An exhibition that describes psychiatry as an evil profession with ties to Nazism was given a free week-long show in the City Square by the Melbourne City Council.
The exhibition Psychiatry Exposed: Don’t Buy The Lies was flown in from Los Angeles and is run by the Scientology-sponsored group Citizens Commission on Human Rights.
The vivid exhibition was last year booted out of Chicago’s Thompson Centre. But for a week over Easter colour billboards depicting the so-called evils of psychiatry were set up in Swanston St.
Scientology was founded in the 1950s.
Its adherents equate medical drugs with illicit street drugs.
