The Paranoid Olympics - About the Issues

Postby markR » Mon Sep 03, 2012 9:27 pm

This from the Press Release:

The Radical Mental Health campaign organisation MAD PRIDE are staging the latest in their series of fundraising events to cover the costs involved in campaigning and seeking to raise public awareness about the realities of how the government’s Welfare ‘reforms’ are affecting vulnerable people including those with mental health difficulties and issues. They are also active in supporting vulnerable people who have been badly affected by the whole benefit ‘reassessment’ process and seeking to develop and promote mutual peer advocacy support networks to help vulnerable people help each other to survive.

Like many other organisations representing and campaigning on behalf of disabled people we condemn the utter hypocrisy of Atos ‘Healthcare’ -one ‘branch’ the French based multinational Atos Origin, which also by the way stands to make a considerable profit as the IT provider for the Olympics -that is currently holding the contract to carry out the much criticised ‘Work Capability Assessment’ which has been responsible for wrongly finding ‘fit for work’ many disabled people, at an enormous cost to the public purse from the cost of the high percentage of successful appeals and causing huge distress for them, including already a number of recorded suicide attempts by people caused extreme distress by the failures of this ‘assessment’ process - being nominated as an official ‘sponsor’ for the Paralympic Games.

This seems just like complete hypocrisy- adding insult to injury, especially when you take into account the fact that a survey of people with disabilities carried out by the Disability organisation Scope showed that a large percentage of those interviewed did not support the idea of the Paralympics and thought it was condescending. Many felt it was a cost we could well do without when so many disabled people are being told they have to suffer because of ‘austerity’ measures whilst huge amount of public monies are being wasted on this unnecessary luxury that generates big profits for the major sponsors at the taxpayers expense.

A spokesperson for MAD PRIDE attempted to ask Paralympics athletes if they would raise concern about the involvement of Atos as a sponsor at the Mayor of London’s ‘Disability Capital’ conference last year, this was interrupted by the Tory deputy Mayor – who was supposedly the unbiased ‘Chair’ of the proceedings, however it was also clear that they did not have a clue about the concerns and issues we tried to raise.

Baroness Tanni Grey Thompson, a cross bench Peer who is also a Paralympics athlete, who did an excellent job in raising concerns about the implications of the Welfare ‘reforms’ in the lobby of the House of Lord’s– nevertheless refused to risk her ‘credibility’ in the Lords Lobby by raising the issue of Atos’ controversial involvement as sponsors of the Paralympics (we think this was more to do with a perceived threat to her involvement as a Paralympic athlete if she rocked the boat too much with the powers the be at LOCOG).

When MAD PRIDE had the opportunity to follow up this question as to exactly how and why this might be damaging to her credibility and what did this mean in terms of ‘freedom of speech’? She did respond by saying that it would be pointless to be making a plea to most of the Paralympics athletes to raise concerns on behalf of disadvantaged disabled people, as many of them have been brought up in a ‘bubble’, from privileged backgrounds, never exposed to the realities of having to survive on benefits.

She will probably not thank MAD PRIDE for quoting her on this in this way, but that is what she said.

MAD PRIDE’s view is if the Paralympic athletes cannot understand and support the needs of the other disabled people who are disadvantaged why should disabled people be supportive of them ?– it is not a foregone conclusion that disabled people will support the Paralympics.
MAD PRIDE are joining with other disability and counter Olympics campaigners to actively call for a boycott of the Paralympics and for pickets at the events protesting the involvement of Atos and other dubious sponsors of the Olympics and the Paralympics responsible for misery, deaths, pollution and exploitation on a global scale.

MAD PRIDE are already supporting a number of their vulnerable members to survive the maze of the benefit ‘reform’ process and the flawed assessments that are arising out of a system that has been criticised as ‘not fit for purpose’ by various informed commentators. There is already a Judicial Review of the process that has been applied for, that has now been granted. There will be many other vulnerable people at risk many of who won’t have supportive networks.

MAD PRIDE fear a rise in the numbers of suicide attempts as a direct result of these flawed ‘reforms’. Despite these criticisms and concerns Atos Healthcare continue to be awarded the contract to run these ‘work tests’ and have been made a sponsor for the Paralympics and now look set to be awarded at least part of the contracts to deal with the reassessment of people on Disability Living Allowance, the contracts have set ‘targets’ to remove people from benefits, which automatically squew the outcomes of the tests – leading people to suspect that there is another agenda – and calls into question exactly how ‘fair and reasonable’ these tests are and the ethics of a company like Atos who seem happy to make a profit out of peoples misery and think they can ‘ride out’ the public concerns being raised about this.

Mad Pride members in London like many other Londoners feel the Olympics to be no more than a colossally expensive pain in the neck – we are not opposed to people enjoying sport – but could they not do this somewhere else where it would not cause so much disruption to so many?
Why is it necessary for public monies to be spent on sporting activities when so much profit is generated by sporting organisations and sports wear manufacturers (often on the backs of exploited workers in Third World Countries) – especially at a time when those at the bottom of society are being made to suffer from the ‘need’ for austerity (whilst the rich continue to get richer by the minute).

We are told that the Olympics is supposed to be good for the economy in London, whilst it is true that some businesses have profited from it, many others have lost income because of it’s impact and none of this has ‘trickled down’ to the poorest in society- who are being told they have to accept living with ‘austerity’ to pay for it.

What we want to offer to people who are fed up to the back teeth with all the media propaganda and the hype about the Olympics is an alternative that is entertaining and completely different, we have assembled a cast of some of the most ‘off the wall’ unique and original poetry and music acts from around London and the UK, in keeping with MAD PRIDE’s reputation of staging top quality original acts.

The Paranoid Olympics About the Issues

Postby Scotthoozy » Mon Dec 17, 2018 8:15 pm

I approve of the logic behind this decision.

Obviously, that authoritative statement should put any concerns anyone has about this method to rest.



Женщина денно и нощно спорила с супругом. Супруг не поддавался и с ней ни в какую не соглашался. Она искала все новые аргументы, чтобы его убедить. Это продолжалось длительное время. В конце концов он решил прислушаться к ее словам. В этот же день стартовала фаза восстановления от конфликта, и у супруги случился инсульт. Инсульт проистекает в восстановительной фазе после конфликта невозможности интеллектуально решить некую задачу. Человек переживает, что он никак не может додуматься, как разрешить эту задачу. Он перебирает в голове множество вариантов, но все равно у него ничего не получается.


Если раскрасить на бумаге фигуру человека, которому идет инсульт, то зона головного мозга будет ярко красной (и нейрокартирование мозга, скорее всего, это покажет), и будет оставаться такой в течение длительного времени. Когда же накал постоянных и долгих мыслей проходит, у организма встает задача залечить все те нарушения в головном мозге, которые произошли во время переживаний. Если переживания были в течение долгого времени, то восстановительная фаза может проходить так бурно, что, в итоге, окажется несовместимой с жизнью (инфаркт протекает по такому же принципу). Помимо быстрой помощи официальной медицины в случае инсульта рекомендую изучить возможность быстрого приема гомеопатического препарата Арника 1000 (или любой имеющейся под рукой потенции), а также воспользоваться знаниями о действии акупрессуры и акупунктуры в этом случае.


Однако лучше состояния, приводящего к инсульту, вообще не допускать. Если чувствуете, что слишком много размышляете над проблемой, и «мозги начинают закипать», примите решение расслабиться как можно скорее, потому что после длинных переживаний, как вы теперь понимаете, расслабление может привести к нехорошим последствиям.
