UOttawa students protest exhibition that calls psychiatry 'an industry of death' - 2020-01-29
A controversial anti-psychiatry exhibition sponsored by a group affiliated with the Church of Scientology has University of Ottawa students demanding that the show be removed from campus.
Among other claims, the free exhibition maintains that the pharmaceutical industry invents mental health conditions in order to sell more drugs and that the justification for the Holocaust was based on eugenics theory advanced in psychiatry and psychology.
Titled Psychiatry: An Industry of Death, it is sponsored by a group called the Citizens Commission on Human Rights. The exhibition's five-day tenure in rented space in the Jock Turcot University Centre ends on Friday.
