Phoenix Rising, the psychiatric patients' rights magazine, has ceased publication.
Abstract: Phoenix Rising, the psychiatric patients' rights magazine, has ceased publication. In a farewell editorial, the publishing collective explained that the familiar problem of lack of money and lack of people was forcing them to close down. However, the collective does plan to take on other publishing projects in the future; being considered are a booklet on psychiatric drugs and an anthology of some of the best work published in Phoenix Rising. The collective says it is proud of what Phoenix Rising accomplished, including exposing Ewen Cameron's CIA-funded brainwashing experiments, producing theme issues on women, children, prisoners, the elderly, advocacy, homelessness, and electroshock, and the final issue, on lesbians and gay men. Phoenix Rising back issues are available from Phoenix Rising, 394 Euclid Street, Toronto, Ontario M6G 2S9, (416) 929-2079.
