By day: mum of an autistic tot. By night: mum of an autistic tot.
What a great start to 2012, the year France had declared it’s “national cause” to be autism. The film le Mur (the Wall) made by filmaker Sophie Robert is to be censored. It highlights the state funded torture of autistic people, mainly children, in the name of treatment. These “treatments” include the hideous Le Packing which I wrote about here.
This is the statement released yesterday by Support the Wall -Autism:
“The Wall” is censored and banned. The court has ordered Sophie Robert to remove the speech of the three plaintiffs from her movie. Furthermore, the court orders Sophie Robert to withdraw her movie from the internet. Otherwise she will have to pay 100 EUR per day to the plaintiffs.
Sophie Robert and her sole-proprietorship company “Océan Invisible Productions” are sentenced pay to at least 40 000 EUROS in damages and lawyers fees to the plaintiffs.
Sophie Robert has decided to appeal. Yet, she has to pay immediately the amount due.
I had the full version here but can now only provide the trailer (April 2012)
