People everywhere are taking back public space, calling for peaceful revolution and claiming economic and political democracy for all the people of the world. This is what many of us have been waiting for. It is also the meaning of human rights. Human rights do not come from abstractions created by lawyers, they come from people struggling with manifest injustice. Calling attention of the world to unjust, unnecessary suffering that often has a lot to do with inequality and exploitation.
CHRUSP stands with the 99% of the world, and welcomes the opportunity to re-make our world, with face to face horizontal relationships, courage and solidarity in the face of bullying, taking care of everyone's needs without shame. These values so well expressed in the people's assemblies and occupations are the same as those of our (peer, Mad, ex-mental patient, psychiatric abuse survivor) movement.
