For the New Year 2010

For the New Year 2010

As the year ends, I find myself becoming interested in going deeper, exploring the underlying thoughts, feelings and intuitions that lie underneath a human rights analysis that can sometimes sound dry and boring. This year one of the most interesting things I did was complete an article about my work on the Disability Convention, and I found that it was a new kind of writing for me that allowed me to express more of what I really want people to know. I am hoping to do more of this in the coming year, to go beyond legal writing to something that blends the legal tools with underlying values and beliefs.

I am also moving towards actualizing the plan to make concrete recommendations for laws compliant with CRPD Article 12 on legal capacity. Apparently as a licensed attorney I should be able to use a nearby university law library to do the research that is the first step.

Working together with the community of users and survivors of psychiatry to use the human rights tools in practice is another goal for 2010. CHRUSP will be participating in the Universal Periodic Review process in the Human Rights Council when the United States comes under review, and hopes to coordinate a Disability cluster report in addition to raising the issues most important to users and survivors.

CHRUSP thanks all of its supporters for getting us off to a great start in our first year of existence and hopes for an even better 2010. Please stay in touch and let us know how we can continue to grow.

Tina we have been speaking in groups about the underlying real reason they wont change the forced rule. and Some feel it isn't what they say about a brain disorder . I think the underlying cause is still fear that we are dangerous and that the brain chemistry belief is just a cover up so they look more concrete in their evaluations.If we could erase the worlds fear of us we might have a better chance. Maybe laws that they cant say people are mentally ill when there is a problem. they cant say if they have venereal disease when there is a rape why should we have their label of medical disease reported all over the tv.I also am dishartened that as far as we have gone now all my new medical doctors know I have a label. to me that makes none of them safe.

The cheap UGG boots are something you can comfortably wear for more than 12 hours a <a href="http://www.uggbottes.com/"><strong>ugg bottes </strong></a> day.

The second reason is for fashion, the style of the classic tall and short UGG boots are celebrity endorsed and popular amongst <a href="http://www.uggbottes.com/"><strong>ugg france </strong></a> the fashion savvy. If you’re concerned with the comfort then you need to look at <a href="http://www.uggbottes.com/"><strong>ugg paris </strong></a> the following in an UGG boot.

Because an UGG boot with thin and <a href="http://www.uggbottes.com/"><strong>ugg pas cher </strong></a> scratchy inner fleece will not circulate as much air as one with thick and soft fibers.

Hey – great blog, just looking around some blogs, seems a really nice platform you are using. I’m currently using WordPress for a few of my blogs but looking to change one of them over to a platform similar to yours as a trial run. Anything in particular you would recommend about it?
