Justice for Karina Hansen for more information and ways to help:

Bilderberg vs. Edward Snowden: Opposite Ends of the Moral Spectrum | Scriptonite Daily

This year, the party moved to Watford, England.  The UK Prime Minister David Cameron, Chancellor George Osborne, Former Justice Secretary Ken Clarke and Shadow Chancellor Ed Balls were all in attendance.  They were invited in their roles as elected representatives of the UK citizenry, without providing any means of for the electorate to know how they’re interests were being served, or not, by such attendance.

Labour MP Michael Meecher, speaking outside the so called ‘Great Wall of Watford’, the security cordon which kept the world from watching Bilderberg 2013, said:

“These are people who are all in the dominant positions in western capitalism.  They only meet in order to concert their plans about the future of capitalism over the immediate future…and my objection…is that it’s being done in utter secrecy.”
